Tackle that bathroom!

Another unpopular room for cleaning is the bathroom…

If it’s been a while since your bathroom had a good clean, then try something like ‘vamoose’ which is a foaming spray that lifts dirt (available locally from Lakeland Plastics). Tiles and grout can be freshened up with a mix of 3 x cups of bicarbonate of soda, a few drops of lemon juice and 1/4 cup white vinegar. Apply the mixture, leave for 15 mins and remove with a damp cloth until it’s all gone.

Add a few drops of white vinegar to your bucket when mopping floors to remove soap traces. If the floor is lino or vinyl tiling, add a coupe of drops of baby oil to the mop water to give a soft shine to your floor – use sparingly, or you’ll turn the floor into a skating rink!
