Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Smart Fiber Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Do not mix cleaning items

With a Smart microfiber cloth, no chemicals are needed unless the area to be cleaned is extremely dirty. Remember to use different cloths for the toilet area and for other surfaces. Doing so helps prevent germs from being spread. This also applies to all the cleaning items used in the bathroom such as sponges and brushes.

Cleaning toilet bowls

It is usually sufficient to clean the outside of the toilet bowl with a wet microfiber cloth. Use a little environmentally friendly cleaner if necessary. Use vinegar inside the bowl to disinfect it and remove dirt. Pour the vinegar into the bowl and let it sit for awhile before scrubbing with a toilet brush, and then flush. Wash your toilet brush from time to time with an environmentally friendly cleaner/detergent.

Cleaning bathroom sinks and faucets

Use the 2-sided Smart flower sponge – one side is for heavy-duty cleaning and the other side is for polishing. The sponge cleans dried toothpaste and dirt swiftly. Due to its round shape, it is easy to clean behind faucets and pipes. You can remove rust stains by adding some lemon acid or vinegar to the cloth. 
Wipe off shower cabins, tile walls and faucets after showering before dirt dries. Use an old toothbrush to remove hard to reach dirt in between tiles and behind the faucet. 

Shower cabins, tile and mirrors

Wipe off shower cabins, tile walls, tubs and shower faucets with a microfiber cloth after showering before dirt dries since it is much easier to remove then. Use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe off tile walls and mirrors.

Clean the sink drain

Clean the drain in the shower and bathroom sink once a month to prevent drain clogs and foul odors. Do not use a blocked pipe dissolvent to unclog drains as the chemicals can damage pipes. If the drain is clogged, try pouring a large pot of boiling water down the drain. If this does not work add a cup of bicarbonate and a cup of salt to a pot of boiling water and pour the mixture into the drain. If there are still no results, contact a plumber.

Bathroom floors

The easiest way to clean bathroom floors is to use a microfiber mop with water alone or to add a small amount of environmentally friendly cleaner for a fresh fragrance.

Shower curtains

To avoid build up of mildew, you should rinse the shower curtain with hot water after showering to remove soap, shampoo and dirt residue. You can also wash shower curtains in the washing machine from time to time.
