Everyone enjoys showering and getting ready for their day in a tidy and sanitary space. It is sometimes difficult to maintain a spotless house when life is hectic. To keep your bathroom tidy without spending hours scrubbing, these helpful tips for cleaning your bathroom will come in handy.
Address Mold As Soon As You See It
Once mold gets out of control, it can be tough to remove. Keep a bottle of cleaner with bleach on hand. Clean the area when you notice mold or mildew on the grout or caulk. Regular cleaning helps keep mold under control and won’t allow it to spread.
Clean the Toilet
Keep the toilet clean by scrubbing it with a brush frequently. Store toilet bowl cleaner and a cleaning brush beneath the bathroom sink or behind the toilet. At least weekly, scrub the toilet bowl. Afterward, use a spray cleaner to dampen the seat and clean it with a microfiber cloth. These cloths can be washed in the laundry using hot water and reused.
Wash the Floor Last When Cleaning the Bathroom
As you wipe down counters, scrub the tub, and dust the bathroom, lint and dirt may collect on the floor. It makes sense to clean the floors last. Sweep the bathroom, then use a floor cleaner to remove stubborn dirt and stains.
Use Descaling Cleaners on Fixtures
If your fixtures look cloudy and blotchy, use a descaling cleaner. These spots are usually mineral deposits from hard water. Read the instructions on the descaling cleaner bottle before using it. Most will tell you to apply the product, let it sit for 5 minutes, and wipe it away. Use the same descaling cleaner to remove soap scum from your shower.
Rinse the Shower Stall
Cleaning your shower is a lot easier if you have a detachable showerhead. After taking a shower, use the handheld showerhead to rinse the walls, starting at the top. If you rinse the shower every time you use it, you’ll see less soap scum build-up.
Bathroom Cleaning Tips: Clean a Little Every Day
If you spend a few minutes tidying up and decluttering the bathroom every day, your deep cleaning sessions will be easier. Pick up stray tissues, put bath products back where they belong, wipe down the counters, and rinse the sink. Even if you only do one task each day, your bathroom will stay cleaner for longer.
