Keeping Your Bathroom Clean

It may be hard to believe but the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in your house. Be it the family bathroom, en suite or cloakroom, the fact is that the act of keeping yourself clean makes your bathroom dirty!!

It is important to keep these spaces clean and hygenic so you can relax in a hot steamy bath without worrying about grime and nasty bugs.

First store anything that isn’t in regular use away in cupboards or drawers to prevent them attracting dirt.

If you don’t like to use strong chemical cleaners, try wiping your surfaces over with a solution of white vinegar and water, it cuts through soap scum and grease, is anti bacterial, bio degradable, and the vinegar smell soon vanishes.

If you prefer to take the greener approach add a pinch of bicarbonate of soda to the mix, the resulting solution is a great all round cleaner, use an old toothbrush dipped in the solution to remove grime from around taps and other hard to reach places. For light cleaning a simple mix of water with soap or washing up liquid will do the job.

Eucalyptus oil, lemon juice, and tea tree oil are all good cleaners and natural disinfectants, they also leave the room smelling wonderful

If you have wood furniture in the bathroom, a quick wipe with olive oil or sunflower oil will not only lift the dirt but will leave the wood with an attractive sheen while baby oil does a great job on stainless steel.

Strangely enough, a bottle of Cola poured into a stained loo and left to soak will produce a sparkling stain free finish.

Start from the top and work down, clean the walls ( tiles can be cleaned with a mixture of either water or vinegar and bicarbonate of soda then a quick polish with a soft cloth will leave them sparkling) and any ceiling cladding first, move onto any furniture, glass (shower enclosure), and ceramics not forgetting the shower taps and light pulls, these are the most touched items in the bathroom and are major culprits in spreading germs. Finally clean the floor.

Follow this brief guide and you will have a clean, hygenic bathroom without spending lots of your hard earned cash on cleaning products
