All about Cleaning the Bathroom Effectively
Published on Thursday, 22 November 2012
People go to the bathroom to wash off the dirt from their bodies, and generally this is one of the areas that get dirty quite quickly. The bathroom shouldn't be let to accumulate dirt and the regular cleanup is an absolute must. Having a shower or a bath in a sparkling clean bathroom is a total pleasure.
The good thing is that bathrooms are not that hard to clean, but they do need regular attention and care. In fact, the materials used in bathrooms (for the walls, floors and even the furniture items) are all easy to clean. Even if you mix some water and liquid soap you can wipe down the area in a hassle-free way. Cleaning a bathroom is all about spotting the stains and removing the dirt and debris on a regular basis. Most people clean the bathroom once a week or even once every two weeks. The reason for that is because it seems that it takes too much time. However, the truth is that some of the most stubborn dirt in the bathroom builds up because you have skipped a few weeks and have neglected the bathroom. Most people use the bathroom for various purposes, not just a shower: for cleaning pots, doing some hand washing, cleaning shoes, cleaning carpets and rugs, getting ready to go out. The bathroom has an enormous buildup of all sorts of products and materials: dirt, mud, rust, hair spray, soap, shampoo, gels, toothpaste, shaving cream and many others. If you go into your bathroom right now you can surely spot some stains from various products that you've been using recently. Every buildup of such products attracts dirt like a magnet and it gets harder to deal with the stain later on. So what can you do in order to maintain a cleaner bathroom? First of all, you need to understand that cleaning as you go is perhaps the best advice anyone can give you in terms of cleaning. It can be applied to any area and issue, not just the bathroom. One of the best natural products for cleaning the bathroom's tiles, for example, is white vinegar. Pour some on the tiles after you've had a shower, rub with a soft sponge and then rinse with cool water. The tiles will look much better immediately. Don't like the way the mirror looks? Why don't you take a clean cloth and a glass sprayer and clean it? It will take you literally not more than three minutes, but the result will certainly make you happier. Check for mold and mildew, as well as rust and don't keep everything you possible can in the bathroom. Don't forget to clean under the shampoos, conditioners and other products too. If you want to scratch some stained areas efficiently you can use an old toothbrush as it will help you reach the crevices easier. Every time you clean the bathroom, open the door wide and make sure there is good ventilation in the room. Don't mix products and if you need to use more than one commercial cleaner, always rinse well the first one, before applying the second. If you have marble in the bathroom, don't rub too hard and use a softer sponge to prevent any scratches. Find a good detergent which works for your bathroom and stick to it. Remember to use an abrasive cloth for the stained areas and always allow a few minutes for the product to work on the surface. Remember that after taking a shower or a bath, the bathroom needs to get dry as quickly as possible. Wipe down the walls with a dry cloth and leave the door open.
