Best time to clean your bathroom – take advantage of that fresh out of the shower dew that’s just settled all over your bathroom. No need to fill a bucket full of water, just take a paper towel and wipe off the loosened dirt.
Cleaning bathroom tile and grout – one of the hardest things to clean in any bathroom is tile and that dirty grout that over time looks more and more gross.
To clean ceramic tile: mix 1 part vinegar with 4 parts water, or, make a solution of water conditioner and water. Wipe down with a soft cloth. Rinse tile thoroughly. Buff with a soft dry cloth.
To clean bathroom grout: add 3/4 cup chlorine bleach to 1 gallon of water. Put on rubber gloves and using a toothbrush, wash grout with bleach solution. Rinse grout well.
Cleaning bathroom floor – a fast way to clean your bathroom floor is to apply a spray disinfectant to the floor and wipe off with paper towels or a clean cloth.
How to clean a clogged showerhead – to get rid of accumulated mineral deposits on a showerhead, remove the showerhead and take it apart. Soak the pieces in a bowl of vinegar. Take a toothbrush and clean out remaining sediment. Replace showerhead.
Cleaning toilet bowl ring – get rid of that dirty ring around the toilet by pouring some chlorine bleach into the toilet bowl and letting it sit for a few minutes. Flush to rinse. This method rivals the best commercial toilet bowl cleaner.
Cleaning a fiberglass bath tub – fiberglass tubs can be a little harder to clean than other types. A water conditioner like Calgon works well for these types of tubs.
Clean dull shower door – clean dull shower doors with a cloth saturated with distilled white vinegar or water softener. Buff dry with a clean cloth.
Cleaning plastic shower curtains – machine wash plastic curtains in warm water with a water conditioner like Calgon. Hang dry. For mildewed curtains add 3/4 cup chlorine bleach to wash cycle.
Removing nonskid rubber tub decals – remove these sticky decals with a straightedge razor (in a holder) that has been dipped in soapy water. Remove remaining residue with nail polish remover.

Read An Opinion On: Sydney Carpet Cleaner

Nothing says opulence for your floors quite like an oriental rug. Actually, some say the correct way to design a room is to design a room “around” an oriental rug.
Generally the price of a carpet is figured out by the amount of labor and art put into the rug. When considering a rug you will want to consider the quality of the wool and the dyes used in the construction of the rug.
Some carpets that are passed off today as oriental carpets are actually machine made. Experts can tell the difference by looking at the nap of the carpet. A machine is not able to tie knots as a hand is, therefore a machine made oriental rug will have the nap of the carpet stuck between the base and the wefts. Another way to tell if a carpet is machine made is to check the back of the rug. If the nap is of polypropolene, polyolefin or synthetic wool it is most likely machine made. Also, on a machine made rug the fringe is usually sewn directly to the carpet backing and is not a part of the rug as it is with a handmade rug. Make sure that you are dealing with a reputable carpet dealer who specializes in handmade rugs. This is one of the ways to avoid paying more than you should.
When you purchase an oriental rug there are a few do’s and don’t's. First, a good quality padding will help to protect the rug, it will also help to prevent it from wrinkling or moving. Generally oriental rugs are placed over hard flooring. A good quality pad can add many years of life to a rug. Rotate the rug frequently. This will help prevent any obvious over-wear on one part of the rug. Try to keep the sun off the rug as much as possible to prevent fading. Remember, this rug will probably outlast any other furniture or rugs you have in your home, and twenty or twenty-five years worth of strong sun can fade wool rugs.
Cleaning your rug is also a consideration. Never have your rug dry cleaned. Never have an oriental wool rug steam cleaned. The steam will remove the essential oils from the carpet which will make it brittle and cause it to wear faster. If you find your rugs needs something other than a mild surface cleaning with water find an expert to do the cleaning for you.
