Bathroom cleaning tips

Maintenance  |  22/03/2017

The bathroom is a constant battleground for those wanting the ultimate bathing experience. To help maintain the sparkle and shine associated with a brand new bathroom, without the cost of creating a new one, we’ve put together the following bathroom cleaning tips so that you and your family can enjoy bathing in a spotlessly clean, relaxing bathroom environment.

Cleaning your shower enclosures and enclosure glass

To reduce the need for frequent cleaning, all enclosures within our Classic, Coastline and Mirror Collections have our AllClear® Coating applied as standard. If you don’t have a Lakes shower enclosure, worry not, we have AllClear® solutions that you can apply to your enclosure yourself.

Even with our AllClear® coating, we would still recommend cleaning your enclosure every couple of weeks to help maintain that showroom shine. Use mild soap/detergents – cleaning products should have a pH value 4 ~ 8 – anything stronger may remove or damage the coating. Rinse with water and then squeegee the glass panels and wipe the frames dry with a soft cloth. Do not use ‘spray & leave’ type cleaning products on either the framework or the glass.

Water needs to be removed from the outside of the enclosure framework too. If water is left to dry, limescale can attack the framework and damage the anodized aluminium finish.

Should a build-up of limescale occur, remove using a 50:50 solution of white vinegar and water, applied with a soft cloth and then rinse and dry thoroughly afterwards.

an image that says: "Top tips for maintaining clear shower enclosure glass 1. Use a squeegee after each shower to remove excess water. 2. Keep your bathroom well ventilated allowing the enclosure, tiles and fittings to dry between each use."

For the ultimate showering experience, take a look at our PureVueHD glass – a high quality, optically superior ‘low-iron’ glass that allows you to see your bathroom in its true colours. Combined with our advanced AllClear® coating it gives every Lakes enclosure, walk-in and bath screen within our Coastline and Classic Collections an added clarity that brings you one step closer to the ultimate showering experience – all at no extra cost!

Cleaning bathroom tiles

Bathroom tiles cover a large surface area of almost every bathroom, and can be an expensive element of your bathroom design. To keep them looking their best use a steam cleaner to effortlessly remove the grime, soap scum and water marks. Then simply use a micro-fibre cloth or muslin to dry the tiles.

Top tips for keeping your bathroom tiles clean:

  1. ‘Squeegeeing’ down after you’ve finished showering turns into a very quick habit that can save a much larger cleaning job as it slows the damaging, and streaking effect of standing water.
  2. AllClear® SWIFT is a simple but effective preventative solution that repels water, grime and limescale and can be applied to tiles, glass, porcelain, granite, metal, vinyls and plastics.

Removing mildew or mould from grout

Discolouration or dark mildew spots on grout is a common problem. The experts at GoodHousekeeping have a solution that will brighten up your grout in a matter of minutes.

Freshen the drains

Keeping drains fresh – particularly those in seldom used places such as guest bathrooms is another area that can make a huge difference to your bathing experience.

Find out how Good Housekeeping recommend you tackle the job.

So, there you have it, just a few of our favourite tips to help maintain that sparkle and shine – and bring you one step closer to the ultimate bathing experience.
