No matter how hard we scrub and bleach, the bathroom will always be a place where bad things happen. Many people feel that despite the many bathroom cleaners available, the bathroom is still the least hygienic part of the house. There are some brilliant ideas to make cleaning easier, more efficient and less toxic. Let’s look at a few.
1 Toothbrush Sanitiser
We don’t like to think about the fact that our toothbrushes are placed dangerously close to the toilet, which sends microorganisms into the air each time the toilet is flushed. You don’t have to worry as there is a new egg-shaped toothbrush cleaner that uses UV technology to kill 99% of germs.
2 Waterproof Blinds
You can now buy waterproof blinds that are designed for humid environments such as those found in bathrooms and kitchens. Bathrooms and other constantly moist, warm places can harbour mould and mildew. Why risk using material that may promote musty growth in these areas? Waterproof blinds that are easy to wipe down make them more hygienic. For Cheltenham Blinds, visit https://laskeys.com/blinds/blinds-cheltenham/
3 Hygienic Toilet Brush Holder
Have you ever been disgusted by the residue that collects in the bottom part of your toilet brush holder? Now you can buy a brush and holder set that has sanitising liquid in the base. It only takes a slight push on the brush to clean it. Phew!
4 Power Scrubber
Does elbow grease not work? Now, motorised scrubbers with waterproofing and scrub pads are available to make cleaning the bathroom a breeze! Battery-operated, it is safe to use even in moist environments. It works wonders for those hard to reach spots like tiling or grouting.
5 Drain Protector
What a pain it is to have to remove clumps of slimy hairs from the plug! This mushroom-shaped plug protector has a clever, universal design that fits most standard plugs and traps hairs without interfering with water flow. The hairballs are gone and it’s very easy to clean!
6 Air Purifiers
Are you concerned about the statistics that show how many airborne particles fly out of your bathroom when you flush? Hanging bamboo charcoal purifiers and deodorisers can be used in the bathroom. Charcoal absorbs moisture and bad odours. It also makes the room smell nicer. Combining charcoal with bamboo will also help to prevent the growth of mould and mildew, making your bathroom more sanitary.
7 Shower Curtain
Shower curtains are available with coatings that protect against mould and mildew, which love damp conditions. These shower curtains are eco-friendly, antibacterial, and do not have the plasticky smell that most shower curtain products possess.
