Bathroom Cleaning Basics

If you've not had much experience cleaning a bathroom before, it can be quite an overwhelming task. You just want to get it done as quickly and easily as you can, but instead you have to try and work out what you are doing, how to do it, what products to use, what will damage certain surfaces, and so on! How annoying!!

Well this article will outline the bathroom cleaning basics, so you can get up and cleaning, and done as soon as possible.

Bathroom Cleaning Basics
First, the key fact of bathroom cleaning is this: cleaning more often for a short amount of time is better than letting it get really dirty over a long period of time, and then having to spend hours scrubbing and disinfecting. It's best to give your bathroom a quick cleanse once a week.

There are a couple of different surfaces that will need cleaning in different ways in the bathroom. The most common material in a bathroom is tile, so lets start there.

How To Clean Bathroom Tiles
The safest and easiest way to clean bathroom tiles is to use detergent mixed with warm water, or a commercial multi-purpose or shower cleaner. Use a soft cloth and give all the tiled surfaces a scrub. You'll feel that dirty tiles are slightly harder to run the cloth over, and as you get rid of soap scum and muck, it will become very slippery.

To finish cleaning your tiles, give the whole surface a rinse with fresh water.

How To Clean Bathroom Grout
Next in our bathroom cleaning basics crash course is cleansing grout.

Grout is the cement in the gaps between your tiles. It needs scrubbing at the same time as you clean your tiles to stop mold, mildew and soap building up and staining it.

An easy way to clean grout is to scrub it with a toothbrush or a specialized grout brush. All you need to do is use the same product you use to clean your tiles, and use a little elbow grease on the grout lines. Give the areas that look clean a quick scrub, and give any stained areas some more work.

How To Clean The Toilet
One of the other essential areas that needs attention is the toilet.

The toilet is reasonably quick and easy to clean. Use a commercial toilet cleaner on the inside of the bowl, as well as on the other surfaces. Scrub the inside of the bowl with a toilet brush, wipe the outside over with a cloth containing some of the product. Finally, give the outside surfaces a wipe over with a fresh cloth to get rid of residue. Easy!
