10 BATHROOM CLEANING TIPS AND TRICKS
It’s your time to clean the bathroom again and you’re fearing the worst already. What awaits you this time? The hair clogged drain, the peculiar ceiling stain, the toothpaste explosion or all of the above?
You’re already drained out of your energy just thinking about it. But, hey! This time you may really end up having a different perspective if you just sit back for a minute and listen to me. So here are 10 tips and tricks to keep your bathroom perfectly clean with very less effort.
- Brewing: - If you’re all about natural cleaning methods, you’ll love this one. All you have to do is brew 3 bags of strong black tea in a normal drinking glass and further transfer it to a spraying bottle. Now you can use to it to clean the glass or the mirror in your bathroom. And while wiping, instead of paper towels try newspaper. For best results, two or more applications may be necessary but I promise you’ll see astonishing results.
- Scrubbing: - Nobody likes scrubbing the shower but it has to be done. It’s probably long overdue. If you want to tackle that soap scum and awful grime, get yourself a dish wand and fill it with half vinegar and half liquid soap. It’s quick; it’s easy and can be also accomplished while showering.
- Hard water stains: - If you want to remove the stubborn water stains from your fixtures, all you have to do is brush it with a lemon and some grease. The acid in the lemon breaks down the water stains and it easily comes off with the grease by your hand.
- Toothbrush holder: - It’s one of the most neglected items in our bathroom. You don’t have to do anything at all to get rid of the grime from it. Just toss it up in the dishwasher next time along with your dishes and trust me, you’ll be surprised with the outcome.
- Sink: - Next time you clean the toilet, try using vinegar. It’s an eco-friendly method to get rid of all the bacteria, germs and molds. Just add vinegar in your flush chamber and clean the rim of the toilet with the help of a spray bottle. Now take some toilet paper and soak it with some vinegar again. Push the papers to the inside rim of the toilet rim and let it sit for several minutes. Meanwhile, pour some vinegar into the bowl and clean it with the bowl scrubber. Finally, remove the toilet papers and brush it with a toothbrush before finally flushing. That toilet will be so clean you can almost move it to your living room.
- Toilet brush: - One of the major reasons for the nasty smell in your bathroom is the toilet brush which often goes unnoticed. The best way to clean it is to pour some all-purpose cleaner at the bottom of the holder. And just make sure you dip it every now and then to keep your brush nice and super clean.
- Washer/Dryer: - For those who happen to have a washer or dryer in their bathroom. Do you know clogged dryer vents cause thousands of house fire each year? But, it’s also one of those things which can be easily avoided. So, while you’re cleaning your bathroom. Bring your vacuum and stick the top with a paper towel roll which now you can use to access all the earlier inaccessible parts.
- Shower curtains: -The moist environment of the bathroom is just made for mild dew. So, don’t be surprised when it appears on your shower curtains. To get rid of it, add ½ cup borax and ½ cup vinegar along with two cups of water. Apply it to the affected areas and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Now scrub them off with a sponge or a cloth.
- Ceiling: - To clean the ceiling, fill a bucket with equal parts of water and white vinegar. Dip a long-handled sponge mop in the solution and reach out to a whole section of the ceiling at a single time.
- Clogged showerheads: - Remove the showerhead and dissolve 4-5 denture tablets in a bowl of water and put the head to soak. Let it sit for a couple of hours and you’ll have an almost brand new shower head in time.
I hope these tips and tricks will help to contribute in having a fantastically clean and gleaming bathroom. And you’ll never be worried about having to deal with the nightmares of an unhygienic bathroom.
