Step-by-Step Guide to Sanitizing and Cleaning your Bathroom
We all know we should do it. Heck we NEED to do it. You probably do it every month. But do you know HOW to really clean and sanitize your bathroom?
Want to keep a healthy, happy, hygienic home? Start cleaning and sanitizing that bathroom of yours with these simple steps below.
Question: Why do we need to clean, sanitize the shower-head if water always flows through it?
Answer: Shower areas can harbor such bacteria and germs that can cause pulmonary diseases. Water that is stocked overnight inside the shower-head, can be a home for such bacteria and germs.
- Place your shower-head in a large zip-loc bag and fill it with white vinegar.
- Let it soak overnight.
- In the morning, submerge the shower-head in fresh water to rinse.
- If you have plastic curtains just spin it with your load of old cloths and towels in a washing machine; the rags and old cloths will act as brushes that cleans your curtains while spinning.
- Hang the plastic curtain to dry.
- You can use this affordable solution: distilled white vinegar plus baking soda, mix them up to form a paste then apply it directly to the shower door and let it sit for over an hour.
- Remove the solution using a microfiber cloth.
- Rinse well then buff dry with a clean cloth.
- Run the hot water for a few minutes, then drain it, and apply some of your regular bathroom cleaner for about 10-15 minutes before scrubbing, then rinse well.
Bathroom Tiles, Ceiling, and Walls:
- First spray the tiles, walls, countertops, and ceiling with your best all-purpose cleaner and leave it there for 3 minutes, then turn on the shower by cranking hot water to build steams up for about 5 minutes or so.
- Turn off the flowing water and shut the door tight. Let the all-purpose cleaner and the steam mix for about 20 to 30 minutes.
- Then wipe up all of the surfaces with a clean and fresh cloth.
- Mop the floor.
- First pour in a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl, and let it sit there for about 5 to 10 minutes. Brush it thoroughly using rubber gloves.
- Continue to brush the toilet bowl parts with an all-purpose cleaner, and rinse well to perfection.
Toilet Bowl Scrubber Brush:
- You might also want to clean the toilet brush that you are using, before and after cleaning. You can simply do this by placing the toilet scrubber over the toilet bowl, and pouring bleach into the bristles and leave it soaking for about 3-5 minutes.
- Then give it a quick rinse with water.
- After that, fill in the brush canister with a warm, soapy water, and let it sit there for a few minutes then dump the dirty water into the bowl.
Happy cleaning! 🙂
