How to keep your bathroom clean

How to keep your bathroom clean
8th October 2012

There is nothing worse than a dirty bathroom. After all, it is the place that you and your family go to get clean so you want your bathroom suite to be free from dirt at all times.

However, with everyone in the house using the bathroom on a daily basis to clean their teeth, shower and bathe, it can seem like a never ending battle to keep grime at bay.

As well as creating an unsightly scene, a dirty bathroom is unhygienic and can result with you or your loved ones developing an illness after coming into contact with germs.

There are a few things you can do to ensure your bathroom stays clean, though, with homeowners advised to get into a regular cleaning routine to ensure that dirt does not build up in hard to reach spots such as around basin taps and behind the toilet.

Invest in a quality multi-purpose cleaner to keep your sink and surfaces clean. Particular care should be made to ensure that these products can not cause damage to a particular material. For example, abrasive cleaners and wire wool pads should not be used on a marble counter as they can cause permanent scratching.

Baking soda should be sprinkled on any persistent stains and scrubbed off lightly to remove them, with a polishing cleanser used on any dirt which remains.

You can make your bathroom mirrors spotless by simply applying some vinegar to it with a piece of newspaper. This ensures that your mirror does not have any marks left on it, as is often the case when using a sponge.

Turning attention to the bath and shower enclosures, it is vitally important that you do all you can to prevent the growth of mildew. Specialist mildew inhibitors can be used to keep it at bay, while simply keeping your bathroom well aerated will also help.

Keep tiles clean by running the shower at its highest temperature to loosen any dirt and then scrub any remaining grime away. A shower head should also be cleaned regularly by taking it apart and soaking it in vinegar.

Finally, when it comes to everyone's least favourite job - cleaning the toilet – keep it simple by pouring half a cup of chlorine bleach down the bowl and scrubbing it with a long toilet brush around ten minutes later.
