Steps To Efficiently Keep Your Bathroom Clean
When it comes to cleaning the entire house, is the bathroom the place you clean up last? As the bathroom is the place where keeps your body clean, it should be the cleanest room in your house. However, cleaning the bathroom often wastes your time and energy, so let’s refer to the following steps to save cleaning time:
Remove all items from their familiar places
For best results, do this step for the entire bathroom at once rather than one at a time. Remove all your products from the shower and/or bath. Throw all used towels and carpets out of the room. Also, remove any items from the bathroom counters. Don’t forget to throw away the trash bags and clean the cans.
Dust and sweep
To get rid of dust, grab your feather duster with a long handle to clear cobwebs in corners, lights, or air vents. If you are still unable to reach the cobwebs, use a ladder to climb up. Then sweep or vacuum the floors to pick up hair and other debris that may have fallen on the floors.
Use cleaner in the shower and bath
Use an all-purpose cleaner if you clean regularly, or an acid-based cleaner if you have heavy build-up in your shower. Don’t forget the shower track and, if necessary, the inside of the shower door. Let it soak.
Process other surfaces
Spray the all-purpose cleaner onto your cleaning materials (e.g. microfiber cloth, sponge, etc.) and clean towel rails, shelves, baseboards, doors, blinds, and window frames. Wipe it all from top to bottom, left to right for better efficiency.
Mixed cleaning solution for floors
Fill a bucket or a pot with warm water and a moderate amount of all-purpose cleaner.
Finish the bathtub cleaning
At this point, the cleaner has done much of the work for you, allowing you to gently remove loose dirt and debris. Before rinsing, it would be better to clean all walls, floors and other surfaces.
Shower and tub ready
Put back any removed items, clean them as needed, and then close the shower curtain or door. If you have a shower door, use glass cleaner to give it a streak-free finish.
Clean the vanity area
To clean the vanity area, you should spray an all-purpose cleaner on every sink faucet and countertop, then wipe them with a clean cloth. If you have any buildup in the sink or on a soap dish, use a scouring pad to loosen it before cleaning. Use glass cleaner on your mirror. A cloth dampened with water will remove dust from the cabinet surfaces.
Clean the toilet
If you regularly scrub the inside of your toilet, the all-purpose cleaner should get the job done. For buildup, spray or dust a special toilet cleaner, then scrub with a toilet brush before flushing. Spray the outside of the toilet with an all-purpose cleaner, then wipe with a clean cloth.
Wipe the floor
Dip your mop in the bucket of cleaning solution, squeeze out excess water, then wipe down the bathroom floor. Once the floor is dry, put the trash can and your freshly washed rugs back on.
