Bathroom Cleaning Products Are Not Important, Or Are They?

Everyday there are commercials on TV promoting this product over that product, but a valid question arises – do they really work?    When you look closer one of the biggest products promoted is in the area of bathroom cleaning products.

The reason they are promoted so much is due to the fact that they are very important to the cleanliness of a household since bathrooms foster so much opportunity for germs and bacteria to grow.

You therefore need an effective cleaning product, otherwise you and your family run the risk of getting sick.  Since competition on TV is fierce for these types of products there are clearly plenty to choose from – but don’t overlook the fact that you can create your own cleaning products, even your own ‘green’ cleaning products.

Woman With Safe and Natural Cleaning Products

Before you decide to buy or create your own make sure you think through your end goals:

  • to clean your bathroom effectively
  • to use a cleaner that won’t harm you or your family
  • and to do it with a product that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg to buy or produce

A couple of things to remember about commercial bought products is they tend to be a bit acidic so consider using eye protection.  However, whether you use eye protection or not you should always make sure you use latex gloves to protect your hands.

If you do buy commercial products remember that they vary in terms of type of product.

For example:

  • some products come in the form of liquid sprays
  • some come in wipes
  • others in a aerosol foams
  • some are bathroom gel cleansers
  • finally some come in a powder type cleanser.

Some popular brands include:

  • Ajax
  • Comet
  • Lysol
  • Clorox
  • Windex
  • and Scrubbing Bubbles

to name a few of the hundred, but again you can even create your own.

The top three purposes of a bathroom cleaning product are to disinfect, to clean and to deodorize.  Also, when we think about how busy our lives are these days you also have to consider how fast something will work and how long it will last. The last thing you want to do is have to clean the bathroom every day.

Again, bathrooms are one of the most dreaded places to clean because it is one of the dirtiest places in the house.  Grime and mildew grow quickly and can also be stubborn, so sometimes extra strength cleaners will be needed many times.

The good news is there are plenty of products to clean those heavy-duty jobs.  Before buying anything make sure you read the labels thoroughly to find out what is exactly in each product.   In the end you’ll be happy you read the product label instead of just making a guess about how it would work.  You don’t want to have an allergic reaction due to contact with your skin.

If your budget is tight these days, try to create your own homemade bathroom cleaning products. Surprisingly it’s not that difficult to do and it won’t require a science degree!
