In the previous article Seattle maid brigade promised to talk about exact bathroom cleaning tips and here they are.
First, make sure that the cloth you are using is clean and dust-free because otherwise you can only spread more dirt. Then, it’s up to you which method to choose – either modern one using any chemical you like or a traditional way that involves making a special mixture. If you prefer the green approach, you should find a spray bottle and pour there 1/3 cup of white vinegar and 1/ 4 cup of rubbing alcohol. Use this liquid to clean a mirror, but remember to spray it on a cloth,
not directly on the mirror. However, if you are not that old-fashioned and prefer to look for a special spray in a store, our maid brigade suggests you spraying just a little bit on a tiny spot to check if the results are satisfying, not damaging. Never use very sharp things to make stubborn spots come off – you can ruin your mirror.
In order to remove the build-up in your drain, try pouring a cup of baking soda followed by a cup of white vinegar at least once a month. Use your usual bathroom cleaning product for the sink surface and faucet. Scrub it gently paying attention to make-up and toothpaste stains. Wipe it with a clean paper towel (not a newspaper) until it’s completely dry.
Tubs and Shower Stalls
To prevent your tubs and shower stalls from often cleaning, wipe the walls off with a dry cloth every time you take a shower, especially if you use aroma oils. Before you start, remove hair from the tub and the drain using a paper towel. Seattle maid brigade gives you an option of a chemical and green cleaning method for this part of the bathroom as well. The fiberglass can be cleaned with light detergents or liquid soap. Use the mixture of white vinegar and water in order to remove the hard water stick-ups. The same goes with glass shower doors – they will sparkle if you wipe them with a cloth dipped in white vinegar. To fight soap scum and dirt use the spraying mixture of following ingredients: 25% of mineral oil and 75% of water. Traces of water on the metal frames around shower doors and enclosures can be removed with lemon oil. The rust easily disappears with the help of commercial rust removers. The solution of salt and turpentine will give your bathtub a fresh look.
Our housecleaning services recommend you buying a nylon shower curtain, not the plastic one – it can be easily washed in a washing machine. However, you can take into consideration the following trick – hang an old shower curtain behind the new one and all soap scum and germs will stay on your old one, making the top shower curtain look fresh and new.
The best way of keeping your bath mat clean is throwing it in a washing machine together with towels. The terry cloth scrubs the mat, and the results are amazing.
Seattle tile cleaning offers you the following tile cleaning advices: before cleaning the tile walls, run the shower water at the highest temperature so the steam can loosen the dirt. After that, with the help of a sponge mop, wipe them with a mixture of 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 cup clear ammonia, and 1/4 cup baking soda in 1 gallon of warm water. Then rinse with clean water. Cover the walls with furniture polish to prevent soap scum stick-up and water spots.
Mold and Mildew
Keep the bathroom and shower doors open every time when you are not using it, and especially after you have just used it. If possible, open the bathroom window. Remove mildew by spraying just washed shower curtains with a disinfectant. If you are the lover of old-fashioned methods, try eliminating mold and mildew with a cloth dipped in vinegar.
We hope that these instructions will work for you and remember to wear the rubber gloves when you are dealing with any kind of chemical.
