Cleaning your bathroom vanity

Bathroom vanities come in a plethora of shapes, sizes and materials, from quaint pieces made of wood to modern marvels in steel and granite. This is why there are many different ways to go about when cleaning this essential bathroom furniture.

Before even spraying anything on your bathroom vanity, do ensure that the chemicals that you're using won't ruin the piece - make sure that you read the small print on the back of the bottle.

For stone countertops like granite and marble, there are plenty of commercial cleaners with a balanced pH that won't harm the gorgeous sheen of these stones. You can also use a mild detergent and spread it gently with a washcloth before rinsing it with water.

If you have an antique bathroom vanity with delicate wood cabinets, a simple solution of water and soap can be used as well. Just be sure to dry it off afterwards with a soft cloth. For extra shine, you can also apply lemon oil onto the cabinets.

With these cleaning tips in mind, your bathroom vanities will not only be spotless and clean, they'll also last for years to come.
