There are tons of tiny tasks that need to be taken care of around the house on a daily basis, and it can be hard to keep up. Bathrooms, which should get a deep clean at least once a month might go three or four without even being touched by a mop or a sponge. Putting together a simple list of cleaning tasks in the bathroom can make the job much more straight forward and easier overall. To clean the bathroom like a pro, you’ve got to hit all of the normal spots including the mirrors, floor, sink and bathtub, but there are often a few key spots that people miss. Make sure you hit these locations on your next bathroom roundup for the most comprehensive clean.
4 Bathroom Cleaning Spots That Often Get Missed
Combs and Brushes
Combs and brushes can get clogged with hair and hair products like mousse and hair spray. To clean them properly, run a fine toothed comb through each tool to get the hair out, then put the items in a large basin filled with warm, soapy water.
The drain stopper that sits down in your sink drain can get extremely clogged and dirty in no time. To clean it, remove the stopper and soak it in a solution of baking soda, vinegar and water for about an hour. Remove the stopper, and scour it with a sponge to remove the excess gunk.
Light Bulbs and Light Fixtures
Sometimes light fixtures and bulbs can be the dustiest, grimiest areas in a room. Don’t forget about these places in your bathroom by swiping them with a damp cloth each time you clean. If fixtures have dead bugs in them, you’ll need to unscrew the attachments, empty the bugs into the trash, and soak non-electrical items in sudsy water for about twenty minutes before drying and replacing them.
Bathrooms and especially shower rooms often have fans for exhaust. These can get dusty and grimy in no time flat. According to Grimebusters Ltd if you don’t take care of these fixtures often, that dust and grime can turn sticky and hard to remove. Clean exhaust fans by dusting first, and then using a soapy sponge to do the rest.
