The bathroom is often the most used room inside your home and because of this the toughest to clean up and always keep clean. By incorporating a number of time saving bathroom cleaning hints into your cleaning process, you can reduce your cleaning time, save money on cleaning products and enjoy a cleaner bathroom for extended time periods.
When cleaning the bathroom, always begin with the mirrors and shower doors. By cleaning up from top to bottom you will save steps. The dust from the mirrors and wall can occasionally drop to the floor. If done first, the dirt may then be cleaned out in one step any time you sweep and mop the floors.
To clean the mirrors and shower doors, you do not need an expensive commercial cleaner. The ideal cleaner and one that doesn’t leave streaks, is a simple solution of water, white vinegar and rubbing alcohol. Simply add water, 1/3 cup of vinegar and 1&1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol to a bottle of spray and shake gently to mix. Apply on glass surfaces and wipe with a clean white paper towel.
To clean grime and soap scum from the bathtub and shower stall you will need to use a two step process. 1st scrub the area with a white bristle brush to remove any grime and score the area to ensure that a cleaner can penetrate it more readily. After that, spray or wipe on a concentrated orange-based commercial cleaning product. Allow the product to set for thirty minutes and the grime and soap scum should rinse quickly.
After cleaning the tub and shower screen, coat the surfaces with an expensive car wax. If you do this twice yearly it will help to repel dirt and minimize cleaning time in half.
Another great time conserving bathroom cleaning hint for your shower stall is to wipe away all of the water after each use. This will prevent the dirt and grime from accumulating and make weekly cleaning a breeze.
After you have cleaned the main surfaces, it is time to clean the toilet and clean down the counter tops, sinks and taps. White vinegar is surely an low-cost and effective solution for these jobs. Apply the white vinegar with a cloth and allow it to set for a couple minutes. After that rinse the solution and wipe down the surfaces.
Other relatively easy bathroom cleaning tips include the use of a shower rug outside of the shower to collect water and dirt, the cleaning of your plastic shower curtain by throwing it in the washer together with your dirty cleaning rags and the use of tooth paste and a scrub brush to shine and clean your ornate metal taps.
