How to clean bathroom and kitchen taps in one easy step? 

India is a land of festivals and personally, I love celebrating festivals with my family. Each festival has its significance and it’s time to get together, celebrate and enjoy with the family. The family adds the required vibrancy and joy to the occasion. Major festivals like Haldi Kumkum, Ganpati, Navratri, Diwali, Christmas & New Year, I have my entire family including my extended family coming together to celebrate. 

Good food and mood are always the highlights for such moments. However, it calls for a lot of preparations beforehand concerning arrangements for food, staying, décor and ambience. This consumes a lot of energy and effort for the host. On the other hand, when you have all of them at your place, there are a few things you need to take extra care of – like maintaining hygiene and cleanliness. 

Well, yes maintaining good hygiene practices is always important. With people coming over the usage of your space only increases like your kitchen and bathrooms. Especially, with guests over, bathrooms are the most used place in your house. Increased usage and if there are kids in the crowd raises the probability of soiled taps and faucets exponentially. You don’t want to have dirty taps in front of your guests. In fact, the kitchen is equally used and soiled with gravy splashes on the tiles while preparing dishes. At this point, how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps especially forms a critical stress factor for the host. With a host like me, who has a penchant for keeping my space spic and span that borders towards a compulsion for cleanliness, it matters a lot! 

At this point, you are on the lookout for quick solutions which work and not a long procedure to how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps easily. 

When one has questions in mind our go-to destination is Google. I am no different. When you search for – ‘how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps,’ there are multiple options that pop up. A lot of YouTube videos that show up have some useful hacks and product ideas. Now I won’t deny that I did not try these out. In my experimental moods, I have kept soda, vinegar, soapy water solutions ready in different bottles and cleaned my taps. However, experiments are fun for short periods. When you have a pile of workload with a toddler to take care of, a home to manage and other things to look after you can’t do it forever. With guests around, even more, you are stretched for time. You want a “juggad’ as we say in Hindi or a solution at the snap of your hand. 

So how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps, simple by using my saviour, my buddy – Cif cream. The name may sound long but the action is quick 😊 

How Cif became my saviour and my first choice for how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps effectively 

  • As I shared, Google hacks are effective but not long-lasting. I had to search for a product that works within time. Whether I have guests at home or not, I must manage my time skillfully. I tried products some worked but required a lot of effort while some failed.  
  • Although, I was disheartened but kept searching for a good product for how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps easily. I saw Cif abrasive surface cleaner cream pop up while shopping for my monthly groceries on Amazon. It looked like a promising product with some great product attributes. But when you have burnt your hand with multiple products you never stop doubting. To give it a try I did buy it, with a question in mind what if this product works. I gave in to the urge and bought it.  
  • I received my parcel; my product was in my hands. The product works well in the kitchen and bathrooms as written on the package. Well, in my mind the question was how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps so I first tried the product on the taps and faucets.  
  • Post usage I had a satisfied smile as my taps and faucets were shining within a few minutes of usage and negligible efforts. Not much rinsing, not much of scrubbing just wiping away all the soiled portions in a jiffy. 
  • I used it for a few months to firm up my mind about whether the product is really good or not. I used it extensively in Diwali and New Year get-togethers when my full family had turned up at my home to see whether my dilemma of how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps is managed by this product. It passed with flying colours.  
  • With my few months of usage and consistent results every time, this product became my saviour and first choice for how to clean bathroom and kitchen taps effectively.
