Dry it out! Pull the shower curtain closed when not in use, so water can’t sit in the folds of the curtain. Spread towels over two hooks to dry, or hang them on rods instead. Wipe shower walls with a squeegee after every use.
To discourage mildew growth in the bathroom, increase the amount of air circulation. Use fans during the shower, and for about 30 minutes after, if possible
Grout. One of the most difficult items in a bathroom to clean, and usually there is a lot of it! Grout is porous and absorbs oils from shampoos, conditioners and soaps, which can lead to mildew growth. Clean grout with a mix of 10 parts water and 1 part bleach with a soft-bristled brush. It is important to remember to follow up with a pH-neutral cleaner to remove the bleach solution once completed.
Keep your vanity clutter-free. Create order and space in your cabinets by dedicating a spot for cosmetics and hair tools. Small baskets or bins are great for loose items and help keep things tidy. Your things will be stashed away, but will still remain within reach.
Our favorite tip is to keep things clean every day. Stash a canister of disinfecting cleaning wipes under the sink. This way, you can quickly clean up watermarks, small spills and toothpaste splatters without leaving them for later. A handheld vacuum works great for quickly cleaning up hair on the bathroom floor as well.
Upkeep in the bathroom means a little day-to-day maintenance as well as weekly cleanings. It’s crucial that, for reasons of hygiene and comfort, you stay on top of things.
