Cleaning Bathrooms

CLEANING BATHROOMS

Do you cringe when someone knocks on your door? Afraid to let them see your bathroom?

It makes so much simpler if you become a minimalist in the bathroom. Less clutter brings you peace and saves you cleaning time 

Try to remove extra things from counters and put them away before you clean. Clean Top to Bottom.

  • Remove Clutter
  • Put things away
  • remove cobwebs from walls and ceiling
  • Spray your dry microfiber cloth with window cleaner or water to make it damp, and clean and shine mirrors
  • Clean bathtub
  • Clean sink
  • Spray and wipe counters

MICROFIBER CLOTHS

MICROFIBER – SUPERIOR CLEANING

Not all cloths are equal. Microfiber traps 95% of bacteria with only water. There are many sources. Some are too thin so I use them for dusting. The too thick ones I save for washing the car.

They work best when slightly damp. They are washable but please do not use fabric softener or bleach.

Now time to tackle your toilet.

Clean a Toilet

HOW TO CLEAN A TOILET


    I clean a heavily used office and find this procedure best for fighting odors around the toilets


Note: Don’t forget to spray your cleaning solution on:

  • cabinets
  • baseboards
  • walls
  • spray and wipe all vertical surfaces and baseboards near the toilet ( anywhere there may be splash back)
  • Allow 10 minutes “dwell time” for solution to work
  • Solution will drip down into crevices – hinges
  • Use old toothbrush in crevices if necessary
  • Then wipe surfaces with Microfiber cloths or Paper Towels

find it at grocery stores or Walmart

Always follow directions on bottle – do not use on marble

LIME AWAY

LIME AWAY

 
Lime Away works very well and fast to remove rust and lime build up – but you have to rinse it well and do not allow it to remain on your surface very long – it is aggressive. 

  • Follow directions on the bottle
  • Do not use on chrome if your faucet is old 
  • Do not use on marble 

SCRUBBING BUBBLES

SCRUBBING BUBBLES ORIGINAL
SCRUBBING BUBBLES MEGA FOAMER

 

The Original
 This is good for light clean up in showers.  Citrus based.  I spray on shower walls after my shower, keeps it clean.   Avoid leaving on chrome fixtures,  Kills many things on shower floor.

QUATERNARY CLEANERS

LYSOL QUATERNARY CLEANER


Quaternary cleaners are used in doctor’s offices and hospitals to kill bacteria and viruses. 

Find it at Home Depot or janitorial supply stores

Good for floors and toilets.

ENZYME CLEANERS

NATURE’S MIRACLE KILLS WITH ENZYMES

Enzyme cleaners can work on urine and bacteria to eliminate that odor.  You can buy this at pet stores or janitorial supply stores. 

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE CLEANERS

CLOROX HYDROGEN PEROXIDE CLEANER


  H2Orange2 is a hydrogen based cleaner.  They use hydrogen peroxide in doctors offices for spot cleaning. This is very safe and does not have to be locked away. Peroxide kills bacteria without eliminating good bacteria.

Or choose this Clorox product. Hydrogen Peroxide cleaners will kill the bad bugs but not the good ones, so it’s good for our environment and your health.

RENUZIT FOR ODORS

RENUZIT KILLS ODORS

 
Sometimes I have to add a little Renuzit spray.  10 minute dwell time required. 

If you still have an odor problem

  • try an enzyme cleaner
  • or try spraying the area with a steam cleaner
  • try a disinfectant cleaner



  Or you can use a dilution of Mr Clean All Purpose and Hydrogen Peroxide
