If 2020 taught us anything, it’s how to keep a clean home. Of course, this is one responsibility that few homeowners enjoy—especially when it comes to the bathroom—but there are ways to cheat the system without sacrificing quality. If you’ve recently invested in a new bathtub or shower from Tundraland, then you’ve already taken a step in the right direction! While these systems are designed to impede mold and mildew growth, you’ll still want to give them a good clean every once and a while to keep them looking new. When that time comes, follow these tips:
1. Gather Up Your Cleaning Equipment
For sanitation purposes, keep your bathroom cleaning equipment separate from your other household cleaners. Gentle disinfectants are the best options for thoroughly cleaning your entire bathroom, Tundraland products included. Look for the following brands:
- Glass Plus
- Scrub Free
- Non-Ammonia Windex
Avoid harsh cleaning brushes, scrubbing agents, and any leave-on cleansers. For a complete list of acceptable cleaning equipment, download our complete bathroom cleaning guidelines here.
2. Turn on Your Ceiling Ventilation Fan
Bathrooms are typically placed at the center of a home and designed for privacy. For these reasons, they’re usually void of operable windows. In these enclosed spaces, it’s not only important to run the ceiling ventilation fan during and after bathing/showering to help prevent mold, but it should also be run when you clean. The fumes from cleaning with strong chemicals and disinfectants can irritate your eyes and nose if trapped.
3. Remember: Less is Best!
For the best results, clean your bathing area with a soft cloth, sponge, and soft brush. Mineral deposits can be cleaned with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water (a natural cleaning solution that won’t strip your bathtub or shower). Whether you use this natural solution or chemicals, always thoroughly rinse your appliance with warm water after cleaning! Leftover cleaning chemicals can irritate your skin if contacted.
