The holidays are over and it’s time to get back into routine. I haven’t done a cleaning post for a while, so for the month of August I’m going to be doing a series on cleaning the bathroom. Today I’m starting with the first thing I do when cleaning the bathroom – cleaning the mirror and hand basin.
About four years ago I was invited to an ENJO party. ENJO is one of those companies that sells their products through demos at parties, and their products are for cleaning (mainly for the house but there is also a range for cleaning the body).
The demo that impressed me the most was cleaning the bathroom mirror. We all quietly squeezed into the bathroom (there were children sleeping in the room next door) and the host showed us how easy and quick it was to get the mirror clean, with no streaks. So I came away at the end of the evening with the starter pack, and have been using it ever since.
We were told at the party that the cloths have a guarantee of three years but often last for about five, and after four years mine are still going well.
DISCLAIMER: I had been planning on writing this post for some time, and then about a month ago ENJO contacted me and asked if I had heard of their products. When I replied that I was using them and was planning on writing about them they offered to send me a couple of their tea towels when I had written the post. So, I’m not sure if that really counts as a ‘sponsored post’, but I’m being transparent anyway!
So, here’s what I do and the results!
Then wipe it across the whole mirror. A quick sweep across the whole mirror will do, but if you do have some stubborn stains (like when the kids smear toothpaste on the mirror) then give it an extra wipe with more water, but don’t scrub – it’s not good for the cloth.
The next thing to do is wipe the mirror with the Bathroom ENJOfil. This is the absorbant cloth that will dry away all the water and leave everything streak free.
One or two quick wipes should do the trick, you don’t need to wipe away every smear until the mirror is dry as it will dry streak-free. This is how my mirror looked when I had finished and left it to dry.
While the mirror is drying I then move on to cleaning the taps and the basin. I start with the taps and give them a wipe with the Bathroom Glove and then a wipe with the Bathroom ENJOfil. Again, they usually just need a quick wipe. I usually have the glove on one hand and hold the absorbant cloth in the other. To clean behind the tap take the glove off your hand and hold run the cloth behind the tap.
After cleaning the taps I then move on to the basins. I leave them until last as they will probably have soap scum and toothpaste residue to wipe away. If the glove gets soapy just give it a rinse and continue wiping the bench until it is all clean and then wipe it dry with the ENJOfil.
By this time the mirror should also be dry and streak-free.
Then I move on to the rest of the bathroom. To clean the clothes I wash them in the washing machine on a warm cycle.
