What is the best way to clean kitchen and bathroom perfectly?

Sinks : From toothpaste dribbles to overspray from hair products, the lowly sink endures a daily barrage of dirt and grime. Keep it sparkling back at you with regular cleaning.Use all-purpose bathroom cleaner to remove light soil and film. For more hardened deposits, abrasive or soft-scrub cleaners may be used, as they will be easy to rinse from ceramic (vitreous china) surfaces. Cleaners formulated with bleach will remove toothpaste dribbles and sanitize surfaces, too. Keep bathroom cleaning green by using homemade cleaners. They'll make your bathroom sparkle and shine without harsh chemicals — or a harsh price tag.

Shower and tub : Soap scum, bath oil, hair products and body soil combine forces to assault the shining surface of the shower and tub, while tub rims, fixtures and faucets provide hiding places for moisture, mold and mildew. Put the job off and deposits harden and ossify, and mildew and mold take up residence in dark corners. Harness time and cleaning power to make short work of cleaning the shower and tub.

Spray and stand : Before cleaning the rest of the bathroom, spray the tub area with a generous layer of all-purpose bathroom cleaner, and allow the product to stand while you clean elsewhere. The standing time helps the cleanser to dissolve oils and soap scum, so you'll need less elbow grease to remove it.

Get scrubbing. Use abrasive scrubbing pads to remove bathtub rings or deposits on shower floors. Tile brushes scrub tile grout and reach into cracks and corners, while the handle protects knuckles from accidental contact with the tub. A cleaning toothbrush does a quick job of removing buildup deposits around tub fixtures or faucet.

Rinse clean. A detachable showerhead allows you to rinse off cleaner quickly and cleanly. If you don't have one, stock your cleaning tote with a removable rubber showerhead that attaches to the bathtub tap. Commonly used for shampooing hair or bathing pets, they're inexpensive and make it easier to rinse tub and shower walls after you clean.

Fiberglass Showers and Glass Doors :

These surfaces need special treatment. Clean them with a nonabrasive cleaner such as an all-purpose bathroom cleaner, pine oil or baking soda. Avoid abrasive cleansers or scrubbing pads because they may scratch or dull the finish.

You have to clean your gas or electric burners every now and then. Gas burners can be removed and washed by hand with warm water and soap. If you are lucky to have gas burners that can go into the dishwasher, throw them in there after you scrub off excess food. For electric burners, wipe debris with a moist sponge.

Great tips, thank you! For washing
shower heads put white vinegar into a plastic bag (enough to fully submerge the
showerhead nozzle) and tie it in place for an overnight soaking. Then come the
morning you can remove it in the morning and run the water to rinse. Give
plastic shower curtains and liners a spin in the washing machine with your
regular detergent and a few old towels, which act as scrubbers to help get rid
of soap scum and mildew.


I swear by this washing routine, it works every time for me.

Hey, Thank you these tips are really useful. We need these small DIY tips to keep the house clean and safe. We have recently renovated the house with the additional info from the professionals and installed new impact glass doors and windows. Maintaining the cleanliness of all theses things is very important and yes, I agree with that, use of adhesive and scrub should be avoided they make the glass dull and leaves scratches.
