The end of winter approaches and the green shoots of spring are on the horizon. Your bathroom has worked overtime. Making sure the children are clean, soaking your muscles after a workout down the gym or following a football match. The day to day routine in your house means that your bathroom gets a simple clean every week. But when the spring comes it may be time for a deep clean.
You could choose to redecorate or change a mirror or bathroom cabinet but the easiest way to add more love to your bathroom is to give it an old fashioned deep clean. Here is a simple guide to spring cleaning your bathroom.
Make sure you have the right cleaning products to get the task done. These do not have to be off the shelf commercially expensive products. There are some organic cleaning compounds that you could use that are less expensive and are kind to the environment. But the products you use for your bathroom are down to personal preference. You have to remember that your bathroom is used by your whole family so be careful before and after the use of any product to ensure that it does not pose a significant risk to you, your children or indeed your pets. You will also need suitable cloths to ensure that you can clean the various surfaces in the bathroom. Ceramics and Glass are the principle areas to clean however you will need to pay attention to grouted areas, tiles, stainless steel and wooden materials. Make sure you have a suitable bin bag to remove any rubbish you encounter (take into account any recycling you can). Finally in terms of preparation you will need to ensure you have plenty of hot water, let's begin grab a coffee.
Starting from the top of your bathroom, (i.e the ceiling and light fittings) use a duster to remove any cobwebs or dust that may have accumulated over the winter. A dry duster can be used on painted surfaces or you could use a little furniture polish to encourage the removal of dust. If you have a vacuum cleaner with a long attachment then this can help with venetian blinds or the top of picture rails etc. You will need to use your duster to manually remove the dust from the top of the door frame and the top of any picture frames you have. Consider the top of any bathroom cabinets or mirrors, you will need to take any items that are stored here and dust accordingly. When these items are removed, consider their use. If you don't use them or they are not visually attractive then remove them. If you find areas of dust that are stubborn then you will need to wash this down with hot water and a mild detergent. Lemon juice is a great alternative to detergent and leaves the bathroom with a fantastic fragrance. Take time to stand back and look for areas you have missed. Once you have reached the floor areas you have dusted your bathroom.
