Your bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in your home, so you'll want to keep it as clean as possible, not just for your family, but for guests too. Different fixtures in your bathroom require different techniques in order to clean them properly. Here's what you need to know about how to clean some of the most common bathroom fixture types:
From toothpaste to hair to dirt from your hands, sinks can get dirty quickly, so you'll need to clean them frequently. In most cases, a general all-purpose cleaner will do the trick. If your sink is especially grimy, you may need to use an abrasive scrubber to get off that stubborn residue.
Many modern faucets are made with "living finishes." This means that the look of your faucet will evolve and change over time. Because of this, you'll want to use a cleaner that is designed for the particular material of your faucet. Follow the instructions on your cleaning product to ensure that you don't cause any damage to your finish.
Showerheads can get a build-up of minerals over time, particularly if the water in your area is on the hard side. To get rid of any sediment that is clogging your showerhead, fill up a plastic bag with clear vinegar, and attach it over the showerhead with a rubber band. Let it all soak in for about an hour, then turn on your shower to flush out the residue. You'll be amazed by how much smoother the water will flow after this.
Over time, mildew can build up on your shower curtains, which is not exactly an appealing thought for an area that you use to get clean. With mildew comes bacteria, so to kill it, you'll need to use bleach. Dilute the bleach in a solution of water according to the directions on the bottle. Using a sponge, wipe the mildew off with the bleach solution. Thoroughly rinse it clean using your shower. If you have a fabric shower curtain, you can simply toss it in the washing machine.
Nooks and Crannies
For those hard-to-reach areas that always seem to look a bit grimy even after you have wiped them with a sponge or cloth, an old toothbrush can be a miracle worker. Those tiny little bristles are perfect for getting deep into the cracks that no other cleaning technique can reach. Just be sure to clearly identify the toothbrush so that you don't accidentally stick it in your mouth later on!
