You can make use of a clean, dry microfiber mop to reach high spots.

2. Get rid of all that grout

Grout is essentially the dirt that accumulates in the crevices of tiles in the bathroom. This is true of the bathroom wall as well as the flooring. While spending hours together scrubbing each crevice isn't really an option, this next tip offers you the much needed respite you seek.

3. Wash the towels the right way

In order to wash your towels, make use of the sanitizing setting in your washroom. If you do not have this option, you can simply choose to bleach your towels. Make sure that you clean your towels every three or four days. Don’t forget to clean the towel bar as well.

4. Make sure that toilet is sparkly clean!

To clean the toilet you begin by pouring a cup of baking soda into the bowl. Allow this to sit for a few minutes, brush and then flush! If you still see spots, make use of a damp pumice stone which is abrasive enough to remove stains that are caused by mineral deposits and lime scale.
