A Handy Guide To Keeping Your Bathroom Clean26Sep 2014
The bathroom or bathrooms in your home see a lot of action, meaning that they need to be cleaned, tidied and sanitised regularly to ensure that they remain as free from bacteria as possible. If you struggle to keep your bathroom clean, or if you’re looking for some easy and quick bathroom cleaning tips then have a look at this handy guide to keeping a cleaner bathroom!1) Make a cleaning schedule.If your bathroom never looks as clean as it should then it’s a good idea to sit down and make a list of the jobs that need doing. It’s not just your toilet and bath that need to be cleaned, but your toothbrush holders, floors, shower head, taps and more! Go through your bathroom and list your problem areas, small jobs and the common bathroom cleaning jobs too. Once you’ve done this you can decide what jobs can be done on which days, when you might like to do a deep-clean and when you can fit this into your busy schedule! If you share your home with friends or family members then you might like to hang your cleaning schedule up where it can be seen by everyone so that you can get a helping hand to keep on top of your bathroom cleaning!2) Make sure your cupboards are well-stocked!There are lots of cleaning products that you’re going to need to keep your bathroom sanitary, so check what you already have and what you might need. From scouring pads to antibacterial sprays and from drain unblockers to floor cleaner, make sure that you always have everything that you need in your cupboards so there really is no excuse to avoid your bathroom cleaning!3) Cleaning your toilet.Cleaning your toilet can be quick and easy. Start by cleaning the bowl with a toilet brush and bleach, or try using white vinegar and water or lemon juice and water for a less chemical clean. For tough stains try letting the bleach or cleaning product sit for a while. Once this is done wipe down the cistern, toilet handle and both the top and undersides of your toilet seat. For extra freshness try adding a deodorising clip-on product to your toilet bowl – just remember to change it regularly!4) Cleaning your bath or shower.Unblock your drains regularly to ensure that water can be drained properly. Start by removing limescale and cleansing your taps with a mixture of white vinegar and water. You can also use this to prevent mould from growing on your tiling. Next move onto the sides of the bath or shower, scrubbing with a scouring pad and antibacterial cleanser. Rinse away and move onto your shower head using the same method. Antibacterial cleansing sprays are great for cleaning the inside of your bath and shower, though if you have a glass shower a glass cleanser is also a great choice! 5) Small bathroom cleaning jobs.Don’t forget to regularly clean your soap dish, toilet brush, bath mats, shower curtains, windows, mirrors, windowsills, light fittings and toothbrush holders too, as mould, dirt and grime can build-up in these areas!
