Hairspray, toothpaste, mouthwash - not to fret! Keep a can of premoistened wipes handy (usually right inside the cabinet under your vanity) and wipe down your sink & vanity once a night before going to bed. That 30 seconds will make a world of difference.
To get rid of that harsh toilet ring - it is always important that you drain the toiletbowl water first so that your chemical does not become concentrated as soon as it hits the bowl.
