How to clean your bathroom surfaces

The walls, tiles and floors of your bathroom probably take the more wear and tear than many of the rooms in your house – so keeping them clean is a job that needs to be done regularly and thoroughly.

Step 1: First things first, start with any tiling you may have in your bathroom.

Step 2: Using Harpic Bathroom Cleaner and a scouring brush begin by scrubbing your wall tiles. By starting with the tiles, you can later catch the water that dribbles into your shower or bathtub.

Step 3: Don't forget to pay attention to the tile grouting as grime and other stubborn stains often build up in these areas.

Step 4: Now, it's time to use an old toothbrush and the Harpic Bathroom Cleaning Spray. The spray angle means you can apply the cleaner onto difficult to reach places, such as around your taps or in hard to reach corners. Use the toothbrush to remove any built-up dirt.
