6 Easy Tips to Keep Your Bathroom Clean & Sparkling

Cleaning the bathroom is a task that most of us dread. Couples tend to fight over it, and roomies take the turn to do this tedious task. However strenuous it might be, it is imperative to keep your bathroom clean for the hygiene of the entire household.

Most of the bathroom are heavily used and are wet throughout the day. Water leaves stains on showers, sinks, toilets and over time if it is kept uncleansed, rust can form. It not only gives a shady look to the bathroom but also becomes the cause of germs. These germs can spread into your house and cause deadly diseases.

There are various bathroom cleaners available on the market, but nothing works better than homemade products. These solutions are easy to apply and come at a much lower cost.

Today I have brought some easy tips for you, to keep your bathroom super clean and ensure the well-being of the entire household.

1. Warm water and vinegar solution

Mix a half cup of vinegar in mildly warm water and use it to mop your floor. As the wet floor is prone to stains, once the wet cleaning is done, drain out the excess water to ensure that the floor does not attract any further germs. This is not good for removing heavy stains, but if it is used regularly, then it will ensure that no adamant marks are formed on the floor.

2. Baby oil

The sink is the toughest part to be kept clean. It is used rigorously and thus maintaining it becomes a challenge. However, it no more would be. If you have a baby in the house, use some of his oil. First, take a dab of soap that you use for your utensils and mix it with little water to rub the sink. Then, pour some baby oil on a soft cloth and rub it over again. It will be sparkling clean. If you do not have a baby in the house, then buy a small baby oil pack and see the wonder it can do.

3. Remove Toilet Stains with Vinegar & Borax

Borax works as a great multi-purpose cleanser, and it can be effectually used to remove the stains caused by the residue of hard water. When accompanied by vinegar, the amazing stain remover, it gives the shiniest look to your bathroom. First, drizzle one-fourth cup of borax inside the toilet bowl and smudge it around with the help of a toilet brush. Then take a cup full of vinegar and sprinkle it all over the area you want to clean. Ensure that the toilet is remained untouched for about 20 minutes and the mixture gets time to settle down. Use the toilet brush to scrub the toilet bowl. No need of applying any pressure as a smooth movement of the hand all around the toilet will do the miracle. Flush the toilet and see the miracle.

4. Use Sandpaper

You can use sandpaper to deal with the stubborn stains on your sink, toilet bowl or bathtub. This requires some efforts, but it is one of the most economical means of removing the foul yellowish stains. Scrub the stain with dry or wet sandpaper and then rub it with a clean cloth.

5. Baking soda

It can be used to clean your bathtub, tiles, and toilet bowls. Mix baking soda with little water to form a paste. You can also use lukewarm water to make this paste. Gently rub the area you want to clean with the mixture. Don't put too much of force as it is unnecessary. Clean the area thoroughly and dry it with a clean cloth. For cleaning the floor, you can sprinkle the baking soda on it and let it stay for a few minutes before scrubbing it off. Once done with the scrubbing, wash it off with water and use the mope to drain out the excess water from the floor.

6. Flour

Nothing can be simpler than cleaning the taps in your bathroom. Use flour from your kitchen and see the magical effect of it on your bathroom. Make a paste with an equal portion of flour, salt, and lemon juice. You can also replace lemon juice with vinegar. Apply it on all the taps in your bathroom and let it stay overnight; if not then at least for half an hour. Use a clean cloth to rub the surface, and you will be surprised to see the effect of this simple technique.

Cleaning your bathroom will become a less tedious task if you do it regularly and if all the members of the family maintain some basic hygiene habits like mopping the floor after every use. Keep a clean cloth near your sink so that you can rub it on the sink before going to bed every night. Try to keep your bathroom dry, and you will find a decreasing number of stains on it. If you can maintain proper ventilation of your bathroom by keeping the windows and door open, it will dry up faster without much effort on your part. Happy cleaning!
