Dirty shower curtains? Off to the washing machine

Most people will admit to trying to clean shower curtains by hand.  But soap scum is a nightmare and not a good use of time. But, did you know it’s possible to clean your shower curtains in the washing machine? Just pop in a few towels to stabilise the load.  Select a cold wash, and use detergent as usual.  Drip dry and we guarantee, you’ll be impressed with the result.

Mildew?  Bleach to the rescue

Mildew is a huge complaint when it comes to bathrooms.  It’s nasty to clean and time-intensive. But there’s an easier way: prepare a bleach solution (the concentration of which depends on how much mildew there is), grab a pair of rubber gloves then wash the tiles, ceiling, floor and anywhere else you spot mildew. Repeat a few times until it’s gone. 

Everything else: wax it

There’s nothing more disheartening than having to scrub away watermarks, soap scum and the likes. But there’s an easy way: simply wax it. Apply a waterproof wax to the tiles, glass shower door, mirror and even steel or chrome taps and showerheads.  It makes a huge difference and, happily, no more water and soap streaks means you can easily clean up the bathroom without wasting time on those darned stains.
