Bathroom Cleaning & Maintenance Tips

Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Is your bathroom starting to look tired and well-used? It is possible to get it looking new and back to its shiniest again with some effort put into the cleaning and maintenance. Read on for our tips and advice on keeping your bathroom clean.

How to Remove Water Marks from Mirrors, Glass & Wall Tiles

Make up a mixture of white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, aiming for a toothpaste-like consistency. Use a damp cloth or sponge to spread the mixture over the surface. Leave this on for a few minutes, then rinse it off and buff it up to get the shine back.

To help prevent build-up of deposits again, use a plastic wiper or squeegee to remove water drops after every shower. You can also try adding a light layer of car wax to glass and polish until shiny. Do this every 6 months or so and deposits will not build up so quickly.

How to Remove Limescale from Chrome Taps

For a quick fix, apply either limescale remover, or a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and water using a soft toothbrush. Rinse off the solution and buff with a cloth to get your taps sparkling. Make sure you don’t use this on gold or brass taps though!

How to Unclog Your Shower Head

Remove your shower head from the hose and leave it to soak in white vinegar. Scrub the shower head using a soft toothbrush to remove dirt and debris and then flush water through it to clean it all out.

How to Clean Grout That’s Going Black

Mix up a solution of water and bleach in equal measures. Dip a toothbrush in the solution and go over all the grout with the brush to remove the dirt. Once finished, rinse it all off with water.

To help prevent grout from turning black in future, try using a grout whitening product that contains fungicide. This can be found in most DIY stores.

How to Remove Limescale from a Toilet Bowl

About once a month you should pour white vinegar or a can of old, flat cola into the toilet bowl and leave it overnight to soak. Flush the following morning for a clean and shiny toilet.

How to Clean Your Bath and Basin

Regularly go over your bath and sink using a soft cloth and warm, soapy water to ensure it stays clean. Using an E-cloth, buff them up afterwards to add an extra shine.

You should avoid using abrasive cleaners for this, as they can remove the glaze from ceramic sinks or baths, which will make them much harder to clean in future.

If you follow these basic tips for cleaning and maintaining your bathroom, there is no reason why your bathroom shouldn’t stay looking clean and shiny for many years to come.
