Maybe it's just me, but I always believe that the bathroom has the most sinister, nastiest and dangerous germs lurking in every corner. Incidentally, cleaning the bathroom, is my least favourite household chore (can you tell?) and so I've devised clever, efficient ways to clean it without compromising on cleanliness. Today, I'd like to share these tips with you. Read on if you're interested...
surface cleaner (I use Dettol), then hop in a few minutes later to scrub it before I clean myself. It is quick and effective and I don't have to worry about getting my clothes wet. If pressed for time, I pick one wall/area per day, and move on to the area the next day.
Turn fan on and/or keep windows open - Steam = damp bathroom = perfect breeding ground for bacterial mould. Leaving the windows or door open will allow the steam to dissipate out of the bathroom, similarly, the exhaust fan on during a shower (and keep it running for about 15 minutes after) will help reduce moisture levels.
Wipe down condensation - A daily wipe down of damp walls and surfaces, including the taps and other fixtures in the bathroom will help prevent mould growth as well as remove soap scum and mineral buildup. I find using old towels to be most effective.
Close toilet lid when flushing - Everytime we flush with an open lid, bacteria gets sprayed into the air and could land anywhere in the bathroom from surfaces, towels and even our toothbrushes (Lovely.) So this is a no brainer; it's become second nature to close the lid after every use. Keeping it closed to keep prying little hands away from the toilet too.
Clean toilet brush - The toilet brush takes cares of the dirtiest mess in the bathroom, so it is important that it stays clean itself too. I usually give the brush a rinse under very hot water after each use and them let it drip dry before storing it in the holder.
Do you have any bathroom cleaning tips to share too?
