5 Tips For Cleaning The Bathroom


Tackle The Toilet First

You'll want to tackle the toilet bowl first. Take some bleach and pour it around the entire bowl, then leave it to soak for a few minutes. After this, take a toilet brush and start scrubbing the entire bowl including the rim (unless you're lucky enough to own a rimless toilet).

Double Up On Gloves

The most dreaded job: cleaning the toilet! When cleaning your toilet we'd recommend having a second pair of gloves and sponges. It's also a good idea to have them in a different colour so you can remember.

 

Use White Vinegar For Limescale

If there's lots of limescale in your toilet bowl, you can use white vinegar again. Pour the vinegar around the entire bowl and leave it to soak for 3-4 hours. Once it's had time to soak you can start scrubbing and the limescale should start to disappear. If this doesn't do the trick you can add more vinegar or even leave the vinegar to sit overnight. Once you're finished, simply flush the toilet and you should have a sparkly clean bowl. 

 

If you want to remove limescale from a shower head or tap spout, you'll need to use a slightly different method. Fill a plastic bag (sandwich bags work particularly well) with white vinegar and place it over the shower head or tap spout. Secure it with elastic bands and allow it to work overnight. In the morning give your shower head or spout a rinse with water and it should be sparkly clean.

 

Get Your Toothbrush Out

If a lot of grime has accumulated in the grout between your bathroom tiles, you may need some more focused cleaning. 

For this use a purpose made shower and grout cleaner and an old toothbrush or other soft bristled brush. Spray the cleaner onto the grout and leave it for up to ten minutes to soak in. You can then use your soft brush to scrub the grout and remove the grime. Remember to start at the top of the tiled section and work your way down.  

 

Mop The Floor

Once you've cleaned everything else the last job is to mop the floor. Before mopping, it's a good idea to vacuum or sweep the floor to remove any excess dirt.

 

There will be lots of different cleaner types on offer and you can often find one to suit your specific floor type. Mix the detergent and hot water in one bucket and then fill up a separate bucket with just hot water.

 

Dip the mop into the bucket then wring it out. Remember if the mop is too wet it won't clean any better but the floor will take twice as long to dry out. Start mopping the floor at the furthest point from the door then work back towards it. Use the second bucket to rinse the mop. This is something people will often forget to do but it ensures you aren't simply adding dirty water back into the bucket with cleaning solution.
