Cleaning your bathroom is one important task to banish odours, kill any harmful microorganisms and keep it sparkling and spotless. However, the process of disinfecting often uses hazardous products that can bring respiratory problems and trigger allergies in some people.
For a safe and more environmentally-friendly solution, there are several household items that you can utilise. Read on to find out a few simple ways to green-clean your bathroom.
- Cleaning tiles
To green clean your tiles, you will need a lot of baking soda. Mix a cup of baking soda and a bucket of warm water. Squeeze a lemon for a fresh aroma then mop your floor.
To remove mould and mildew growth, dip a sponge paintbrush into white vinegar and apply it on the stained area.
- Cleaning the toilet
Vinegar and baking soda are a perfect mix for a sparkling clean toilet. Make a mixture of one tablespoon of baking soda and half a cup of vinegar. Pour this solution on the toilet bowl and let it sit for 20 minutes. Give your toilet a good scrub and do the whole process every week.
- Bathtub and shower cleaning
Vinegar is a popular choice to kill mould growth. Make a mixture of water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture all over your bathtub and shower. Let the solution sit for about 10 minutes; this will dissolve mould and grime. Wipe the surface with a damp cloth.
- Wash your shower curtains
Remove your shower curtains and toss them in the washing machine. Pour a cup of vinegar in addition to your laundry detergent. Shut the washing machine off when it’s filled with water. Let the curtains soak for two hours then continue washing.
- Don’t forget your faucets and mirrors
Dip a sponge in vinegar and dab it on water marks every five minutes. The vinegar’s acid content will soften mineral stains and soap scum deposits. Then wipe off the residue with a dry cloth.
