Do you have a cleaner?

Sometimes, sometimes, an email comes in that makes me feel like a very fancy blogger.

“How would you like us to come round and clean your bathroom….” That was the question! Do I need to tell you my reply? It was along the lines of, HELL YES! I won’t lie, I’m not the best bathroom cleaner in the world. Kitchen? Yes, always sparkling, bathroom, not so much. I mean, the toilet is clean, the sink is clean, but I don’t go all out all the time. I’m shaming myself here aren’t I……?


The lovely Viakal team came round and cleaned my bathroom for me! The shower screen is now as sparkling as it was when it was bought! Apparently being in Surrey means we’re prone to hard water, which is my excuse and I’m sticking to it. In fact, I might even go as far as to say now it’s got it’s sparkle back, I’m more likely to keep it that way. Or, at least, ask the hubs to do it for me. Fairs fair and all that?

I’m not going to go into a massive product post, but if you have got hard water issues like moi, then you have to try their spray and limescale remover, that stuff seriously shifts some, well, limescale!

If you’re prone to some cleaning tips, have a look below, don’t say I don’t treat you!

• Storage, storage, storage– it’s very difficult to clean around shampoos and shower gels so put them away after every use especially if you have a big family

• To create that sparkly hotel feeling, use a wet cloth to clean then polish with a separate dry one

• Colour coordinate your cleaning cloths – blue for loo and pink for sink

• Keep an eye out for unsightly, chalky limescale especially if you live in a hard water area and use a good limescale remover like Viakal as soon as you spot any – danger areas are taps, the plughole and shower head (it’s best to unscrew this and soak)

• Keep your toothbrush in the cupboard to protect it from airborne germs

• Don’t let dirt build up, instead wipe the sink after every use

• Opt for tiles or a lino flooring rather than carpet as this is a breeding ground for bacteria

• It’s a great idea to keep cleaning products in the bathroom itself but pop them in the cupboard

Now, how can I persuade the husband to get me a cleaner…..?
