As someone who uses a lot of homemade cleaning products, I tend to have very high standards when it comes to store-bought cleaners. If I’m going to buy a cleaning product, it has to have at least one unique quality that sets it apart from something I could easily replicate at home. It also has to be affordable, because the steep price tag of store-bought cleaners was what drove me to make my own at home in the first place! And finally, any store-bought cleaner I buy needs to be versatile—no single-purpose cleaners allowed!
With all that being said, it shouldn’t surprise you that I don’t find a lot of store-bought cleaners that meet those criteria. But a few months ago I introduced you to Powerizer, a product that not only meets all of those requirements, but also exceeds my expectations regularly! The world’s first 2-in-1 laundry and dishwasher detergent, Powerizer is a serious game-changer in my book. It’s made with all-natural biodegradable ingredients, so it’s safe to use while still being tough on stains, deposits, and other tough messes. You can learn more about Powerizer and how to buy it at this link.
But don’t be fooled by the “laundry and dishwasher detergent” designation, because that’s only the tip of the iceberg! To demonstrate just how versatile this product can be, today I’ll show you how to use Powerizer to clean your bathroom from top to bottom! This stuff works like a charm on all kind of bathroom messes, like soap scum, limescale, water spots, and more. But first, let’s talk about a couple of different ways to prepare a cleaning solution with Powerizer.
How To Use Powerizer For General Cleaning
In order to use Powerizer to clean your bathroom, you’ll need to add water to create a cleaning solution. There are two different approaches, a spray bottle and a squeeze bottle, and both work equally well. I prefer the spray in most situations, but I find that the squeeze bottle is better for targeting specific areas. (See below for a helpful tip about using Powerizer in a spray bottle!) You may want to try both methods and see which approach suits your cleaning style best!
Method #1: Spray
To make a cleaning spray, add one scoop of Powerizer detergent to two cups of warm or hot water in a glass bowl. Stir until the powder dissolves. Let the mixture cool down a bit, then pour it into a spray bottle.
Note: One of the active ingredients in Powerizer is sodium percarbonate, an oxidizing cleaning agent. Once it’s mixed with water, the oxidizing reaction will build up pressure in a sealed container like a spray bottle. So when using Powerizer in a spray bottle, just leave the spray top off for a few minutes before using it to avoid any pressure issues!
Method #2: Squeeze
To make a squeezable cleaning solution, add one to two scoops of Powerizer detergent and one cup of warm or hot water to a glass bowl. Stir until the powder dissolves, let cool, then pour into a small squeeze bottle.
Once you have your Powerizer cleaning solution mixed up and ready to go, here’s how to use it around your bathroom!
6 Ways To Use Powerizer To Clean Your Bathroom
1. Clean Countertops, Sinks, And Other Hard Surfaces
Spray the cleaner onto hard surfaces and let it sit for a minute or two. Let it sit for longer on heavily soiled areas (up to 5 minutes or so). Scrub the area with a sponge or scrub brush to loosen up the gunk and grime, then “rinse” the area with a wet cloth.
We used this approach on our countertops at the studio, even though we thought they were pretty clean to begin with. The Powerizer cleaning solution lifted a shocking amount of dirt and grime off our supposedly clean counters!
2. Clean Tubs And Showers
Spray down the whole shower or tub with the cleaning spray. Use the squeeze bottle solution as well to target problem areas of rust, soap scum, or limescale. After applying the cleaner, let it sit for five minutes or so to let the Powerizer work its magic!
After waiting, use a rag, sponge, or broom to lightly scrub the whole area. (I recently posted about using a dollar store broom to clean your tub, and I still love this trick! For all the details, you can read that post here.) Then rinse your tub or shower clean with your showerhead, a mop, or a clean, wet cloth.
3. Clean Tile And Grout
To clean tile walls or countertops, use the spray cleaner. Apply the spray, let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse the surface with a clean, wet cloth.
To clean grout, apply the squeeze bottle solution and let it sit for up to 10 minutes. Scrub the area (using more Powerizer solution, if necessary) then rise with a clean, wet cloth.
4. Clean And Deodorize Toilets
Powerizer is great for cleaning toilets, because it will clean, deodorize, and dissolve tough mineral deposits with ease! Just pour a scoop of Powerizer detergent right into your toilet bowl, then use a toilet brush to scrub the solution up onto the sides and under the rim. Let it sit for three to five minutes or so, then scrub again and flush. Then stand back and admire the shine! :-)
To clean the seat, lid, and exterior of your toilet, simply wipe it all down using the cleaning spray and a few paper towels.
5. Remove Hard Water Stains
Like I mentioned above, Powerizer works exceptionally well at removing mineral deposits and hard water stains. If you’ve been noticing limescale or other buildup around your bathroom, apply the squeeze bottle solution to them.
Let it do its thing for about five minutes, then rinse with a clean, wet cloth. Repeat if necessary on stubborn areas.
6. Clean Floors
To clean your bathroom floors, dissolve one scoop of Powerizer in one gallon of warm or hot water. Use this mixture with a mop to mop your floors. To rinse, mop the area again using a bucket of clean water.
The products you use to clean your bathroom should be simple, straightforward, and effective. So if you’re looking for a simpler cleaning experience without compromising quality, I highly recommend giving Powerizer a try. I think you’ll like it as much as I do! Click here to check it out!
