Cleaning Your Bathroom Safely

Cleaning Your Bathroom Safely-onyx33-224x300Keeping your bathroom clean with a consistent effort is the best way to keep your remodeled bathroom looking its best.  It’s important to remember that safe use of cleaning products at home is something that you should always keep in mind.  See our list of recommended cleaning products and instructions for your bathroom here.

In the spirit of National Poison Prevention Week March 15-21, remember to always follow these guidelines:

Natural Products Can Still Be Toxic. Natural cleaning products should be used with the same caution as commercial products.  Always use gloves and be sure to keep your cleaning area ventilated.  These precautions are important to take when using any cleaning substance.

Use Mild Products Whenever Possible. Most cleaning can be accomplished using mild products such as vinegar and baking soda.  Only use ammonia and bleach when absolutely necessary.

Always Read The Label. This may sound like a no brainer, but, you should always read the product label and pay attention to words such as “caution,” or “dangerous.”

Some Mixtures Can Be Dangerous.  You should NEVER mix ammonia and bleach together.  This mixture produces toxic gasses.

Childproof Your Cleaning Products.  Be sure to keep all of your cleaning products out of reach for both children and pets.  Even something as simple as a full bucket of water left unattended can be a drowning danger.

Label Homemade Products.  It is always best to keep cleaning products in their original containers.  If you have mixed homemade products, be sure to label them accurately, and always used new, clean, containers for storing homemade products.

Wash Your Hands After Cleaning.  Always be sure to wash your hands after handling and using any cleaning products.

Spring Organization For The Bathroom

Spring Organization For The Bathroom-DSC_0561-300x198Cleaning the bathroom isn’t just about scrubbing surfaces. Take some time for spring organization to eliminate clutter and ensure that everything has a place to be safely and properly stored. Get your bathroom organized with these helpful tips:

Medicine Cabinet

The medicine cabinet is one of those spots that is often overlooked during cleaning. Go through and discard old or expired medications and other products. Wipe the shelves clean with a damp cloth. Restock items that are running low so that you’ll have them handy when needed, like a new tube of toothpaste and dental floss. Make a note of any basic medications that you want to replace.

Shower/Tub Storage

If you’re sick of shampoo bottles, soaps, and kid’s toys taking over the rim of the tub, it’s time to invest in an organizer. There are different styles and sizes to choose from, which will help free up space in the tub or shower and keep everything nice and neat.

Linen Closet

Tackle disorganized towels once and for all. Start by taking everything out of the linen closet and going through all of the items. Wipe down the shelves to remove dust. See what old towels and washcloths you can get rid of and replace, and then fold everything neatly and place them back on the shelves. Maximize the space in the closet by using plastic bins for bulkier items on the floor, and smaller plastic bins for loose items on upper shelves.

Countertops

Cluttered countertops can make the whole room look messy, and they make it more difficult to thoroughly clean the surface on a regular basis. Get rid of the clutter by organizing and storing items in the medicine cabinet or the vanity. Use a holder to corral toothbrushes, and get a refillable soap dispenser for hand soap.

Vanity Drawers and Cabinets

If you have a vanity with drawers, take some time to go through them and discard old, unused items. Purchase organizers to separate and store smaller items, such as hair accessories and cosmetics. Get rid of old bath products that are just collecting dust.

You may be surprised at how many unused and old items your bathroom is housing. Spring organization will give the room a fresh, clean feeling.

Spring Cleaning In The Bathroom

Spring Cleaning In The Bathroom-cleaningAs you start planning your spring cleaning strategy around the home, be sure to take a little extra time in the bathroom. With so much moisture, this is one area that will truly benefit from a deep cleaning. Here are some helpful tips on how to get it done right:

Start with a Blank Slate

Begin by taking everything out of the bathroom that you can. This includes shampoo bottles, soaps, toothbrushes, rugs, bath mats, and anything that sits on the shelves and counter tops. Having a blank slate to work with will make it easier to spray down all of the surfaces so that you can give them a good scrub.

Dust and Spray

Take a duster or damp cloth and dust all of the surfaces that probably get overlooked during weekly cleanings, like windowsills, the top of the medicine cabinet, and shelves. Next, use a multi purpose surface cleaner and spray the counter. Wipe it clean with a damp cloth, and move on to the sink.

Spray down the bathtub and shower stall with a product that is designed to remove soap scum and mildew. You may need to do a little scrubbing at this point to get the tiles and tub looking sparkling clean. Don’t forget the faucets and the mirror, which can be wiped down with a basic glass cleaner.

Next, move on to the toilet. Use the toilet bowl scrubber to remove any stains inside of the bowl, and be sure to clean under the rim. Use a clean rag to wipe down the outside of the toilet, all the way behind it and down to the floor.

Finally, you will want to clean the floors. The bathroom typically has tile floors, making it easy to do a quick mop. Get in all of the corners and behind the toilet. Once the floors are dry, then you can replace the rugs with a clean set.

Take some time to clean off the small items before putting them back, such as the toothbrush holder and soap dispenser. Once everything is cleaned and organized, your bathroom should look and smell great.

What to Consider When You Remodel

By | Bathroom Remodeling, Bathroom Remodeling Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

When considering a bathroom remodel, there are a number of things to think about.  Included among the considerations is whether the remodel will transform the space into a space dedicated to luxury or simply increase the functionality and aesthetics of the room.

Other considerations will involve evaluating how the space is currently used — is it a retreat that will provide solace after a long day of work?  We at Luxury Bath will listen to your vision and assist in transforming it into a space that is visually appealing and functional in a way that fits your life best.  We help you decide what features you need while considering your budget and what you can afford.

While in the initial stages of determining how you would like to improve your existing space, we will work with you to consider the essentials of the space.  Important factors will largely depend on the bathroom that will be remodeled; for example, whether it is the powder room, a child’s bathroom or the master bath.  Each of these bathrooms require their own unique considerations when balancing form and function with your remodel.

We’re proud to serve the Columbus, Ohio area and help make the remodeling experience fun, easy, and customized to your needs!  Contact us today to get started.
