Ways to keep your bathroom clean and hygienic


    Bathrooms are the go-to place for our personal hygiene activities. Ironically, they are also the most prone to dirt, grime, and even attracts bacteria which can cause skin or diseases like diarrhea from Escherichia coli (E.coli).

    As a brand that champions bathroom safety and hygiene through innovative hygiene technologies, American Standard offers solutions to keep your bathroom clean and hygienic:

    Keep everything organized. The secret to making your bathroom spacious is to keep everything organized. Store your towels in wicker baskets under your vanity; keep your cotton balls and swabs in decorative jars; have storage boxes for your bathroom essentials; you can also opt to have a functional wall décor, which you can also use as additional storage.

    Close the toilet seat cover before flushing. As E. coli usually lurks in water contaminated with human feces, make sure to close toilet seat before flushing. This prevents the bacteria from spreading into the air. You can further keep your bathroom clean and hygienic with American Standard’s HygieneClean System delivered by its powerful flushing techniques: the Siphonmax with its dynamic vacuum mechanism with side and lower water jets creating powerful swirls to remove both heavy and light waste completely; and the Double Vortex which offers maximum flushing performance yet minimum water usage.

    Invest in toilet fixtures that are efficient and innovative. Investing in quality bathroom fixtures not only add aesthetic value but also ensure that your toilet performs to its fullest potential. Start with American Standard’s ComfortClean. This revolutionary ceramic is glazed with zinc oxide that effectively kills bacteria inside the toilet bowl for the long term and beyond.

    Clean and disinfect bathroom floors. Make every bathroom trip a pleasant experience by maintaining squeaky clean floors and surfaces. To do so, sweep or vacuum dust particles, and mop the floor with floor cleaners soon after. Use cloth to clean the small areas. Avoid collecting germs and mildew in the grout between tiles by brushing with anti-fungal grout cleaner.

    Keep your bathroom fresh. The bathroom is most likely the one room that tends to smell pretty rough. It doesn’t have to be this way! Turn your bathroom into a spa-like retreat with room scents such as potpourri, scented oils or candles, or bamboo charcoal bag, which absorbs odors anywhere.

    Bathrooms, whether at home or in public, are essential for our wellbeing and day-to-day activities. With American Standard’s HygieneClean system, you can secure yours and your family’s health as it ensures your toilet is clean and hygienic.
