Do you do any of the following common bathroom cleaning mistakes? Many people do! Keep these in mind the next time you clean your bathroom.
Forgetting to Clean Behind the Toilet
You’ve got a lot on your mind, so it’s not surprising if you sometimes forget about cleaning behind the toilet. Because you can’t see back there, it’s easy to simply miss that area when cleaning, but it is important to take a few minutes to spray down and clean the back of the toilet and the area behind it in order to get rid of potentially harmful germs.
Wiping Surfaces as Soon as You Spray Them
When you want to get a job done efficiently, it’s easy to think the best way to clean surfaces is to spray them down with cleaner and then immediately wipe them down, but this is not the case. You should always allow your cleaner to sit on a surface for at least a few minutes before wiping it down, because this allows it to sink in and get rid of germs more effectively.
Mixing Cleaning Products
It might seem harmless to mix a few cleaning products together if you’re running low on cleaner and need more, but you should never do this. Different cleaners have different ingredients, and when you mix them together the chemical reaction of combining different types of cleaners can often produce harmful fumes that could leave people using your bathroom feeling lightheaded or nauseous.
Using Paper Towel
Not only are paper towels bad for the environment because of the waste involved in using them, they are also simply not that effective for cleaning. They don’t pick up dust and other debris if you use them dry and if you use them wet they can leave behind paper bits. Microfibre cloths are a much better choice for wiping down bathroom surfaces, plus they are machine washable and reusable, so you’ll save money and reduce your environmental footprint.
