Toilet and shower

Tie the plastic bag and leave it overnight. Next morning, remove the bag, wash and rinse.

Shower doors

Let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes. Pat it dry using a microfiber cloth from top to bottom for extra sparkle.

You can use any commercial grout cleaner, if you don’t have it, you can easily prepare it at home by mixing ½ cup baking soda, ¼ cup hydrogen peroxide, 1 teaspoon dish soap.  Apply the mixture to the grout, and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Lastly scrub the area hard with a grout brush and rinse. You should also consider sealing your grout every six months to block moisture buildup.

For the bathtub, fill it with hot water for some time. Sprinkle baking soda, and two tablespoon of dish soap. Use a stiff brush or sponge to scrub the tub. If your tub has stains, you might consider using a commercial cleaner.



Now spray the countertops, tile, walls and the ceiling with all-purpose cleaner. Now close the door and let the hot shower run for 5 minutes to build the steam, so that steam and cleaner both mix together in order to effectively clean the bathroom.Use a clean cloth for the surfaces, and clean dry microfiber mop for the walls and ceilings. A fresh coat of wax on your tiles every 12-months will help keep watermarks at bay and reduce your workload.

  1. Thank you, I will definitely make use of these tips. I’m just wondering though, will the vinegar solution linger in the cleaned areas? Or will I need to wipe something on it after it dries to remove the smell?
