Bathroom cleaning hacks for older homes?

I thought I knew how to clean bathrooms? But my new bathroom is a dust-sink, hair-trap, and I can never seem to get the porous white sink, tub, and toilet to appear clean, despite frequent cleaning. Looking for practical hacks or product recommendations from people who have similar vintage or antique bathrooms. [more inside]

Help identify a musty smell in a bathroom?

Our small main floor 2-piece bathroom has had a musty smell for the last couple of months. We can't seem to identify the source and aside from the smell there is no sign that anything is wrong. We had a plumber in and he spotted a very small amount of (orangy coloured) mould inside the toilet tank, but even after cleaning that up with MoldEx the smell has not abated. What could it be?

If it's yellow, let it mellow into a hard sandy crust at the bottom of the toilet.

My roommate and I long ago decided that we would not flush pee. Save water and all. The only problem is this: apparently if you let urine sit in the toilet, it turns into a really attractive layer of brown sediment, in a spot that is very difficult to clean with a toilet brush . . . right up to the front of the little recess on the bottom, and right in the back of it as well. Is there anything we can add to the reservoir to keep this from happening? [more inside]

Different Whites in the Bathroom?

I want to buy a sink for my bathroom. The sink I want is an American Standard. The toilet I already bought is a Kohler. Both are listed as white, but I can't tell if the whites match. Any one know a good resource for checking this out? I could go to the Depot, but they don't have exactly the sink I'm looking for, so I will probably have to do a internet faith order.

An answer to the TP question?

Is the metal flap on Japanese and European TP dispensers (photo) an indication that they've resolved the seemingly endless debate one hears in America about which orientation of the toilet paper roll (over or under) is better, or correct?
