An Extensive Guide to Cleaning a Bathroom

An Extensive Guide to Cleaning a Bathroom

By Clifford Woods

A restroom without stains and odor is wonderful for health and it also makes a statement of your clean living lifestyle. Cleaning the bathroom can be a tiresome job for everyone as it can take a long time and a lot of effort. It is said that people would rather clean the bedroom, guest room, and other rooms as opposed to bathroom. Unfortunately, it is not a place we can skip.

The soap deposits and spots covering the sinks, faucets, and floors can make the restroom slippery and smell gross. To eliminate them, a number of cleaning solutions may be used. Since we spend time every day in the bathroom freshening ourselves up and taking care of our daily needs, we have to keep it thoroughly clean and fresh. Below are a few very helpful bathrooms cleaning guidelines that a person can make use of with ease.

Stains around the inside of toilet bowls are a typical dilemma and they are usually the result of an alkaline build up. One or two cups of white vinegar, at least once in a month, can do away with this matter. Stop the water supply to the toilet and dry the inside of the toilet bowl. Wet a couple of high quality paper towels with an orange citrus solution or white vinegar. 

Cover the whole of the inside of the toilet with it. Leave the towels moist for many hours or even over night until the stains break down. Then use a brush or toilet bowl scrubber to clean. If the white vinegar is not good enough then make use of a pumice stone and an old toothbrush to scrub the buildup away.

Spread one cup of baking soda all over your sink along with a cup of salt and white vinegar. Let it stay for an hour or so and then cleanse it with hot water. The mixture of hot water with salts will unblock the pipes and eliminate the majority of ant accumulation in those. You can do the same for the kitchen sink, shower drain, and bathtub drain.

Bathtubs and Showers 
Stains on the shower surfaces and doors or curtain show up because of the alkaline build up in the water that hit these areas. Using car wax will help in getting rid of these spots. Avoid using it on the floor as it will become slippery. Twice annually will probably be enough to keep stains away.

The soap deposits have been an old problem in the restroom. The main reason for it is the talcum powder present in most bar soaps. Using liquid soaps or organic soaps can easily fix this problem. Aside from prevention, you still need to clean your shower on a weekly basis. Use an orange citrus-based solution once each week to wash the baths and showers. Just apply it and wait for a couple of minutes to allow the dirt to break down. No reason to scrub harshly. Even if the soap deposits remains, the orange citrus-based solution will help.

As soon as the accumulation is dissolved, make use of a bristle pad to clean it off. Normal brushes are too rough and might scrape the surface. Dampen the pad and softly rub the area. Doing out this process will eliminate any of the dissolved accumulation and deposits from the surfaces and glass doors if you have them.

Soap scum often builds ups around sink faucets which can be annoying whenever we use them. To eliminate this build up, put a paper towel soaked with white vinegar around the faucet. Plug the drain and dump half a cup of vinegar into the sink as well. Wait a while as it does take time to break down the buildup. Scrub away using an old toothbrush.
