The bathroom is that room at home where you start and finish your day. Unfortunately, because of the humidity and heat, your bathroom is a favourite harbour of countless germs and bacteria that are dangerous for your health. This is why, when you do your usual home cleaning, it would be a good idea to pay more attention to your bathroom.
It may seem strange to you, but it’s a fact – the bathroom, in which you maintain your personal hygiene, so you could be healthy and neat, actually is quite a dirty room, filled with contaminants. The bathroom should be a part of your house cleaning at least once a week and even more often if you have a big family and young children.

Germs and bacteria are hiding everywhere – there are around the toilet, in the sink and the bathtub, on the shower curtain, even the toilet paper and the shower head are covered with it.
Often bacteria are the invisible cause of bad odour in the bathroom, and it will not disappear by using some air fresheners. So instead of concealing the filthy face of the bathroom, clean it regularly.
Cleaning your shower and tiles
In order to reduce the number of bacteria in your bathroom, replace the plastic shower with a metal one. If it’s handheld, dip it in a bowl of vinegar and let it stay in there for several hours, even overnight. Scrub its holes with an old toothbrush and use a pin to remove the blockages. From time to time run strong jets of hot water to wash away the dirt and finally wipe the shower well. Tile cleaning advice.

If your shower is static, pour heated vinegar in a plastic bag and tie around the shower head. After several hours rinse with hot water and dry it. Regular cleaning of your shower will prevent filth to come to your body when you are taking a shower.
The sink in the bathroom is an even bigger outbreak of bacteria than the shower because it absorbs all kinds of dirt.
- Use soft paper to remove the gathered filth around and in the drain. Scrub the deposits on the sink using an abrasive sponge, baking soda and hot water.
- Apply detergent (preferably with citrus ingredients) and let it stay for about 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat the scrub procedure with the sponge, rinse the sink with hot water and dry well. For more cleaning services and tips click here.
