The bathroom is that privileged space where we can relax, enjoying intimate moments without haste, but it is also the space where we take a record-breaking shower and put on our make-up in no time, especially when we’re late. Cleaning the bathroom is inevitably put off till later, however much we would love to have shining, smear-free surfaces.
So here are some secrets for cleaning the bathroom tiles in a natural, effort-free way.
Start from the shower!
The drips that remain when we’re in a hurry can leave stains and limescale smears.
To remove them, simply spray the shower cubicle with a 50-50 mixture of water and white vinegar, leave on for a few minutes and dry with a wiper blade and polish with a (preferably anti-static) cloth.
How to clean the tiles!
To clean the tiles, just add a few drops of washing-up liquid or Marseilles soap (the ‘greener’ the better) to the water-white vinegar mixture, mix and spray onto the tiles, rub with a non-abrasive sponge, rinse with warm water and dry with a dry cloth.
How to clean the grout between the tiles!
The grout between the tiles often causes the greatest grief, but keeping it clean is quite simple.
Equip yourself with a toothbrush, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Wet the powder with a few drops, dip in the toothbrush and rub along the grout between the tiles. With a little elbow grease, it’ll be good as new.
Another unbeatable tool for cleaning the bathroom is steam.
If you have a steam appliance, go over the surface and the grouting with a steam jet before traditional cleaning, and you will be assured an impeccable result and a deep-down sanitising action.
As ceramics are ecological - of natural origin and completely recyclable - we prefer natural remedies that are compatible with the environment; however, using chemical detergents or aggressive products will not alter or stain the ceramics, and their beauty will remain intact over time.
Ceramics are also non-allergenic, hygienic and resistant, safe and versatile, and so virtuous that it will be a pleasure to clean them!
They don't hold in the dirt or bacteria, they don’t give off substances, and this is why they are the ideal material for kitchen furnishings too… even where your children may be crawling!
