We are on to week 3 of spring cleaning! I love a clean house. It always makes me feel productive and rejuvenated. We have already completed bedrooms and kitchen, which are some of the most important rooms. Now we have moved on to spring cleaning bathrooms.
I don’t know about you, but I am obsessive about cleaning my bathrooms. I always have this feeling like they are a dirty part of the house, so I have to clean them regularly. However, I do feel like a deep spring clean is in order at a minimum of once a year.
During spring cleaning, I tend to go overboard on disinfecting surfaces and floors. With four children running about, I like to make sure that germs are kept to a small area.
I do try to clean both bathrooms at least once a month. This doesn’t include the daily cleaning that happens regularly. Even so, it’s nice to simply focus on this one room every once in a while.
I start with the toilet and bathtub and finish with the floor. It makes sense to me to do the floors last.
Let’s get to it!
Use cleaner to wipe the outside of the toilet.
Put toilet cleaner in the toilet to soak while you clean the rest of the bathroom.
Wipe the outside of the tub. Clean off any grease and grime on the edges.
Rinse off the inside of the tub. Put cleaner in the bathtub to soak.
I have one set of shelves for towels and bottles. Take everything off the shelves.
Wipes shelves down.
Rinse off bottles. Throw away any old or broken bottles. Make a list of any supplies that you need to replace.
Throw away any ripped towels that don’t provide any use.
Put bottles and any other items back where they belong.
Rinse sink off.
Fill sink with water and add cleaner to water.
Allow sink to soak.
Remove all items off counter. Remember to throw away anything that is old or needs replaced.
Wipe counter down with cleaner.
Put items back where they belong on counter.
The space under the sink is usually used for storage. Make sure that all items that are stored are checked for dates or usability.
Anything not useful should be tossed.
Wipe the floor of the pantry.
Place items where they belong in pantry.
Remove all items on the floor that would prevent you from sweeping or mopping.
Give the floor a good sweep.
Mop the floor with a disinfectant.
While the floor is drying, don’t forget to flush the toilet and rinse the sink and bathtub.
And that’s it! Easy! I have two bathrooms, but it usually doesn’t take me more than an hour to do both of them.
I tend to not store items in the bathroom, which makes it a lot easier for me.
Remember to turn on a fan in the bathrooms if you have it. Or open a window. I tend to use quite a lot of cleaner and you want fresh air to breathe while you work.
Let me know in the comments how you go about spring cleaning your bathrooms.
