The bathroom is not only one of the most important rooms to keep as clean as possible, but it is also one of the hardest to clean. The best way to make it easier would be preventing it from becoming all too dirty to clean up. In many ways, people judge the home of families when they see their bathroom. A clean bathroom reflects on what the household habits are in terms of hygiene. This is even more so if you are trying to sell your house, now or in the future. The bathroom is arguably at par with the kitchen in making or breaking a sale. Below are some of the most common and practical tips in keeping this very important room in top shape for years to come.
Use Water Repellent Coating
Using this on bathroom cladding, walls and doors make it easier for you to just wipe off moisture. This also prevents limescale formation, watermarks from minerals, and soap scum will just bead up and run off to the drain. These are the same coatings you can find on automotive applications.
Moisture Is Not Your Friend
A squeegee comes in handy for this as a dry shower most likely will prevent mildew and mold buildup in the shower. After a splash, take the time to wipe down the tiling and doors of the shower, especially if you have glass doors and enclosure. This might not even take a couple of minutes extra and will save you a lot of time of cleaning in the long run. If you have shower curtains, make sure to stretch all the way it can so it dries faster.
Keep Things Organized
Whether you have recesses or cabinets, ensure to keep countertops and stuff inside the cabinets organized. If its a mess the next person who opens and uses them will most likely follow the example and create even more mess. Use a liquid soap that you pump instead of bar soap at the sink to lessen soap grime and scum. Remember that a clutter-free countertop and sink instantly makes a bathroom feel cleaner. Towel bars are also a great help in making sure things are organized, so make sure you have enough of them.
Take Care Of The Shower Curtain
If your bathroom uses shower curtains, pay extra attention to their bottom parts as they are the most soaked during a shower. Spray bleach on these parts so that mildew and molds do not build up. You can use the actual shower to rinse it off and this way avoid doing laundry for your shower curtains.
Cleaning Your Porcelain
Most of the fixtures in your bathroom are made with porcelain, and they are a breeze to clean. Cleaning them and wiping down after use is the easiest way to prevent limescale and grime build up. Never use abrasive detergents as they may damage the ceramic coating and do more harm than good. Use a soap solution or a mild detergent for sinks and counters to wipe down. Doing this regularly will prevent and limescale and any build up.
