Deep Cleaning Your Bathroom22Aug 2014
The bathroom or bathrooms in your home see a lot of traffic and it’s important to give them a thorough deep clean every once in a while to ensure that they’re always looking clean and feeling sanitary. If you want some quick and easy bathroom deep-cleaning tips then you don’t need to look any further! 1) Washing the items in your bathroom.The items in your bathroom pick up a lot of dirt, grime and bacteria, so if you’re doing a deep clean it’s important to ensure that everything is thoroughly sanitised. Soap dishes, toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, shower curtains and bath mats can all get dirty over time, so clean them properly whenever you do a bathroom deep clean. Use a sanitising spray and clean cloth to wipe down your soap dishes and toothbrush holders. If your toothbrush holder is particularly stained then you might want to soak it in a mixture of warm water and lemon juice to help to lift the dirt, leaving it looking as good as new! Don’t forget to throw your bath mats into the washing machine, and leave your shower curtain to soak in a lemon and water mixture to ensure that dirt and mould can easily be wiped away. 2) Mopping your bathroom floor.You probably use a standard floor cleaner for your bathroom floor, but for a deep clean you can always use warm water with a drop of bleach. This will be much stronger than most floor cleaners and will leave your bathroom sparklingly clean! Check that your bathroom floor is made of a material that can’t be damaged by bleach before using it so as to avoid damaging it. 3) Cleaning your toilet.Use a thick bleach to clean your toilet. Start by leaving the bleach to sit in the bowl for up to an hour before scrubbing with a toilet brush. Make sure to also wipe down the cistern and toilet seat with an antibacterial spray, and don’t forget to clean the toilet handle or chain as well, as this is can get full of bacteria over time! If you don’t like to use harsh chemicals in your bathroom then try using either lemon juice or white vinegar mixed with water, for a powerful and effective all-natural antibacterial cleanser. 4) Cleaning your tiles.Both the tiles and the grout in your bathroom can become grimy over time, and the grout can suffer from mildew and mould. Avoid this happening in your bathroom by cleaning the tiles and grout with a soft toothbrush and a lemon and water mixture. This will not only help to clear away dirt, but the natural acids in the lemon will help to combat future mould problems! 5) Cleaning your taps.The taps in your bathroom also need a bit of tender loving care to keep them sanitary and sparklingly clean. Using an old toothbrush you can gently buff at stainless steel taps with white vinegar and water. The mixture won’t just sanitise and remove dirt and grime from your taps, but it will also leave them looking brighter and shinier than you’ve ever seen them! 6) Cleaning your mirrors.Instead of using small circular motions to buff your glass cleaner onto your mirror, try drawing small “S” shapes instead. This will leave your mirrors looking clean and will ensure there’s no residue left behind and no smears or marks either!
