Quick and easy ways to clean your bathroom
Category: House Cleaners
Given that it's where you wash to keep yourself clean, it stands to reason that you'll want the room itself to be as spic and span as possible for the benefit of personal hygiene.
With this in mind we've come up with a list of a few short pointers to help you get the job done quickly and with the minimum of fuss.
Bathtub and shower
Before cleaning any other part of the bathroom, spray the tub with a generous splash of bathroom cleaner and leave it to stand while you see to everything else.
When you come back to it, scrub away at the surface with abrasive scrubbing pads to remove any deposits and be sure to reach into the corners.
Finally, a simple rinse with the showerhead will get rid of the excess cleaning product and should leave your bathtub and shower gleaming.
Don't forget to give special treatment to glass shower doors, which can simply be sprayed with glass window cleaner and wiped down.
Toothpaste dribbles, chunks of soap and overspray from deodorants and hair products - the sink really sees it all and is arguably the most frequently used part of a typical bathroom.
Just as with the bathtub, an all-purpose bathroom cleaner should be sufficient to remove the bulk of any light soil and film.
Abrasive scrubs can be used for tougher deposits - and bleach-based cleaners can easily remove the worst toothpaste dribbles.
Germs linger in the toilet bowl long after flushing - and this can become a hotbed of harmful bacteria, so cleaning the toilet regularly is essential.
It is important to take your time with liquid toilet bowl cleaner - squirt it round the rim and give it some standing time to dissolve germs.
Follow this by vigorously brushing and scrubbing with a pumice stone if necessary.
