Cleaning bathroom


Hello everyone !
I need some advise to keep my bathroom clean with less effort. Please see the photo. Its not very dirty but what kind of cleaners I should use it frequently/periodically and quickly with less effort in every use ?

Now a days, I typically clean monthly once but I spend at least 30 minutes and I want to reduce that time drastically.

Thoughts ?

Re: Cleaning bathroom


Gel - Scrub using a sponge mop of your choice and with the handle cut off at a comfortable length for you. You can reduce the time by moving your hands/arms 2X as fast as you were.

Re: Cleaning bathroom


You clean this bathroom once a month spending 30 minutes doing it? Yikes!

How about adding an extra 5 minutes after each shower instead, then do the normal weekly cleaning every few weeks? If the walls were wiped dry after the last shower, you'd have better results. A grout sealer after a heavy duty cleaning would help too.

However.....it looks to me as you have mold growing at the bottom. This is certainly cuz the tilework was done all wrong using wallboard and probably mastic instead of a tile backer and thinset from a bag. The way to fix this is to rip it all out and have it done right.

Re: Cleaning bathroom


You can clean up the mold easily with this stuff, IMHO much better than bleach.



Then you could clean out the old caulk, kill the mold that was behind the caulk, and then re-caulk with a mold-resistant caulk. But that's a band-aid short-term fix. Jaz is right, the problem will come back because of the way the tile was installed.

Cleaning bathroom


Monthly cleaning won't do for bathrooms. Your cleaning time will be shorter if you clean frequently, at least weekly.

Your bathtub is dirty. A soft cloth won't get rid of the black areas. You need something more abrasive - powder cleanser. If you clean it properly once, you won't have to scrub hard in the future.

There's mildew between tub and wall, around soap holder, and on grout. You need a bleach-containing cleaner. Scrub the grout. As for the mildewed caulk, you can bleach and let it sit. Or, remove old caulk and replace.

Your shower curtain is very dirty - see bottom ends. Change and wash them in the washer every other week. With your current shower curtain however, you'll need to do a lot of soaking and scrubbing before they look clean. Shower curtains that are frequently and regularly cleaned are not hard to maintain - they can be tossed in the washer.
