There’s so much to clean in a bathroom, most of it being rather heavy-duty. Spring cleaning might seem like a bigger job than you can handle. It’s true that there is a lot to clean for such a small space, but with a few tips and a handy checklist, you can spring clean your bathroom in less time than you might think.
Let start with some expert tips that will help you clean your bathroom quickly and easily:
Tip 1 – Use green cleaners
Because bathrooms are enclosed spaces you’re more vulnerable to the fumes from traditional cleaners. Using green cleaners, and turning on the ventilation fan, will help reduce irritation. It’s also better for the environment.
Tip 2 – Make cleaning fun by playing music
Music helps pass the time and the acoustics in your bathroom will make you sound great if you choose to sing along. Choose upbeat music that gets you moving.
Tip 3 – Group similar tasks and similar cleansers
For example, if you have the mirror cleaner out clean the glass shower door and windows at the same time. If you’re cleaning the sink then clean the tub, too. They use the same cleanser and cleaning tools.
Tip 4 – Gather your supplies before you start cleaning
It just makes sense to keep all your supplies and equipment handy and within reach. Plan ahead so you won’t have to take a break to hunt for what you need.
Tip 5 – Use a toothbrush
Bigger isn’t always better. There are times and places in the bathroom that require a small brush. An old toothbrush works perfectly for cleaning the grout in your shower and around your bathroom sink and faucet.
Tip 6 – Sort the items from cabinets last
You may want to sort after you’ve sprayed or sprinkled your bathtub/shower cleanser on. Letting the cleanser sit for a few minutes often makes the soap residue easier to scrub off. It’s a good time to sort your medicines and other bathroom clutter from the cabinets.
Tip 7 – Work toward the toilet
If you’re going to be using the same sponge, brush, or cloth to clean your shower, sink, and toilet, save the toilet for last. This way you won’t cross contaminate, nor will you have to stop and rinse so often.
Here is a checklist to keep you on track when you clean your bathroom:
