Bathroom Fixtures Made of Ceramics or Porcelain
A dirty bathroom is a sin. My mama taught me that and it’s always stuck with me. And like all of my cleaning I enjoy making and using my own solutions for the bathroom. So let’s get started!
We will be dealing with ceramics in this article. Because I still have all of my original bath items in my home and they’re all ceramic. So my go to solution mix for cleaning my tile including the tub and sink areas is as follows.
- -1 cups of baking soda
- -1 cup of warm water
- -½ cup of liquid soap (you can use powdered or flaked too, just add more water)
- -4 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
While using it you will want to shake it continuously between pours or applications to your cleaning cloth. It also works well with a sponge. And be liberal when applying it so you don’t work so hard. At my age anything I can do to keep the amount of labor down is a good thing. If it’s correctly mixed and liberally applied you should only have to do a light scrubbing to eliminate most soap scums or build ups. And always remember not to drink any of it as you work.
Bathroom Toilet Cleaner: A clean Bathroom toilet is a Godly toilet. I’m sure our preacher here would agree with me on this one.
- -1 can of Cola or other brown soda pop
- -1/2 cup of baking soda
- -1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar
- 2 Peeled Oranges
Mix it all together and dump half straight into the toilet. Let it sit for a few hours then give it a big scrub. Flush it afterwards to clear water in the bowl only. If it looks good roll with it! If not use the other half and do it again. Rarely does a toilet need done twice with this method.
Grout Cleaning: Having clean grout lines stands out to your visitors.
When I was younger and in my 80’s a friend of mine started having her bathroom grout professionally cleaned and it was never as good as my mixture did. She was jealous of my grout lines right up to her death. This mixture will also do a lot to keep mold and mildew from growing in your grout lines.
- -1 part white distilled vinegar
- -1 part dish soap
Spray it onto your grout lines and let it sit a while then just wipe it off. It really is just that simple.
If you’ve let your bathroom go to long and the microbes have actually damaged it then you’ll need to do a total bath remodel. Most of the modern systems don’t even have ceramics in them anymore. I know because my nephew Todd Ovington and his wife Alicia actually own a bathroom remodeling company called Windows Plus Bath Remodeling in Louisville KY. I’m confident in recommending them because they have some of the best ratings in the world.
