Spring cleaning your bathroom does not have to be overwhelming. Unfortunately, many of the products used to remove dirt, dust, and even mold from bathroom surfaces can be hazardous to your health. For example, bleach may be effective for removing stains and killing mold and bacteria, but it can also irritate your skin, eyes, and respiratory system. If bleach is combined with other cleaning products, it can be life-threatening. To get started, consider using one or more of these eco-friendly solutions to clean your tile and grout.
If you have any interest in natural cleaning, vinegar should be a staple in your household. The acidic properties of vinegar are capable of eating through stubborn debris, but in a gentle way. In addition, vinegar contains antibacterial and antiviral agents, which kill bacteria. Therefore, it is an essential product for cleaning a bathroom.
In a spray bottle, combine 2 cups of white vinegar with 1 cup of water. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients evenly. After sweeping away loose particles from the floor using a broom, spray a generous amount of the vinegar solution onto the tile. After a few minutes of soaking the tile, use a wet mop to clean the entire tile floor. Repeat the process of spraying vinegar and mopping until your tile is clean and shiny
Baking Soda Paste
Cleaning the grout between your bathroom tile may seem impossible, especially if it is white or cream in color. However, you do not need to use toxic bleach to remove grout stains.
Create a paste using baking soda and water and apply it to the grout for an efficient and eco-friendly stain remover. Mix 2 cups of baking soda with 1 cup of water in a bucket. If it is runny, add more baking soda. If too powdery, add water until it has a paste-like quality.
Apply the paste to your grout lines using your hands or a washcloth. Allow the paste to sit and soak into the grout for a few minutes. Then, wipe out each grout line using a damp cloth.
The baking soda will absorb dirt and debris, removing any discoloration while brightening the white or cream color of your grout.
A deep cleaning of your bathroom this spring season does not have to harm the environment or your health.
