Tips To Keep Your White Kitchen And Bathroom Clean And Tidy
The kitchen is considered to be the ‘heart’ of a home and the bathroom to be a place for relaxation and rejuvenation. Unfortunately, both of these areas of the home can also become locations for a greasy, sticky, gooey, mouldy nightmare if they are not cleaned properly. This is even truer if these areas of your home have been updated with the latest white kitchen bathroom tile trends. Over time, the cabinets and tiles in these rooms can become accumulated with food splatter, grease, bacteria and mildew that seems to create an almost impenetrable coating on the surfaces of countertops, cabinets and floors.
It can be challenging to try and clean your kitchen and bathroom when you are facing these obstacles, and it can be difficult to know how to maintain the colour of the cabinets and tiles.
The Issue With White Cabinets And Tiles
The main reason why it may seem more difficult to keep white kitchens and bathrooms clean is that dirt and grime are easily revealed on white surfaces. In addition, if there is older woodwork in these rooms, you are likely to face another problem and that is the yellowing of the varnish. This means that if the white wooden cabinets have been sealed with varnish, the varnish could be causing the discolouration of the cabinets.
In order to resolve this problem, you will need to do one of two things. The first option is to strip the varnish, repaint the cabinets and seal them again. However, if the discolouration is not as bad, you can use one of the following cleaning methods.
Removing Grease Using Baking Soda And Vinegar
Although you are more likely to see grease accumulation on kitchen cabinets than on bathroom cabinets, this method can be used to refresh bathroom cabinets as well. You can use natural cleaning products such as vinegar and baking soda.
Baking soda helps to loosen the grease from the surface so the cabinets can be cleaned. When combined with vinegar, you will have an effective and safe cleaning solution that may be used in any area of the home to remove grime and dirt. The only materials you will need are:
– Warm water
– Baking soda
– White Vinegar
– Microfibre cloth
– Dry towel
Keep in mind that vinegar is acidic, so you will want to make sure it does not touch any marble or stone countertops.
How Clean Is Your Bathroom?
According to experts, the average household bathroom is gross. Not only is the bacteria in bathrooms found in common areas such as the tub/shower and toilet, it is also found on the floor, cabinets and fixtures. The good news is that there are some easy and simple tips you can use to not only rid your bathroom of bacteria and odour, but also keep tile floors sparkling white and clean.
Keep Tile In The Bathroom Free Of Dirt And Grime
Once again, white vinegar can be used on any tiled surfaces to remove dirt from the grout. Take a grout brush and dip it in straight vinegar and scrub between all crevices. You can also use bleach.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly and ventilate the room.
It is also important to make sure the grout is sealed at least twice a year to prevent moisture, dirt and bacteria from infiltrating.
When living in a home updated with white kitchen bathroom tile trends, it may seem as though these areas get dirtier faster. By utilising these tips, you can prevent the accumulation of mould, mildew and grease whilst keeping your home clean and tidy.
