Keeping your bathroom clean is essential for both hygiene and aesthetics. A clean bathroom not only feels more comfortable to use but also helps prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. With all the shiny surfaces, bathrooms can quickly look unsightly and become a burden to clean so the easiest solution is to establish some key habits to avoid problems – especially if you have hard water! You can read our previous blog to identify if you have hard water and what to do about it. In this article, we share our top tips for how to keep your bathroom sparking clean:
Develop a routine
Establish a regular cleaning schedule for your bathroom. This could be weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on your usage and personal preferences. Stick to the schedule as much as possible, and make sure to prioritise the most important areas, such as the toilet, sink, and shower. Limescale plays a role in encouraging the growth of bacteria so be sure to keep on top of limescale build up with regular cleans!

Keep cleaning supplies handy
Ensure you have all the cleaning supplies you need to keep your bathroom clean. These might include a disinfectant spray, toilet cleaner, glass cleaner, a scrub brush, and microfiber towels. Keep these supplies within easy reach so that you can quickly tackle any messes that arise. In our previous blog, we shared our tips on how to remove limescale from commercial cleaners to natural remedies.
Remove excess moisture
Moisture in the bathroom can create an ideal environment for mould and mildew to grow, which can lead to unpleasant odours and damage to surfaces. To prevent this, ensure that you remove excess moisture after each use. Keep a squeegee handy to remove water from shower walls and screens, and wipe down surfaces with a towel.
Clean as you go
Cleaning as you go is an excellent way to maintain a clean bathroom. After using the sink or shower, wipe down the surfaces with a towel or cloth to prevent water spots and soap scum from building up. Also, ensure that you clean the toilet regularly to prevent unpleasant odours and bacteria build-up.
Clutter can make your bathroom feel messy and uninviting. It can also trap excess dirt such as hair and prevent regular cleaning due to the need to clear clutter first. To prevent this, regularly declutter your bathroom by throwing out empty bottles, old towels, and other unnecessary items. Make sure you have adequate storage to keep surfaces clear. This will make cleaning more manageable and keep your bathroom looking tidy.
Keeping your bathroom organised can make it easier to clean and maintain. Invest in organisers for your toiletries, towels, and other bathroom essentials. Where multiple people use a bathroom, it’s especially important to keep toiletries organised. This will prevent clutter and make it easier to find what you need.
Hire a professional cleaner
If you are finding it challenging to keep your bathroom clean or simply don’t have the time, consider hiring a professional cleaner. A professional cleaner can deep clean your bathroom, removing grime and build-up, and leaving it sparkling clean. Subsequent cleans should be easier once the bathroom has had a deep clean. You can continue to keep your bathrooms well organised and clutter-free to make this easier.
Permanently Remove Limescale
One of the biggest challenges in maintaining a clean bathroom is the build up of limescale caused by hard water. Not only can this make your bathroom look grubby and dull, it can also affect your appliances such as shower heads and taps. With many aesthetic and beautiful designs, such as rainforest showers and waterfall taps, it’s disappointing when they don’t look their best. The best option for permanently removing limescale and maintaining a sparkling bathroom is by installing a Halcyan Water Conditioner. By conditioning hard water as it comes into the home, water in your bathrooms behaves like soft water so you can enjoy a bathroom free of limescale that’s much easier to clean!
