Easy Ways to Clean a Bathroom

It’s ironic how a bathroom is the place where people clean themselves and yet it is also considered as one of the dirtiest places in the house.  Do you even know how to clean a bathroom properly?

Cleaning a bathroom should be done on a regular basis. It should not be done once a month or once every quarter.  You need to clean the bathroom regularly because you use it daily.

The Dirt

The bathroom is where you wash away the dirt that you have accumulated for the day. It is also the place where you release the wastes that your body produces.

Here’s how you can clean the bathroom easily. Follow these steps and you will end up with a clean bathroom:

The Toilet

The toilet is one of the dirtiest things that you can ever have inside the bathroom. Make sure to always put down the toilet seat when you are flushing so that fecal matter won’t splash up.

Cleaning the toilet is sometimes hard for people. The thought of cleaning up poop turns people off in cleaning this part of the bathroom.

Pour some baking soda in the toilet bowl and let it sit for a few minutes. Then start brushing. Flush your toilet after you’re done brushing.

When brushing your toilet bowl, take note of the areas that are hard to reach. Use a smaller brush to reach these areas.

You should also clean the toilet cleaner after every use. To do this, simply pour some bleach on the toilet brush and rinse.

The Floors, Tiles, and Walls

Spray these three areas with an all-purpose cleaner and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Turn on the hot water in the shower and leave it on until the steam builds up.

Turn the shower off and leave the bathroom. Let the steam and the cleaner mix for about 20 more minutes and then rinse.

To clean the grout, you should dip a small brush or a toothbrush in bleach and just start scrubbing. Rinse the area with water.  Make sure the room is well ventilated.

The Bathroom Sink

To keep bathroom sinks clean, pour some baking soda or white wine vinegar down the drain. Rinse with hot water to melt the oils that have accumulated in the pipes.

Use a small brush or a toothbrush to clean the faucet. Baking soda can make your faucet look nice and shiny with just a few scrubs.

The sink is actually the dirtiest part of the bathroom. Clean the sink as often as possible.

The Bath Tub

After bathing or soaking in the tub, always rinse the tub with warm, clean water. Wipe off the excess moisture using a microfiber cloth or a soft sponge.

Spray a combination of half white vinegar and half warm water all over your tub using a spray bottle. Let it stand for 10-15 minutes and rinse with clean, warm water again.

Stop water stains from building up by rinsing your tub with warm water after every use. Make sure to remove hair and other debris from the drain to keep it from clogging.

Hand Towels

Wash hand towels by running them through your washing machine’s sanitizing setting. If your washing machine does not have this kind of setting, washing with bleach will kill the germs.

Avoid hanging wet towels near the toilet. Fecal matter can cling on the hand towel and pass on to your hand.

The Exhaust Fan

Use a vacuum cleaner nozzle attachment to suck out anything that has been lodged in your exhaust. Clean the exterior with an all-purpose cleaner.

Remove dust from the motor by using a clean and stiff paint brush. You can also use an old toothbrush to do this.

Clean your bathroom regularly to avoid grime and dirt from building up. A few moments a day can save you from removing tough dirt and stains.
