The bathroom is a place of privacy, relaxation and enjoyment. If you really think about it, we use the bathroom every single day for many things, such as dressing, putting on making up, shaving, and some people spend a considerable amount of time using the bathtub. Thus, it’s nice to have a shiny clean bathroom to use everyday. Read on to learn some spring cleaning tips for your bathroom.
The very first thing you should do is to get organized and have a cleaning plan. Set aside a day for the job. Then make a list of all of the things you want to accomplish during the cleaning. It’s important to be specific and detailed when making your task sheet. Once you’ve established and are familiar with the tasks involved, you’ll now have to consider what tools and cleaners will assist you in getting all your tasks accomplished.
You’ll need a bucket and mop or brush to work on the flooring. Other things you’ll need are an old toothbrush, towels or dust rags, sponges and bathroom and glass cleaners. You might also need a chair or step stool for accessing high windows, ceilings, or light fixtures.
Before you start using the sponge, you need to simply eliminate all the old stuff lying around collecting dust. Throw away all those make up and skincare products that are expired and you know you’ll never use. Recycle all empty bottles. Once you have a clean slate and have reduced the clutter, you can then start working on your floors, walls, ceiling, bathroom vanity, and bathroom mirror.
Begin with the most difficult part: working on your sink, toilet, tub, and any tiled surfaces. Scrub with a sponge and good quality disinfecting cleanser. Method is a great brand of environmentally friendly cleansers to consider. For things like the mirror, you can use a mix of one part vinegar, two parts water in a spray bottle. Take out all items stored in your cabinets, shelves, etc. Wipe down cabinets, shelves and other storage systems in your bathroom with a disinfecting cleaner. Organize all items back into your storage compartments. Rinse the sink, toilet, and tube with cool water with the showerhead. Don’t forget to clean your wastebasket by wiping it down inside and out. You may also want to wipe down other items, such as decorative items to prevent dust from accumulating. Finally, clean floors with a mop.
