Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Clean

Beautiful sink in a bathroom

The bathroom – one of your home’s most important rooms to keep clean, but equally one of the most difficult. Not to worry, Good Housekeeping has helped us round up some ways for you to get more mileage out of your cleaning efforts:

Stop moisture: While showering, crack the door or window and flip the exhaust fan on to help moisture dissipate. After the shower, stretch out the curtain to ensure it dries properly. If you have a shower door instead, consider hanging a squeegee in the shower and take a few minutes when finished to wipe down the walls, tub, and shower doors to delay the spread of mildew.

Use liquid soap: Eliminating a grimy soap dish will help both your counter-top and sink stay cleaner.

Install towel bars: Towels dry quicker when hung across a bar to dry. If you don’t have wall space, look into an over the door towel bar or some hooks to keep things tidy.

Keep disinfecting wipes handy: Tired of toothpaste splatters? Keeping some disinfecting cleaning wipes under the sink can help clean up messes before they have a chance to dry and become tougher to remove.

Keep some used dryer sheets nearby: Use these to quickly and easily pick up any hair or dust bunnies from the floor the moment you see them!

Whether your recent holiday guests left your house in a whirlwind or you’re preparing to host this year’s Super Bowl party, keeping these cleaning tricks in mind will help you in restoring your home to it’s normal order:

Fingerprints on stainless steel appliances – Is your refrigerator riddled with finger smudges? Put some olive oil on a clean rag, then use the rag to rub off the marks.

Scuff marks on wood floor – Non-gel toothpaste can do wonders. Apply some to a clean rag and then rub the scuff marks away. Non-gel toothpaste can also work wonders in removing crayon marks (if you have any kids running around).

Scratch marks on wood floor and furniture – Don’t worry, you don’t need to look at these scratches forever. Mix olive oil and vinegar in a three to one ration, apply the mixture onto a clean cloth and rub it onto the marks. The scratches should disappear in seconds, just make sure you buff it out so no one slips on the mixture!

Water ring stains – A tried and true tactic: lift the moisture out of water stains on wood furniture by rubbing mayonnaise onto the stain!

Cleaning Mistakes You May Be Making

When cleaning your home, common mistakes can muck up even your best efforts. Taking a page out of this month’s Real Simple Magazine, use these tips to save you time and trouble:

  • Placing all utensils in the dishwasher facing the same direction – Placing forks in point up is fine, as it prevents the tines from bending. Spoons and knives however tend to easily fit together – which prevents a complete clean. Next time try alternating some up and others down.
  • Spraying cleaner directly on a surface – Every once in a while this is acceptable, but should really be saved for extremely dirty surfaces. Spay the formula onto a microfiber cloth instead! Wipe-downs done this way require less solution, cutting down on residue buildup.
  • Putting a rinsed toilet brush right back in the holder – Moisture breeds bacteria! Put the brush between the toilet seat and the base of the toilet to allow it to drip dry for 10 minutes. Then feel free to return it to the holder.

kitchen

Cleaning your home this weekend? We know this isn’t the most exciting of chores – especially when you need to tackle the kitchen. However, the more you avoid it, the more you let grease, grime, and mold buildup in a place you prepare meals in!

Try some of these simply, clever, cleaning tricks to tackle the tough spots on your counters, floors, and pans with everyday items:

Clean Countertop Stains with Hydrogen Peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide, water, and a few drops of ammonia can rid most stains that hit your stone countertops.

Mop Your Tile Floors with Baking Soda. One of our favorite homemade cleaners, take two gallons of water along with half a cup of baking soda and scrub away!

Use Salt to Clean Iron Pans. Have some cooking residue on your cast iron pan? Place it on medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. Once heated nicely, add 3 tablespoons of salt. Take your tongs to hold a paper towel, scour until clean. When done, all you have left is to rinse and add vegetable oil to cure.

Make Wood Floors Shine with White Vinegar. Fill a bucket 90% of the way with warm water and the other 10% with white vinegar. Use a mop to coat the floor once and let dry to get floors looking shiny and new!

Use these cost and time efficient tricks to make your day of cleaning not so miserable. Plus, most of these things used can be found around your home. For more tips and advice visit our Facebook.
