The way you clean your restroom should always be based on the kind of soiling you are dealing with.

  1.  For light soiling like fingerprints, smudges, or other sediment on the restroom partitions’s surface, a mild cleaning solution can be applied to effectively remove it. A cloth or sponge is recommended for smooth surfaces. For textured surfaces, you can use a soft brush to get into any cracks or crevices. Always rinse and dry the surface thoroughly after cleaning.
  2. For tougher soiling like grease, oil, crayon, or makeup you can use a mild degreaser or general purpose cleaner. Like with light soiling, use a cloth, spunge, or brush depending o the surface. Apply the cleaner and rinse and dry thoroughly once the stain has been removed.
  3. For soiling that is extremely difficult to remove, use of a stronger cleaning agent is recommended. This might include stains caused by  water marking or scaling. Bathroom cleaners with that contain acetic acid are the best choice for removal of these kinds of stains. As with the stains mentioned above, use a cloth, sponge, or soft-bristled brush with the cleaning solution on it, and make sure to rinse and dry completely.
