Admittedly, no one really enjoys cleaning their bathroom, just the thought of hair clogged drains, toilet stains and moisture-loving mold and mildew, turns a person off instantly. However, when you do clean your bathroom, obviously your first thoughts are how to completely eliminate and get rid of all those nasty germs and soap scrum right? Well, you may want to head straight to the chemical detergent aisle in your local supermarket, and grab all the chemically induced spray and gels you can find, but that wouldn’t be a very green and eco-friendly approach now would it?
Chemically harsh and strong ingredients that commonly get used in cleaners and gels will often linger in the air and water in your bathroom and even sit on the surfaces of your bathtub. This can have very harsh and damaging effects on your skin and cause all kinds of irritations and unnecessary problems. You may be wondering if freestanding baths are hard to clean, or what is best to clean acrylic bathtubs? We have a wide variety of acrylic tubs that will make it easier to keep clean.
By using eco-friendly and homemade products, with ingredients that won’t cause harm to you or to the environment, you’ll be able to keep your bathroom clean and safe.
Use a Baking Soda Paste to Battle Soap Scum
When you mix baking soda and an all-natural/organic dish soap, you will create and unbelievable scum-battling paste that could be put to the test with any store bought bathroom scrub! This combination scrub is the perfect scrubbing paste for a bathtub that has gathered up soap scum. You can also use this combo on shower doors, tiled floor and walls, or rusty stains in basins. Apply the past to the affected areas and allow it to sit for at least 30 minutes before scrubbing it and then wiping it away with hot water. This paste can be slightly abrasive, so use it sparingly on surfaces that are delicate and only when absolutely needed, not as a weekly cleaner. This won’t make it hard to clean a freestanding tub and is a great option as to what to use to clean an acrylic bath.
Vinegar – The Mold Killer
Every shower eventually builds up some form of mold, especially in the corners. This is one of the simplest and most effective methods when you want to get rid of mold in your showers. Spray vinegar into the corners and other spots that may have started with a mildew build-up. Then let the vinegar dry on the surface before spraying it again and wiping it away. There is a mild acidity in vinegar which helps in the loosening up of particles and will kill bacteria. Preventing mold from forming is a lot easier than having to get rid of mold that has already formed. So try and make sure that you spray your shower down with a vinegar and water mixture, after every single shower.
Shower curtains probably pick up the most mildew and mold in a bathroom, and can get quite disgusting if not treated. The last thing you want when getting in a shower is a gross looking shower curtain rotting from mold. If the mold build-up isn’t too bad, you can give it an easy spray and wipe it down with a vinegar and water solution. You can also use a baking soda and a damp sponge to wipe it down. However, if your shower curtain is looking rather nasty, it may be time for a good scrub! Take it off its hook and lay it flat so that you can scrub the mildew parts with a vinegar and baking soda paste. You can also chuck them in the washing machine, but instead of pouring in washing detergent, use half a cup of baking soda and a couple of spoons of vinegar. You should throw in a few towels too; this will help scrub the milder off the curtains surface.
There are so many ways to keep your bathtub clean and hygienic, without having to put you or your family (or the environment) at risk! Stick to these tips and your bathroom will stay clean and safe, for everyone.
