How to Clean Your Bathroom Effectively: Essential Products and Steps 1200 800 Martini Spa

Have you ever considered how to effectively and quickly clean your bathroom?

The bathroom is the area of the home most susceptible to potential contamination.
If not cleaned properly and not ventilated, it’s easy to encounter the formation of mold, germs, and bacteria, which is why it’s essential to sanitize it correctly. But how do you thoroughly clean the bathroom? In this article, we will give you the best tips for cleaning your bathroom quickly and with the right tools.

What products should you use to clean bathroom surfaces?

When preparing to clean the bathroom, you typically have to face several adversaries: encrusted limescale, bad odors, molds, and stains are always lurking! To ensure maximum hygiene and cleanliness in the bathroom, it is therefore important to rely on the right tools. Let’s see what you should arm yourself with to clean the bathroom in the best way possible.

Sponges and cloths for washing

Cloths and sponges, in the bathroom as in the home, are a universal solution. Microfiber and cellulose are perfect materials for their absorbent power and because they release liquids well, polishing even without the use of detergents.
Ideally, to clean the bathroom, you should arm yourself with cloths made of both materials.
Martini Spa therefore offers you Hygiene+, the innovative product line dedicated to home care, to stop bacteria and ensure safe and guaranteed hygiene over time. Martini Spa’s products are integrated with antibacterial elements like silver ions, copper, thiabendazole, and zinc pyrithione, to inhibit the growth of bacteria and ensure maximum protection.

Sanitizing the bathroom with the right detergents

The choice of detergents is also fundamental to effectively clean the bathroom and ensure perfect sanitization. Avoid DIY solutions and mixtures made with vinegar and baking soda. Besides polluting groundwater, they may not sanitize well.

To remove dirt, it’s better to rely on limescale removers and sanitizers, preferably ecological and biodegradable. Excellent are the detergents containing citric acid-based formulas, capable of cleaning the bathroom well without irritating the skin.

N.B: if you have other products open, don’t rush to buy eco-friendly detergents. Remember that the first way to clean sustainably at home is to finish what you already have!

The gloves

Before cleaning the bathroom, remember to wear a pair of gloves for cleaning. This way, you’ll avoid direct contact with bacteria, dirt, and aggressive detergents.

Gloves are necessary to adequately protect your hands from the strongest detergents that could irritate the skin and cause even severe burns. Remember, the well-being of the person and the environment are the most important things, and we at Martini Spa know this well!

The steam cleaner for cleaning the most difficult corners

Last but not least, is the advice to use a steam cleaner. With steam, you can easily and deeply sanitize carpets, shower corners, and bathroom surfaces. Moreover, steam is the best sanitizer when there are people with weak immune systems or those suffering from allergies or asthma at home.

How to Deep Clean Your Bathroom in 7 Steps

But now let’s get to the point: how to deep clean the bathroom? Essentially, the goal is to disinfect, remove dirt, and organize. Let’s see the process in a few simple steps.

1. Tidy up!

The first thing to do to clean the bathroom is to remove everything that creates disorder. Put as many things as you can in drawers and avoid leaving brushes, bottles, towels, etc., around. In general, in the bathroom, the fewer things there are, the better!

2. Sanitize the sanitary ware

Toilets and bathtubs are the surfaces where the most bacteria accumulate. Use a suitable disinfectant to clean the surfaces and deeply sanitize. The Martini multi-purpose sponge with scratch-free fiber is ideal for this task. The vegetable cellulose side is absorbent and gentle, while the fiber side is ideal for removing dirt without scratching.

3. Remove the dirt…

With a damp sponge and a bit of stain remover, eliminate stains and residues from the shower walls and sanitary ware. Use a multi-purpose sponge with strong fiber for particularly stubborn stains. You’ll effectively eliminate mold from the walls.

4. …and pay attention to the toilet

For deep toilet sanitation, in addition to the right products, it’s necessary to scrub well, both inside and around the edges. After putting on gloves, take a sponge (those with silver ions are the most sanitizing!) and start scrubbing, insisting on the inner rim, where bacteria accumulate the most. Don’t forget to scrub the toilet seat well, then use a cellulose cloth to dry.

5. It’s time for the glass!

Never forget the mirror and shower doors, where limescale streaks are most noticeable. Arm yourself with a good cloth specifically designed for glass. Why? Because the sponge is extremely important to avoid unsightly streaks. We’ve thought of everything: our multi-purpose glass cloth offers a soft side for removing stains even without detergents, while the latex side is perfect for polishing surfaces. Seeing is believing!

6. Clean the floor

Cleaning the floor is the last step, but not the least important. After sweeping to remove dust and hair residues, immerse the Martini Spa floor cloth in hot water and eco-friendly detergent. Then rinse thoroughly with plenty of water to eliminate any residue.

7. And what about cleaning the bathroom with steam?

When discussing tools for cleaning the bathroom, we mentioned the steam cleaner. Why? Steam is a method that fully replaces any detergent, even the most degreasing ones. Thanks to the steam, you’ll quickly eliminate germs, bacteria, mold, accumulated dirt, and bad odors. After using the steam, dry with our multi-purpose cloth and then go over the floor with the floor cloth. You’ll see great results!

How often should you clean the bathroom?

We’ve discussed how to do it, but… how often should you clean the bathroom? The answer mainly depends on how we use it and the number of people in the house.

Generally, it’s good to dedicate yourself to deep cleaning of sanitary ware and the shower at least once a week. As for the toilet, bidet, and sink, it’s advisable to do it every day.

It’s always good to clean the bathroom walls every week using the most suitable products.

The situation is different for textiles. The shower curtain should be washed at least once a month, while towels should be washed every three or four days. The shower mat should be washed with a disinfectant cycle every week.

How and when should the sponges I used to clean the bathroom be washed?

The bathroom sponges can be sanitized by quickly boiling them in the microwave after each use of the sponge.
To sanitize the sponges with the microwave, simply immerse the sponge in a container filled with water, after rinsing the sponge with water and detergent, and activate at maximum power to eliminate bacteria.
