cleaning your bathroom, let's face it, it's not an easy task it takes a lot of time and energy to make sure everything still looks and works like it was when it was new, and the type of cleaner you use and method has a great deal to do with that. that's why we have created this page as a little bit extra advice to ease you through the proses of your new bathroom cleaning routine.
First things first, let us look at what you shouldn't use. As you can probably tell from the title we strongly advise against using any product that contains bleach or aggressive chemical products. Bleach products are so corrosive that after a short period of time of application it will strip the finish. You will end up with patchy marks on the product like the tap in fig 1.
now I hear you cry "But Phillips bathrooms, what do I use to clean my bathroom now? Almost every product contains some form of bleach in it, I'm lost and scared in a world I do not know! help me!". Worry not! For there is a product that has the perfect PH level, natural and cheap to buy.
And it's Vinegar.
Yes vinegar, 100% natural antibacterial, prevents limescale and safe to use around younger family members. whilst also tasting blooming good on your chips.
We recommend a weak solution:
1 part vinegar
5 parts warm water
generous squeeze of washing up liquid
Let’s Move on to the method in the madness, you should not use any hard sponge or cloth as that will also corrode the product (a bit of a given) use a soft cloth or paper/tea towel.
The way you clean the product has an effect. Only use a small amount of force (unless it’s practically dirty). Use small circular motions, in the words of Mr. Miyagi "Wax on, Wax off".
That will clean the section in moments.
This method and solution will work on all products including:
And any glass
Lime Scale prevention is incredibly important for your health, and the health and durability of your product. Now I hear you say “But what is Limescale? And why is it invading my house? Should I call the police or scare it off with a bat?" well you could try but I don’t think your success rate would be too high and you may get a fine or two. Let’s look at what limescale is first.
Wiki says "Limescale is the hard, off-white, chalky deposit found in kettles, hot-water boilers and the inside of inadequately maintained hot-water central heating systems."
What it doesn’t mention is that it can appear on your taps, showers and leaves a residue on your shower tray/screen and bath/screen
The best way to fight against limescale on your products is with the same solution and method we mentioned easier with the vinegar and water solution. if the offending mark is quite tough to leave solution to soak for 5 minutes and it will wipe away with ease.
(please do not leave the solution any longer than 5 minutes as it may corrode the product
