So, the key to keeping bathrooms clean and hygienic is regular maintenance. Maintaining a clean bathroom may even seem like punishment.

  1. Clean Mirrors Without Leaving Streaks and Lint Behind:

When cleaning a mirror, it’s important to avoid wiping in circular or left-right motions. These can cause dust and debris from the cloth to be re-deposited on the mirror surface, leaving streaks. Instead, adopt a tight S-pattern from top to bottom by damping lint-free or a micro fibre cloth. 

For those who prefer non-vinegar solutions, boiled black tea or baking soda can be an alternative. These solutions can be just as effective in achieving a streak-free mirror.

  1. Notice Soap Scum –Shower, Doors, Tile, and More:

Notice a white, chalky residue that appears as a white or grey filmy layer covering the surfaces around the bathtubs and sinks. Soap scum, when left alone and allowed to build up, can combine with mould or mildew and have other discolouration and odours. 

Soap scum may even get as hard and concrete because it basically is resides of Calcium stearate and magnesium stearate mixed with hard water.  This makes it more difficult to remove, even with the best bathroom cleaners.

  1. Remove Mildew Spots on Tub and Toilet Bowl:

By sprinkling Epsom salt on the scum and leave it helps take soap residue down the drain and prevents it from sticking to surfaces. Since it has natural cleaning properties it can ideal be used as a paste with white vinegar, and dish washing liquid.  

  • For stubborn stains allow the paste of Epsom salt solution to stay overnight (for toilet bowl). A completely coverage even of a 15-20 minutes helps loosen the fresh coated mildew (for bath tub).
  • Finally, a brush or a sponge and scrub the areas until clean. 

Although it’s safe, vinegar can have a strong smell when used in small spaces. So ensure good ventilation while working.

  1. Remove Soap Scum from Metal Taps and Shower Heads:

For cleaning metal fixtures, follow the shower manufacturer’s instructions. Pay attention to the surface material finish, or you could risk damaging the metal.

a)     For brass, or bronze surface –use an exact 50:50 ratio mix of vinegar and water. 

b)      For stainless steel surface –use undiluted vinegar for stainless steel.

c)      For oil-rubbed brass or bronze surface –use only water.

Cleaning Technique:

  1. Fill a plastic bag with vinegar and attach it over the fixture. Submerge the shower heads entirely and secure them with a rubber band.
  2. Allow the solution to work for at least 1 hour.
  3. Remove and rinse surfaces with water and dry with a microfiber towel.
  1. Remove Soap Scum from Ceramic Sink and Tiles:
  1. Create a paste with 1 cup of baking soda and 1/4 cup of distilled white vinegar in a small bowl. 
  2. Dip a sponge and let it stay for 15 minutes on tile.
  3. Wipe down with a damp microfiber cloth. 
  4. Rinse in water and dry-up.
  1. Remove Soap Scum from Natural Stoned bathroom flooring:

Tiles are easier to maintain as one can opt for any commercial cleaning product alternative to traditionally homemade cleaner. However, bathroom countertop tables or flooring made of natural stone are not ideal to suit even eco-friendly oxygen-based bleacher/stain removers such as vinegar or ammonia. They have a high pH value and can damage and cause discolouration.

Preparing a homemade cleaning solution by assuring it’s free from harsh chemicals. Not only are homemade cleaners inexpensive, but they are also much easier to customise.
