Cleaning the bathroom and toilet is a time-consuming chore that requires some patience. Here are ten simple methods for sprucing up your washroom:
- Leave the restroom.
Take everything out of the bathroom so you can thoroughly clean it without relocating anything. Toss all used linens (including carpets) in the washing machine and put away any little objects in a box located outside the bathroom.
- Sweep and dust
The dust has to be swept up, so grab the duster and go to town. Choose one with a long handle if you need to get to far-off switches, vents, or lamps. When you’re done dusting the surfaces, sweep (or vacuum) the bathroom floor to get rid of any remaining dust, debris, or hair.
- Tidy it up.
Use bathroom cleanser on various surfaces. If you do your cleaning regularly, you can get away with using an all-purpose cleaner, but if you need to get rid of build-up on your tiles, you should use an acid-based cleaner
Spread some cleaning on your sponge or rag, and then wipe off the shower’s track, shelves, towel racks, baseboards, blinds, and doors. The most productive approach is to divide the area into pieces and work from left to right, starting at the top.
- Cleaning the Floor
Mix the cleaner’s suggested amount with a pail of warm water, as directed on the packaging.
- Scrub it out
Remove any residue or lose debris by scrubbing the area. The cleaner has already done the bulk of the work, simplifying your life. When you start rinsing, make sure you’ve gone over every surface.
- Complete the bathroom shower.
Reinstall everything you took out of the tub or shower and wipe it down as you go. If your shower has a glass door, spray it with glass cleaner and wipe it off before you close it.
- Go to Work on the Vanity
You may use an all-purpose cleaner to disinfect your counters, sink, and fixtures by spraying it on and wiping it off with a dry cloth. Cleaning the soap dish or sink with a rough sponge may help release any grime that has built up. It’s time to clean that mirror with some glass cleaner.
- Clean the Bathroom
Use a toilet cleaner and a toilet brush to remove accumulated grime. Wipe off the outside after spraying it down with an all-purpose cleaner.
- Mopping the floor
Squeeze off any extra liquid from your mop after dipping it into your cleaning solution, and then work on the bathroom floor. Let air dry. Mats and rugs washed in a washing machine should be returned to their designated spots once they have dried.
Removing mold and mildew from the bathroom
- It is vital since they can lead to health issues if left unchecked. Chlorine bleach is often used as a decontamination procedure for these chemicals. Rather than using harmful bleach, you may use a mixture of 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and one full cup of water in a spray bottle to prevent mold and mildew growth.
- Remove soap scum, water stains, lime, and other mineral deposits.
This simple recipe is for a mild all-purpose cleaner used on various surfaces, from tile and porcelain to metal fixtures and drain covers.
- Directions: Fill a quart container or cleaning tub with water, then add four teaspoons of baking soda.
- Increase it to a 1-to-1 ratio for additional punch, and if you prefer, add a squeeze of lemon juice for the smell; just be sure to get rid of the seeds and pulp before you do so.
- Cleaning surfaces, including countertops, bathtubs, floors, and even children’s toys, is a breeze with this recipe, which also has a deodorizing effect and gently scrubs away grime, stains, and debris.
