Considering the fact that it’s exposed to humidity 24/7, the place we go to clean ourselves isn’t exactly the cleanest room in the house. Sure, you might not think of cleaning your bathroom the same way you’d do about cleaning your kitchen, but that doesn’t make it any less important. After all, this is the place where you begin and end your day, and any guest that may come to visit will definitely judge you by the state it’s in. So yeah, for the sake of feeling good and making sure people don’t think any less of you, you need to clean that bathroom as often as possible. While cleaning of any kind might give you headaches, cleaning the bathroom can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
STEP 1 – Prepare the Scene
Step one is dedicated to cleaning up any clutter you have lying around your bathroom. Put your makeup back where it belongs, toss away the empty bottles of shampoo and get rid of anything you no longer use. In a best case scenario, this step will only take you a minute. If it takes anything longer than 5 minutes, it means you’re keeping too much supplies in your bathroom that you really don’t need. With everything out of the way, your vanity or bathroom counters won’t collect as much dust and it will be much easier to scrub them off.
STEP 2 – Bring Out Your Weapons
Once all your bathroom surfaces are free of clutter, you can proceed and bring out your arsenal of bathroom cleaning products. A lot of the time and effort needed to clean up this space can be reduced to minimum if you have quality bathroom cleaning products. So, arm yourself with a good toilet brush, a mop, a microfibre cloth, and a toilet cleaner, an all purpose cleaner, and a glass solution. If possible, try to keep most of your cleaning tools and products right there in the bathroom, as this way it’s more likely that you will use them daily than if you kept them in the kitchen under the sink for example.
STEP 3 – Attack!
Spray a generous amount of your all purpose cleaner over the dirtiest spots so that it can properly soak in and disintegrate the dirt while you’re off doing other tasks, like changing towels or putting your shower curtain in the washing machine. Use bleach every now and then to give the toilet bowl a proper disinfection and remove the bad odour. Let the products sit for 5 minutes and get out of the room so that you don’t breathe in any fumes. Then wipe the floor with a mop, brush the toilet bowl and run a clean cloth over the various surfaces you sprayed up. Use a good glass cleaner on the mirrors and windows and rub them in circles with a microfibre cloth. The key to saving time and properly cleaning your bathroom is to do it consistently. Regularly doing small things like spraying your tiles with a general purpose cleanser can put of the need to scrub off disgusting grout for much much later.
