Bathroom and toilet hygiene in the home

The bathroom is one of the places in our homes, which require most cares. We all know how fast the grime can appear in this room and how hard it can be to remove it promptly and effectively. Usually, in the shops can be found all kinds of special cleaning products that can help us with the disinfection of our bathrooms. The only problem is, however, that they are filled with different chemicals which are dangerous for us. Without those products, it could be even harder to keep our bathrooms grime-free. The hygiene of this place is still very important, so we can’t afford to risk our safety and our family’s health.

You may think that the toilet is the dirtiest place in your bathroom, but the truth us that the taps of the sink and the shower are covered with more microbes. The same applies to every other place in the room which you constantly touch. Mold, on the other hand, is another problem that could cause serious health complications, in case you don’t take measures on time. Except that it will make your bathroom look dirty, it could also cause health problems like asthma to you and to the other members of your family. If you want to secure the good hygiene of your bathroom, here are some tips that will help.

  • Make a cleaning schedule – Cleaning the bathroom certainly isn’t a very pleasant thing, but it is still important. If possible, you can even pay more attention to the disinfection of the toilet, shower, tub and other parts of the room. By making a special cleaning schedule, you will be able to organise your time more effectively and never miss a cleaning. It is enough to plan a disinfection of certain part of the bathroom for each day of the week and by the end of it, the whole place will be sparkling clean.
  • Purchase reliable eco cleaning products – In order to avoid the unpleasant health complications, consider replacing the ordinary cleaning supplies you use at the moment with eco ones. The shops offer a big variety of toxic-free disinfectants not just for the toilet, but also for all other parts of the bathroom. Before you buy them, however, make sure that you check the labels. Some products claim to be eco-friendly, but they still contain some dangerous ingredients. The label will tell you everything you need to know.
  • Make your own homemade disinfectants – If you don’t want to take chances, you can also prepare your own cleaning solutions at home. This is easier than you think and the best part is that you won’t need any special ingredients. The white vinegar will help with the removing of all stains and with the disinfection all surfaces in the bathroom. Just mix it with water in a bottle and start spraying. The baking soda, on the other hand, will help with the cleaning of the sink, shower and tub. Mold build-ups could appear around the toilet and the corners of the bathroom, so better prepare a solution of 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil and 2 cups of water. Spray the area without rinsing. The tea tree oil smells nice and will keep the mold away from your bathroom.

Here is how with a couple of simple steps you can take care of the good looks of your bathroom. The most important rule, however, is never to underestimate the significance of the disinfection of the entire place. Make sure that you stick to your special cleaning schedule and we can assure you that you won’t have to worry about the good looks and hygiene of your bathroom any more.
