If you want to take your bathroom from grimy to sparkling clean, professional cleaners have seven of the best bathroom cleaning tips for you here.
- Get rid of build-up and restore the shine of your faucets, showerheads, walls, and glass elements with white vinegar. The acidity of the vinegar will break down the mineral deposits and at the same time polish glass, tiles and metal hardware.
- Use baking soda and citric acid to clean your sink, counter and toilet bowls. Not only with these two ingredients effectively break down dirt, but they can restore the shine of granite and porcelain material as well.
- Freshen up your plastic shower curtains by putting them in the washing machine. Add vinegar to the water; the acidity from the vinegar will get rid of mildew and other stains.
- Clean the gunky grout of your bathroom tiles with powdered oxygen bleach and water. This powerful product will loosen dirt right away that you won’t even need to scrub vigorously to restore the grout’s original color.
- Remove the toilet seat to get rid of gunk in the corners of the base of the tank. Also, with disinfectant wipes, wipe down the toilet seat and the rim of the toilet bowl.
- If you have a bathtub, fill it up with water and add baking soda and vinegar to it. This will get rid of soap stains on the surface and the drain. Plus, this will disinfect the tub effectively.
- If you’re dealing with molds, prepare the following cleaning supplies:
- A small bucket
- Rubber gloves
- Cotton coils
- Ventilation mask
Combine the bleach and water in the small bucket and soak the cotton coils in the solution. Afterwards, place the soaked cotton coils in the areas with molds and just let them sit for a couple of hours or so (do this while wearing rubber gloves and ventilation mask).
“This will take care of the molds. No need to rinse once you’ve done a thorough wipe down of the “infected” areas.”
The pungent scent of the bleach solution will go away when you air out the bathroom.
