No one likes to use a dirty bathroom, nor does anyone like to clean one. So tip number one is to not let your bathroom reach a state where it grosses you out. This means you need to use the rest of our squeaky clean bathroom cleaning tips regularly so that your ‘bathroom time’, is a happy time.
Tip One: Throw away any empty tubes or bottles sitting on the shelves and window sill. It’s common to find unused products lying around our bathroom for months, so get rid of those too. De-cluttering instantly makes your bathroom look cleaner.
Tip Two: Keep all your bathroom essentials aside, put your gloves on and you’re ready to start cleaning surfaces. An all-purpose bathroom cleaner works best for this and is also the most convenient option. Simply spray the surfaces, sink, faucets and other fixtures, and start scrubbing. Use a mildly abrasive scrub for wiping off hardened dirt and stains from the sink and granite surfaces.
Tip Three: For the floor, bathtub and shower space, spray the area with a good amount of all-purpose cleaner and allow it to stand for 10-15 minutes. The standing time does half the work for you by loosening up and dissolving the grime and dirt on surfaces and between tiles. For the tub and shower fixtures, you can use an abrasive scrubbing pad, while the tiles can be rid of all grout and grime by using a bathroom bristle brush. Pro tip: Use a daily house cleaning checklist to ensure your bathroom stays clean!
Tip Four: Pour a liquid toilet cleaning agent in and around the interior of the toilet bowl and wait for 10 minutes before you start cleaning. For best results, make sure the bristles of your toilet brush are not worn out or smashed. Remember, the longer you allow the cleaning liquid to stand, the less force you will need to use when cleaning.
Tip Five: Clean the rim, seat, lid and tank of the toilet using an all-purpose bathroom cleaning spray and abrasive scrub. Again, allow the cleaning agent to stand for a few minutes before you start scrubbing.
Do this on a regular basis and you’ll have a squeaky clean bathroom all the time! If you are lazy like I am you should consider hiring a cleaning service to save you time! Our friends have recommended giving Empire Maids NYC a try if you live around the area.
