Cleaned the bathroom today. Our water loves to stain things orange, just by touching them. Lovely, eh? My kids like to stain things just by playing (they decided to smear soap scum all over the counter while I wasn't looking. Lovely!)
Tub Before/After--I used baking soda+hydrogen peroxide to create natural oxygen bleach and scrubbed the living daylights out of the tub with that. I wipe the tub down after every shower with a towel, and that really helped keep it looking cleaner, but it's not enough, so deep cleaning!
Sink before and after --first wiped off all the soap scum with a towel and used that to clean. Then spritzed with vinegar. For the stubborn rust stain (why were they playing with washers in the sink?), I used baking soda and hydrogen peroxide.
Mirror before and after -- I used water and scrubbed with a paper towel. Cotton towels never seem to work as well and leave lint. I could have used rubbing alcohol, but that had VOCs that I'd rather avoid, and just water and elbow grease does a pretty good job!
Floor before and after-- I swept it...and swept it again and again. Then spritzed with a little vinegar and water and used a rag under my foot to scrub it
Toilet before and after -- I used citric acid dusted in the bowl. Let that sit while I cleaned the counter, and then scrubbed it off. I just realized I never took the after picture--I had to cook dinner. I'll go take it after I get the kids to sleep. Surely it can't have gotten messy again in just 4 hours... (EDIT: Got the kids to sleep. The toilet was unflushed with TP and some new stains. Cleaned it again. Took another picture before someone managed to make it dirty again!)
