How to Tackle Stubborn Dirt In Watford: Bathrooms
Published on Sunday, 28 April 2013
Sometimes you can get dirt in your bathroom in Watford that just completely refuses to move anywhere and barely responds to your average weekly clean, however thorough you may think you are. This is often a bog problem if you move into a property that wasn’t well treated by its previous owners or perhaps you just have a much keener eye for dirt than they did. Either way, stubborn dirt is definitely a problem for bathrooms and here are a few tips and tricks to help you handle it.
Limescale: It’s one of those things that just creeps up on you behind the taps and around the drain. Before you know it, it’s become a lingering problem in your home in Watford, WD1. So a little trick to deal with that is to soak kitchen towel in vinegar and then wrap it round the taps and put it in the plughole and leave it for about 20 minutes so that it can really cut through all that limescale. Another substance which might work just as well, it certainly works just as well to get rid of tarnish on coins, is coca-cola. When dealing with something as acidic as vinegar make sure you take some precautions, like gloves, especially if you have any broken skin or cuts on your hands. That will sting.
Hair: While I wouldn’t class hair as being stubborn dirt, there is something persistent about it and I would certainly class it as something that might need special attention in the WD2 area. The best thing to do is to stop it becoming a problem in the first place. Get a filter to put in the plug hole. These usually have a bowl which fits neatly inside or on top of the drain and then a lip round the edge so that you can take it out and remove the hair after each shower or bath if you’re quick with it once you take the plug out. It works like a colander, letting the water drain away and trapping the hair. It’s important to rinse a bath or shower after each use anyway, but this rinse means that any lingering hairs get washed in the direction of the filter too. This way, you clean out the hair after each wash rather than having to pull something resembling a drowned rat from the plughole when the drain inevitably blocks.
Shower Doors/Screens: Obviously the point with a shower door or screen is that you can’t fully see the naked person in the shower when the door is all steamed up and a lot of shower doors come with tastefully placed wave designs to make seeing the naked person all the more difficult. But at the same time you don’t want these shower doors to become grimy and filthy. It’s just not pleasant. If cleaning the doors is ignored for too long then this can become a stubborn dirt problem. The trick is to use a window wiper. These can be found in most places in Watford but if you really struggle then a de-icer will be just as effective. Start by wetting the doors, then spraying your bathroom cleaner – the thicker the better – and rubbing it in with a cloth. You can then begin the very satisfying process of scraping it off in even downward motions revealing a squeaky clean shower door. If the dirt refuses to budge then replace your bathroom cleaner with bleach and try again. When handling bleach in the WD1 district remember – always wear gloves and old clothes.
