Cleaning your bathroom is a tedious chore, but it is something you need to do to safeguard your family’s health.
In the process, however, you are also putting yourself at risk by using cleaning materials that contain a cocktail of dangerous chemicals.
There are safer ways to clean your bathroom, and they can actually be more affordable compared to using familiar brands.
Here are four risk-free tips to keep your bathroom clean.
Shift to homemade natural cleaners
It may be time to stop relying on those store-bought cleaners and embrace natural cleaning solutions.
In most cases, you can rely on organic cleaners made from ingredients you can find at home! Vinegar, for instance, can be used to get rid of mold that usually rests in between the tiles. When mixed with baking soda or boiling hot water, it has the germ-killing effect of commercial cleaning products.
Ensure proper ventilation
You can cut down on the work of cleaning up your bathroom by providing adequate ventilation. That way, you can prevent the build up of moisture, which often leads to molding.
Open up a few windows or run a strong fan after you use the bathroom for showering. For best results, you can use a dehumidifier to deprive mold and mildew a suitable breeding ground.
Flush away a dirty toilet
You don’t have to rely on bleach-filled cleaners to clean a toilet bowl.
Pour down a mixture of baking powder and a half a cup of vinegar into a toilet bowl and allow it to sit there for about 30 minutes. Then, sprinkle some baking powder on your toilet brush and scrub away at remaining gunk or stains.
Clear your drains
Not taking care of your drains can lead to serious problems with the plumbing. Other than that, a dirty drain gives germs and bacteria a perfect spot to multiply. But while lye can dissolve most debris, it can also be harmful when inhaled.
A safer solution to this is unclogging your drain and, using a rag, clear out the remaining debris with a vinegar and baking soda solution. Let it sit for about 30 minutes before pouring hot water down. This helps clear out your bathroom drain with any of the harmful effects of lye.
