DIY Bathroom Cleaning Tips
The following are tips that can be used to ensure a clean bathroom that will keep not only your husband in a good mood but also everyone at your home.
DIY Cleaning stickers from bathroom
There are numerous reasons why people choose to have anti-slip stickers in their bathtubs. Some of the benefits of stickers include the fact that they are a stylish addition to the bathroom, are easy to clean and maintain, and do not serve as hideouts for germs.
Besides the above, stickers provide you with a good grip that prevents you from slipping when having a shower. It’s not uncommon for slips and fall accidents to happen in bathtubs as they are slippery in nature. Also, unlike mats, stickers can be used on every part of your tub that you would like to cover.
While having stickers may be beneficial for the bathroom and you, sometimes they have fulfilled their purpose, and you just want to remove them or replace them. They can be challenging to remove, and scraping them with metal can do much damage to your bathtub.
To remove stickers easily, lift the corners of the stickers carefully. You can do this using a plastic scraper or your fingernails. Spritz the stickers generously with pretreatment products designed for laundry. Allow the stickers to soak for some hours in the spray.
This will loosen up the industrial-type adhesive used in the stickers, and they become easy for you to peel off. Clean off any residue and rinse the bathtub.
