There is nothing more refreshing than a sparkling clean bathroom – but are you cleaning your ceramic sanware correctly?

 

Follow these three tips for the most effective outcome!

 

1.    Use a lemon-based cleaner 

Using a lemon-based cleaner does not only leave your bathroom smelly fresh, but it is also effective for removing stubborn stains, breaking down dirt, and killing bacteria. Lemon-based cleaners will not only keep your ceramics sparkling but can also remove hard water stains from your taps and stainless steel bathroom accessories.

 

2.    Do not use a microfiber cloth 

Using a microfiber washcloth might seem ideal for cleaning up your bathroom ceramics, but it is not the case. Microfiber cloths hold moisture which may cause them to smell and also trap bacteria. Dirt and other particles stick to microfiber cloths which may cause surface scratches to your ceramics. 

 


3.    Wipe/clean the surface with a cotton cloth 

The best washcloths for bathroom use are cloths that are 100% cotton. You want the cloths to be as absorbent as possible, without holding moisture in. This is also the most environment-friendly option for keeping your bathroom clean.

 

Tip: It is important to keep your cleaning tools clean as well because you could be just spreading bacteria instead of cleaning. After each clean, secure the brush handle between the already-cleaned seat and the pan so that it hovers over the bowl; pour bleach over the bristles. Let stand for a few minutes, then douse with a pitcher of clean water. Next, fill the brush canister with warm, soapy water and let sit; dump the dirty water into the toilet.

 

For cleaning your cloth; Fill a medium-sized bucket with warm water and soap, place the cloths in the bucket after half an hour and rub cloths gently to remove any remaining dirt, rinse the cloths with water hang to dry.
