Nobody in Australia wants to have their baths interrupted, especially when they are enjoying that warm, soaking feeling while they relax. But the height of comfort and relaxation comes not from drawing a warm bath but from having a clean bathtub too. Buying and maintaining cheap freestanding baths is more than just about looking good; it’s about feeling comfortable and relaxed when using the home as a retreat from the world. It can be difficult to maintain this cleanliness level if too many people use the same tub, but with these tips, Australians will be able to keep their bathtubs pristine for years! Here are some different ways Australians can use to take care of the baths in their homes:
- Use A Non-slippery Bath Mat.
Bath mats are helpful because they keep any water that spills on the floor from going into the tub and making it slippery, which is why people should always use one when showering or bathing in the tub. The best type of bath mat is made of plastic because it’s easy to clean, durable enough for regular use, and won’t leave any residue or mouldy smells behind when it needs to be replaced every few years. Plastic also allows Australians to easily clean off any dirt or grit that might get on it during use so that no part of the body touches anything but clean plastic.
2. Clean The Bathtub Correctly
First, use a cleaning solution. This can be a mixture of baking soda, vinegar, or some other natural cleanser that Australians may have around the house.
Next, use a sponge or soft cloth to wipe down the bathtub’s surface. Don’t use abrasive cleaners because they will scratch and damage the tub’s finish over time. And don’t use bleach! Bleach can dull surfaces over time and is not recommended by manufacturers because it can damage certain materials used in modern bathtubs (like acrylic).
After wiping down the tub with the cleaning solution (or just plain water), dry it thoroughly before leaving it alone to dry on its own—don’t let soap scum buildup!
3. Clean The Baths Often
When installing cheap freestanding baths, remember to clean them at least once a week. This includes cleaning the bathroom sink, toilet and tub.
To clean the bathtub, use a sponge and mild soap to wipe down both sides of the tub with water. To clean the faucets on the sink or tub, use baking soda and vinegar to get rid of hard water stains or buildup. Use an old toothbrush to scrub the grout in between tiles in both bathrooms! Get cleaning essentials depending upon the size of the tub, the standard tub size in Australia being about 1.5 m × 0.75 m. Cleaning supplies should be stored away from children’s reach; even if they can’t read yet, they will still know what bleach smells like!
Bathtubs are a luxury that many people in Australia take for granted. Unfortunately, this can lead to an improperly maintained tub and, ultimately, more work than necessary when people want to use it again. It’s essential that they know how to care for the bathtub so that it lasts as long as possible and does not look unsightly or damaged when guests visit the home.
