Your bathroom is usually one of the dirtiest rooms in your house, requiring frequent cleaning to keep it fresh and smelling nice. Use these bathroom deep cleaning hacks to get your bathroom cleaner than ever!
Make a cleaning checklist
Most of us probably can’t wait to be done cleaning our bathrooms, even if we’re not actually all the way done with them. For that reason, creating a little checklist before you get started can be pretty helpful. Although each person’s list will differ, it should probably include the sink and the faucets; mirrors; bathtub, shower head, and fixtures; toilet; and floors, including and the grout.
Basic bathtub and shower cleaning
This is one of the trickier parts of cleaning the bathroom. To start, it’s good to hit all the surfaces with an all-purpose cleaner. Let the spray sit on the surfaces for a minute or two before scrubbing it all out — and be sure to apply the spray liberally. If you have stains or grime that’s too heavy for the spray, throw a layer of baking soda in the tub and let it sit for about 30 minutes. After that, scrub everything with a rag or sponge. Do the same thing with the fixtures, shower head, and doors.
Basic toilet cleaning
The basic step of cleaning the toilet means throwing your toilet bowl cleaner in and letting it sit while you do the rest of the toilet. First, get your all-purpose spray and soak down the edges, outside, and rear areas of the toilet. Use a rag or a scrub brush to get all around the toilet — and be sure to use baking soda and vinegar as necessary if you smell any bad odors! After you’re done with everything else, you can use a toilet bowl scrubber to scrub the inside of the bowl and flush when you’re done. You can also pour vinegar in the tank to remove stains there. Oftentimes, stains in your toilet bowl come from the tank. White vinegar will help get rid of them!
This typically isn’t as bad as the other areas, but it still needs some love and attention. As with the other steps, spray the basin itself with your cleaning spray and scrub away, using the heavier stuff only if necessary. Be sure to use window cleaner or a vinegar solution on the mirror to finish it off!
