The bathroom is one of the parts of the house that should always be shiny. And there is no worse image than that of a dirty toilet, a bathtub with soap remnants, or some stained tiles.
The cleanliness of the bathroom should be thoroughly, so it is usually a nuisance. To make this task easier, the Bathroom Cleaning Checklist takes note of the advice we give you below.
Bathroom Cleaning Checklist
1. Cleaning the bathtub, shower, and washbasin
We all like to take a pleasant shower or a relaxing dip in a bathtub with hot water, foam, and salts. The worst comes later when it’s time to clean.
Try mixing baking soda with vinegar or lemon juice and a little water. With a sponge or cloth, apply this mixture to the bathtub and the faucets.
You will quickly remove water and dirt level stains. You can also place paper napkins soaked in the mixture on the stains, let it act for a few minutes, and then remove them. When cleaning the sink, you can use this same technique.
Most forget to clean the curtains of the bath or shower. After washing we have to leave the curtain well extended.
Ensuring that there are no creases, it will be there where all the dirt will accumulate.
Although we take precautions, we must clean the curtain from time to time, passing a cloth soaked in brine and letting it act for a quarter of an hour, then rinse it.
If there are a lot of molds (and this is also applicable to the joints of the bathroom) it is best to bleach diluted in water. if there are normal stains, you can put the curtain in the washing machine.
You have to clean it every day. The first thing you should do is get rid of the hairs and the grit accumulated at the edges.
If you do not remove them, you can spoil the sink by cleaning it. Once this step is completed, and with the help of a cloth or sponge containing cleaner, rub the entire surface. Once done, remove the remains with plenty of water.
If mold or rust spots remain, use ammonia or bleach; If the spots are very embedded, use alcohol or turpentine. Leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse it. Once you have removed the dirt, run a cloth through the sink to give shine and a professional finish.
4. For the tiles
In the joints of the tiles is where more crap accumulates. To leave them as the jets of gold you have to take a brush and dip it in a solution of bleach with bicarbonate.
Then you have to brush, yes, patiently. For the tiles, we mix vinegar and water in equal parts and put them in a spray.
Spray on each tile, let it act for a few minutes and then pass a cloth, you will see how quickly the moisture stains and the fungi that accumulate disappear. This mixture can also be used to remove the scale that forms in the shower.
5. The mirrors
Forget about the usual glass cleaner. The best way to clean splashing stains on bathroom mirrors is a mixture of water, ammonia, and alcohol.
You have to put half of water, a quarter of ammonia and another quarter of alcohol.
If you want to avoid the smell of ammonia, another option is vinegar diluted in water. To avoid leaving fibers on the mirror surface you can use newspaper.
6. The toilet
Perhaps the most complicated and unpleasant area, since it is where more tartar accumulates. It is advisable to use a metal sponge and alcohol or hot vinegar.
For the spots that form at the bottom, try a cola drink. Pull the chain first and then dump half a can of cola, stir with a brush and wait half an hour. Pull the chain again and see how the stain disappears.
7. Floor and walls
First, sweep the floor, to remove hair or debris that has fallen. Once this step is completed, you have to impregnate a rag in hot water with soap and bleach.
Pass it both on the floor and the walls of the bathroom. Once you have removed the dirt, rinse the areas with clean water to remove the remains of the cleaner.
Take special care with the corners that line the cup and the shower or bathtub, and the baseboards and joints.
8. Have a suitable set of utensils on hand
To save as much time as possible in cleaning the bathroom you must always have the right utensils and producer at hand. The mixtures have them prepared in sprinklers and always use a brush to clean the toilet after use, so it will be easier to clean.
