Floor and tiles
This cleaning task is the most bothersome task as the whole bathroom is with tiles. But, by using this method this will turn into an easy task. Prepare the following mixture:
1 teaspoon of your dish washing detergent
1/2 cup of baking soda
1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide
Mix them nicely, and then use this mixture to clean the tiles and floor in the bathroom.
The washing machine needs to be cleaned regularly as well because everything that we put inside leaves a film of bacteria, mold and mildew. There is also the buildup of the detergent residue and hard water, which over time produce that grouse smell. Plus, your clothes cannot be well cleaned if they are washed in this type of machine; they can even get that stinky smell from the machine or get contaminated with bacteria.
Therefore, make sure to clean it by adding a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar in a hot water and then start the short cycle. Leave it to work for a few minutes, and then turn it off. Let it stand like that for around 1 hour. After that, turn on the longest cycle.
In this way your washing machine will shine and all the bed smells will be gone for good.
