Bathroom cleaning can look like a monotonous chore, but it doesn’t have to necessarily come across as an overwhelming task. Just to make your life a little easy, we have compiled some simple and easy tips that will assist you in keeping your bathroom clean and hygienic, even if you have time crunch!
Tip 1: Disinfectant Wipes
If you wish to achieve quick and convenient cleaning, be friends with Dettol Multi-Use wipes. These highly effective wipes can be used to clean sinks, bathtubs, trash cans, bathroom floor and toilet seats, and they are potent enough to kill 99.9% bacteria if used as directed. They are capable enough to take care of both germs as well as stains, thus reducing the need of multiple cleaning tools. It is highly advised that you keep a pack of disposable disinfectant wipes in your bathroom for fast and simple cleaning. Paying attention to the areas that accumulate dirt and grime regularly will only exhaust few minutes of your day, but it will save your hours of effort when you decide to deep clean your bathroom.
Tip 2: Tackle the toilet
Flushing the toilet keeping the lid open can spread germs all over your bathroom (even to your toothbrush), so make sure the lid is shut before you flush. Make it a point to clean the toilet bowl weekly with toilet cleaner and toilet brush, and follow it by wiping the toilet seat, flush handle and lid with disposable wipes – just dump them in the dustbin later.
Tip 3: Shower and bath
It would be a good decision to open the window, switch on the fan and close the bathroom door when you are taking a shower or bathing. This will stop the build-up of mould and mildew. Otherwise, you can use Dettol Multi-Use Hygienic Liquid that can efficiently tackle mould and mildew instantly, leaving you with a clean and shiny bathroom. When you are done with your bath, take some time and clean the tiles, bathtub and shower door. Ask everyone in your family to do the same whenever they get time, which will help in reducing the build-up of mould and lime scale, thus reducing your cleaning time in the long run.
Tip 4: Little and often
Keeping some time aside on a regular basis to clean your bathroom can save you a lot of time and effort in the long run. Always keep a pack of disposable disinfectant wipes under the bathroom sink so you can clean up any toothpaste, other spills or water marks before they get dry and become difficult to clean. Also, ask the men in the family to religiously wipe down the toilet seat after using so that it is clean for the next person.
Tip 5: Don’t forget your towels
Bathroom necessities like towels, shower curtains and bath mats breeds lot of germs, so ensure that you clean them too. Make sure that you wash your bath mat and towels once a week in hot water (at least 60 degrees) with laundry sanitizer, which gets rid of odour-causing bacteria. Once you are done washing them, hang the towel to dry. If you see the towels lying on the bathroom floor, it’s a good idea to put them to wash.
Tip 6: Multi Task
Cleaning your bathroom little and occasionally will help you save a lot of time during deep cleaning, but that doesn’t mean you completely skip the idea of deep cleaning. Fortunately, there are many ways to improve your deep bathroom cleaning. Begin by putting the toilet cleaner in the toilet bowl and focus on other areas while the toilet cleaner gets to work. Wipe from top to bottom, start with the walls and tiles, and then the floor. Keep the sink for the last in case you have to wash any clothes on the go.
So there it is, hopefully these tips would help in making your bathroom cleaning routine less taxing and less time consuming.
