  3. Use a soft toothbrush or old toothbrush to scrub hard-to-reach areas.

Shower heads can accumulate mineral deposits over time, causing poor water flow. Here's how you can clean them:

  1. Remove the shower head, if possible, and soak it in a white vinegar solution.
  2. Use a toothbrush or an old brush to gently scrub the rubber nozzles where the water comes out. Alternatively, you can use a non-scratch sponge, such as the Vileda Scrunge Multi-Use Scrub Sponge.

How to clean the bathroom floor

Maintain a pristine bathroom floor with these quick steps:

  • Sweep or vacuum: Remove loose debris to prevent scratches during cleaning. Top pick by Canadians is the Vileda Oskar Broom with Dustpan.
  • Choose the right cleaner: Opt for a suitable cleaner based on your floor type. We recommend Vileda PACS Hard Floor Cleaner, which uses naturally-derived enzymes to break down dirt and grease. Plus the refreshing scents of Crisp Citrus or soothing Lavender will leave your bathroom smelling like a spa.
  • Mop efficiently: Pair Vileda PACS with the EasyWring RinseClean spin mop. This innovative mop separates clean and dirty water, so you are always mopping with clean water. Your floors will thank you.
  • Address grout lines: Use a paste of baking soda and water for grout or a mixture of white vinegar and water for persistent stains.

Bathroom tiles can lose their lustere when grout becomes discolored or dirty. Follow these tips for cleaning bathroom tile grout:

  1. Mix baking soda and water to form a paste.
  2. Apply the paste to the grout lines and scrub with a toothbrush.
  3. For stubborn stains, use a mixture of white vinegar and water.
  4. Rinse and dry the tiles and grout for a fresh look.

Even in the best households, unsightly discolorations and deposits on the tile grouts occur from time to time. With a little toothpaste and an old toothbrush, however, they can be cleaned perfectly. Leave it to soak in for a while, and then wipe it again with clean water.
