Bathroom Cleaning Tips
Although it may seem easier and right to hire a maid to clean your bathroom, it is not necessary to have one. By following some easy steps that are listed below, you can also make your bathroom sparkle. Most people hire maids not because they can’t clean their bathrooms but because they don’t know how to clean their bathrooms. Most of them think that is a really hard job which they cannot accomplish in a few minutes, especially for those who have work. Below are some few simple steps that may help make your bathroom cleaning task easy and quick:
Cleaning the Mirrors and Windows
You don’t need to buy expensive cleaning solutions to make your windows and mirrors sparkle. All that you need is a third cup of vinegar and a quarter cup of rubbing alcohol. Mix the two and dilute them with some water. After this pour the contents into a spray bottle. All that you need is to spray the mixture on the surface of your mirrors or windows and then wipe them with a dry cloth. The will be sparkling clean.
Eliminating Rings in Toilet Bowls
You might have noted that there is a ring that forms on the flushing toilet bowls. This might be hard to scrub off. To eliminate them, pour a cup of vinegar and another cup of baking soda. Wait for about one hour before flushing or using the toilet. Once the hour is over, on flushing the toilet, it should be as clean as new. You should repeat the process at least once a month depending on how fast the ring forms.
Wipe the Bathroom after Use
Another easy way of maintaining the bathroom clean is by ensuring that it is well wiped after use. Leaving moisture on the walls and the mirrors encourages the accumulation of dirt. It is also worth noting that the natural soap doesn’t cause as much scum buildup as other soaps do. So, whenever possible, it is recommended that you use the natural soap.
Spraying citrus-based solutions and waiting for about ten minutes before wiping it will also help the walls to remain sparkling. For the shower curtains, all you need is to wash them normally or in the washing machine.
Stopping Mildew Growth
Mildew thrives on wet wood surfaces. For this reason, your bathroom ceilings will be prone to it. To stop this, every six months, spray the ceiling with hydrogen peroxide solution and water. Wait for another 2 hours and spray it again and again after 24 hrs. You might need to spray it again, depending on far mildew has spread.
As seen, the above are some easy steps that any homeowner can embrace. Sparing some few minutes after every few days to clean your bathroom may make it not only sparkling but also healthy to use. It may also help avert some common accidents that happen in bathrooms; for instance, slippery floors that are as a result of leaving the floors wet.
