The bathroom is the least part of the house you like cleaning, clean your bathroom with these fast and efficient steps.
Prepare and gather the necessary cleaning supplies for the bathroom. Make sure to wear rubber gloves during the course of cleaning the bathroom, to keep your hands from contamination and drying out from the harsh products used.
Remove all items in the comfort room. All the products on the shower or bathtub or on the sink, take out all the towels and rugs outside the room. Move out any items from the counter outside the bathroom. Do not forget to take the trash outside the garbage can.
In general, when cleaning a room, you always start from the top down. Get rid of the dust inside the comfort room. Move out any little side tables or movable storage cabinets to include cleaning the space under them. Grab a duster that has a long handle to reach and remove any cobwebs in corners, on light fixtures or in ventilation. If you can’t still reach the cobwebs, pull a stepladder to get up high. Once done removing all the cobwebs, sweep or vacuum the bathroom floor to pick up the accumulated hair and other debris on the floor.
If you regularly clean the bathroom, apply an all-purpose cleaner. If you have a serious build-up on your bathtub or shower, apply an acid-base cleaner. For an alternative, mix a tablespoon of baking powder into about a quart of 75/25 mix of white vinegar and water. Pour some bleach or other disinfectants into the toilet bowl and sink. Put the toilet brush inside the bowl to sanitize the brush for cleaning. Make sure that as you do this step, the door is open and the fan is on to ensure proper ventilation.
Clean the exterior of the toilet. Wipe the outside with a cloth soaked in a disinfectant cleaner. Do not forget to discard the cloth or paper towel you used. Scrub the bowl with the toilet brush and then flush.
Apply a scrub powder to the dirty areas, if there are lime and build up in the tub, sink, or around faucets. Damp that area slightly and sprinkle with scrubbing powder. Let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes to loose the dirty patches and make scrubbing more smoothly and easier. Be sure to read the label and ensure that the scrubbing powder you are using is an appropriate product and it won’t damage the surface.
Clean the walls, windows, and ceiling. With a sponge or a clean rag, scrub the tile surfaces you have sprayed.
Sweep and mop the floor. Submerge the mop into a bucket of cleaning solution, squeeze out excess water. Start with the farthest point from the door. Remember to rinse the floor with clean water to remove slippery soap residue.
Keep the bathroom clean by running the fan for ventilation, wiping down the shower after use, washing the toothpaste down and keeping the bathroom tidy.
