Cleaning tips that'll make your bathroom a wonderful place

There is no other room in the house that gets dirty faster than the bathroom. This is completely normal: this place is often humid, which makes it a perfect environment for bacteria and mold, but also limescale. With these 10 cleaning tips, make your bathroom (almost) as sterile as an operating theater in the blink of an eye.

Problem 1: Stains in the tub or shower
Tired of those tough stains in the tub or shower? Here is a method that works miracles.

Problem 2: Dirty tile joints
Make sure your bathroom is sufficiently ventilated and ventilated. This will prevent the accumulation of moisture. It is already too late ? So dilute bleach in water and restore your joints to their former cleanliness by rubbing with a toothbrush (preferably used ;).

Problem 3: A mirror covered in smudges
Solution: First rub the mirror with a halved apple. Then pat it dry with newspaper or paper towels. Even easier explains Anja: “Use clear water, a microfiber cloth and a squeegee. Because the more different products you use, the more you risk getting scratches. Did you write a love message on the mirror? You'll wipe it off easily with toothpaste.

Problem 4: A dirty shower head
Solution: Fill a plastic bag with water and vinegar. Attach it to the pommel with a rubber band and let it act for about thirty minutes. Then you just have to remove it, run a little water, and you're done!

Problem 5: A dirty toothbrush holder
Solution: Do not spend your energy unnecessarily, and simply put your toothbrush holder in the dishwasher.

Problem 6: A greasy shower curtain
Solution: Anja from Partena: “Those yellow edges underneath are really ugly, sometimes you even find mold there. Always allow the shower curtain to dry thoroughly. Hang it out of the tub, if possible, or wash it regularly. Simply put it in the washing machine and put it back to dry. No doubt, it couldn't be simpler! »

Problem 7: A dirty bathtub
Solution: What do you need? Water, salt, and a grapefruit. Spread salt all over the tub. Cut a grapefruit in half (an orange or a lemon will do just as well), and rub. We're willing to bet your tub has never been so fresh and fruity!

Problem 8: The shower drain is clogged
Everyone knows that long hair and a shower drain don't mix. Fortunately, there is an effective remedy.
Solution: Find a piece of wire, bend it into a hook shape, and fish for hair (and other clogs) in your drains! Anja, our cleaning lady at Partena: “I always work with gloves. I don't think I can do it with my bare hands (laughs). If you haven't cleaned it for a long time, you can get rid of the yellow edge with a limescale remover and a toothbrush. »

Problem 9: A rancid toilet
Regardless of your level of personal hygiene, sooner or later your toilet will become dirty. Unfortunately, you can't do anything about it. A good cleaning once in a while is the right solution, not a deep cleaning as follows. Here are the steps to follow.
Solution: A dash of bleach works wonders. Scrub vigorously with a toilet brush. Rinse, and that's it. Be sure to ventilate your bathroom well.

Problem 10: A Dirty Bath Mat
Are you clean as a whistle, and you have to put your feet on a filthy shower mat? Here too, no need to invent lukewarm water for it to be clean.
Solution: Just put it in the washing machine (30 degrees is enough) for an impeccable result.
