Believe it or not, the bathroom is one of the most used parts of your home. All those trips to freshen up and do your business can quickly leave the space looking lackluster. Luckily, cleaning the bathroom is far easier than it seems, and your Orlando junk removal experts want to help. We’ve put together a simple guide to help you keep your bathroom sparkling.
Clean Tile Regularly
Tile adds personality and flair to the bathroom, but the grout can quickly collect soap scum, mildew, and even mold. Get rid of regular buildup by spraying the tile with an all-purpose cleaner. For an all-natural approach, use a mixture of vinegar and water. Next, run the shower on hot until the bathroom is steamy. Let it sit for 15 minutes, and then wipe down the tile with a clean cloth to blast through even the thickest soap scum.
Pay Attention to the Grout
For dirty or stained grout, use a stiff bristled brush and straight bleach. Make sure to wear gloves and eye protection while working with the bleach, and open a window or run the bathroom vent to keep air circulating. Scrub the grout thoroughly and rinse the wall with water afterwards. This will get rid of most mold, mildew, and discoloration with ease. If you’re worried about using bleach, spray hydrogen peroxide on the grout instead. Let it sit for five minutes and scrub the stains away!
Scrub the Entire Toilet
Most people know the importance of cleaning the toilet bowl regularly, but all too often, the rest of the toilet gets neglected. Clean the bowl with your preferred toilet bowl cleaner, or pour a cup of baking soda directly into the water and let it sit. After five minutes, scrub with a toilet brush to power through those mineral deposits. To clean the exterior, start from the top and work your way down. Use a clean rag or paper towel and an all-purpose cleaner. Take time to scrub the base, behind the toilet seat, and the toilet handle.
Check the Countertop
Hair, toothpaste, lotion, and makeup all manage to spread from the sink to the top of the countertop. Wipe the surface with a solution of equal parts water and vinegar. This will lift up even tough stains. Then scrub the sink with a fresh cloth, taking care to wipe down the faucet, drain, and overflow valve. This will keep the surface clean and clear throughout the week.
While spot cleaning is great for getting rid of most dirt, you’ll eventually need to replace the appliances in your bathroom. Let the Orlando junk removal experts at Junk Angel haul away those unwanted fixtures. Contact us to schedule a pickup today.
