Tricks and tips to effortlessly get your bathroom so clean it sparkles
The room you get clean in has to be clean. But with so much water and dirt around, bathrooms can get dirty and mouldy quickly.
This is SO important. Even on cold days, make sure you air your bathroom thoroughly. It will help prevent mould, mildew, and bad smells from forming.
Shower curtains mouldy?
Throw these through a gentle cycle in your washing machine, with your regular washing powder. Dry outside in the sun.
Cleaning your shower
Clean the shower after you’ve used it, while the room is still damp. Spray on a cleaning agent, let sit for 10 minutes and watch the combination of steam and cleaner do their thing. A 1:1 vinegar and water solution is perfect for this too. Wipe off with a microfiber cloth.
The shower head needs a clean as well. Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar and secure over the shower head using a rubber band. Leave for a few hours or overnight- this is truly a magical cleaning trick!
Sink and other surfaces
Use a surface cleaner and wipe down surfaces, wash off with water and a cloth. For fiddly corners or grout, use an old toothbrush.
The dreaded task- the toilet clean
Sorry, but there’s no quick or pleasant way to clean a toilet. Put cleaner in the bowl and let sit for a few minutes. Give it a good scrub, and then let it sit for a few minutes more to dissolve any build-up. Give it another brush, and then flush. Spray the toilet with cleaner or 1:1 vinegar/ water solution, and let the cleaner do its thing. Wipe clean and dry with a cleaning cloth, which you then either need to clean, or dispose of- don’t re-use this anywhere else! If you have boys in your household, sometimes assigning this task to them may improve their aim next time.
Glass in a bathroom may develop limescale build-up and soap scum, which is difficult to remove. Make a solution of baking soda and vinegar- it should be a creamy consistency. Apply to the glass in circular motions. Let sit for a while, and then scrub again. Wash/ squeegee off and you’ll have sparkling clean glass!
