A clean bathroom environment is one we all desire. But keeping on top of a dirt, mould and rust prone room can be quite tricky. It's important to look after your bathroom though, as over time, lack of care and attention can cause permanent damage to your beloved luxury bathroom suite. Thankfully, you don't need to spend fortunes on cleaning products, and most things you have in the house, such as vinegar, are perfect for getting your bathroom sparkly and dirt free. See our top tips below for the ultimate clean...
1. Remove mould
Remove mouldy grouting or sealant with a toothbrush dipped in a solution of one part bleach to four parts water.
2. Easily Remove limescale
Get rid of dried deposits around chrome taps by soaking a cloth or a kitchen towel with white vinegar and wrap it around the tap. Leave overnight and rinse thoroughly with warm soapy water. If there are any stubborn deposits, remove them with a toothbrush.
3. Keep taps shiny
Brass fixtures can soon look tarnished so clean by making a paste of bicarbonate of soda and lemon juice. Lightly scrub the fixtures, leave for a few minutes and then buff with a clean cloth.
4. Clean mirrors
Remove caked on hairspray from mirrors by wiping with a little surgical spirit on a soft cloth.
5. Remove stains from the toilet seat
To remove stubborn rings around toilet bowls, use a pumice stone. Keeping the stone wet, rub until the ring has gone. Don't try this on enamel or plastic fittings.
6. Descale shower heads
Descale chrome shower heads monthly in hard water areas where they can easily clog up. Soak overnight in a solution of half white vinegar and half water and then rinse.
7. Clean Your Toothbrush
Your toothbrush picks up thousands of germs and bacteria, even after just 1 use. So you can imagine how dirty it actually is when it's been sat on your bathroom shelf for a few weeks. To clean it, and kill all bacteria, soak it in several tablespoons of white vinegar and leave to rest for 30 minutes. Rinse, and use as normal. We recommend doing this every other week.
8. Unblock Your Sink Without Bleach
Using just vinegar and baking soda, you can unblock your sink. No need for bleach or a plumber. Follow the diagram below.
