A Healthy Haven for your Bathroom
One of the worst chores you can get stuck with? Cleaning the bathroom. The disgusting little tidbits you’re bound to find down your drain or in your tub are enough to make you steer clear of bathroom duty. But, like anything else, the bathroom has to be cleaned. We would argue (because so much unpleasantness can happen in there) that the bathroom needs a little more tender loving care than other parts of your home.
If you’re like most of us and dread this odious task, luckily we have plant-based cleaners that pack a punch which can make cleaning the bathroom quick and easy. Here's how to get more mileage out of your efforts and make your least favorite chore an absolute breeze.
Reclaim your bathroom
Mould loves a bathroom. Warmth, moisture, humidity and a continual supply of organic matter and dirt – yep, you got yourself a mould party. And some of these gate-crashers bring health risks caused by allergens, irritants and toxins that can get into your respiratory system.
Keep your bathroom a healthy haven and as unwelcoming as possible for mould by lowering the humidity and temperature. Rinse your shower or bath with cold water after use, not warm, and ventilate for as long as possible leaving windows and doors open.
And don’t forget to leave that shower curtain pulled out to dry.
Queen of thrones
Despite being the most popular seat in the house, the toilet rarely gets the cleaning it deserves.
But since we find ourselves on the porcelain throne several times a day, it’s important that your toilet is as clean as possible.
Plant-based formulated toilet cleaners can help you eliminate stains, rings, and mineral deposits in your toilet. Squirt or dab cleaner on the inside of the rim of the bowl, allowing it to drip down the sides of the bowl and into the water. It's important to apply cleaner to the inside of the bowl's rim - this area is often ignored, which can lead to gross brown mineral buildup along the rim.
Clean shower scum
No one likes to shower staring at soap scum. Yuck.
Soap scum builds up, shower after shower and bath after bath. The longer the cleaning is delayed the more difficult soap scum is to remove. As time goes on, the minerals from the water make the soap scum set up almost like concrete.
Then there's the gross-out factor!
Soap scum is not just dirty soap, it's minerals from the water combined with dirt, body oils, sloughed off skin and bacteria.
Scrub that nastiness away by spraying bathroom cleaner onto the surface. This will bust through shower grime and leave your bathroom sparkling in no time.
Tiles, taps, sinks and bath toys are a magnet for limescale. But this is no place for eye-watering chemicals that take your breath away. A quick spray with Ecover Limescale Remover, leave for five minutes, rinse and stand back to admire. This household hero harnesses the power of plant and mineral based active ingredients. So all that’s left behind is a sparkle.
The smallest room in your home should always feel clean, fresh and healthy. From five minutes to 45 minutes it’s the most frequently used room in your home. Your bathroom is both a place of routine and relaxation. It can be a haven for me time or hectic kids bath time, but we like ours clean, fresh and free from strong smelling chemicals.
