Bathrooms often look like heaven when you see them in magazines or interior design blogs online. However, in real life, they are more likely to be hellish, especially when you are the one tasked with keeping clean and organised! Happily, there is help at hand, and it’s in the post below, so read on to find out why you always lose the battle to keep your bathroom clean and what you can do to change this.
You need more storage
Storage is one weapon that you can add to your arsenal when it comes to keeping your bathroom clean. They key thing here is that if there is a place for all the shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, and sprays it is way more simple to keep the surface clear. Then once the surfaces are clear, it is much easier to give them a quick wipe over and this helps to cut down on the work involved in keeping them clean.
Sadly, bathroom storage can often be inordinately expensive, although there are some cheaper DIY hacks that you can find out more about in the video below.
You are not dealing with hard water
Hard water is one of the most significant problems to overcome if you are trying to keep your bathroom looking as clean as possible. The reason that it is so problematic is that it encourages the formation of limescale which makes your loo, bathroom sink, and taps look dirty, no matter how much you clean and polish them.
Happily, there is something that you can do about this problem and its to install a water softener in the bathroom. This is a device that reduces the mineral content of the water that you use and so, in turn, will prevent such a bad build up on your bathroom fixtures and fittings. Something that will ensure they look as clean and shiny as possible, for as long as possible and help you win the war against bathroom mess!
You are not organised enough
No judgment here! Sometimes just being organised enough to get everyone to school on time is achievement enough for one day. However, there is something to be said for reviewing your bathroom organization if you want it to be a cleaner space.
Primarily this organization relates to how often and what you clean. In fact, if you set up a cleaning schedule that includes doing one major job every few days like cleaning the bath, or mopping the floor, you have a much better chance of keeping your bathroom the way you would like it to be.
Of course, it can’t hurt to make the rest of the bathroom users aware of this schedule either, as well as what they can do to help or at least minimise the hard work involved. That means getting the guys to rinse the sink out after cutting their beards and getting the girls to clean the shower after use. After all, prevention is always better than cure, especially when it comes to winning the war on bathroom dirt!
