Cleaning your bathroom is never the quickest job in your house cleaning rota in Hampstead, but there are tips you can use to make it a little easier on yourself.
For all domestic cleaning jobs, always use microfiber cloths. Buy quite a few and for each new area you should use a clean one to wash and one to dry. These can be easily washed in the washing machine later and used again in your home in Hampstead, NW6. The benefit of this type of cloth is that it holds a lot of water and can buff dry to a clean streak and lint-free shine.
2) Cleaning Products
For a cheaper alternative to lime scale removing cleaners, use white vinegar from the supermarket. This leaves no odour when washed off but can remove lime scale easily. Unscrew the shower head and put it head down in a cup of white vinegar and watch the lime scale dissolve away. Rinse and reattach to the shower hose. For taps, use a freezer bag, place a cloth inside to absorb the vinegar, pour in vinegar until the cloth can absorb no more. Then attach it to the end of your taps by placing an elastic band around and leave it for about an hour. When you come back after a while and scrub slightly the lime scale should be gone.
3) The Bathtub
For the bath, it is best to use a pre-prepared bath cleaner to avoid scratching the surface of the bathtub. There are many foaming sprays but an all-purpose liquid will do the job perfectly well in NW3. Take a wet non-scratching cleaning sponge and apply some neat multipurpose cleaning liquid, scrub all around the bathtub paying attention to the areas around taps and drain holes. Rinse off. Buff to a clean dry and shine with a dry microfiber cloth.
For mirrors, it is best to fill the sink with cold water and a few drops of washing up liquid. Use one microfiber cloth dipped in the solution to clean the mirror and another, dry one to buff it off to a dry sparkle. No fancy window or mirror cleaning fluids are required.
5) Toilet and Sink
For the toilet, all that is required is a disinfecting fluid, either foaming or not – it doesn’t really matter. Squirt it under the rim of the toilet and leave it for at least twenty minutes. Clean using a designated toilet brush, ensuring to wipe around the seat and all sides when finished. The sink in your bathroom in NW11 needs the vinegar treatment to any lime scale spots. After that, fill the sink with cold water and a few drops of washing up liquid. Using your microfiber cloth, scrub all around, release the water and with a dry microfiber cloth dry the whole area, including the taps.
6) Other Tips
Any shelves or cabinets can be easily wiped down using a damp cloth that has been immersed in the water and washing up liquid mix. Using this simple mix makes them less likely to dust up again instantly and means they won’t need rinsing soon. This method is known as damp dusting and unless your bathroom cabinets are made of antique wood, it is perfectly safe. Change all bath towels, mats and hand towels at this point to add to the clean feel of the room. Instead of using aerosols, a scented candle can be much nicer and pleasing to the eye in the bathroom.
7) Cleaning Services
Of course, there are professional cleaners who will come and whizz around your bathroom in Hampstead but employing cleaning companies can be a bit more expensive. However, in case you can’t find the time to do it yourself, this is the best solution.
