Know How To Clean The Bathroom Floor? If Not Check This Out!

Hard water stains can make your bathroom floor look dull and uninviting. Check these knacks on how to clean your bathroom floor and make it a place to relax. Let’s start with a natural remedy.

  • Baking soda and vinegar: Mix these two ingredients up and spray it across your bathroom floor and wall tiles. Once you’re done with spraying all you have to do is give it a good scrub, wash it off with some water, and you can see that the stains have reduced.
  • Harpic and washing powder: Make sure you cover your bathroom floor and tiles around with Harpic and leave it to sit for about three to four hours. Add some washing powder to hot water and mix it well. Use a spray bottle to spray it on the tiles. Now cover the tiles again with a layer of Harpic. Get sandpaper and scrub off the stains and then use a Scotch Brite for a final scrub. After this wash everything off with warm water and dry it with a cloth. You are sure to see a major difference for the efforts you put in.
  • Chemical Cleaners: The most effective method but not so environmentally friendly is to use chemical tile cleaners available in hardware shops. These cleaners are highly effective and should be used only once in three months. You can spray the cleaner across your bathrooms and give a good scrub before you wash it off.

Pro Tip: Always use gloves while cleaning as there can be harsh chemicals involved in cleaning products.
