How to Make Bathroom Cleaning a Breeze

How to Make Bathroom Cleaning a Breeze

About 38% of people clean their bathroom at least once a week. Unfortunately, cleaning the tub and toilet are the most dreaded cleaning tasks for most Americans. About 42% delay cleaning, only cleaning their bathroom once a month or less.

If you fail to clean your bathroom, bacteria can spread and mold can grow. Instead, start using this bathroom cleaning guide!

With these easy bathroom cleaning tips, you can remain organized and efficient. Cleaning the bathroom won’t feel like such a daunting task. Read on to learn more! 

Gather Supplies

Before using the rest of this bathroom cleaning checklist, take a moment to gather the supplies you need. Save time and energy by creating a small basket of essential cleaning supplies for each bathroom in your home. You won’t have to lug around a big bucket full of supplies into each room.

You can tuck your supplies into the cabinet under the sink to make cleaning each bathroom fast and hassle-free. 

Consider building a list of supplies to replenish every few weeks, including:

  • Multi-surface wipes
  • Scrub sponges
  • Magic Eraser cleaning pads
  • Rubber gloves
  • Disposable gloves
  • Sprayway glass cleaner
  • Toilet bowl cleaner
  • Clorox toilet wands
  • A lightweight upright vacuum
  • Plastic storage bins
  • A Swiffer Wet Jet
  • Squeegee
  • Disposable trash bags

Save valuable time by putting extra trash bags under the bag you’re using. You won’t have to go to your kitchen to grab a new bag every week. 

Otherwise, someone might throw their trash into an unlined trash can if you fail to refresh the bin with a new bag fast enough.

The next time you need a fresh bag, it’ll be there, waiting for you!

Use Disposables

Consider adding a few disposable items to your cleaning supplies list.

For example, you don’t have to clean the toilet bowl with the same toilet brush over and over again. Otherwise, remnants might stick to the brush, making it ineffective for cleaning the toilet.

Instead, consider using Clorox’s disposable toilet brushes. They’re easy to use and effective for keeping your toilet bowl clean.

You can also try using Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Gel to keep the toilets clean. You can click these products onto the toilet rim. Your toilet will smell fresh and clean for days.

Make sure to remove the back label peel before applying the gel to the toilet rim.

You can also start using disposable scrubbers and all-purpose wipes. Try to look for multi-surface options you can use on glass, wood, granite, and other materials. Using these disposable items will ensure you’re using clean products each time you wipe down the bathroom.

Tackle Tile

Bathroom floor tiles and walls can retain dirt, especially around the edges and corners. These airs experience excessive exposure to moisture, leading to mold and water stains.

First, sweep up the bathroom floor, then mop. Make an effort to tackle the tile in your bathroom at least once a week.

When cleaning your bathroom, start from the top and work your way down. Then, you can sweep up any dust or cobwebs that fall to the floor. If you start with the floors, you might have to clean twice, wasting valuable time.

If you’re not a fan of traditional mops, which can retain dirt and bacteria if not cleaned properly, consider using a Swiffer. You can switch out the disposable wet pad as you move from bathroom to bathroom.

Otherwise, a traditional mop might drop a trail of water through your home if you have more than one bathroom to clean. 

For tile walls, you can create your own cleaning solution using one part dish soap and two parts water. Add an equal amount of vinegar to the solution to disinfect your bathroom. 

Scrub the Tub and Toilet

Remember, cleaning the toilet is America’s most disliked chore. However, the bathroom is the second cleanest room in most households. 

When left unattended, a bathtub can become unpleasant, unsanitary, and even scummy over time. Your bathtub requires regular cleaning, though it can feel time-consuming.

To save time, plug the drain. Fill a fourth of the tub with hot-lukewarm water. Add a cup of vinegar and half a cup of baking soda.

Then, soak a clean scrubber into the solution and start cleaning away the grime. Drain the tub and repeat as needed!

Don’t forget to squeegee your glass shower doors clean, too. Keep the squeegee on hand by hanging it in the shower from a hook. If you have hard water, cleaning the glass will minimize streaks or stains. 

Here are a few extra tips for cleaning your shower.

Wipe the Mirror

As you continue using this bathroom cleaning advice, don’t forget the mirrors.

Your mirrors can collect water stains, shampoo stains, mold, soap scum, and toothpaste splatter throughout the week. They need regular cleaning. However, sometimes stains and dirt streaks can appear. 

You can use shaving cream and a cloth for a shining, sparkling mirror without streaks. 

Unclog Faucets

If you have hard water, mineral deposits can block the showerhead and sink faucet.

Pour vinegar into a plastic bag and wrap the bag around the faucet. Soak overnight to unblock any mineral deposits. 

Get Steel Shining

Keep your chrome and steel fixtures sparkling by rubbing them with lemons. Lemon extract will remove black carbon and dirt, helping the fixtures look brand new. 

This tip will also fill your bathroom with a pleasant, citrusy fragrance. 

Check the Fan

Don’t forget to check the bathroom exhaust fan. The vent or exhaust fan removes bad odors and moisture from the bathroom.

Cleaning the fan regularly can improve its efficiency and the air quality in your bathroom. 

Try cleaning it every six months.
