Good Clean Fun Friday No. 2



Bathroom Ceramic Tile Cleaning
Happy Friday Lovelies,

     Keeping ceramic tile in the bathroom clean is one of those fairly tough cleaning jobs I have to do, not daily, thank goodness, but once a week.  Whether you have a shower stall, bathtub, or bathroom walls that are designed with ceramic tile to bring beauty, loveliness, and charm to your bathroom they do need to be cared for.  One of the main things to keep in mind if you are planning to use a commercial cleaner is to always use excess caution because some of these cleaners may be harmful to the skin.  So always use precaution and wear rubber gloves.  

     Soap, shampoos, body wash, and other personal care products get on the bathroom walls, tub, shower curtain and shower doors.  It is not nice to have this little problem, but often times we are faced with it.  Soap scum develops over time building a thin film which attacks more dirt and scum that contribute to the development of mildew and mold.  Now, we all know we don’t want the problem to go this far.  It was advice  by my mother and grandmothers that in order to keep a bathroom looking attractive we must wipe the walls of the shower or bath tub with a towel that is designed specifically for this use to remove body oils and soapy residue, but we all ready know this.

     Now, a weekly cleaning with your favorite bathroom cleaner is a great way to avoid preventing a mildew or mold problem from developing.  Of course, maybe twice or three times a year thoroughly deep cleaning will avoid having this problem all together.   Anyway, here is a solution I use whenever I don’t have my favorite bathroom cleaner Scrubbing Bubbles at hand. .  Or if you are like me, and want to tackle the problem in a traditional way here is the solution I use.

Chlorine Bleach and Water Solution

Two parts of water to one part bleach or you may prefer mixing half and half.  Keeping in mind to always wear rubber gloves and rinse the solution thoroughly.

This solution will not harm your bathroom tiles or tub, and it effectively removes mold and mildew so that your bathroom is always looking gorgeous.  So there you have it! Simple ways of keeping your bathroom tiles looking very attractive.



Enjoy your weekend,
Jacqueline
