Deep-Cleaning Your Bathroom the Right Way


According to University of Arizona’s professor Charles Gerba, your home plays host to millions of germs and bacteria every day, and germs love bathrooms. They provide adequate temperature and moisture for most bacteria to thrive in, which results in infections and infestations in family members..

Here are some tricks and tips for addressing the issue of germs in your household.

Shower Head

Pour an ample amount of white vinegar in a plastic bag and tie it up around the shower head. Leave it overnight for great results, and remove it in the morning. Be sure to run the shower for 30 seconds to rinse out any excess vinegar. This will not only clear away any soap scum, but will also get rid of any bacteria lurking inside.

Give your plastic shower curtains a good spin in your washing machine. Use your regular detergent for the purpose. Throw in a few old towels also, which will act as scrubbers to help get rid of soap scum and mildew.

Tile, Walls, Ceiling

Spray an all-purpose cleaner on your bathroom’s tiles, walls, and ceiling. Turn your showers on with hot water and let the steam build so that soap scum and dirt loosen up from the surface. Be sure to use caution to avoid getting burned by the hot water.   Let your shower run from 2 to 3 minutes for this purpose. Let the steam and surface cleaner work on your bathroom for about 20 minutes, and then wipe down your surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth. You can make use of a mop to reach high spots. At the end of your cleaning spree, wipe off the tile floor. In some cases, if the buildup is too heavy, you should consult a professional cleaning company to have your tiles cleaned.


Initiate your cleaning procedure by pouring a cup of baking soda into toilet bowl. Let it sit in for a few minutes and then brush thoroughly. Afterwards, flush the toilet. Your toilet may have stains from mineral deposits and lime scale, which can be removed using a damp pumice stone. Pumice stones should be abrasive enough to scratch the stains away, but gentle enough not to damage the surface.  Test using the pumice stone on a hidden part of the toilet first to be sure it does not damage the surface.
