One of the hardest working rooms in the house is probably the bathroom, and therefore deserves to be thoroughly cleaned as best as possible. #Cleantok has garnered a mass following on Tiktok for its oddly satisfying appeal of a spotlessly clean bathroom. Not only is it crucial to maintain a clean and hygenic bathroom for you and your family’s well-being, but also prevents the spread of germs and diseases. These are 7 common cleaning spots to focus on creating a spotless bathroom in your home.

1. Grout Lines

The grout lines between tiles can accumulate dirt, grime, and mould over time. Regularly scrubbing and cleaning the grout with a brush and mildew remover can help maintain a clean and fresh appearance.

2. Drains

The basin, bath and shower drain can fill up with hair particles, soap residue and dirt. This is the perfect breeding ground for germs, fungi and bacteria as well as can play home to pests such as cockroaches and drain flies. Dirty drains also emit odours and can lead to illness causing family members to get sick. Cleaning your drains should be high on your list and using a drain cleaner gives you peace of mind that your drains are germ free, clean and smelling fresh.

3. Shower curtains

Shower curtains and liners can harbour soap scum, mould, and mildew. They should be regularly cleaned or replaced to prevent the buildup of these unsightly and potentially harmful substances.

4. Behind bathroom fixtures

Often, areas behind and underneath bathroom fixtures like the toilet, sink, and vanity are overlooked. These areas can accumulate dust, hair, and grime. Regularly moving and cleaning these fixtures ensures a thorough cleaning.

5. Showerheads

Showerheads can become clogged with mineral deposits over time, affecting water pressure and quality. Regularly removing and soaking the showerhead in a vinegar solution helps dissolve the buildup and restore functionality.

6. Towel racks

Towel racks and hooks can collect dust and residue from towels and wet items. Regularly wiping them down and removing any buildup ensures they remain clean and functional.

7. Toilet flush

The toilet flush is often just wiped over during a cleaning, but when you think of it, this is one place on the toilet that your hands always touch and should not only be cleaned but sanitised. Giving it a clean with Milton Sanitising Spray will help to keep the germs off and your hands clean (but don’t forget to wash them).
