COVID-19 Update: Domestic Cleaners will remain fully operational during the November lockdown: Find out more
If you were to answer the question of which room of the house you like cleaning the least, your answer would likely be the bathroom. It is no secret that cleaning tile, grout and toilets from various kind of build-up is somewhat bothersome. But like any other cleaning chore, this is one you need to address sooner rather than later. It is because your family uses the bathroom daily and you don’t want it to turn into a mess. Thankfully, there is a simple guide you can follow to make the process more manageable.
If you wish to be really thorough in your efforts, you will do well to first remove everything from the bathroom – shampoos, toothbrushes, liquid soap container, towels, etc. The reason for this step is so that you have more space and to address every surface in the room without said items getting in the way. It is also a good opportunity to clear out some clutter from the room.
Okay, this may not be on your list of priorities every single time you clean the bathroom, but it is a chore you have to address every now and then. The fan accumulates dust, which can not only slow it down and damage it but also lowers the air quality of the room. Basically, what you need to do is remove the cover to clean separately and vacuum the interior with the appropriate attachment. Wipe with a damp cloth after that, and you are done.
Next up, you need to focus your attention on one of the central areas of the bathroom, where you take your showers. There is likely a lot of build-up there, so you will need to use an all-purpose cleaner for the task. Spray it on the surface and let it sit for a while. If possible, get the bathroom nice and steamy before that. The cleaner and steam will mix up, and when you leave it like that for a while, it will be super easy to clean afterwards.
The sink is another area of the bathroom you are likely to have some trouble with. If there are stains of any kind, spray your bathroom cleaner there and let it sit. You can use an eco-friendly alternative of one part vinegar and one part water. It will address most of the bathroom stains, such as limescale, toothpaste, etc. Let it sit for a while and then wipe with a sponge or a microfiber cloth. If there are any stains around the faucet of the sink, use a toothbrush to get to them. While you are at it, if the sink is clogged, you can easily fix the issue with some vinegar and baking soda. Pour these two components down the drain, followed by some hot water. The clog will be gone in no time.
There is no way to call it ‘bathroom cleaning’ if you don’t clean the toilet. You can utilise baking soda for this area of the room. Scrub some of it on the inside and let it sit for a while. It will make any build up easy to remove. Don’t forget to clean under the toilet as well, since that is one area people often forget about, but it accumulates a lot of dust.
Now that you know this guide, you can follow it to clean the bathroom easily. It won’t take you long, and the results will be splendid.
