9 Places You May Miss Cleaning in the Bathroom

by Tammy Emineth on Apr 2, 2019

We can all agree that keeping the bathroom clean is very important. This is a room that is used often and can get really yucky pretty fast. But there are some places in the bathroom that often get ignored that should receive attention. Read on to find out what they are.

Showerhead

Mineral deposits and even a pink hue of mildew can build up in the little jets of the showerhead. What is even yuckier to think about is that you are bathing in that gunk every time you turn the shower on. Clean up the grime in your shower head with a 50/50 solution of white distilled vinegar and water. You can either fill a plastic bag with the vinegar solution, place the bag over the shower head so that it is submerged in the solution, and hold in place with a rubber band overnight; or you can generously spray down each jet with vinegar let it sit for a few minutes and scrub each jet with a dry clean cloth.

Base of Toilet

When cleaning the toilet it is common to focus on the bowl of course and then other areas that are noticed most like the seat and the tank, if it is covered in dust. The underside of the bowl, the base near the floor, and even the plumbing behind the bowl that attaches to the wall often get left uncleaned. Make sure to reach these areas every time you clean the rest of the commode.

Light Fixtures

Light fixtures don’t usually receive as much attention as some other more germ filled areas of the bathroom, but they do fill up with dust. Use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe down the lights while they are off and cooled down.

All of the Drains

You may give the tub and sink drains some attention with a quick surface clean, but there is a lot of gunk that builds up just inside the drain. About once a month pull the drain cover and give it a good cleaning as well as a once over with a soft bristle brush of the inside of the drain. This will help to prevent clogged drains that need to be snaked out later.

Vents and Fans

Dirty fans and vents mean dirty air and more dust deposited back on the surfaces of the bathroom. Clean the exhaust fan that you turn on when you take a shower by removing the cover and vacuuming inside. If you can’t remove the cover spray a dusting wand with a 50/50 vinegar and water solution and a couple of drops of tea tree oil and get in between the crevices of the cover. Don’t forget about vacuuming out those heating vents.

Inside the Faucet

Just like the shower head, things build up in the faucet; especially if you have hard water. Take some time once in a while to disassemble the sink nozzle and clean the aerator and other pieces inside the faucet. Take a small stiff bristle brush dipped in vinegar and clean the inside of the faucet.

Inside the Drawers

Bathroom drawers are often full of many products so we don’t take the time to pull everything out and wipe them down. With time, these drawers fill up with hair, spilled makeup, dust, and other products. Take the time to empty out the drawers and wipe them down then re-organize them. Make this task much quicker by lining your drawers with a cloth that can be put in the laundry and replaced once clean as well as using organizers in your drawers.

Professional Grout Cleaning

To some, professional grout cleaning seems unnecessary if you are cleaning grout and tile on a regular basis. It is important to have a yearly cleaning to get deep into the pores of the grout and to reapply that sealant that makes cleaning so much more pleasant.
