As you realize that a clean bathroom is very important for the health of your family, you should strive to keep it clean and sanitized.
Bathroom is one of the least fun places to clean. Sometimes people clean their bathrooms in such way that they just spread the germs and bacteria around and don’t clean the essential areas at all.
Things you will need to use during the cleaning: rubber gloves, hand towels, disinfectant cleaner, shower cleaner, window cleaner, broom, mop, toilet bowl brush. Of course, you may choose to use environmentally friendly cleaning products to clean your bathroom. Then, you will need vinegar, baking soda or lemon juice. It’s up to you to choose what cleaning solutions to use.
First of all, take everything off the bathroom and sweep. Be sure to sweep all corners of the bathroom, and don’t miss the area behind the toilet either. Then, take everything out of the shower and spray it down with the shower spray. Let it soak.
Now you’re going to clean your toilet. Put on the rubber gloves. Pour the toilet bowl cleaner around the rim of your toilet. Take the toilet bowl brush and scrub inside of the toilet. After using toilet bowl brush, rinse it under the hot water.
Take disinfectant and a rag and spray down the top of the toilet and the lid. Then, wipe down. Open the lid and spray down the rim of the toilet, all sides of the toilet and around the bottom. Then, wipe down. At the end, flush the toilet! Don’t forget to scrub or wipe down the inside and outside edges of the toilet seat.
Now it’s time to clean your mirror. Mirrors definitely add beauty to your bathroom, but they get dirty very quickly. When this happens your mirrors can be a real eye sore. To avoid this clean them regularly. Take the window cleaner and a rag and clean the mirror. Be careful: keep your commercial cleaning solution from getting to the bottom edge of the mirror as this can cause damage to the backing.
Now it’s time to clean the sink and counter. Take your disinfectant cleaner and spray down the counter and sink. Clean them using the rag. If you have soap scum stains in your sink fill the sink with bleach and hot water and let sit.
Then, wipe down the door handle. If you decide to deep-clean your bathroom, you should clean the windows and wash curtains as well.
Now take a new rag and wipe down the shower. Once your shower is cleaned, put everything back into place. And don’t forget to wipe down the shower walls when cleaning the bathroom. The last thing you need to do is to mop the floor. You can empty the trash can while waiting for the floor to dry. Once your floor is dry, put everything back into place. Now your bathroom is sparkly clean!
Bathroom may be one of the smallest rooms in your home, still it requires the highest level of attention. It’s very important to thoroughly clean and disinfect your bathroom on a regular basis to keep it sparkling clean. So roll up your sleeves, get out your cleaning products and tools and follow the next steps.
People think that toilet is the dirtiest fixture in the bathroom, but they are wrong. The bathroom sink actually has more bacteria and germs than the toilet! Use a scrubber and some all-purpose cleaner to scrub the sink. Get down to the very last detail. Wipe the sink with a damp cloth and cleaner. Rinse completely and repeat. Scrub the drain with a toothbrush. Don’t forget to scrub around the faucet and handles. Leave no spot uncleaned.
Shine the mirror. Use towels and glass cleaner to clean your mirror on a weekly basis.
Clean the tub and shower. Spray with cleaner and scrub the walls and the basin. Spray the entire area with plain water to rinse off the cleaner.
Now move on to the next bathroom fixture, toilet. Always wipe the toilet lid, seat and rim. Try to clean and sanitize your toilet bowl every week. Use anti-bacterial cleaner and bleach. Also, you may choose to clean your toilet using baking soda.
Clean the medicine cabinet. Empty the contents. Then mist the walls and the shelves with cleaner and wipe with a cloth. Scrub any dirty areas with a toothbrush.
Dust or vacuum the air vents.
Mop the floor. Using a sponge and cleaner diluted in water, start from the corner of the room and work toward the door.
Clean the wastebasket. Spray the wastebasket with all-purpose cleaner, and wipe it down.
If you decide to skip some steps, make sure your bathroom is clean indeed. Sometimes even the easiest cleaning procedures decide it all. In addition, not everyone has the same standards of cleanliness. So, it’s better to complete all the cleaning tasks and know that you have done everything possible to make your bathroom sparkle. And remember, the more you do during the week, the less you‘ll have to do on cleaning day.
