How To Keep Your Bathroom Sparkling Clean With Common Household Items

Aug 17, 2007
Of all the rooms in a house to clean, most people will save the bathroom for last. However, the bathroom is one of the most frequented rooms in every household. A well used bathroom should be cleaned on a weekly basis. You can keep your bathroom sparkling clean without buying expensive cleaning products. Most of the products you will need are probably already in your bathroom or kitchen.

The easiest and most easily seen items to clean in the bathroom are the countertop and sink. A simple wipe down with a baby wipe and a dry cloth is a quick and easy way to clean off your countertop. If you prefer to do a more intensive cleaning, sprinkle baking soda over your countertop and sink and scrub clean with a damp sponge. A toothbrush works great for those hard to reach places around the faucet and fixtures or soak a cotton ball in bleach and let it sit by the fixtures for a few hours and rinse with warm water. The tub and shower area, including shower curtains, can be scrubbed clean with baking soda, as well.

The faucet and fixtures can be kept shining by rubbing them down with a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will evaporated and eliminate the need for you to dry it off. Also, help your fixtures stay spot free by rubbing them with a piece of wax paper when you finish.

If you have a weekly routine for cleaning your bathroom, you can plan ahead. The night before you clean, dump 2 cups white vinegar into the toilet bowl after the last use for the night. Using a toilet brush before flushing in the morning will help remove any tough stains. This will help eliminate water rings and keep your toilet bowl from getting unfriendly odors. You can clean the outside of the toilet with baking soda and warm water. Use a toothbrush for hard to reach areas or stubborn stains.

Tile floors can be very difficult to keep clean in your bathroom due to the huge amount of traffic on them. Mix 1/2 cup baking soda in with your mop bucket filled with warm water. Sometimes, the grout between the tiles is more resistant to cleaning. This can be overcome by dipping a toothbrush in undiluted white vinegar and scrubbing the grout. If a toothbrush is not your style, try mixing together equal parts of Epsom salt and liquid dish detergent and scrub with a damp sponge or sponge mop.
