Bathrooms should be one of the cleanest rooms in your home, but all too often they’re actually
the grimiest and can quickly become breeding grounds for germs and bacteria. Here are a few
simple tips for deep cleaning your bathroom, and remember, the more often you can clean it, the
easier it becomes each time:
Cleaning Shower Heads:
The best and simplest way to do this is to fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, pop the shower
head into it, tie it up securely, and leave it overnight. The next morning, simply rinse it clean.
For A Sparkling Shower Stall Door:
Make a paste by combining white vinegar with baking soda and smear it all over the shower stall
door. Leave it on for around an hour before rubbing it off with a microfiber cloth. Then, rinse it
off and give it a quick buff with a clean cloth.
Extra tip – after you’ve showered or bathed, wipe all surfaces down and ventilate the room as much as possible.
Keeping Your Grouting Clean:
With a bucket of neat bleach, dip a grout brush into it and scrub at any discolored areas before
rinsing it off thoroughly. Remember to try and ventilate the room while doing this.
Extra tip – to prevent moisture and grime from infiltrating, seal your grout every six months
Cleaning Bathroom Surfaces:
The best way of doing this is to spay an all-purpose cleaner over all surfaces, turn the shower
onto its hottest setting until steam begins to fill the room, then turn it off and leave the room,
being sure to shut the door behind you. After 20 minutes or so, wipe all the surfaces down.
Extra tip – apply a coat of car wax to ceramic tiles, once a year; this will minimize water marks
Tackling The Toilet Bowl:
Begin by pouring a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl, leave it for a few minutes, brush it
then flush it. If you still see stains or marks caused by mineral or lime deposits, use a damp
pumice stone to gently eliminate them.
Don’t forget to clean the toilet brush, too. Soak it in bleach for at least 15 minutes and then pour
water over it. For the brush canister, simply stand it in the already cleaned toilet and fill it with
hot, soapy water.
Extra tip – when flushing, always keep the lid down and use the vent fan to suck up bacteria before it has a chance to settle on any surfaces.
Extra, extra tip – just get someone else to deep clean your bathroom for you! You don’t necessarily need a professional cleaner to come in and clean your bathroom every day, but once a week or once every two weeks would certainly help keep it cleaner and more hygienic.
Bathroom cleaning can feel a lot like drudgery, but if you use a cleaning service to help you
tackle it when it requires a deeper clean, the in-between cleaning won’t be so much of a
