Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Bathroom cleaning tips

When it comes to cleaning the two grungiest places in your bathroom, you may need some help on how to accomplish these nasty tasks.

Though Canberra bathrooms can get just as filthy as any other bathroom on the planet, we've taken the time to sit down and give you a few tips on some methods to make your bathroom cleaning adventures just a bit easier.

Showers

The best way to clean out that shower head is to pour vinegar into a plastic bag and fully submerge your shower head into it. Tie it in place and leave it overnight to soak. In the morning, you can remove the shower head and simply run your water through it to rinse it out.

Your shower curtains can get a great scrub too. All that you need to do is toss them into the washing machine with a few old towels to use as scrubbers. Add your usual laundry detergent to the mix and wash on hot. The towels will help to scrub off the soap scum and mildew from the curtains. Simply hang them back up to dry.

If you're facing the daunting task of cleaning shower doors, try making a paste of one cup of baking soda and a little white vinegar. You want to make sure that the consistency is thick and will cling to your shower doors. Let it sit for an hour and then rub with a microfiber cloth. Buff dry with a clean cloth after rinsing.

Toilets

You can start by adding a cup of baking soda to your toilet bowl. Use your toilet scrubber to clean the bowl. If you've flushed and still see spots it may interest you to know that they make a pumice brush that you can use on your toilet bowl that can get rid of limescale without harming your bowl.

Don't forget to clean that toilet brush when you're done! Pouring bleach over the brush and letting it sit for a few minutes will keep your toilet brush from serious bacteria buildup. Once it's sat for a few minutes, rinse with clear water. Don't forget to use hot soapy water or bleach water to clean out the brush canister too!
