Bathroom cleaning is quicker and more pleasant in a room that has sufficient storage to keep lotions, make-up, razors, and toothbrushes off window ledges and sink edges. Buy a wall cabinet with a door and encourage everyone to store their bathroom articles in it. You can take out the contents and clean this cabinet semi-annually rather than cleaning monthly as you need to with open shelving says a 40+ year old Residential Cleaning Company in Evanston, Il.
Some tips to make your bathroom look neater and easier to clean include:
Buy a soap dish with a drip tray: China looks prettier than plastic and you can stick it in the dishwasher periodically.
Choose bath bubbles over oils for an easier to clean tub. Acrylic tubs are the most prone to rings, so wipe them down ager every bath.
Lift out plastic slip mats do dry every time you bath. They can mark the bath if left in permanently, because bathroom heat may stick them to the bath. Also, water gets trapped underneath and promotes the growth of germs and mould.
Hang towels on a towel rack, not the side of the bath.
Change towels and bath mats frequently– twice weekly if you can. Having two complete sets in different colors may jog your memory on changing. It also makes it easy to launder the whole lot at the same time.
Fit a simple high shelf that children can’t reach for the toilet cleaner and to stack extra towels.
Always send children back to pick up the towel they left on the floor, or empty out the sink, or do anything else they forgot to do. One day, these good habits will become automatic.
Pick up the free perfume samplers from beauty counters. They make great bathroom fresheners that smell a whole lot better than most room sprays. Perfume can stain, though, so spray it into the center of the room with care, avoiding fabric curtains, wood, and anything else that can’t handle an alcohol-based liquid.
