Top Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Shiny as New

Posted on February 18th, 2016 by Poppy Gill

 

We amaze ourselves on how much of a mess we can create without even trying. Ironically, the place in our home that we spend the most time cleaning up ourselves is also one of the places that require quite a bit of clean up so it is habitable. But to do a proper deep clean can take up quite a bit of time. This is why we have some tips that will help you clean up your bathroom more efficiently.

Firstly, every bathroom whether you have Italian marble or ceramic tile, will have scum. The byproduct of using products such as soap, shampoo and body wash, scum is that disgusting lining that appears on your walls and around your tub. Its appearance is unavoidable but yet disgusting which means it has to go. When it comes deep cleaning a bathroom the use of tools such as drain unblockers in Hamilton, brushes and squeegees are all part of the job. However, there is a quick fix for those in a rush, a dyer sheet and some water. Sprinkle a bit of water on a used dyer sheet and run it through all the surfaces that have scum on it. It may not be effective as a proper scrub down but it works if you are in a pinch and need a quick fix.

Another trouble area in the bathroom is backed up pipes. Now you can use devices such as drain unblockers but there are some other, quicker ways to do the job. A mixture of 1/3 cup of baking soda and vinegar will provide a less troublesome way of cleaning pipes. When the two substances are mixed together it will fizz, so without wasting anytime, pour the solution down the pipe and let it stew. The longer you keep it, the better it works so after an overnight soak, pour some boiling water down the same way. The mixture will have cleaned up any grimes and dirt that was obstructing the pipeline and the water will help washout any remaining substance.

Any bathroom will have to deal with mildew and this creates more problems but there is a tip on how to prevent it rather than get rid of it. Mildew is usually the result of leftover water particles that do not dry up. The next time you have a shower remember to turn the exhaust fan on, crack open a window or leave the door open a bit to allow for the steam to escape the room rather than settle in it. You have to do so for up to 20 minutes after you have used the shower or there will some water remaining. Keeping a clean bathroom is one of the most important factors of good hygiene. Thus the more ways you know to keep it clean, the easier it will be.
