Cleanliness is much more important and necessary in the bathroom than in any other room in the house, because it is the place where personal hygiene takes place.
Baking soda, chalk powder, vinegar or lemon, among many other natural products, are effective cleaners and disinfectants. They eliminate the need for chemicals and abrasives that can damage tile and bathroom fixtures. Toilets, faucets and drains could also be damaged if not cleaned properly.
Sinks easily accumulate soap and toothpaste residue and hair can get trapped in the sinks drain. It should be cleaned regularly so the scum doesn’t become permanent and to prevent odors. Mirrors, the inseparable companions of sinks, must be always be clean and shiny.
Toilets get dirty continuously and it is important to keep them clean and disinfected to assure proper hygiene. Bleach should never be used in its disinfection since prolonged use can cause cracks in the toilet’s porcelain. It is advisable to clean it frequently with a toilet brush and use only natural products.
