Bathroom cleaning is no fun. Scrubbing tiles – even less. And if you have decided to think more about nature and be mindful with the products you use, the picture starts to look gloomy. Fret not, it’s still possible to have a bathroom so sparkling clean, it can outshine even your wildest dreams. And today we share all the cleaning tips you need.
Cleaning the Bathroom Tiles With Minimum Effort
We probably shouldn’t have to tell you that scrubbing bathroom tiles is a hefty task. Unless you have us on your side, that is. We suggest that you take a hot shower half an hour before you start cleaning. It will loosen up the buildup grime, soap deposits, and limescale that have been stuck to the surface since forever. After that, cleaning the bathroom tiles will seem like a child’s play and, as a bonus, you won’t have to use harsh detergents and chemicals at all.
Cleaning the Bathroom Tiles Naturally With Vinegar
Now that the grime has been “weakened”, it’s time to attack. For a nature-lover like yourself, detergents aren’t an option. But worry not, you can easily make your powerful tile cleaner at home.
Simply sprinkle baking soda all over the bathroom tiles and let it work for a couple of minutes. Next, mix a cup of hot water with half a cup of white vinegar, put the mixture into a spray bottle, spray the tiles and observe it work its magic. Baking soda and vinegar start a chemical reaction that breaks down the soapy scum like nothing else. Say goodbye to the long hours of scrubbing because now it’ll be ten times easier to clean your bathroom tiles.
How to Clean the Grout
Tile grout is the least fun object to attend to in a household. We say it from experience. You can still clean it the way we mentioned above, but you’ll need to use a small scrubbing brush to reach the dents. A toothbrush will be perfect for the task, and we suggest that you use a new one with hard bristles for the best result. Use the same technique mentioned above to clean the bathroom grout and make sure to rinse the area well afterwards.
If you can still see some stains, mould or mildew, it’s time for a heavier weapon. Use hydrogen peroxide and baking soda paste to scrub off all residue, and repeat the process if needed. Again, don’t forget to rinse the area well with hot water after you finish scrubbing.
How to Keep Bathroom Tiles and Grout Clean for Longer
Now, wouldn’t it be perfect if you hadn’t had to scrub the tiles that often? We think so too. To keep your bathroom in a good condition for longer, simply spray the tiles with a 1:1 solution of water and vinegar every time before exiting the shower. You don’t even have to be that strict, twice a week will help you clean the bathroom tiles a lot less often.
And that’s about it! Give these tips a go and let us know how it went.
