  • Microfiber Mop

Cleaning Products

  • HCL acid based toilet bowl cleaner
  • Oxalic and/or phosphoric acid for general cleaning
  • Windex for mirrors (windex works best on mirrors)
  • Stainless steel cleaner preferably with citric acid that is oil based vs water based
  • Magic Erasers

How & Why

While I’m not going to break down how to wipe a mirror with a microfiber rag or how to mop I will breakdown some of the products I’ve listed:

  • HCL acid based toilet bowl cleaner – HCL acid based toilet bowl cleaners that are in gel form are safe and effective.
  • Oxalic and / or phosphoric acid (look for them in product details) are save ways to clean off rust / mildew / hard water from sinks, stainless steel, chrome, and tubs.  A great example is barkeepers friend in powder form which is like a super AJAX with oxalic acid that will scrub out anything just about
  • Magic erasers need little explanation but in short are great to finish out tubs after using an acid based product and rinsing

The biggest takeaway from this blog post is that ALWAYS use Acid based cleaners in restrooms and never user bleach.  If you use the right chemicals you’ll get great results vs using chlorinated junk.
