  • 4 Simple Tricks For Keeping A Clean Bathroom

    The best method to keep a clean bathroom is to do it routinely. Whether easy to clean stainless steel sinks or vitreous china, cleaning can still be a bit of a hassle. Cleaning the tub and shower walls in bathrooms may only be a once a week item while other areas may need more frequent attention, however, there are usually some tasks that seem harder than others to get sparkling clean and keep that way. If you’ve been wondering how to get rid of stubborn buildup, germs, and dirt, here are some expert tips for a clean bathroom that may help make cleanup a breeze.

    Tips For A Clean Bathroom

    1. Bathtub rings – A natural and effective way to remove that ring around the tub is to cut a grapefruit in half and pour a tablespoon of salt onto it. Then simply rub it around the ring and watch it disappear. Even the smallest details of a clean bathroom make a difference.

    2. Shower and bathtub tile surrounds – Save your back and knees by using a clean broom and cleanser, then rinse using a bucket or a shower wand. When dealing with deep dirt stains, empty the bathtub of water and fit a soft scrubbing brush onto your drill, saving yourself some elbow grease. Remove soap scum buildup on glass shower doors by rubbing a damp dryer sheet across them. Spritz diluted bleach from a spray bottle on grout lines and finish with a clean mop to remove watermarks. Don’t forget, from time to time, to throw the shower curtain, if you’re using one, into the washing machine with a little white vinegar and hang it wet to dry rather using the dryer. Remember to work smarter, not harder for your clean bathroom.

    3. Showerhead residue and germs – Simply place a plastic bag around the showerhead and fill with white vinegar. Wrap an elastic band around to secure it and leave it for an hour. Remove and rinse. Regular removal of bacteria is integral to a clean bathroom.

    4. Toilet brush – Put a little liquid disinfecting cleanser in the toilet brush holder to keep the brush ready for the next use.
    Bathrooms do seem to attract dirt and grime but keeping them clean is important if you don’t want germs spreading through your home or the embarrassment of having guests needing to use a dirty bathroom. Many people are unaware about how to clean a bathroom effectively, but with a few simple tricks, you can easily keep your clean bathroom germ free and fresh.

    Standard Center-set contains three separate holes within four inches made for two-handled faucets, which are plate-mounted.
