Tips For Cleaning Your Bathroom with Eraser Sponges

Woman cleaning bathroom with eraser products

For most homeowners, the bathroom can be quite the chore. With all the nooks and crannies, tile grout, and scuff marks, it can be a real pain to clean every area. The bathroom is a room that deals with foot traffic all day, and half the night. This can take a heavy toll on floors, walls, and fixtures.

We offer you a few helpful tips on how to thoroughly clean your bathroom with the eraser sponge.

It is best to clean bathroom items first, that will not require immediate use.

Therefore, the toilet should be last.

  1. Wear cleaning gloves
  • As you should when cleaning any room in the house; wearing rubber gloves while cleaning with eraser sponges, keeps your hands clean and protects your skin from drying out from too much contact with the cleaning water.
  1. De-clutter
  • Clear the bathroom of laundry, wet towels, kid’s toys, toothbrushes, and other toiletries to expose all surfaces that require cleaning.
  1. You only need a small amount of water
  • The eraser sponge requires only a small amount of water to active the melamine foam, which is its active cleaning agent.
  • Filling a standard bucket with water is all you will need for the entire bathroom.
  1. Begin with the tub/shower areas
  • If you have a separate shower stall, grab your eraser sponge and water. Then, begin removing any marks, scuffs, and soap grime from the walls. Clean the shower floor at the end, so that you are not walking over it as you clean the rest of the shower area. Run the shower water at the very end to get rid of any leftover cleaning solution.
  • If you have a tub with a shower installed in it; clean the wall tiles first with the eraser sponge, then the tub basin; and again, use the shower sprayer to rinse thoroughly.
  1. Now move on to the sink area
  • Dampen your eraser sponge or run some water in the sink.
  • Focus on any dark marks first, then once they are removed; thoroughly go over the entire sink area, and rinse afterwards.
  1. Clean the floors last
  • With your bucket of water in hand, wet the eraser sponge, and begin cleaning dirt from in-between the floor tiles. After the floor tile grout has been cleaned, give the bathroom floor a complete once-over to remove any excess dirt and debris.

You no longer need to stress over cleaning your bathroom. With the eraser sponge from Sponge Outlet, you can clean your bathroom thoroughly with ease. Our eraser sponges can be used more than once, and they have the ability to clean your home inside and out. Contact Sponge Outlet at 877-776-6430 today or visit us online for more information!

Cleaning Your Boat When Dry Docking

Eraser sponge products for cleaning boat

Summer is quickly approaching, which means it’s time to get that boat out on the water again for the summer months. It’s always enjoyable to spend the weekend days out on the water in your boat with friends and family, but there’s one important thing to remember, always clean after you go out on the water.

To ensure a long life for your boat, it’s crucial that you make sure to scrub down the boat if you plan to dry dock it.

Dry Docking Helps to Extend the Life of the Boat

Dry docking your boat is always a better option than leaving it docked in the water for the summer. If you plan to keep it as clean as possible, dry docking will ensure you won’t gather any nasty grime from the water when it’s sitting in it.

Using Sponge Outlet’s Cleaning Products:

Even if you’re dry docking your boat, it’s important to clean it after you take the boat out for a long summer day on the water.

Our monster scrubby sponges are some of the best cleaning products you can use to clean your boat after a day out. By just running the sponge under water, the scrubby will do the rest of the work to get rid of the grime, grease, and other debris from the water.

Our microfiber towels also work well with almost any surface. They do not scratch, so you can use them on your boat. All you have to do is wet the towel and get to work getting rid of the grime on the boat after a day out on the water.

The Super S Detail Melamine Foam Eraser Sponge is one of the best options for cleaning your boat’s exterior after taking it out. The proper way to use this sponge would be to test out on an inconspicuous area before applying it to your boat’s surface because it may cause dulling of painted or glossy surfaces.

The Benefits of Cleaning Your Boat After Taking It Out on the Water

A clean boat is definitely a happy boat, and a clean boat leaves the boat owner happy as well. Owning a boat can be a chore, but when you take the time to scrub down your boat after you bring it out of the water, your investment will pay off in the end with a long life for your boat.

Keeping the Salt Stains Off Your Car and Clothes

Cleaning your shoes and items during the winter months

The winter season brings us snowy and cold weather. We already know that, and we also know that salt can play a major role in keeping items we own dirty throughout the winter. Salt is used to de-ice the roads, but it also likes to attach itself to our cars, clothes, and boots. Some of the biggest problems that we have to face throughout the winter are the salt stains that coat our cars and boots.

Whether you’re out shoveling your driveway or on your way to work, it is inevitable that you will get snow – and salt – on your footwear and vehicle on a daily basis during the winter season.

Sponge Outlet has a few cleaning tricks to make sure your car, as well as your boots are clear of the salt stains, so you won’t create more of a mess in your home or car.

Cleaning Vehicles of Salt

The salt stains that coat your vehicle aren’t just an unattractive nuisance; they can actually do a lot of damage to your paint job.

  • To keep your car looking its best, we recommend spot cleaning your vehicle with a microfiber towel dipped in a mixture of water and vinegar.

This cleaning solution is gentle on your vehicle’s paint but tough on salt, and the microfiber towel will keep any scratches from occurring as you wipe the car down.

Removing Salt from Footwear

Waterproofing your boots will keep them from getting wet throughout the winter months, but they’re not full proof on keeping the salt stains off the boots. There are a few different techniques for de-salting footwear, but the Instant Erase Shoe/Sneaker Cleaner provided by us is the best option to clean your footwear during the winter season.

This cleaner is tough on dirt without leaving behind residue that will harm your shoes. You can expect your footwear to last much longer throughout the years if you use this product to clean your shoes during the winter season. It can be a pain to clean your shoes constantly during the winter, but the Instant Erase Shoe/Sneaker Cleaner makes it that much easier.
