Bathroom Cleaning Hints and Tips

How To Clean Tile Grout

Don’t let grubby grout spoil the look of your gorgeous tiles.

To clean up discoloured grout (caused by soap scum, mildew and other delights), arm yourself with an old toothbrush and a suitable cleaner and scrub over the grout lines.

There are plenty of proprietary cleaners on the market, or be green(ish) and make your own mixture of bicarbonate of soda and a splash of vinegar or bleach. Ideally, you need to find a product with mould inhibitors, as these will discourage mould or mildew from returning.

Always check manufacturer’s instructions first. Always try a test patch first. If you are unsure as to whether the item you are cleaning is suitable for our instructions, take professional cleaning advice first.

How To Clean Bath or Basin Sealant

Mouldy sealant is not a good look but there are ways to keep it fresh and clean.

Every day: A quick wipe over sealant with a cloth after a bath won’t take a minute and should stop mildew taking hold.

Combat mildew with one of the powerful mildew-tackling products on the market designed specifically for sealant. If the one you try doesn’t seem effective after the first go, try again – it may take several applications to beat the problem.

Stubborn mildew that simply won’t budge calls for radical action – your best bet is to remove the sealant altogether and re-seal, choosing a good-quality product.
