Cleaning the bathroom may not top most people’s list of favorite chores, but it is an integral part of staying healthy. To prevent messes such as soap scum buildup and hair accumulation from becoming major cleanup duties, institute an inexpensive once-a-week routine.
Dust off surfaces before wiping and mopping the floor using a fresh cloth or paper towel each time.
Maintaining clean bathroom tiles that are free from mildew, soap scum, hard water stains and germs doesn’t have to be an impossible feat; all it requires is some planning and regular upkeep.
No matter whether you opt for natural cleaners such as vinegar and baking soda or commercial ones, it’s essential that you follow manufacturer instructions when cleaning tile floors. Wear gloves when handling products; set up an easily ventilated area; test small sections of tile prior to using; use gloves where necessary and ensure safety before proceeding further with any project.
Grout-Eez tile cleaner can easily take care of tough rust or calcium stains on tiles without harsh chemicals or strenuous scrubbing, providing an effortless clean without heavy scrubbing required for traditional methods. Keep squeegee and color-coded dry rags handy after each cleaning session for quick wiping down when finished with tubs, sinks, toilets and floors for the quickest way possible afterward and keep that shiny new look for longer!
After a long day, most people like to unwind by relaxing in the bathtub – but this can be tricky in an unclean bathtub! Eliminating limescale, soap scum, mineral deposits and dirt may seem impossible but with some effort you can have your tub looking like new in no time!
To remove dirt and scum from a bathtub, sprinkle your desired cleaner (Bar Keepers Friend or homemade vinegar cleaning solution) over its surface and scrub using either a sponge or scrub brush. A scrub brush may also come in handy to reach corners and hard-to-reach areas. If there are any stubborn stains present on your tub it’s important to pre-treat these first. Mix baking soda with water into a paste then apply directly over them before rinsing/scrubbing as required afterwards – this will ensure all traces have been completely removed when finished cleaning your tub!
Sink basin and drain can quickly become the target of bacteria growth, leading to clogs. For maximum effectiveness use a general bathroom cleaner spray combined with either a microfibre cloth or old toothbrush to wipe all surfaces of the sink including faucets, taps and drains during this cleaning time – be sure to move items such as soap trays and toothbrush holders from one surface to another during this step!
Avoid cleaners that contain harsh abrasive cleaners as these can damage stainless steel and porcelain sinks and cause rust to form underneath them. Baking soda and distilled vinegar are effective at eliminating hard water stains while non-toxic natural products like Lysol Power Bathroom Cleaner can eliminate mildew stains from most sinks.
Use an enzyme drain cleaner like this one monthly to avoid clogs in your drain pipe. If that doesn’t work, try bending a coat hanger into a hook shape with wire loops attached so that hair and other gunk can be easily dislodged from it before trying a plunger to break through any blockages that remain.
Professional cleaners employ a specific procedure when it comes to toilet cleaning; there’s an efficient and effective way to do the job. To begin, squirt toilet cleaner into the bowl interior and allow it to set for several minutes (as per product recommendations).
As soon as your toilet bowl has been thoroughly scrubbed with the toilet brush, make sure you reach all corners. For stubborn stains that remain, try pouring hydrogen peroxide on it for several minutes before scrubbing away again.
Clean the toilet seat, lid and hardware attachments using a disinfectant bathroom cleaner, making sure to wipe down both handles as well. Be sure to use something washable such as disinfectant wipes, reusable rags or paper towels so as not to spread germs around the room. A spare toothbrush may come in handy for reaching hard-to-reach spots like shower doors while a squeegee may come in handy to clear away water spots or dirt deposits on hard-to-reach surfaces like doors.
