One of the most significant issues people face in cleaning the Bathroom is being able to clean their particular kind of tile. The primary type of tile we typically see in bathrooms is porcelain or ceramic. It’s what I own. It’s highly durable and easy to clean. If you have ceramic tiles, congrats! You’ve won the lottery for bathroom tiles.
Products won’t damage the tiles made from porcelain or ceramic; therefore, you can use most tile cleaners. However, it is essential to ensure you’re using a non-scratch tool, as you don’t want scratch marks to ruin the appearance of the tile.
Cement tiles are a popular tile for bathrooms. One word of caution cement tiles doesn’t require acidic cleaning products! Acidic cleaners could scratch the sealer and cause damage to the tiles’ surface. Be sure to make use of a nonabrasive device for cleaning.
The next step is glass tiles. These are water-resistant and stain-resistant, making them ideal for the shower. But you must be sure that you don’t use abrasive products when cleaning. This applies to tools and cleaning products since glass can be easily scratched.
There’s also the old umbrella for natural stone. I’m talking about granite marble, limestone, slate, quartz, and travertine. Natural stone bathroom tiles can have a highly polished or raw, unpolished appearance. Both look stunning. However, you must be cautious when cleaning the tiles.
An acidic product can stain the natural stone and damage your tile. These tiles are easily scratched. So be sure to use a gentle instrument to clean them. The most important thing is to use an extremely neutral pH cleaner and a gentle one when dealing with natural stone.
This is all you’ve ever wanted to know about different kinds of bathroom tile (and I’d guess that you know more than you’ve ever thought you would be aware of). Therefore, let’s dive into the most unpleasant part of my life in cleaning the Bathroom.

Mildew and Mold in the Bathroom
Another problem that many people encounter in bathroom cleaning is mildew and mold. The Bathroom is damp (sorry to anyone who doesn’t like the word”moist”). The combination of moisture and poor ventilation is the perfect recipe for mold and mildew. When you’re in the Bathroom, especially when you shower, there’s bound to be a constant battle between your cleaning and preventing the growth of mildew and mold.
The best method to keep at the top of moisture levels is to ensure that every family member squeezess the shower walls following every shower to get rid of the buildup of moisture.

Try my homemade everyday shower cleanser to prevent the growth of mildew and mold. The ingredients work to eliminate bacteria before it can transform into mold. But if you notice any signs of mold and mildew, you can create a solution by mixing the same amount of bleach as water and eliminate the problem. You can also purchase some store-bought products.
Make sure to vent your Bathroom to ensure that it doesn’t feel like a humid place. Running your bathroom fan at least 30 minutes after each shower is recommended. If you don’t have a fan in your Bathroom,, then you should open a door and keep it open for at least 30 minutes.
