It is very important to keep clean not only the bathroom itself, but also the furniture that is in it. Thanks to this, they will serve us for a long time. It is extremely important not to use cleaning products that could damage our bathroom furniture, so you must check all labels of cleaning agents that you intend to use, thus making sure that they are suitable for use in our interior.
If you want to feel completely safe, you should opt for organic products, ones that you can prepare yourself – a little vinegar or lemon juice in combination with the right amount of water can work wonders. It is also worth remembering to regularly clean the bathroom furniture. This will definitely help in the fight against wet conditions in the bathroom, minimize the risk of water damage to the furniture and allow you to keep the entire bathroom in perfect condition.
One of the best things you can do to keep your bathroom clean is to turn on the exhaust fan after a shower or bath. It’s best to turn it on for several minutes so that you can quickly remove water vapor from the bathroom. Most people, however, do not have an exhaust fan, so the simplest but equally effective solution is to leave the door open after completing the bath. Thanks to this, the room will maintain a constant air flow and a feeling of freshness.
In general, universal cleaning liquids for all kinds of surfaces will be most useful for cleaning the bathroom. This also applies to used cloths or brushes, it is worth choosing something relatively soft. Thanks to such accessories, it will be very easy to wash a smooth surface, for example, a countertop or a furniture front.
Rough components can cause scratches, making furniture susceptible to water damage.
When using funds purchased in the store, remember to leave the window or door open during cleaning. Thanks to this, all vapours will escape. Protective gloves are also important because some products are not suitable for skin contact.
Never mix vinegar with bleach!
Adding even a weak acid to the bleach produces toxic gases. This may cause chemical burns to the skin, face, eyes and respiratory system.
Regardless of the material from which the bathroom furniture is made, it is important not to use any bleach or any other abrasive product to clean them. General effects will be obtained by wiping the furniture with a damp cloth and then with a dry cloth to remove any streaks.
Cleaning methods for most materials are very similar, so for a better result and more thorough cleaning, you can dilute the antibacterial agent or white vinegar in water and wipe all surfaces, then wet a second cloth in clean water and wipe the furniture again, and finally wipe them dry. Always use extreme caution with bathroom furniture made of solid wood. Too much water is harmful to them, so the cloth should be drained well.
For furniture made of laminated or varnished MDF, water with vinegar or a delicate glass cleaner is best suited. Bleach and other such detergents are just as bad for MDF as for wood, so don’t use them.
Painted materials are more prone to scratches than others, so be careful when cleaning the cabinet, if it has been painted.
The interior of bathroom cabinets also requires regular cleaning, since many bottles and toiletries are often stored in this place. For each drawer or shelf, begin by thoroughly vacuuming it to get rid of dust or hair, etc. You can then clean them in the same way as external surfaces, but make sure the interior is dry before closing. The remaining moisture in the dark corner of the cabinet is an ideal breeding ground for mold, so it’s worth spending some time to wipe everything dry after cleaning.
