A Little Bathroom Magic

I have been itching to get to scrubbing my bathroom for a while now, but I haven't had the time, energy or arm strength to be able to do it.  Well, yesterday I tackled it.

 There was mould growing on the top of the walls and a little on the ceiling. A sign of inadequate ventilation!  Mould is now gone :D

 How disgraceful!  The outside of my bathroom windows are really dirty!  Window cleaning day is tomorrow.

 During a pregnancy dippy moment, I decided to paint the window and door frames this colour.  It was over 10 years ago!  And now the paint is starting to peel.  Time for a good scrub down, and soon we will repaint back to white.

 I can't tell you how sore my arms were after using this broom and some soap suds to scrub down all the painted walls.  The effect of nice clean walls was well worth it!

 No mould!

 The bad side where I hadn't cleaned/scrubbed yet.

Halfway through cleaning.  I had scrubbed the grout with some water mixed with Jiff.  After this photo was taken I bleached the grout. It is now all sparkling white :D

The only thing left to do is clean the bathtub and scrub down the grout between the tiles on the floor (which aren't bad, just needs a good clean where the steam mop won't reach).  Oh, and clean the outside of those windows!
