How to Clean a Triangular Spa Bath

by Julie Finch-Scally

They sit in the bathroom taking up one corner. They look inviting and home owners who use them swear how refreshing they are. They are large, deep and showy. They are the spa bath, those triangle shaped baths that are hard to clean.

Some spa baths are the same shape and size as a regular bath and there is not problem with cleaning those. You clean them the same way as cleaning an ordinary bath by wiping them over with a cream cleanser, making sure the jets are clean, then rinsing the product away.

But with the large triangle shaped spa it is not the same. They are difficult to clean. Because the point of the triangle cannot be reached by leaning over the edge, you have to climb into the bath to get to that section.

Climbing into the bath to clean it presents another problem. How can the bath be rinsed with water without getting your feet wet? There is an answer. It is called a dry clean of a spa. This is how it is done.

Climb into the bath and wipe over the back area with a damp sponge and cream cleanser making sure the sides and half the bottom is cleaned and you have cleaned around all the jets. To remove the product you will need a dry soft cloth. Rub that over the area you have just cleaned making sure you remove all the cream cleanser.

The back half of the bath is then finished. You will need to climb out of the bath and lean over the front to clean the remaining dirty area. Use the same damp sponge and more cream cleanser and clean the rest of the bath. Make sure you have cleaned it all, especially the base where you were previously standing.

Once you have cleaned the front section of the bath rub over that area with another soft dry cloth removing all the cream cleanser. When you have finished, the bath should be sparkling.

If there are tiles and taps around the back it is wise to wipe over those with a cloth and some multi-purpose cleanser when you climb into the bath, before starting the dry cleaning process.

I am sure it you use this system to clean your triangular shaped spa bath in future, it will always be inviting.

Is your teenager responsible for cleaning their bedroom?

by Julie Finch-Scally

The school holidays are over, the children are finally out of the house and back at school. It has been hard keeping the place reasonably clean while they have been around all the time, but now the house is empty you have to get it back to normal?

I believe the main thing we all should remember is our children are responsible for their own rooms. There is no need to clean up after them. If they want to scramble over a mound of books and clothes to get into to bed each night then that is up to them.

This of course doesn’t mean the rest of the house has to look like that. Children pick up habits from us, so if we leave things everywhere our children will think that is par for the course and do the same thing. On the other hand if we always try and keep the communal rooms and our bedroom clean and tidy, then our children will learn by example.

There are cases where children just leave things and never take them back to their room. In this case have a washing basket in the corner of the room and put all the stuff that belongs to them there. If it hasn’t been taken by the end of a week throw it away.

That sounds harsh? Think about it. It obviously is excess to requirements if they don’t miss it at the end of a week, and if it was important they won’t let it happen again, especially if you regularly clear out the basket.

During my years as a cleaner I have seen many children’s rooms where you cannot see the carpet. The parents tells me if the door is closed don’t bother to clean that room. Teenagers all the world over are pretty much the same. Even my daughter had a bedroom like that.

But that doesn’t mean because the children’s room is a mess so is the rest of the house. It is up to us to set a good example and make sure the communal areas are still presentable. Children will bring their friends home and quickly learn if they want to go into their bedroom they have to make it respectable.

It might take a while, but believe me they do eventually learn. And you will be proud of them when they get their own flat. Not only will the living areas look clean and tidy, but so will their bedroom.
