Clean the Bathtub/Shower
Cleaning the bathtub or shower may require some serious elbow grease. Sometime using an all-purpose cleaner will do the trick. However, there’s times when stains and build-up is too strong for some all-purpose cleaners. When this happens, place a layer of baking soda in your tub/shower and let it sit for about thirty minutes. After you’ve let the baking soda sit, scrub with a rag or sponge. You can do the same with the bathtub fixtures, shower head and shower doors.
Clean the Sink
The bathroom sink and mirror area is something that you should wipe down every day. This area should stay fairly clean, but you will still want to give it a good deep cleaning. Take the time to clean the counters, faucet fixtures and mirrors.
Clean the Toilet
The toilet is one of the dirtiest areas in the bathroom. When it comes to cleaning your toilet, there are a few options. You can use an all-purpose cleaner, baking soda or vinegar. You want to make sure to clean every area on the outside of the toilet, the inside of the toilet and make sure to get behind the toilet. Use a good scrubbing brush to help you get every inch of the toilet clean. If there are any odors around the toilet, let some baking soda sit to take care of an unpleasant odor.
Clean the Floors
More than likely, your bathroom has tile floors. Start by sweeping or vacuuming the floors to make sure there isn’t any dust r objects left on the floor. Once you’ve swept or vacuumed the floors, it’s time to give the grout a good cleaning. The best way to get your grout clean is to use a wire bristle brush and some grout cleaner.
Once you’ve given the grout a good cleaning, it’s time to mop the floor. Sometimes, it may take mopping the floor twice to get it sparking clean.
Bathroom Cleaning Tips
Use a steam cleaner to quickly clean and sterilize any area in your bathroom.
Keep your trash cans smelling clean and fresh by sprinkling a light layer of baking soda to the bottom of the can.
Using throw rugs and fabric toilet seat covers can trap unpleasant odors. If possible stay away from using any type of rugs or seat covers.
