Five Top Tips To Get Your Bathroom Super Sparkling Clean

Cleaning the bathroom is probably no one's favourite chore, but it’s important to keep it hygienic and free from stains and mould. Here are some top tips to keep your bathroom sparkling clean and fresh


Start with the toilet

By starting with the toilet, not only will you get the most unpleasant task out of the way first, but you can also leave the disinfectant to work while you get on with cleaning the rest of the bathroom. Don a pair of rubber gloves and apply bleach or cleaning fluid around the rim and leave it to run down the sides of the bowl.

Use a toilet brush to scrub around the bowl and leave it for at least 10 minutes before flushing. Next spray a bathroom cleaner around the seat and lid, both underneath and on the exterior surfaces. Wipe the toilet down with a clean cloth starting from the top. If there are any grimy areas around the hinges or rim, scrub them with an old toothbrush. 


Tackle the bath and shower

Select a cleaner that is compatible with the materials of your bath or shower. Not all bathroom cleaners are suitable for surfaces such as enamel or natural stone, so read the instructions carefully. If there are stubborn stains, spray the cleaner and leave it to work for 15 minutes before wiping it away with a clean cloth.

Remove any hairs that are choking the plughole and pour a cup of soda crystals or white vinegar and bicarbonate soda followed by very hot water down the drain. This will dissolve any build up soaps and conditioners and help to prevent odours. 

Wipe down the tiled areas and shower screen after applying a suitable cleaning agent, and dry them off with a soft microfibre cloth for that extra clean sparkle. If you do not have a bathroom cleaner in stock, a drop of washing up liquid and hot water works well.


Scrub grout with a toothbrush

Grime and mildew can build up on the grout between tiles, which looks unsightly and needs dealing with straight away to avoid it getting worse and becoming impossible to shift. The most effective way of doing this is by mixing a paste with equal parts of bicarbonate soda and scrubbing the grout with a toothbrush.

Alternatively, you can use bleach to whiten stubborn grout stains. Dilute it with cold water rather than hot for the best results. 


Dust down all surfaces

Before cleaning the floor, wipe the dust off all surfaces, including in between the radiator bars with a long handled brush. Sweep up the debris with a dustpan and brush.


Don’t forget the floor

Vacuum or sweep the floor and use a mop or antibacterial floor wipes to remove dirt and grime. Finally, empty the bin and freshen the inside with a spray of cleaner or a dew drops of essential oils. Every few weeks, give the inside of the bin a proper soak in hot soapy water to keep it fresh.
