After a long, busy week, it’s easy to let the household chores slip for a day and instead enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, this always seems to be the time when you get that phone call from a family member or friend saying ‘I’ll be dropping round your place’. Then it’s time to jump into action, trying to get your home tidy quickly before your visitors arrive.
The bathroom can be especially problematic, so having a few tricks up your sleeve for quick, easy bathroom cleaning is a must. Here’s how to clean your bathroom fast, without breaking out into a cold sweat.
Easy Ways to Clean Bathroom Fixtures & Fittings
The good news is that you don’t need a special ‘easy clean’ bathroom to get your bathroom clean and sparkling quickly. Learning how to clean a bathroom fast is all about following five simple steps that will make it look as if you’ve spent hours getting the room just right, when you’ve only been in there for a quick 15 minutes.
Here’s the easy way to clean bathroom fixtures & fittings:
Clean the Toilet
Start by putting some Domex Ultra Thick Bleach into the bowl (making sure to apply to the rim and allowing it to drip down the sides). Toilet cleaner needs time to sit before scrubbing and flushing, so you can get to work on other tasks while the toilet cleaner gets to work removing stains and smells.
Wash the Sink
Wash your hands after touching the toilet – it’ll keep you free of germs and it’ll help rinse out any dirt from the sink, too. Use a clean, dry cloth to remove any excess water, and then give the sink and faucets a thorough wipe with antibacterial wipes. As an alternative, you may polish it with Cif Cream Surface Cleaner on a cleaning cloth.
Scour the Shower
Quickly spray your glass shower enclosure and bathtub with a good antibacterial disinfectant spray. This is great for getting rid of any soap residue that’s built up over the last few days, and giving a fresh, clean smell. Quickly buff the shower enclosure with a dry cloth to remove watermarks.
Clear the Floor
Grab a brush and sweep the bathroom floor, taking care to get into the corners to remove any dust build up (or switch your vacuum cleaner on if you have a carpeted bathroom). Pick up any large pieces of dirt, like hair, and put it in the bin. Take the bin out and replace the bag if needed.
In the last few minutes before your visitors arrive, spend just a moment or two looking around your bathroom for anything you may have missed, or anything that’s out of place. And don’t forget to scrub the toilet and flush – the toilet cleaner will have worked its magic by now.
Safe Cleaning: Even though you’re in a rush to get the job done, remember that it’s still important that you follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines when using commercial cleaning products in the bathroom, or any other cleaning product such as white vinegar that could cause skin irritation. Before your visitors arrive, pop the gloves on, ensure your home is well-ventilated, and take a few moments to make sure you’re using any bleach products correctly to avoid accident or injury.
