The tip to a perfect bathroom is keeping it clean, but that is not easy. In fact, it is the worst part of a bathroom because it takes so much time and elbow grease. Plus, it is not a pretty sight! But, fear not, because there are ways of maintaining your bathroom without the vacuum. Seriously, there is no need to spend hours scrubbing the toilet or the shower. Here’s how you do it.
Step 1: Put It Away
It is the first rule of keeping any part of your home clean: cut down on the clutter. The odd appliance or toiletry that is not in the right place will automatically make your bathroom look untidy. Plus, with toiletries they tend to be messy, what with all the creams and sticky substances. Put the lid back on and put them in the cupboard or the vanity mirror where they belong.
Step 2: Keep ‘Tools’ In Plain Sight
There is always going to be a bit of bathroom DIY going on in any home. Bathrooms have that knack of needing a lot of work, which is why tools are so important. But, keeping in line with the first rule of cleaning without cleaning, these tools need to fit into the décor. The main way to do it is simple. In fact, it is that simple that you almost certainly have one in your bathroom without even knowing it. The common toilet brush is a tool that sits next to the toilet and is always ready to go without a moment’s notice.
Or, you can buy a roll of cheap clothes that look like towels. No one will ever know you use them to wipe down surfaces instead of washing your face. For more information, take a look at Bathshop bathroom DIY tips that make the conspicuous seem inconspicuous.
Step 3: Clean Before It Gets Dirty
Okay, so you might have to get your hands dirty, but not as dirty as normal. Normally, your bathroom would spiral out of control before you felt the need to clean, but if you clean it before it gets dirty, it only take a few minutes out of your day. All you need are five minutes a day and a bit of motivation, and you will never have to deal with an icky bathroom again.
Step 4: Install A Wet Room
The main problem with any bathroom is the moisture. The moisture from the shower gets on the walls and is a hive of activity for bacteria. The bacteria can then form into dirt and grime, otherwise known as mould. But, wet rooms don’t have this problem because all the water and moisture drains a lot more effectively. Whereas conventional bathrooms need air sources and venting systems, all wet rooms need are an open drain and a squeegee to funnel the water in the right direction.
Cleaning doesn’t have to be difficult. All you need is a little motivation and to keep on top of it, and your bathroom will be spotless. Or as close as possible!
