Cleaning your bath
|Step 1: You will need
- rubber gloves
- cream cleaner
- household sponge with two sides
- a squeegee
- paper towels
Step 2: Prepare
Before you begin, put on some rubber gloves and remove all bottles and other items away from the edge of around the bath.
Step 3: Cream cleaner
Dampen down the bath tub and the surrounding tiles with water .
Shake some cream cleaner around the inside of the tub and on the walls. Clean cleaner is ideal for baths and tiles as it is non toxic and won’t scratch.
Rub the entire area with the abrasive side of a sponge. Work quickly so the cleaner doesn’t dry out. Scrub along the grouting and into the corners
Spend a little time cleaning the taps, make sure you don’t miss any spots.
Step 4: Rinse
Wash the cleaner off with warm water, mopping of any excess with the soft side of the sponge. Rinse well, otherwise the cream cleaner will leave a residue.
Dry the tiles off with the aid of a squeegy, working from top to bottom
Step 5: Polish
Finally give the area a quick polish with a soft cloth or paper towel. Make sure there are no smears or smudges left.
Replace any bathing products around the bath and admire your handy work

Shower Screens Guide
A bath shower screen is an essential item for the modern bathroom, especially those short of space. Instead of having to make the difficult choice between a bath or a shower, you can have the luxury of both by transforming your bath into a shower. A shower screen facilitates this process by providing protection from splashing water, and keeping the rest of the bathroom dry. This guide explains the benefits of shower screens, how to choose one and where to buy them.
Benefits of a Bath Shower Screen
Not only does a shower screen enable you to have the choice of an invigorating shower or a luxurious bath, but it also has practical benefits too. It is longer lasting than a shower curtain – and easier to keep clean. It is also much more effective at keeping the bathroom dry when you shower. Instead of water sneaking past a limp shower curtain, the glass screen will deflect all water and do a much better job. This means your floor is less likely to get stained or damaged by the water, and your bathroom will feel less damp and be less prone to mildew.
Choosing a Shower Screen
Deciding on your bath screen might be quite an overwhelming process due to the vast choice of designs on the market. The best place to start is with an interior design magazine, so you can get inspired by the way designers and other people use them in their homes. Try and keep your bath screen in keeping with the décor of your bathroom – a modern bathroom needs a modern screen. If you have kids, go for a model that has a taller dimension to provide extra protection against splashing and leaks from the shower.

Caring for Your Shower Screen
Once your lovely new bath screen is in place, you will want to keep it looking new and care for it so it lasts as long as possible. Alkaline deposits fro the water can create unsightly spots on the glass, so wipe your screen don with clear car wax before the first use. This will prevent marks from forming. Wipe down the shower screen after every use, or spritz with a specialist shower spray.
How Do Whirlpool Baths Work?
In order for a whirlpool bath to work, the water in the bath must be higher than the intake valve. The intake is the circular, valve about halfway between the base and rim of the tub. The vacuum power of the pump draws water in, while the screen prevents bath accessories and arms, fingers and toes, from being suctioned into the valves. The pump’s motor creates force, which expels water from the jets at different pressures. While the vacuum strength does not change, the jet power can be modified. In many whirlpool baths, the ring around the jet turns the jet on and off and controls the pressure. The bath itself is turned on and off by a switch located on the deck or bath rim.
