Follow these tips to make your bathroom look like a striking water sanctuary befitting of a king!

Here are seven things and areas in your bathroom that you’re cleaning incorrectly!
1. Turn Up The Heat
Heating your tub, sink, and tiles just 10 degrees above normal air temperature can double the effectiveness of alkaline cleansers. Fill your tub or sink with the hottest water you can run from the tap and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing these areas clean.

2. Less Elbow Grease

Don’t waste any energy scrubbing a shower curtain liner. Throw it into the washing machine with a couple of towels, a cup of vinegar, and run for about five minutes. Let the towels and curtain soak in the water for an hour before turning the machine back on to finish the cycle. Hang to dry and you’re done with minimum sweat!

3. Clean Smart

Meet your new best friend – the microfibre cloth. These cloths are composed of ultrafine synthetic fibres woven together to create a static charge that attracts dirt and dust, so you can tackle dusting without using sprays. Best of all, you can wash and reuse them so the environment will thank you, too. Traditional cloths have plenty of lint which makes cleaning a hassle especially on glass surfaces.

4. Check the Bristles!
A recent study from the University of Manchester found that the average toothbrush contained about 10 million germs, including harmful E. coli. It is important to rinse your toothbrush well after each use and occasionally soak it in a cup of vinegar for about 30 minutes to take care of any leftover bacteria. Replace your toothbrush every three months—but save the old one; you can use it to clean hard-to-reach places or tight spots around the house.

5. Vacuum First

Think your vacuum is only for the carpet? Before cleaning your tile floors, vacuum or sweep to remove loose dirt and debris, then wash with a cleaning solution. It’ll save you time in the long run instead of scrubbing a filthy, dusty floor.

6. Look What’s Behind!
It is way too easy for urine and fecal matter to build up behind the WC (water closet), leaving an icky residue that’s hard to clean. Roll up a few disposable paper towels, dip them in antibacterial cleaner, and, while facing the throne, “floss” the back of the toilet. Let it sit for a few minutes and then “floss” again with a dry paper towel to finish the job.

7. Check The Hairbrush
Like sponges or carpets, hairbrushes trap unwanted dust, dirt, oils, and old hair products. Each time you brush with a dirty hairbrush, you re-deposit all the dust, dirt, and oils back into your mane! Remove all hair caught in the bristles. Mix a solution of 1 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of shampoo, and 1 teaspoon of baking soda, then apply to the bristles and baste the mixture gently with an old toothbrush. Now your hair will thank you a million times!

Fabric: Art, NappaTile, Concertex, Goodrich

Concertex’s NappaTile introduces the Art Collection. Incorporating padded and unpadded faux leather tiles with no repeat, beautiful gradients and mosaics can be created to fit any wall space with custom sizes. The combination of padded and unpadded tiles create a sense of depth other tiles cannot do while keeping a sense of warmth and luxury. Whereas hard ceramic, porcelain, stone tiles are normally used in the kitchen and bathrooms, NappaTile can be used as headboards and in living areas. The padded tiles are hand-wrapped with soft cushion which contribute to sound absorption.

Designers can provide the exact tile sizes needed so there would be limited cutting and work done in the field. They can also choose from over thousands of different faux leathers and faux suedes to create their own custom design. Tiles can be made in any size from 2”x2” to 42”x42” in ¼” increments, so a 17.25”x24.5” tile can be made if that is what the wall fits!

All the faux leathers used pass specs for high traffic, heavy duty upholstery use. Certain ones are graffiti-free which are ink/stain resistant, pass over 100,000 double rubs and is bleach cleanable which is much beyond the performance for high performance wallcoverings.

The collection can be used as an accent wall, art piece or wall mosaic. Tiles come pre-backed with 3M peel & stick adhesive for quick and easy permanent installation.

The Art collection is applicable to hospitality, commercial, healthcare and residential sectors.

Fabric: Aire Si, Concertex, Goodrich

26th September 2016
Aire Si by Concertex is a Silicone Hybrid, combining Silicone + Polyurethane to create an ultra-soft and ink/stain resistant coated fabric. Even with its extremely soft touch and matte surface, the coated fabric passed over 1,000,000 double rubs, ideal for all applications due to its durability and unparalleled hand.

Stains can be cleaned with just water and dry towel but bleach and other cleaners can also be used.

Whether the end user needs the softest, the most durable, or the easiest to clean, Aire Si is the answer. It is an extremely versatile fabric as the first three patterns introduced is a solid, leather and linen.

No material can adhere to silicone which makes it inherently ink/stain-resistant. This, however, makes it difficult to laminate silicone onto other material. With Concertex’s patent pending new technology, this was made possible.

Aire Si is suitable for the hospitality, commercial, healthcare and residential sectors.

Some subtle tricks to work some magic for your outdoor space

Go monochromatic
Believe it or not but a monochromatic palette works wonders in an outdoor space: think gradients of greys with whites; tones of blacks with whites; hues of green from leaf green to a lichen colour! Pick furniture in neutrals like white, ivory, greys or browns. Even an instant
Great news, minimalists: monochrome is all the rage. “You can pull off a polished look without overdoing it,” says Real Simple. White, ivory, or grey tables and chairs will give your backyard a modern, sophisticated appearance. For a low-budget makeover, try sanding and spray-painting an old kitchen set, or using monochrome pillowcases to cover outdated seat cushions.

Add colour
But if monochrome is not your jig, then hop to the colourful isle and keep things lively with colours, prints, patterns and shapes. Cushions are a great way to liven up an old outdoor bench, so select cushions that have colour and pattern to energise your eyes and mood. Colourful floor or hanging lanterns can be hung to add some pizzazz. Add a bowl of flowers for your table centrepiece to keep the mood jolly.

Spruce it up!
They say reuse, recycle and reduce and that should be your mantra when sprucing up old furniture. Rather than go to a shop and buy a brand new set, look around your house for items that look tired and under-used. Give old chairs and tables a new lick of paint, or perhaps, opt for some varnish to bring wooden furniture to life.

Lighting tips
A garden patio can look magical at night if you select soft-glow lanterns or string lights. Opt for votive holders to hold candles or even buy kerosene oil to light up old-school metal lanterns for a retro touch.

Tempt the eye
Sometimes you need not think too hard and long to get your act together. A favourite vase or glass container can be an immediate pick-me-up simply by adding flowers. Add water to the vessels and float flowers and leaves you can find in the garden for a personal touch.

Go vintage
Think of saving the environment? Then spend less, so look around your house for items with a retro feel: old glass jars, old wooden crates, grandma’s hardly used cutlery and plates. The list goes on! Bring out these once-forgotten items and let your friends marvel at them. A bit of yesteryear can also add conversation when the party picks up. Candle sticks lit on old wine bottles also help to create the retro touch. Old napkins which were never used can be brought to lift by pairing with metallic or gold napkin holders! Ransack your old cabinet or wardrobe and find out what can be used. You’re only limited by your imagination!

Choose bold patterns
Even the simplest accessories on the tables can stand out if you shop for patterns. Napkins take on a personality of their own if you choose eye-catching patterns in cheery hues. Such items won’t blow your bank account and having classic prints like chevrons, polka dots or stripes will remain timeless.
