Tired of scrubbing soap scum? Do you know the best way to clean bathroom tile? Let’s take a look at ways to keep your bathroom tiles looking sparkling clean.
According to an article at cleanmyspace.com, “Tile Cleaning Tips”
“What you’ll need:
1) Tub and tile cleaner. For porcelain, glass walls, glass tile and ceramic tile, you can use any tub and tile cleaner that you like, there are great products that I love like Mother’s Choice, or you can use a homemade soap scum cleaner (vinegar and dish soap). For natural stone such as granite, slate or travertine, you can only clean it with neutral soap or a specialty stone cleaner.
2) Double-sided sponge. Look for the non-scratching models, because you don’t want to scratch any finishes. Don’t use a cheap sponge here, you need a good quality sponge or else you’ll be working overtime unnecessarily.
3) Microfiber cloths for drying walls and the tub, a squeegee if you have one
4) Baking soda for some added abrasion, just in case.
5) Full strength vinegar for heavily-stained glass shower doors.
Here’s my ultimate shower cleaning strategy
Remove everything from the shower, bottles, soap bars, sponges. If you want to clean your loofahs, you can fill your bathroom sink with a cup of hydrogen peroxide added to your bathroom sink, and let that soak for about 10 minutes while you clean. Place bottles to rest on a towel or counter. Remove a bath mat if required.
Pull the curtains out of the way, consider flipping them up over the shower bar or removing them altogether. Spray the tiles in the bathroom with your favorite bathroom cleaning product. Do not, under any circumstances use vinegar or a traditional ‘bathroom cleaning product’ on stone walls or floors because you will ruin your walls. You can also consider using a steam cleaner. Let the product sit for about 5 minutes. This ‘dwell time’ will allow the product to do the work for you, so the longer you let it sit, the better it can break down soap scum. For dwelling, the surface has to be wet, so don’t be a stinge-meister when it comes to applying product, really let it soak.” To read the entire article click here.
