Cleaning Bathroom Fixtures Made Easy

Bathroom Sinks
The first thing you see when you enter a bathroom is the bathroom sink. So, it is necessary to keep the sink tidy and sparkling. An all-purpose spray cleaner can be used for this purpose. You can also make a homemade spray cleaner by diluting vinegar with water. An equal proportion of each constituent gives you the right mix. Vinegar can also be helpful in removing remains of soap stuck to the surface of your sink.

If your sink has grime clinging to it that is not easy to remove, careful use of abrasive cleansers can be an extremely helpful resource to scrub grime away. Then again, you can go for a homemade mixture of water and baking soda for this purpose. Last, but not the least, for your sink to maintain a sparkling sheen, finish the cleansing process by drying the sink with the use of a soft fabric.

Faucets and Shower-heads
Faucets and shower-heads can be a bit tricky to clean, but don’t worry. A key to their cleaning is, knowing what material they are made of.

Stainless Steel or Any Other Metal Surface
One way to clean the shower-head or a faucet is by using a bag filled with vinegar. You should attach the bag using a rubber band in such a manner that the liquid gets in contact with the surface of the shower-head or a faucet. This helps in cleaning the minerals that get deposited on its surface. Then turn on the water to clean the minerals and vinegar away.
Oil rubbed and brass finish
These should only be cleaned by using water. You should always go through their manuals to read about their care, because cleaners can damage their surfaces.

Toilet and Toilet Bowl
Use an all-purpose spray cleaner or a solution of water and vinegar to clean the toilets exterior. Then wipe it away. Use cleaners such as dish washing liquids and water on the toilet seat to clean its surface. The toilet bowl should be sanitized. Antibacterial cleaners for toilets are available and can be used. In the end, you should wipe the surrounding area with a soft fabric.

Bathtubs
Porcelain and Ceramic Material
Find out if your bathtub is made up of ceramic or porcelain material. It is important that you keep its surface care in mind while using bleach. Bleach should be mixed with water and then used for cleaning purposes. This reduces its strength and does not cause it to make depressions on the surface or damage the finishing of your tub. You may also use an all purpose spray cleaner, baking soda mixed with water, or a solution of water and vinegar to clean your bathtub. Stain removing cleaners can come in very handy when dealing with rust.

Fiberglass and Acrylic Material
Cleaning and maintenance of an acrylic bathtub is easier as compared to porcelain bathtubs. So is the case with fiberglass bathtubs. Use of a simple dish washing liquid and water can do the job.

If you use aromatic or other bath oils, it is necessary that you wipe the bathtub soon after bathing. This does not let the scum build up and makes cleaning easier.
