It is said that if one wants to see the personality of a person, then he/she must check that person’s bathroom. Our bathroom is a reflection of what we are inside, hence, it is important to always clean it. However, how do we keep our bathrooms clean without so much maintenance? How do we keep it from not growing so much mold, scum in walls, or even have a ring in the toilet? How do we keep it clean without so much effort? Follow these simple steps to keep your bathroom clean without so much maintenance.
KEEP IT DRY
This is the most crucial prerequisite of having a clean bathroom. If your bathroom is wet, then dirt and scum can easily develop as everything can be soluble to water. Also, water is a crucial element for bacteria to grow so having a wet bathroom would mean breeding all sorts of bacteria. Remember to have a proper air way system in your bathroom. If your bathroom is dry then basically you would have lesser time cleaning it or mopping it.
KEEP THINGS ALWAYS ORGANIZED
The lesser the clutter, the easier it is to clean. This should be your mantra whenever trying to keep your bathroom clean. Obviously, the more things there are in your bathroom, the messier it gets. Grime can come from these unnecessary things inside your bathroom. Throw away empty bottles of shampoo, useless hair tools, and other containers. Rearranging these things would only bring more problems in the future as you have to rearrange them again if they get topsy-turvy. Rather than arranging them, it would be better to completely get rid of them.
HAVE A CABINET FOR ALL TOOLS
You would always need “tools” in your bathroom. You would need a toilet brush, a suction, rolled washcloths, baskets, scrubs, etc. however, putting them in all places and not assigning them in a cabinet or a place where they should be kept would only make your bathroom look messy. Have a proper cabinet for stuff like brushes and cleaning reagents. Also, provide a stash for your rugs and other sheets.
Keep a proper container for your extra towels, soap, and flushable wipes. Make sure that the things that you buy in the market somehow matches to the color scheme of your bathroom. Having a lot of colors in your bathroom would not add to its organization.
CLEAN BEFORE IT GETS REALLY GROSS AND MESSY
If you keep your bathroom dry and as little things seen as possible, then cleaning it should be a breeze already. You may now only swish some water to it and wipe the floor lightly since grime wouldn’t stick as much if you bathroom is clean. You would not need to arrange you utilities if there are little of them in the first place. Also, you would not even have a hard time arranging them and grouping them together if their color scheme is the same. However, now that your bathroom needs less maintenance, it does not mean that you would also significantly decrease the times of cleaning it. Always remember that a grime can be easily removed if it has only been there for a few days. So even if your bathroom isn’t disorganized yet, try to schedule a weekly cleaning to it still. Spending half an hour a week in cleaning your bathroom is better compared to spending hours in two weeks just to strip away the scum that has developed hardly to the wall, a problem that could have been easily removed had you cleaned your bathroom a week ago. Those are just a few reminders of how you can clean your bathroom easily without having too much stress. Follow those steps in order for you to save time and effort in keeping your bathroom clean.
