You should not run the rooms and then spend half the day off putting them in order. It is better to spend 15 minutes every day to remove the “hot” spots – wipe the mirror surface today, wash the floor tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow clean up the cabinet and drawers. Such a routine will be much more efficient, and also significantly helps to save time and effort.

Household chemicals – be careful!
Now there are a lot of different detergents on sale, but we will not compare which one is better and which is worse. We will only advise you to pay attention to the recommendations of manufacturers and remember that there are aggressive products that can be used to clean the toilet, but not the bathtub and sink. The acids they contain can damage thin enamel.
Refresh curtain and rug
The polyethylene curtain and the rubber shower mat can only be washed by hand. It is better to do this in soapy water with a soft brush or sponge. But a fabric curtain, a terry rug can be safely entrusted to a washing machine (mode at 30 ° C with powder without bleach). If already at this step it seems to you that cleaning the bathroom is an impossible task for you, then it is better to turn to professionals for a deep cleaning service. Such cleaning includes not only putting things in order in the bathroom, but also in other rooms.
Dealing with limescale
If the water is hard, then lime deposits (stains, plaque, stains) on tiles, plumbing, shower cabin walls cannot be avoided. A folk remedy for dealing with them is an acetic solution. They treat surfaces, leave for a while, and then wash off. And, for example, to clean the shower head, it is dipped for 10 minutes in a mixture of water and wine vinegar (a liter of water and 100 ml of 6-8% vinegar). Alcohol helps restore a bright shine to plumbing and destroy harmful bacteria. Wet a sponge with it and wipe the faucets with it.
The formation of limescale can be avoided if the drops are not allowed to dry out. That is, wipe dry surfaces splashed with water after each shower. At first glance, such a recommendation is from the realm of fantasy. But by no means! You can remove drops on tiles, glass, mirrors, shower walls and other smooth surfaces in one minute with a glass vacuum cleaner. It instantly absorbs moisture without leaving streaks or drips. Rub dry and nothing is needed to shine! And it is also convenient, because it runs on battery power and holds a charge for a long time.
Cleaning tile joints
Over time, the seams between tiles become dirty. The reason for this is again lime deposits, moisture, mold and detergent residues. It is difficult to clean the tile joints, but it is possible. The folk method is a toothbrush, soda (or vinegar, toothpaste, ammonia, fine salt) plus patience, effort and time.
Instead of soda, there may be special chemicals. But note: it is absolutely impossible to use soap to clean the seams. It causes mold spores to spread!
Perfectly helps to cope with pollution in the bathroom – a steam cleaner. Due to the variety of nozzles, they can be cleaned from dirt, rust and limescale bath, toilet bowl, washbasin, tiles, mirrors.
And all this is possible without the use of chemicals. Only the power of steam! And for quick and effective cleaning of tile joints there is a special nozzle.
Changing brushes and washcloths
All cleaning equipment – brushes, washcloths, which are used to clean the bathroom, must be changed at least once every two months. It is very important. Otherwise, instead of disinfection, you can get the opposite effect.
And now let’s look at simple but effective life hacks
- Pour cleaning agent into the brush holder. In this case, you can do a mini-cleaning every time you use it.
- To prevent the mirror from fogging up in the bathroom, it is worth applying a little shaving cream on it, and then wipe everything dry with a soft cloth. This trick will help prevent the appearance of plaque and streaks.
- Wax paper, which is used for baking, is ideal for cleaning mixers. It contains wax, which helps protect plumbing items from the appearance of an ugly plaque.
- If there are tin bottles on the shelves in the bathroom, then you should cover them with a thin layer of nail polish (transparent).
This will help prevent rust on the containers. As you can see, quickly cleaning the bathroom is not so difficult.
