The bathroom, next to the kitchen, should be the cleanest room in the house. However, many of us keep the bathroom for last as it can be a disgusting area to clean. The best way to clean a bathroom depends on whom you ask, but there are some great general guidelines to follow. One highly recommended rule of cleaning is to clean from the top down, and this method usually works very well in bathrooms. Planning and preparing your cleaning products and supplies ahead of time is also a big help. Decide if you prefer ammonia or bleach-based cleaning products as the two products should never be mixed or a poisonous gas may be formed. Some people like to use bleach to clean a bathroom, but also use an ammonia based glass cleaner for the mirror. This is fine as long as bleach and ammonia aren’t mixed together and a paper towel or cloth used for one isn’t used for the other.
Rather than using commercial cleaning products to clean a bathroom, household items such as baking soda and vinegar make environmentally-friendly options. Baking soda can be made into a paste by adding a little water to it. The paste can be used as a mild abrasive for cleaning sinks and taps as well as toilets and bathtubs. An old toothbrush usually works really well to scrub the tiny areas in between taps. Vinegar diluted with water or used full strength can make a good cleaner for mirrors and floors as well as glass shower doors.
