Tidying For Beginners: Pro Tips for Keeping the Bathroom Clean
Cleanliness is next godliness and it is the closest any of us will ever get to being divine. Cleaning and maintaining a bathroom can seem intimidating for most people. This is especially true for those who have relied on someone else to do it for them growing up.
Research and surveys have shown that the bathroom is, more often than not, the cleanest place in a person’s home. It is important to keep it clean, seeing as how it is the most used and shared room in the house where people do some of the most personal and intimate routines.
Cleaning and maintaining the bathroom and bathroom supplies does not have to be difficult. Below are a few pro tips for beginners who want to learn how to clean their own bathroom.
Apple cider vinegar breaks up the gunk
An ounce of prevention really is better than a pound of cure. Cleaning the bathroom can be a massive pain the neck and back. People do not look forward to cleaning the bathroom because it involves a lot of bending over and crouching to scrub and clean those hard to reach places.
A clever and cheap way to prevent any build up of dirt and gunk is to use a simple DIY solution of apple cider vinegar and water. Spraying this after a shower or use of the bathroom can do wonders in preventing dirt build up and save you from having to spend a lot of time cleaning cramped spots.
Use a shower caddy
Shower caddies are practically a must in any bathroom. They increase the amount of space for storing bathroom essentials like shampoo or soap, to avoid storing them on the countertops. This basically erases any chance that these products will leave a mark on the countertop. Imagine a nice clean countertop without all those bottle or soap shaped stains on them.
Stop rust with nail polish
A lot of bathroom supplies are made out of metal, and rust is the biggest issue for anything that has metal parts. Clear nail polish is a good enough solution to prevent your bathtub from becoming a rust bucket. Swipe on a few coats to prevent the rust buildup from products stored in aluminum cans.
Don’t forget the fan
Most people would assume that the toilet is the dirtiest place in the bathroom. In reality, the dirtiest place in the bathroom is the one thing that most people do not touch and often take for granted, the fan.
The fan is the dirtiest part of the bathroom mainly because it is the one thing that is often left alone. There are plenty of videos that show how to disassemble the fan for cleaning. After disassembly, cleaning the fan is as easy as wiping it.
A pro tip for this one is to add a wax coating to fan blades, just like a car. The wax will protect the blades and prevent dust build up around the fan.
