The bathroom is likely one of the rooms in the house you clean the most, what with it's frequent and regular use. The fact that it is also exposed to more vapour than any other room also means it's important to keep your bathroom clean.
But bathrooms with their large tiles surfaces can be tricky to clean; follow our top tips to ensure you are removing dirt from both the grout and the tiles.
How often should I clean my bathroom tiles?
Unfortunately there is no one size fits all answer for this question, as it depends on lots of different factors, including:
- Whether you shower or bathe
- How often your bathroom is used
One of the classic methods of cleaning your bathroom tiles is using vinegar. Mixing white or cleaning vinegar together with water will create your own cleaning spray which can be used to get rid of most grime on your tiles.
Use equal parts vinegar and water, then just dab with a cloth onto the tiles. We recommend cleaning your wall tiles before you do your floor, so you don't end up splashing your newly cleaned floor when doing the walls.
You could also use lemon juice which will give a similar effect due to its acidity - this will break down dirt without harming tiles. Choose from a dampened sponge or spray it directly onto the tiles. Make sure you remember to wipe them well afterwards so you don't have a lemon-scented bathroom.
You could also choose an off the shelf cleaning spray, but we think the basics work just as well.
For very dirty tiles baking soda can be used as a bathroom cleaner too. Half a cup of baking soda, a quarter cup of hydrogen peroxide and a teaspoon of washing up liquid is sure to make your tiles sparkle.
