One area within your home that accumulates a ton of germs is the bathroom. Here are five quick tips to get this space squeaky clean and germ free.
Tip One: Cleaning Your Shower Curtains
Showerheads, curtains and liners collect dirt, dead skin and mildew.
You can clean your shower curtains and liners quite easily. Simply run through a washing cycle with a cup of baking soda for extra cleaning power.
Tip Two: Cleaning Your Toilet Bowl
Even when using the most reliable bathroom cleaners there are still stains that remain in your toilet bowl. A quick and easy way to get rid of these spots is to pour a cup of baking soda into your toilet bowl and let sit for about a half an hour. Apply a good amount of force with a brush and watch as your bowl becomes squeaky clean. If spots remain repeat this process followed by your favorite bathroom cleaner.
Tip Three: Cleaning Your Sinks
Cleaning your sink is easier than you think. Grab antibacterial cleaning spray, a half-cup of baking soda and a clean cloth. Dampen the area with warm water and apply a thin layer of baking soda. Spray the antibacterial spray over the resting baking soda and let sit for a few minutes. Dampen the cloth with warm water and wipe away the baking soda from your counter top or sink.
Tip Four: Keeping Your Hands Clean
Keeping your hands clean after using the bathroom is essential to your health. The cleanliness of your hand towels play a large part in your hands’ cleanliness. To limit the spread of germs from the bathroom to other areas of you home, wash your hand towels every 4 to 7 days. Simply toss your hand towels into the washer with hot water, a 1/2 cup of baking soda, two tablespoons of antibacterial soap, and your detergent.
Tip Five: Keep Your Bathroom Air Flowing Clean
What would we do without bathroom ventilation? Cleaning your ventilation fan regularly will ensure a bathroom environment that feels and smells great! To increase the longevity of your bathroom vents, clean your fans regularly. It’s quite simple. Make sure to turn off the power to the fan, remove the protective covering and clean the vent and use a vacuum to remove any dust or hanging debris. Clean the fan blades with a damp cloth and lastly replace the cover. After you turn on the power to the bathroom, your ventilation should be good as new.
