Of Baths and Bathrooms

Aug 17, 2007
Everybody loves a good bath. More than that, everybody loves a clean and gleaming bathroom. Here's the lowdown on the best products and practices to taking baths and taking care of your bathroom.

In taking the best baths, here are some of the products that should be in your bathroom.

Moisturizing soap/body wash

A good soap or cream applied to the skin can counter dryness. Exposure to everyday weather can strip off your skin of its natural oils so it is essential that you have a good moisturizing soap or body wash when you take a bath.

Aromatherapy oils

Lavender is one of the best aromatherapy oils to include in your bath. It is used for treating wounds, enhancing memory and aiding sleep by combating anxiety and insomnia. Other popular scents include eucalyptus, rose, jasmine and bergamot.Aromatherapy oils are relaxing. They lower stress.

Body buff

This is used to slough off dead skin cells. This will in part reveal, new, clean and smooth skin. When taking baths, our bodies are soaked in water, which makes the exfoliating process so much more easier.


Whether you take your bath at the start of your day or when you end it, it is absolutely refreshing to light a few candles when you soak up. The soft illumination and fresh scent of your candle will give you good vibes all day or all night.

Now that you know how to take a really good bath, here are tips on keeping your bathroom in tip-top shape.

1. You'll be needing the following bathroom-cleansers. Strong, liquid cleanser that's bacteria fighting as well. Spray cleansers that's antiseptic. Glass cleaners and tile cleaners, too. Plus some mops, sponges and an old toothbrush if you must. Whoever said that cleaning your bathroom is a piece of cake.

2. Spray shower and tub with strong cleanser. The labels on your bath cleaning products will say what kind of stuff is in it- so make sure you get the ones with really strong bacteria-fighting stuff.

3. Pour cleaner into the toilet bowl, and spray the outside with the same cleaner. Let the chemicals do the cleaning for a while and return to scrubbing it after you do the other stuff.

4. Clean mirrors, chrome, bathroom scale, and light fixtures with glass cleaner. Never interchange cleaners. There's a big difference with cleansers and mirror cleaners. So take note!

5. Vacuum everything! This will remove dust and hair that is so hard to get up when surfaces are wet.

6. Empty and clean the wastepaper basket. Dispose of all the filth and make sure you have a fresh new plastic to replace it with. Remember to spray your wastepaper basket with a good old cleanser.

7. Clean the sink. Working from the top of the toilet down, clean the outside, and brush and flush the inside.

8. Scrub the floor with a strong cleanser. Tough tile floors can be most easily cleaned by hand with the scrub-brush side of a bathroom-only sponge.One more tip: spaghetti mops are more efficient at getting into tough corners than sponge mops. Many types can even be thrown in the washing machine between cleanings.

With these tips, you are on your way to the best bath experience. Because taking a bath is more than just taking a bath!
