A Mini Guide to Creating a Squeaky Clean Bathroom

by - Sunday, June 09, 2019

A bathroom should serve as a luxurious sanctuary within the home. It’s a private space that allows you to wash the stresses and strains of the day away in a relaxing bath or shower.

Yet, you can feel anything but relaxed if the space appears worn, unkempt and dirty. If you want to unwind in style and luxury, read this mini guide to creating a squeaky clean bathroom.

Remove the Buildup of Soap Residue

It’s easy to leave soap residue behind in your shower, bathtub or sink. Rather than allowing the stains to set in, add one-part dish soap and one-part white wine vinegar into a spray bottle before spritzing the unwanted residue. Leave the mixture for at least one hour before wiping away the marking and rinsing your shower, sink or tub clean.

Eliminate Hard Water Stains

Hard water cannot only appear cloudy and grey as it runs from a faucet, but it can also lead to the development of iron and manganese stains on your sink, toilet, bathtub and fixtures, which can be unsightly.

If so, you should invest in water softener Austin services to effectively soften the water, which can prevent the development of future stains. You also can remove existing damage by applying a mixture of baking soda and vinegar or lemon juice and straight vinegar.

Freshen Up Your Shower Curtains

Shower curtains can be a haven for mold, mildew and dirt, which can spiral out of control if you allow it to. Eradicate bacteria from your bathroom by spraying a curtain with a bleach mixture once per week. Plus, some shower curtains are machine washable.

Remove Unpleasant Smells

Despite thoroughly cleaning your bathroom, you might struggle to eliminate unpleasant smells, such as damp or must. Thankfully, you can remove the sour aromas by:

Regularly using an air freshener
Adding a scented oil diffuser onto a shelf
Leaving a glass or vase of white wine vinegar and a couple of teaspoons of baking soda in the room
Cleaning overflow and water spills as soon as they happen to prevent mold

Install a Ventilation Fan

If you don’t have a ventilation fan in your bathroom, consider installing one. Turn it on when in the shower or bath to quickly free your bathroom of condensation and turn it off once you leave. It will prevent the likelihood of mold and your bathroom will smell fresh and clean.

Deep Clean Your Toilet

If you are battling limescale and mineral deposits in your toilet bowl, you should pour in a cup of baking soda and allow it to sit for a few minutes before brushing at the surface and flushing your toilet.

Spruce Up Discolored Grout

Discolored grout isn’t only unpleasant to look at, but it could also be a haven for bacterial growth. To spruce up tired grout, dip a grout brush into undiluted bleach and scrub away at any and all discolored areas. You should then rinse away the bleach and ventilate your bathroom.
