2. How to deep clean your bathroom

Express cleans are great for busy people, but sometimes your bathroom needs a deep clean with 99.9% germ removal. Especially on small surfaces and items, such as:



The bathroom tap is also a hotbed for the build-up of bacteria. A lot of hands turn this on and off, so give them a spray and wipe with an effective cleaner to ensure that germs don’t spread.

Shower curtains and doors

Your shower curtains and doors are most susceptible to getting wet and staying wet, making them magnets for mold and mildew. To keep them from forming, store a small squeegee in the shower and use it to clean the walls and door after every few showers.

7. 5 ways to eradicate Bathroom Mold & Mildew

A damp environment is a germ’s best friend, and there is no place in your home with more moisture than the bathroom. But with a few extra precautions, you can conquer bathroom mold and mildew once and for all.


Got mold? Start with a frontal assault

If your bathroom has existing mold or mildew, use a cleaner such as Lizol® Bathroom Power Cleaner, which is easy to spray on and wipe off with a sponge or paper towel. For tougher mold or mildew stains, allow the cleaner to sit for 5 minutes and rinse.


Moving air is your bathroom’s best friend

With all the humidity that collects in the bathroom, especially after the morning round of showers, airing out the room is one of the best ways to fight mold and mildew. 


Stay on top of your shower

Your shower curtains or doors tend to get wet and stay wet, making them magnets for mildew. Thus, clean them daily with a germ removal product such as Lizol® Bathroom Power Cleaner.


Tame germ-breeding towels

Make sure everyone spreads out and hangs up towels right after drying. You should also launder towels and replace them with fresh ones every 3 to 5 uses, which is different from 3 to 5 days. 


Ditch carpets and soft mats

Hard surfaces in a bathroom are easy to keep clean. Soft, porous surfaces like bathroom carpets are not so much. Make sure it’s laundered as frequently as your towels to keep mold and mildew at a minimum.
