Shower and Tub Cleaning Basics: Keep your Bathroom Looking Brand New

Posted on September 1, 2019

Are you frustrated with the way your bathroom looks? Does it make you sad seeing those grubby tiles and your dirty tub? Do you want your bathing area to look like one of those display showcases in a bathroom showroom? Then maybe it’s time to give your bathroom a thorough cleaning. Sure you might clean your bathroom once a while but are you sure you’re doing it right? Here are some proven and effective tips to help you give your bathroom a new lease on life.

The Bathing Area

The bathing area consists of your shower and your tub. Since this area is one of the most abused areas in the bathroom, it can get pretty hard to clean. Over time, the substances contained in your bathing products can accumulate and harden on the surfaces of your tiles and your tub. Before anything else, spray the entire area with general-purpose bathroom cleaner. However, don’t rinse it off right away. Allow it to stand so it can soak into all those stubborn stains. Giving it time to soak in also allows it to dissolve all of those nasty deposits on the surfaces of your bathing area. After giving it some time, you can start scrubbing the most affected areas on your tub with scrubbing pads. For the tiles on the floor and walls of your shower area, use a good hard tile brush. This will help you clean the tiles while cleaning the grout in between the tiles at the same time. For very hard to reach areas, you can use an old toothbrush.

After you give everything a good scrubbing, you have to rinse everything off. Be very careful when rinsing and make sure that you get every single square inch of your bathing area. This way, all of the dirt you worked so hard to scrub off will get washed away. If you miss a few spots, the dirt can settle and start to harden again.

However, there may come a time when cleaning just doesn’t cut it anymore. This is normal since all things have predetermined lifespans. In cases like this, you should start considering remodeling your bathroom. If you are not sure how to proceed, visit a reputable bathroom showroom today to get some great ideas.
