Cleaning your bathroom can be extremely stressful. Not only because some of the cleaning tasks are a little tricky, but also because it’s so important!
The bathroom is where we go to get clean – so it’s not rocket science to expect that they are clean, too!
The last thing anyone wants is to be brushing their teeth in a sink that is crawling with bacteria or showering in a space filled with mould and mildew.
It is easy to keep putting off giving your bathroom a thorough scrub because it does present a daunting task especially in your tile and grout. There are a lot of arduous tasks involved in keeping a bathroom shiny clean.
Don’t have the time or simply don’t want to do it yourself? We understand you probably don’t like cleaning. But guess what? We LOVE it!
This week we’re sharing some helpful bathroom cleaning tips.
Bathroom cleaning tips for your shower
The hardest part to clean of any bathroom is undeniably the shower.
It’s constantly wet and builds up germs and bacteria very quickly.
Not only that, it’s a little bit awkward to have to clean: it’s exceptionally difficult to give your shower a proper clean without actually taking a shower yourself!
The first hack you need to know for cleaning your shower (and anywhere else, for that matter) is to follow the top-down approach – start at the top and work your way down.
It can be tempting to get straight down to the shower floor and scrub at the build up of mould and mildew in your tiles.
However, by starting at the top of the shower, you ensure that you won’t need to re-clean anything as grime and dirt makes its way down your shower screen and to the floor.
The best way to clean shower screens
While more hygienic than shower curtains, shower screens still go through a lot.
They have soap, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash splashed all over them every time someone has a shower. As a result it doesn’t take long for shower screens to start looking a little foggy as soap scum builds.
The real problem with a shower screen is that even after you scrub it down, it still looks streaky and unclean.
The solution? First you need to make the shower screen as clean as possible by wiping away all the soap and shampoo residue with a cleaning agent.
Next, mix vinegar and water together in a spray bottle. Spray the shower glass with the mix and wipe down with a paper towel. A paper towel is less likely to leave fibres and streaks behind, allowing you to achieve the perfect streak-free shower screen!
Bathroom cleaning hacks for your toilet
Let’s be honest, the only thing worse than a dirty toilet is having to clean it!
The key to keeping your toilet in its best condition is frequent, low-intensity cleaning (even when it doesn’t look dirty) rather than waiting until you’ve got visible signs of grime building up around the rim, resulting in a challenging and time-consuming clean.
We recommend inserting a dissolvable tablet or disc into your toilet bowl, that dissolves over time and freshens your toilet each time you flush. This ensures your toilet receives a quick chemical clean regularly.
This mistake a lot of people make when they use these kind of products, is that they don’t actually clean their toilet, thinking that the tablet will do all the dirty work.
Your toilet will still need a good scrub with a toilet brush and your favourite toilet cleaning liquid.
It’s important to remember that dissolvable disc and cubes only rinse off your toilet. It is imperative that you scrub away any invisible bacteria or germs that are building up inside your toilet bowl.
For the best results, you should do this weekly.
