I realize what a luxury it is to have three bathrooms, truly I do, but that doesn’t change the fact that I hate to clean them. Especially the main bathroom which for 25 years was the kids’ domain. Once they both moved out, we did a general upgrade on the bathroom and replaced the old vinyl flooring with a beautiful bathroom tile. We reasoned that now that they were gone, the issues they created went with them, so our new tile floor was safe.
Then they moved home one by one. They stayed for nearly two years and then they were gone again. Unfortunately, though they were both now adults, their aim had not really improved and they left behind a reminder of their stay with stained and dirty tile grout around the toiled – something the mom of boys can relate to. I’ve tried several different cleaners to fix the problem, but nothing worked so I’d resigned myself to the stains.
Scrubbing Bubbles Helps Achieve the Complete Clean
I decided recently to give cleaning the stained grout and tiles one more try and this time I used Scrubbing Bubbles®. Yes, the same Scrubbing Bubbles® I used as a teen to clean my parents’ house. That’s 40 years of experience in the cleaning business and I have to say, it still works beautifully. Not only did it tackle the stains on the grout, but it killed 99.9% of the viruses and bacteria on every surface I cleaned and with flu season hitting the US hard, this is especially important now.
Scrubbing Bubbles® takes care of soap scum and dirt on bathroom surfaces like tubs, sinks, and showers, giving it a complete clean.
Your Bathroom May Be Dirtier Than You Think!
By the way, did you know that you can reduce the amount of bacteria in your bathroom? You can! Simply CLOSE the toilet lid when flushing. Leaving it open sprays a fine layer of germs and bacteria on every surface surrounding it. Yuck! And according to the Scrubbing Bubbles Dirty Work Index survey that was conducted in 2014, over 60% of us leave the lid up; that’s a habit we’ve got to stop! Plus, they found that 41% of men admit to urinating in the shower – ewww……so scrub it often! And always, always, wash your hands after using the bathroom as well as cleaning it.
The Best Way to Clean a Bathroom
Start from the top and work your way down – spray every surface and start with the mirror, then the counter tops and sink wiping everything to the floor, then clean the floor. Same for the toilet and tub – walls first then tub, floor last. That way you never have to re-wipe a surface – clean your sponge or cloth often and use a dry cloth to buff out a shine.
That’s it! Now I have a clean bathroom with no sign of the kids left behind.
