Things in Your Bathroom That Get Overlooked When Cleaning

Cleaning the bathroom isn’t anyone’s favorite past time, but it is something that is a part of life and that must be done. Having a clean bathroom not only makes your time in there more pleasant, but it also adds to the overall quality of the feel of your home. Unfortunately, there are certain parts of the bathroom that frequently get overlooked during cleaning. Oftentimes, what we consider clean is not as clean as we think.

Below are some things inside your bathroom that you need to be sure to include in your cleaning regimen:

  • Showerheads – Because it is located above our heads, we often overlook cleaning this part of the bathroom. Showerheads are prone to developing mold due to their consistent moisture, so it is important to remove it (if possible) and clean it to remove grime and buildup.
  • Shower curtains – The bottom part of our shower curtains are usually neglected, but they are also where mold buildup is most likely to occur because they are in contact with the shower or bathtub.
  • Medicine cabinets – The inside of your medicine cabinet can collect dust and dirt over time even if you keep it closed. You also want to be sure to check it regularly to ensure no product containers have developed leaks.
  • Toothbrush holders – Your toothbrush is in your mouth multiple times a day, so it is important to make sure it stays clean. Cleaning your toothbrush holders will ensure that your toothbrushes stay clean and away from potential dirt, mold, and germs.
  • Faucet handles – Every dirty hand that passes through the bathroom touches the faucet handle. Needless to say, that area has a lot of germs. Disinfect it with soap and water to ensure that everyone stays safe and truly sanitary.
  • The outside of your toilet – Cleaning the toilet is one of the first things most people do, but they tend to focus on the inside only. It is also very important to clean the outside of your toilet as well because that is where a lot of dirt and grime buildup occurs.
  • Bathroom walls – Have you ever cleaned your walls? If not, you should do so! Walls are prone to moisture and mold, which is not only unsightly, but also unsafe. Scrub your walls once a month to ensure that they do not harbor germs or moisture..
  • Your bathmats – Clean them every time you clean the rest of your bathroom. They collect dirt and moisture every day, and it is important to refresh them so they do not become sources of mold and germs.
