How to keep your Bathroom Looking brand new

Mirrors

Mirrors should be streak-free from all angles. If they’re not, they will not look clean and you’ll just be forced to do them again. The mirror will also stay cleaner longer if it’s really clean. You should use a foam window or glass cleaner and for tougher stains you can use vinegar and water

Toilets

Make sure to clean the bowl, lids, fronts, bases, tops, and especially in and around the seat fasteners where dirt tends to collect. Use scouring powder along with liquid toilet cleaners.

Wipe the base of the toilet and in behind the toilet by hand including the baseboard as a mop just can’t do this job.

Fixtures

Clean all lights (including the bulbs once they have cooled), toilet paper and towel racks, and the tops of the shower curtain rod. Also take care to clean the underside of taps especially where taps meet sinks and tubs. Hot water and a simple scrubbie will take away all gunk.

If you have a shower door with metal trim, take the time to clean the track. If you have halogen lights over your mirror, try to clean the mirror before you turn on the lights, as the lights heat up the mirror and therefore make it impossible to get a streak free finish.

Towels

Try and fold all towels hotel style (in three). This is a simple technique that will really give you that professional look. See the welcome video for how to do this folding technique.

Walls

Many people have splash marks on the wall where the hand towel is kept. Check your walls all around the bathroom especially near the toilet.

Seven Dusting Tips

Move Items

It’s important to take the time to move items prior to dusting. This is actually more efficient than picking up each item and dusting under it. If you’re worried about how things looked before you moved them and want to make sure everything goes back exactly the same, you can always take a picture on your cell phone or camera before you start.

Window Ledges

When dusting window ledges, raise all blinds or curtains to access all ledges.

Ceiling Fans

Once you get your ceiling fan clean, it’s a cinch to do it every time. I’ve seen many ceiling fans that can be easily reached by a footstool or chair that are literally dripping with dust.

Baseboards

We always do baseboards. Most services never touch them but they are one of the key elements to making your house look clean. Even if you clean everything else, dirty baseboards will stick out. If you haven’t got to your baseboards in a while and they are really dirty, then clean them with a damp mop and/or vacuum them.

Door Jams & Light Switch Plates

A damp cloth with a little cleaning product on it will look after these easy to miss areas.

Patio Doors

Patio doors, and entry doors are a must. Watch for nose prints where animals live.

Basics

These other areas are all part of what I consider to be basic dusting that you can do if your time is limited and you’re just trying to tidy up a bit and get your place looking fresh quickly.

Basics that should not be missed include: bed frames including the side rail, the side of cabinets and armoires, door panels, banisters and spindles, chair legs and bases, curtain rods, pictures and their frames, stairwell ledges, dining room table legs and bases.

If your house has a lot of vacuuming, you should lift the cushions on
your couches and dust crumbs and debris onto the rug or floor. This saves time when vacuuming and avoids having to pull out the vacuum again later when you notice this.

What is so Difficult about Moping?

Baseboards baseboard

Always do the baseboards first, (with the rag mop) and make sure that the mop is wet enough (but not soaking) to actually clean the baseboards. Do the entire house at once. It won’t matter how clean your house is at the end of the day, if your baseboards are still dirty, then your house will look dirty.

Tile Floors

Use the same mop to wash all of your tile floors. You can do these all at once, or if you prefer you can do a floor at a time.

Whether it’s tile or hardwood, be sure to mop around table and chair legs, and under furniture.

Hardwood Floors

When mopping hardwood floors, use about a cap full of Murphy’s Oil Soap in about 6 liters of warm to hot water. You must get the mop head wet and ring it out by hand, again you want it wet but not soaking wet.

General Moping Tips

Mop your way out of a room, and it helps to keep the mop head going in the same direction of the grain of the hardwood floor – this reduces the chance of streaks forming.

When it’s all dry, put back your mats, chairs, and anything else you picked up off the floor.
