Keeping your bathroom clean is definitely one of the most intimidating parts of housekeeping. And for good reason, your bathroom is prone to developing bacteria and mold because of its moisture levels. But it’s no denying how regular bathroom cleaning is a must. It’s the hygienic thing to do, as you want to keep your family away from germs and bacteria. It’s also embarrassing when guests see an unkept comfort room. And if you don’t clean, eventually it’ll smell moldy and funky and you’ll have to sign up for a deep cleaner in order to get rid of all the dirt and smell.
So make it a habit to always clean your bathroom, here are 4 tips you should know about to make this daunting task easier to bear:
- Do it regularly
Setup a regular cleaning schedule and do your best to stick to it. Setting aside a specific hour dedicated to getting your chores done helps motivate you into not skipping your bathroom. Ideally, you want to clean your bathroom at least once a week so it’s easier to maintain. Leaving your bathroom dirty for longer days also piles up the work you need to do.
- Choose your chemicals
Your choice of chemicals also play a big role in ensuring the cleanliness of your bathroom. You want to make sure you get the best bathroom cleaner for your household. There are several products out there that do the same job but you have to consider other factors too such as the smell, toxicity, price, and so on. If you have kids around or if you’re pregnant, you don’t want to be exposed to harsh chemicals so you may want to choose natural and organic cleaners, even homemade ones. For the bathroom tiles you can simply use powdered detergent and bleach to clean and disinfect even the grout. A multi-surface cleaner would work well on your bathroom mirrors and sink counters.
- Be equipped with the basics tools
There are a lot of tools you can purchase to get the job done. But if you’re unsure about which ones to get, here are the basics: gloves, scrub brush, and toilet brush. You’ll be able to do a lot already with just those, as long as you have the right cleaning agents. Gloves are useful in protecting your hands. You can use a scrub brush to brush the floor tiles, sink, and even walls. And the toilet brush, of course you have to use exclusively for the toilet bowl.
- Make it a team work
You don’t always have to do it on your own, if you have kids around you can let them help you so that you impart the value of cleanliness too. Making it a regular weekday activity could be fun if you do it together. You can assign someone to the bathroom while the rest cleans other areas of the house. Then you can rotate and clean other rooms next week. Encouraging the whole family to help out when they can, especially in chores like this is good training for them. And after the household chores you can all go out for an ice cream treat!
