My Story: Bathroom Cleaning Tips
Cleaning Fiberglass Showers
Two Dozen Uses for Baking Soda
If you are anything like me, you are a working parent, with little time and money to spare. Between work, cleaning, running errands, and taking children to and fro, you barely have time to breathe, much less, spend any quality time with your family. I would like to share some tried-and-true methods to clean your bath using less time, effort and money. Not only will you appreciate the time and money you have saved, but you will also enjoy the "spring clean" freshness in your bath all year around.
This should only take around 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. It saves time and money, as you will have to clean less often, using fewer cleansers afterward to maintain the shine. The lemon oil polish should last 4 to 6 weeks depending on bath usage. Before implementing this system, my personal cleaning time was always 1 to 1½ hours each week. With a quick 10-minute swish of the room, you should be able to maintain the cleanliness with little time or effort. After approximately 4 weeks, reapply the lemon oil to maintain the newly cleaned luster. Keep all cleansers that are used for the bath, in your bathroom. I keep all my cleaning products in my mop bucket on the top shelf in my linen closet, to keep the products out of the reach of children. This allows easy access to the cleansers for quick bath touch-ups.
Please remember to never mix products that contain ammonia with bleach or products containing bleach, as they will produce toxic fumes. Happy cleaning!
