5 Steps to a cleaner bathroom
The thought of cleaning the bathroom can make you just about run screaming from the house, but it doesn't have to be that way. Put these tips into practice to prevent your bathroom from becoming an all-day cleaning chore and make it one of the most sparkling rooms in your home.
To keep your bathroom sparkling, you should clean it every day. We're not talking intense cleaning, just touchups. For instance, after you shower, use the towel you just dried off with to wipe down your sink, faucets and countertops, or grab a flushable bathroom wipe and give everything a quick once-over. An everyday sprucing up will keep things looking good and help prevent buildup.
Keep your supplies handy
Keep all your cleaners, wipes and sponges in a bucket under your sink or in a closet near your bathroom. This will make it easier to grab supplies you need when you tackle your daily cleanup or see that your bathroom is getting a little out of hand.
Give your shower a bath
Once you're done cleaning yourself up, do the same thing for your shower. Keep a squeegee handy or use your towel and wipe down all the excess water. This only takes a minute or two and will help prevent mildew from building up on shower walls. Pay close attention to your shower curtain because mildew builds up in the creases.
No more soap
Soap scum is a nasty fact of life for your bathroom, but it can be stopped! Just replace your bar soap (the source of soap scum) with shower gel -- it's that simple.
A sparkling reflection
The mirror is often the first thing your guests look at when entering your bathroom, so pay close attention to its cleanliness. Use a glass cleaner to make mirrors shine.
A little goes a long way
These are just a few ways you can keep your bathroom feeling refreshed for your family and your guests. By taking just a few minutes out of your day, you can prevent long hours of cleaning. Save yourself some time and stop grime before it starts!
