For regular cleaning of the wet area, use mild soap and water with a non-abrasive cloth. Avoid using harsh chemicals and scrubbing devices as, over time, they can dull many surfaces. Good for disinfecting is a vinegar and water mix, but keep in mind that the smell can cause irritation, so proper ventilation and face covering is necessary.
Keep disinfecting cleaning wipes in your bathroom cabinets to make quick work of any type of cleaning. Make a habit of using one every morning and every night. That way you can be sure that your bathroom will always stay clean.
Reuse Dryer Sheets
Used dryer sheets are perfect for picking up hair or dust bunnies because they are usually statically charged, so keep some in your bathroom cabinets for easy dusting without having to use the vacuum cleaner.
Get Rid of Bar Soap
When used day in and day out, bar soaps cause such a mess. Rather consider using a soap dispenser or foaming soap to keep your bathroom cleaner.
