The mould in between the joints, toothpaste stains in the bottom of the sink, hair that gets lost in the shower tray, and dirty laundry that accumulates in the corner of the room, the bathroom is one of the rooms in the house that gets dirty the fastest...
The bathroom must therefore be cleaned often! To help you clean your bathroom, here are a few steps to follow and the advice.
De-clutter and tidy up your bathroom
Before cleaning your bathroom, start by de-cluttering. Even if it is often one of the smallest rooms in a house, the bathroom is also one of the places where things often pile up the most! Towels, linen, endless beauty products, shaving or hairdressing accessories…
We recommend that you start by sorting out your belongings. To do this, get some small storage boxes to help you organize the space better. To hang your linens and towels, use hooks and put a basket for dirty laundry as well.
Clean your sink, shower and tub
Now that this first step is done, it’s time to clean your shower or bathtub and sink. Limescale deposits and mould are often prevalent in these areas.
Choose natural products rather than chemical agents to eliminate plaque deposits on your faucets and all your surfaces. Opt for lemon or white vinegar. They work wonders in the bathroom! Spray them on the areas to be cleaned and leave them on for a few minutes before rinsing.
To get rid of mould, especially on tile grout, don’t use too aggressive products, as they may eat away the grout. Instead, use a mixture of water, scouring powder, and baking soda . Brush the joints of your bathroom with this mixture and a small used toothbrush to eliminate mould.
Remember to wash your shower curtain. It is also very exposed to bacteria, and as a result, it tends to turn black. A simple mixture of water and soap is enough to restore its colour. You can also unhook it and wash it in the washing machine at 30°.
Make your faucets shine.
Bathroom faucets are also a delicate area that you should consider cleaning regularly.They tend to tarnish from the constant contact with water and cosmetics, so it is essential to disinfect and scrub them regularly with lemon or vinegar to eliminate limescale and make them shine.
After each use, remember to rub them with a dry cloth. This will prevent limescale buildup and keep your bathroom looking its best.
Eliminate bad odours from your pipes.
If your drains have a few bad odours, pour white spirit vinegar down them regularly. This miracle product is both a cleaner and a disinfectant, and it is ideal for cleaning up the pipes and getting rid of this problem. However, if the phenomenon persists, you can also purify your bathroom pipes by running boiling water through them with a few tablespoons of baking soda.
Clean your mirrors
Because nothing is more pleasant than looking at yourself in a clean mirror, we also recommend that you thoroughly clean your mirrors. To make them shine, there are several tricks available to you:
Use a mixture of water and white vinegar. Rub them with a sponge soaked in dishwashing liquid and hot water. Make them shine with lemon juice. Each of these methods has already proven its effectiveness in the bathroom. You are free to choose your method.
Wash the tiled walls of your bathroom.
Because the bathroom floor is not the only surface in the room covered with tile, it is also necessary to clean the walls frequently. Bathroom tiles tend to get dirty quickly. To make it shine, dishwashing liquid is an unstoppable product! Mixed with hot water, put the mixture in a spray bottle and spray your wall tiles. Let it sit for a few hours.
Scrub your bathroom floors
Finally, all that’s left to do is clean and scrub the floors. As with any other room, start by vacuuming, and it will effectively remove all the hair and dust that clutters the room. Then use a mop with water and black soap.
