Why Wait for Spring? Here's How to Prepare for “Autumn” Cleaning
If you’ve never been a fan of spring cleaning, what we’re about to say may shock you… you can do autumn cleaning, too. We know that may not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, but if you’re a whirlpool bath owner, it can really pay off in the long run. Let’s see how you can prepare your bathroom for the cooler months... without losing your cool.
Tip #1: Ensure proper ventilation to fight off mould
During autumn and winter, mould can be the bane of many bathrooms. Without correct ventilation in place, moisture can quickly build up and the condensation can lead to mould and other grime developing across the bathroom. Luckily, you can prevent this with a few simple steps now. If you have an extractor fan, be sure to use it whenever you bath or shower. If not, simply opening a window can keep the airflow such that moisture won’t have a chance to get out of control.
Tip #2: Make your whirlpool bath last longer with daily (but quick) maintenance
Nobody likes adding extra tasks to their to-do list, especially if they’re cleaning-related, but with this quick tip, you can actually save yourself from extra cleaning in the long-run. By dropping a whirlpool bath sanitising tablet into your tub after you’ve finished bathing, then running the system for a couple of minutes and draining, your bath will last longer, run more smoothly, and be far less susceptible to the build-up of dirt, grime, and other hidden nasties in the pipework. Sure, it’s an extra two minutes after your bath, but it could save you a lot of time and money down the line.
Tip #3: Take the opportunity to de-clutter
When you’re feeling stressed, the last thing you need is clutter in your personal space. Whether you’re cleaning for spring, autumn, or really anything else, an organised cleaning of your bathroom presents a great opportunity to de-clutter. There are plenty of ways to do this, including adding towel racks, vanity units, and even the iconic bathroom cabinet. But on top of these options, you can also be a little more ruthless with everyday bathroom items like shampoos, cosmetics, and so on. You don’t need to throw them out, but simply keep them out of site. Need additional storage space and a new whirlpool bath? Well, now you can have both. Pretty cool, right?
Tip #4: Give your future-self the gift of warm towels
If you’ve never experienced the feeling of wrapping yourself in a warm towel after stepping out of the tub or shower, you are definitely missing out. But don’t worry, we have the answer, and it’s probably more affordable than you think. By installing a set of heated towel rails in your bathroom, you can ensure that your towels are snuggly warm every time you finish up your bathing. Not only that, but you’ll also stave off potential damp and smelly towels that can result from leaving them to air-dry in the colder months. It’s a win-win!
