How to Clean Your Bathroom without Scrubbing
The bathroom is that one room in the house that people generally want to be clean. Remember the last time you had to go, and you found yourself in the bathroom or toilet with yellowed tiles and mildew and all things nasty? Not a pleasant memory, isn’t it? Regardless of what country or culture you come from, we all want a spotless bathroom.
For some, the bathroom is even a sanctuary where they can relax, unwind from the day, and be totally free of the sweat and grime of long, arduous work.
Yet, let’s admit it: we don’t always want the chore of cleaning the bathroom to fall on our shoulders, do we? It definitely is a chore. Or so many of us believe. Thankfully, there are ways by which we can complete this necessary evil of a task without as much as doing any scrubbing. Don’t believe
it? it? Well, read on.
Make a concoction of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide
You surely have a box of baking soda hiding in your kitchen cabinet. This versatile ingredient not only makes our baked goodies good, but it also can do the heavy lifting in the cleaning department as well.
What you need to do is simply mix one part baking soda and one part hydrogen peroxide in a container (definitely not one that you will use for food), and then spread the mixture thinly on your bathroom tiles, toilet bowl, and sink.
You can leave this mixture on these surfaces that you need sparkling for thirty minutes to an hour, depending on how tough the stains are or if there is any discoloration on them. Rinse it thoroughly with water when the time is up, and voila! Clean bathroom!
Don’t have hydrogen peroxide? Use vinegar
If you’re out of hydrogen peroxide, no need to panic. Grab a bottle of vinegar. Any basic bottle will do. You don’t want to waste your balsamic on this!
Just mix one part vinegar and just enough dishwashing liquid to make it sudsy. Then, just like with the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, apply this mixture onto your bathroom tiles and leave it on for as long as you see the stains or discoloration fade if not go away completely.
This mixture is certainly less potent than the first one, however, so take note that this won’t be much help for very old stains or longtime discolorations.
Eliminate stains with bleach
If you do need heavy-duty cleaning, this one will do the trick: Boil as much water as you think is needed to cover the surface area in your bathroom, and mix it with bleach. Bleach is a very strong ingredient, and it can sting your eyes and cause discomfort or damage when inhaled, especially for a long period of time. So remember to be careful with it. Wear a surgical grade mask when preparing this mixture.
Leave the water and bleach mixture on your tiles for at least an hour or until you see that the stains are gone. Once done, rinse thoroughly with water.
Once done, enjoy your spotless, sparkling bathroom!
