Helpful Bathroom Cleaning Tips

May 1, 2008
Windows and Mirrors The first thing people see when they enter the bathroom are the walls and the mirrors. It is important to keep them clean and aesthetically pleasing, so you must be sure to clean them properly.

The best thing to do is to scrape the walls and mirrors of every bit of dirt and grime. Fill a spray bottle with 1/3 cup of white vinegar and cup of rubbing alcohol; you can also add 1 tablespoon of automatic dishwashing detergent. Spray evenly and scrub along the walls and mirrors. The alcohol and dishwashing detergent should leave the surfaces clean and fresh.

Tubs and Shower Stalls No one wants to get into a dirty bath tub. How can a grimy, dirty bath tub get you clean? The best thing to do is to scrub your tub and shower stall to make it clean and inviting.

Tap water contains a chemical called alkaline, which leaves spots on shower walls and glass doors. As any housekeeper knows, this isn't good for your bathroom. Put some car wax on a sponge and use it to scrub where the grime tend to build up. Glass is a porous material and the wax is used to seal these pores so the alkaline doesn't get into them.

Toilets You can have a bathroom without a shower stall, a sink, a bath tub or even a window to circulate the air, but you can't have a bathroom without a toilet. The septic nature of the toilet leaves housekeepers wanting more effective ways to keep toilets spot-free from the alkaline in tap water.

To get rid of the stains, the best thing to do is to pour vinegar into the toilet at least once a month. Don't overdo it unless you want to end up with a ruined toilet. This should eliminate the problem and it keeps the toilet clean and fresh.

Sinks The sink is where most of the dirt, except what goes into the toilet, ends up getting washed down the drain. It goes without saying that, if anything, the sink requires regular cleaning. Like the shower walls and the toilet, alkaline in tap water tends to mess up the sink surface with spots and ring marks. The best cleaners use common items in the kitchen like vinegar and baking soda.

Pour baking soda and them some white vinegar down the drain. Wait for an hour and then follow this up with warm water. This ought to fizzle away most of the deposits in the sink. This also works for kitchen drains, showers and bath tubs.

Faucets The best thing to do with faucets is to get rid of the alkaline build up around them and in the drain areas. Soak a paper towel in white vinegar and wrap it around the faucet. Then plug the drain and pour half a cup of white vinegar into the sink, and wait. It takes time for the vinegar to dissolve the deposits but soon your sink will look good as new.
