The Best Bathroom Cleaners for Every Surface

9/3/2019 (Permalink)

Consider these factors as you read the labels of bathroom cleaners.

Suitability for cleaning surface.

You’ll find bathroom cleaners in two varieties:

  • Multipurpose cleaners can be applied to a wide range of bathroom surfaces from showers and tubs to mirrors because they’re formulated for use on multiple materials. They’re the most versatile and budget-friendly option because you need only buy one cleaner for the whole bathroom.
  • Dedicated cleaners are formulated (and labeled) for use only on specific surfaces, such as toilet bowls or showers; using them elsewhere could tarnish or corrode other materials. They’re a good option for deep-cleaning a targeted area.

That said, it’s perhaps more important to select a product labeled for use on the specific material you’ll be cleaning.

  • For toilets, bathroom cleaners should be labeled as safe for use on porcelain.
  • For mirrors, choose products for use on glass.
  • For countertops, cleaners should specify that they’re safe on laminate, natural stone (e.g., granite or marble), engineered stone (e.g., quartz), or ceramic tile.
  • For sinks, cleaners should be compatible with sink basin materials (e.g., porcelain or acrylic) and faucet materials (e.g., chrome or brass).
  • For tubs and showers, select cleaners meant for use on porcelain, ceramic tile, vinyl, or natural stone.
