Bathroom is a place where we spend a lot of time on hygiene or improving our appearance. But it is also a place where there is often more heat, more humidity and this can lead to mould. But these are not the only impurities we need to deal with here. Many people reach for chemicals when cleaning the bathroom. Cleaners, which are all over the shelves in the shops. But this method may not be safe or cheap. Yet going the responsible and effective route is not easy. We have a number of great cleaners at home, we just overlook them. All we have to do is look around and use the right one.
Clean joints made easy
Cleaning all the joints in your bathroom is no mean feat. It’s a tedious and unpleasant activity that takes up time that you could be spending more enjoyably. The biggest problem is white joints, they get dirty quickly and look very unsightly. Try the baking powder trick. Simply moisten the joints and sprinkle the powder over it. Now leave for at least an hour. Now would be a good time for a coffee and a delicious dessert. After the time has elapsed, wash the surface with a sponge.
Lining as good as new
Now you’ve discovered how to clean the joints easily. But how do you clean the tiles themselves? Homemade helpers and ordinary raw materials will be more effective in fighting dingy tiles, plus they won’t lose their colour and shine. Vinegar, the best and oldest domestic cleaner, will be the right choice for removing both soap residue and limescale. Before cleaning, dilute the vinegar with water and then use a cloth to wash the tiles. If you have limescale around the faucet, splash vinegar on it and leave it for at least 15 minutes.
Basin and bath
For a beautiful and like-new sink, all you need is a paste of baking soda and vinegar. Simply take a jar of baking soda to which you will add vinegar by the tablespoonful. Once the paste is formed, you’re done. Apply the resulting mixture to a sponge and you can start scrubbing the surface. Clean the acrylic bathtub using lemon juice and warm water. Mix the juice of half a lemon with a glass of warm water and wash the tub. It will be clean and smell irresistibly fresh. Who wouldn’t want a place to relax after a chaotic and often stressful day shiny and beautifully clean? Finally, we would like to recommend homemade toilet bowl cleaning cubes. For the cubes you will need:
- 1 tablespoon of detergent
- ¼ cup of citric acid
- a cup of baking soda
Mix all ingredients and place in ice cube trays. Wait for the cubes to dry and then store them in an airtight bottle. We recommend placing the cube in a very soft cloth or old dry cleaner holder and fixing back in the toilet bowl.
