Keeping your bathroom clean when it’s in constant use

Bathroom cleaning can be a tedious task, but it doesn’t have to end up looking like an overwhelming chore. We’ve gathered some quick and easy tips that will keep your bathroom clean and hygienic, irrespective of how busy your lifestyle is!

Tip 1: Disinfectant Wipes

For fast and seamless cleaning, make Dettol Disinfectant Multi-Use Wipes your closest ally in the bathroom. These bathroom cleaning wipes can be efficient while wiping down sinks, tiles, toilet seats, trash cans, bathtubs and the floor of your bathroom, and they kill 99.9% of bacteria if used as directed. They can tackle both germs as well as stains, which reduces the need for multiple cleaning tools. Store a pack of disposable disinfectant wipes in your bathroom for a fast and simple cleaning. Wiping down areas that are exposed to dirt and grime occasionally would hardly take any time of yours and in return it will save you a lot of time when you go for deep bathroom cleaning.

Tip 2: Tackle the toilet

If you leave the toilet lid up while flushing, you end up spreading germs all over the bathroom (even on your toothbrush), so ensure that you shut the lid before you flush. Clean your toilet bowl once a week with the help of a toilet cleaner and a toilet brush and then wipe down the toilet seat, flush handle and lid with disposable wipes – just dump them in the trash later.

Tip 3: Shower and bath

It’s a smart move to keep the window open, keep the fan running and close the bathroom door when using the bath or taking a shower. This will help in stopping the build-up of mold and mildew. Otherwise, Dettol Antiseptic Liquid can help in getting rid of mold and mildew quickly, leaving your bathroom looking sparkling clean. Once you finish your shower or bath, take some time and wipe down surfaces such as the shower door, bathtub and tiles. Ask your family members to do the same and it will help in reducing the build of mold and lime scale, reducing your cleaning time in the long run.

Tip 4: Little and often

Cleaning your bathroom little and regularly when you have few minutes to spare can save a lot of your time and effort in the long run. Always store a pack of disposable disinfectant wipes below the bathroom sink so you can wipe up any water marks, toothpaste, or other spills before they dry up and become adamant. Also, ask the men in the family to cultivate the habit of wiping down the toilet seat after using so it remains clean for the next person.

Tip 5: Don’t forget your towels

Bathroom essentials like towels, shower curtains and bath mats are the perfect breeding ground for germs, so make sure that you clean them too. If possible, wash your towels and bath mat once a week in hot water (at least 60 degrees) with laundry sanitizer, which helps in getting rid of odor-causing bacteria. Always dry your towels by hanging them once you’ve finished using them. If someone has accidentally dropped towels on the floor, then it’s probably a good idea to put them in the wash.

Tip 6: Multi Task

Cleaning your bathroom little and often will help save a lot of time when it comes to deep cleaning your bathroom, but that doesn’t mean you should skip it all together. Fortunately, there are many ways to make your bathroom cleaning more efficient. Begin with putting your toilet cleaner in the toilet bowl and work on other areas while you wait for it to start its magic. Clean from top to bottom, starting from the walls and tiles, to cleaning the floor last.  Only wash your sink at the end of your deep bathroom cleaning in case you have to wash or rinse any clothes as you go.

So there it is, hopefully by inculcating these tips into your bathroom cleaning routine, you will save on time and maintain a clean bathroom for longer duration.
