I did the cleaning with warm water a rag, a scrubber, and a very dilute mix of water and dr bronner's unscented castile soap for the bath. I used mostly elbow grease there, but used the castile soap for a crusty overhang. I used the rag and left over mix of castile soap water for the sink- soap here to get rid of the hard water and crusted on soap.  Just used a toilet scrubber for the toilet, and for the mirror I just used a rag and warm water.

Everything was polished with a dry hand towel.

It's high-time I got this BB (and clean my bathroom too I suppose)

The cleaner is the one I made for the make a natural cleaner BB which consists of ACV, Lemons and a bit of water. Plenty of elbow grease was applied during this cleaning (phew!)

I do like to think that I keep my bathroom tidy but I let it get away from me so here are the results

It’s really hard to take before and after photos in our house because we have more of a daily maintenance routine rather than a cleaning routine. So there’s rarely any dirt buildup to show. I did my best to zoom in on areas that require more work. Our biggest problem area you will see is the ceiling of the shower which was poorly designed and the former owners just tried to paint over the water damage. We will be renovating our bathroom soon and will replace the tub all together with a tiled shower which is easier to maintain.

Our daily routine is as follows:

1 we spray down any stained areas daily after our showers with vinegar (this appears to be keeping the mold from spreading for now).

2. We squeegee/ wipe down all wet areas after every use. We don’t let any water sit.

3. We use very few cosmetics and keep all horizontal surfaces as clutter free as possible.

4. If we see any dirt/mold/scum building up, we use the brush to do a quick spot scrub.

5. Toilet gets a swish with the brush and a spray of vinegar nightly before bed.

6.. Rug is washed with laundry once per week.

When I started renting this place, I was very surprised that it had such an extravagant rich person bathroom. While very aesthetic, I can't recommend it for practicality or cleaning! While I have convinced everyone in the house to squeegee the water off the shower walls after every shower, there's still build-up. One of my long-term flatmates moved out, and another was away, so it was a great time to do a deep clean of the bathroom so everything looks tidy for viewing.

I used scourers and washcloths. For the tile, I used baking soda to help scour the scum off--required a bit of doing as the regular scouring with water over the past year or so just wasn't doing the job.

Had to clean the bathroom today so here it is! I did not use much for cleaners, just a bit of vinegar for the toilet bowl and the shower base, otherwise just warm water
