Your bathroom can get dirty fast! Dirty grout, soap scum, nasty mildew stains. Sometimes it’s hard to keep the room clean. But with some tips, you can make it easier!
The first step to clean your bathroom is to use vinegar. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant and works great on tile grout.
So, to use vinegar, you just need to spray it all over the surfaces in your bathroom and let it sit for a few minutes.
Then, wipe it all away with a damp cloth. If the smells of vinegar bother you, just mix it with water and some dish soap before you spray it.
2. Use bleach to remove stubborn mildew
If you have any mold or mildew stains in your bathroom, you can use bleach to get rid of them. Just mix some bleach with water and spray it on the affected area.
Wait a few minutes and then wipe it away.
Bleach contains harsh chemicals, so be sure to use caution and avoid getting it on your skin. Be careful not to mix bleach with other cleaners, as it can create dangerous fumes.
3. Getting rid of soap scum with baking soda
Once you have wiped away the dirt, it’s time to clean your shower. For this, you can use baking soda.
Just sprinkle it on the shower walls and floor and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, wipe it away with a damp cloth while the baking soda is still wet.
The baking soda will lift any mold, mildew, and soap scum from the surfaces. What makes baking soda an effective cleaner is that it’s a natural abrasive and contains enzymes that break down organic material.
4. Cleaning your drain with vinegar and baking soda
If your bathroom sink starts to get clogged, you can use baking soda and vinegar to clean it. Just pour some baking soda into the drain, then slowly pour vinegar on top of it until the mixture starts to fizz.
This will help break down any material clogging up your drain. After a few minutes, pour boiling water down the sink to clear out the baking soda and vinegar. Vinegar and baking soda together reacts to form a harmless gas that will help to open your drain.
5. Trying dryer sheets to remove soap scum
Dryer sheets can also be used to clean your bathroom. Just dampen the sheet and use it to scrub away any soap scum on your shower, sink, and tiles.
