A cleaning expert has revealed how she transforms filthy bathrooms using two commonplace household items.
Fiona Mills is a former hoarding technician that involved clearing and scrubbing homes, so she knows a thing or two about fighting grime.
Mills, who is now a franchise business coach at Spaulding Decon, said the bathroom was the “most germ-ridden area of the home.”
The 37-year-old told Insider: “Without appropriate cleaning, they can inhibit bacterial growth, and can also affect the integrity of parts used in your bathtub and toilet.”
At its worst during her time as a hoarding technician, Mills scrubbed a toilet for two to three hours while on the job — but she shared tips so readers don’t have to.
She recommends Microban 24 Hour Bathroom Cleaner and The Pink Stuff Miracle Bathroom Foam Cleaner.
After the bowl is cleaned she said it was important to clean the seat which was the “most touched part of the toilet excluding the flush handle”.
For this, she suggested Lysol wipes or disinfectant spray which should be applied to a toothbrush which then scrubs the area.
To clean a bathtub’s sides, Mills suggested scrubbing it with hot water and a bathroom cleaning spray.
A mix of bathroom cleaner or multi-purpose spray, comet powder, and lemon juice should be used on the floor.
She said lemon juice and an unused coffee filter worked wonders.
Showerheads should be soaked overnight in white vinegar every six months to retain good water pressure.
