Simple tricks to keep your bathroom sparkling clean
Given that the bathroom is a place in your home you and your family will likely be using with greater frequency than almost any other room, it’s not easy to keep clean. This applies regardless of whether you are dealing with your teenage children or your spouse, either of which may be spending too much time there or not being clean enough.
But, with a few straightforward tricks and tips, and some cheap but good quality cleaning supplies, you can keep your bathroom disinfected, clean and easy and ready to use. Here some simple tips:
A. Keeping a squeegee in the shower and using it to remove moisture after a shower or bath can be a great way to keep mold and mildew problems at bay.
B. Use white vinegar to ensure toilet cleaning is easy is very simple but effect. It’s no more than soaking a few paper towels in the vinegar and using them to line the rim. After, just add roughly a gallon of said vinegar to the bowl of the loo and allow it to do its work while you work on cleaning the rest of the bathroom; then, simply remove the paper towels and flush. You’ll be left with a loo that is shiny and clean. This method works on all kinds of stains, hard water stains most so.
C. You can keep your bathroom cabinets organised by using bins and baskets. Use them to store such things as extra toothbrushes, makeup, etc, and remember that having everything neatly organised can decrease cleaning time by 50%.
D. Using a hand pump container of soap rather than bar soap will make it easier to clean your countertops and also remove the problems which can be caused by soap scum.
E. It’s important for your towels to dry quickly. For this reason, if you’re looking to ensure this, giving them more space with an over the door towel bar can be a great method.
F. Make sure you take the time to experiment with different bathroom cleaners to find whichever one is most effective.
G. Stashing a spray bottle under the sink (making access easier) will speed up cleaning.
H. To prevent soap scum and mildew before they start, try spraying your shower curtain with a bleach solution. Twice a day is enough to make this work.
I. Try filling your sink with warm water and adding a capful of your solution of bleach. Allow this water to sit while you clean the rest of the bathroom, then just remove the plug, letting out the water and dirt.
J. Use dryer sheets to clean up dust bunnies. Reserving a few of these sheets for the bathroom which can be used to clean up debris from the floor and said dust bunnies can be very effective.
Finally, be aware that while cleaning the bathroom is never pleasant, the tips explained above (which are all time saving) can reduce the amount of time you spend there. You can use that saved time to chill out, be calm and relaxed and just enjoy your home.
