Bathroom Maintanance

Clean the bath tub and/or shower

  • Spray with cleaner and scrub the walls and the basin in a circular motion from top to bottom. Spray the entire area with plain water to rinse off the cleaner, and wipe it down again with a damp cloth.

Clean the mirror

  • Wet a cloth with glass cleaner or dip it in dishwashing liquid and water.

Scrub the sink

  • Wipe the sink and the vanity top with a damp cloth and dishwashing liquid or cleaner. Rinse completely and go over the area a second time. Scrub the drain with a toothbrush and scrape build-up from the joints between the sink and the counter with the edge of an old credit card.

Disinfect the toilet

  • Scrub both the inside and the outside. Brush stains away with a toilet brush.

Clean the tiles

  • Using a sponge and cleaner (liquid soap) diluted in water. Dry with a clean cloth/old towel.

Mop the floor

  • Using a sponge and cleaner diluted in water, and starting from the farthest corner of the room, work toward the door, going left to right. Dip the mop into the bucket of cleaner, wring it out, and push it over a manageable section of the floor. Then dip the mop into a pail of clean water, wring it out, and mop the section again.

Clean the waste bin

  • Spray both the inside and the outside of the wastebasket with all-purpose cleaner, and wipe it down with a cloth.

Wipe down the shower rods and attachments

  • Use a cloth dampened with water and dishwashing liquid. Dust can build up, preventing the rings from moving smoothly.

Clean the medicine cabinet

  • Empty the contents, placing them in the sink, then mist the walls and the shelves with cleaner and wipe with a cloth. Scrub any dirty areas with a toothbrush.

Clean the cabinets

  • Lightly dampen a cloth with water and cleaner, and work in the direction of the grain, from top to bottom. Rinse and repeat. Polish the knobs.

Wipe the taps and fixtures

  • Use a wet cloth with cleaner. Dry with a clean cloth.

Clean the air vents

  • Dust or vacuum with a brush attachment.


  • Never use bleach (exeption: inside toilet pan if necessary). Bleach can spoil the silicone sealant (making it porous causing leaks) and may discolour taps, baths and trays.
  • Avoid one shot drain cleaners/dambusters – remove hair regularly and rinse once a week drains with boiling water to avoid blockages.
  • Make sure that there is plenty of air circulation to avoid build up of mould. 
  • We recommend to replace silicone sealant every two to three years in wet areas.
