How to Clean Bathroom Tiles Properly

How often do we see tall bathroom tiles and think they could use a good scrubbing? Well, you don’t always have the time and the right ways to be able to get even there and perform a flawless cleaning of the bathroom. However, particularly in the shower, it is important to check the condition of the tiles because of the limescale that accumulates there. So, today we will see together a quick method to clean all bathroom tiles, even the hard-to-reach ones!

Before you start

When too much time elapses between tile cleanings, it always happens that dust takes over. For this reason, before you start with the thorough scrubbing, I recommend that you remove all the dust so that everything can be more effective! All you have to do is mount a dust-catching cloth on a broom, tie it with a rubber band, and turn the broom upside down. At this point, sweep it over the entire tiled wall of the bathroom so that it reaches even the highest areas. If you see that the cloth is particularly dirty, then I recommend that you also make a second pass. After this step, all that remains is to see the method for washing!

Let’s first see what the necessary necessities are for our trick:

  • 1 water pusher
  • 1 microfiber cloth (or any material that dries well)
  • 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon

This is all you will need to effectively clean bathroom tiles without the stress of having to climb up and down the ladder. The vinegar and lemon have the degreasing power needed to make them look like new again, plus the lemon juice will smell like never before! If you want a stronger scent, you can add a few drops of lemon or citrus essential oil!

Procedure:

First fill a basin with warm water and vinegar, then add the filtered juice of the lemon and essential oils (if you put them in). At this point, you will need to dip the cloth inside the solution and wring it out, leaving it quite damp. Wrap the cloth around the pusher and secure it firmly with a rubber band. Now all you have to do is turn the pusher upside down and start scrubbing all over the tiles, then wring out the cloth again, this time without leaving any drops of water, and make more passes until it dries. If you have tiles made of marble, you will have to use the same trick, but with different ingredients! Instead of dissolving vinegar and lemon in water, you will have to put 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 1 tablespoon of liquid or flaky organic soap. Always use the cloth wrapped and secured on the water pusher and proceed to thoroughly wash the tiles.

Warnings

It is important to try the remedies described above in an inconspicuous corner of the tiles to test their tolerability.
