In this article, our experts at Pacific Bath Company will share some of our best tips to help you keep a cleaner bathroom.

Prevent Moisture from Accumulating

Mold, mildew, and water damage are all caused by excessive moisture—which is naturally found in all bathrooms. If you want to prevent moisture from building up and causing damage to your bathroom’s surfaces, you’ll need to make an effort to keep your bathroom dry—especially in the wet areas, or the shower and tub.

A simple way to do this is by hanging a squeegee over the showerhead. Remind the whole family to wipe down the tub, shower, and wall surrounds after showering or bathing. Alternatively, you can open a window and turn on your bathroom’s exhaust fan while showering to let the humidity and moisture escape.

Get Rid of Shower Enclosure/Curtain Buildup

With an all-purpose cleaner that contains bleach, spritz the bottom of your shower curtain or the walls of the shower enclosure several times a month to eliminate soap scum, mildew, and hard water minerals. Let the shower to rinse this off and you’ll spare yourself from the need to wash the shower curtains or shower enclosure doors as frequently.

Effective Way to Clean the Walls, Ceiling, and Tiles

Soap and dead skin cells leave behind a microscopic film that can turn into nasty grime that’s hard to clean off. The best way to fight against soap scum is by spraying the walls, ceiling, and tiles using an all-purpose cleaner. Turn on the hot water from the shower for about five minutes and allow the steam to build.

Once you turn off the hot shower, close the bathroom door and let the steam and cleaner to mix for several minutes before you wipe down the walls, tiles, and countertops using a clean cloth. For hard-to-reach spots, a clean microfiber mop or washcloth is recommended.

Keep Your Toilet Squeaky Clean

Pour baking soda into your toilet bowl and leave it to sit for a few minutes. Next, brush the toilet thoroughly and flush. If there are still stains left behind, use a damp pumice stone to get rid of these spots which are caused by mineral deposits and limescale. 

The Best Way to Unclog and Clean the Sink

To unclog the sink, pour white vinegar or baking soda down the drain. Then, pour hot water down the drain as well. You can also clean the faucet with disposable disinfecting wipes to greatly reduce bacteria that may be sitting there. Finally, the grimy narrow space where the base of the faucet meets the sink can be cleaned using a toothpick. 

Eliminate Rust Stains

The drains of the tub and sink can accumulate rust stains which are difficult to remove. An easy cleaning hack is to use toothpaste and an old toothbrush to scrub them off. Alternatively, you can use a paste of borax and lemon juice to brush away the rust.

No matter how well you maintain your bathroom, it will still come to the point that the fixtures and bathroom products will undergo natural wear and tear. When it comes down to this, it is recommended to hire expert bathroom remodelers who can give your bathroom an upgrade.
