Bathroom Cleaning Made Easy

When it comes to a house that needs a really thorough spring cleaning, it is usually the rooms in which things are ‘done’ like cooking or cleaning, rather than rooms of relaxation that need the most attention. This tends to be due to the materials involved in these processes, like hot food or lots of water. The bathroom can be a particularly hard spot to get looking really clean, especially if you are not one who cleans the place very often. The build up of soap scum, hard water marks, residue and limescale can be really tough to get shifted, but if you can, a sparkling bathroom is well within your reach, and you will enjoy using it a lot more than you perhaps would have. Something about the nature of the bathroom, in that you wash yourself in there, means that you should likely have it extremely clean at all times, but it never seems to happen. Making cleaning the bathroom and the rest of the house a regular thing means that you will rarely have as much trouble as the first time ever again, so get on it!

When cleaning a bathroom, make sure that you have the right products for the job. You will need some bleach for the toilet, as well as anti mould solution cleaner, one that preferably works on soap scum and limescale. Check that none of the surfaces in the bathroom are delicate, and that your cleaning products will be suited to the materials involved. Otherwise you may well have a pretty expensive mishap on your hands! Have cloths on hand and rough sponges for scrubbing, but also an extra rag for the toilet in order to prevent the spreading of harmful bacteria.

Run bleach down the underside of the lip of the toilet bowl all the way around, and place the toilet brush in the centre hole  so that it reaps the benefits of the bleach and is cleaned and sanitized somewhat. Leave this bleach in place to do its work until it is next flushed.

Apply the scum remover to the bath and allow it to sit, do the same to the sink and the taps on both the sink and the bath, as well as the shower head. Be certain that the cleaner that you use will not react badly with any metal work or porcelain. As you finish applying the spray to the various areas of metalwork, you can return to the ones that you did first, as they should have had enough time to get to work. If you have not left it more than two minutes of so since applying the spray, wait until you think it has been that long. Use a stiff brush or rough sponge to get rid of the built up residue that has accumulated around where the water leaves marks. In hard water areas the lime will be worse and you will have quite a job on your hands. Soap scum in the bath is similar. Apply the same technique to all fittings and basins until you are happy with their shine. Apply disinfectant to the surfaces around basins, and clean them down thoroughly. Use the same technique for the toile, but use a separate rag that you then throw away.

When you have done all of this, mop the floor last of all to prevent getting the floor messy as you clean other parts of the room! And voila, you are done and dusted!
