Everyone from Martha Stewart to Kim and Aggie have weighed in on the topic of keeping a bathroom clean, and there are so many complicated tips hovering around, which ones do you follow? Do you want to spend your day mixing baking powder with various different household substances and scrubbing at your bathroom tiles, or do you believe prevention is better than cure where cleaning is concerned? Read this guide created with help from the experts at bellabathrooms.co.uk to see how you could turn a dingy bathroom into a sparkling paradise.
The first step in the guide is to ensure that everything has a place. This might sound simple, but it’s surprising how much mess can accumulate because people don’t know where their toothbrush goes, or where the toilet paper is stored. Strive for near-empty surfaces in the bathroom, because this is where the grime and bacteria builds up. Having bottles of lotions and potions all over a surface will only make it harder to clean anyway, when it comes down to it. Also note that shoving everything haphazardly into a drawer or cupboard does not count as assigning it a place. You can never have enough soap dishes, shower caddies or bathroom shelves! Give everything a home, label each spot if you like, and marvel at how much cleaner your bathroom already looks.
The second step is to delegate one minute in every day to perform some small bathroom task, whether it is re-organising your medicine cabinet, wiping wall tiles to remove residue build-up, or simply cleaning the mirror with a dedicated glass cleaner. Rather than slowly building up into a messy room after a big clean, this helps the bathroom to stay sparklingly clean over a longer period, with no obvious ‘mess’, just small tasks that need to be carried out.
Air is an important factor in the bathroom; the condensation and the steam that is often created in this room can make it a veritable breeding ground for germs and for mildew. Keep windows open wherever possible and ensure that the room has proper ventilation to decrease moisture and keep the air flowing.
It is also vital to use the right cleaning products. Many simple bathroom sprays will leave smudge marks on mirrors and stainless steel taps and fittings. Use a dedicated glass cleaner for these, and rub with newspaper to get them gleaming. Lemon juice and white vinegar are saviours when it comes to bathroom cleaning, and the citrusy scent created by the lemon juice will have the room smelling beautifully clean without having to resort to abrasive substances that can ruin bathtubs and shower enclosures over time.
Once a month, it is wise to do a big clean. Arm yourself with baking soda, rubber gloves, lemon juice and white vinegar, and get scrubbing every surface. Pour baking soda down your drains to clear them out, and put shower curtain, rugs and mats into the washing machine for a thorough clean. In addition to your one minute a day, this will ensure you bathroom never looks visibly dirty.
