Bathroom Cleaning

  • Shower Tile: Use a tile cleaning solution to remove soap and hard water build-up on the shower tile. Follow up with a quality paste wax and use a dry cloth to buff the tile and prevent future water spots.
  • Mildew: Dip a few cotton balls in bleach and let them sit on top of mildew spots as you clean the rest of the bathroom. When you finish cleaning the bathroom, remove the cotton balls and rinse the area with water. The mildew should be gone.
  • Plastic or Vinyl Shower Curtains: Remove the shower curtain and spread it out on a large, flat surface. Use a hose to rinse the shower curtain, and then use a sponge soaked in a bathroom cleaning solution to scrub the shower curtain. Rinse again and repeat this on the other side of the shower curtain. Allow the shower curtain to air dry before putting it back on the hooks.
  • Shower Door Tracks: Grab an old toothbrush and use it to loosen up any dirt and grime along the shower door track. Use a vacuum to remove the loose dirt. Follow up with a liquid spray cleaner and wipe away any remaining dirt. Slowly pour water onto the shower door tracks to rinse them off and wipe them down with a dry cloth.
  • Shower walls: Spray down your shower walls with a phosphoric acid cleaner to remove mineral deposits and water stains. Wipe the cleaner away with a sponge. Use a hand sprayer to apply a degreaser and remove the soap scrum. Wipe the degreaser away with a clean sponge.
  • Shower doors: Spray the shower door with a white vinegar scrub from top to bottom.
  • Toilet: Put on a pair of rubber gloves and lift the toilet seat. Flush the toilet to get the sides of the toilet bowl wet. Apply a generous amount of powder or liquid toilet cleaner to the inside the toilet bowl, covering the sides. Let the cleaner stand for the recommended time listed on the cleaning product directions. Use a toilet brush to scrub the inside of the toilet bowl. Use a disinfectant spray to clean all sides of the toilet seat and lid.
  • Bathtub: Put on a pair of rubber gloves and spray all-purpose bathroom cleaner on the walls above the bathtub. Allow the cleaner to sit for the recommended amount of time stated in the product directions. Rinse or wipe the cleaner off. Use tile cleaner and a grout brush to clean any dirty tile grout. Rinse again. Apply a cleaning solution to the bathtub. Allow the cleaner to sit for the recommended amount of time stated in the cleaning product directions. Use a scrub brush to clean the bathtub. Rinse well. Scrub away any remaining soap scum using your scrub brush or an old toothbrush. Rinse that again. Finally, apply a non-abrasive bathroom cleaner if the bathtub is acrylic. If the bathtub is fiberglass, use a special fiberglass cleaner. Gently scrub the bathtub using a soft-bristle brush. Rinse the tub well.
