How to clean your bathroom

The bathroom is arguably the most visited room in any home. Though it owes its popularity to… biological necessities, it’s no reason to overlook it when it’s time to clean your home.

Step 1: Cleaning the toilet

First things first, the toilet. It’s not the most glamorous part of the job, but it’s one of utmost importance. You’ll need to suit up with some gloves and grab a disinfectant cleaner for this one. Of course, if you’re looking for a more eco-friendly solution, you can check out our homemade cleaner recipes.

Give that bowl a good spray and let it sit for a few minutes while you tackle the outside. Clean everything – the seat, the lid, the base, don’t forget the flush handle. You want your toilet squeaky clean.

Step 2: Cleaning the shower and the bathtub

Next up, the shower and bathtub. These guys get used every day, so they’re bound to have some buildup of soap scum and grime. You’ll need to grab a multi-purpose cleaner and a scrub brush and go to town on those walls and tub.

Pay special attention to any areas with mildew – you don’t want that stuff spreading like a bad rumour. Once you’re done, grab some glass cleaner and get those shower doors looking crystal clear.

Step 3: Cleaning the bathroom countertops

Now, let’s move on to the countertop. Toothbrushes, makeup, who knows what else has been hanging around on that thing. You’ll have to clear everything off and spray it down with some disinfectant cleaner.

Wipe it down with a clean cloth, and don’t forget the sink and faucet. Clean off any items that will be placed back on the countertop. You don’t want to undo all our hard work.

Step 4: Cleaning the mirror

Ah, the mirror. A dirty mirror can make the whole bathroom look like a cheap pub. We can’t have that, can we? Grab some glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth and give that mirror a good wipe down. Get those corners and edges too, you don’t want to miss a spot.

Step 5: Cleaning the floor

Last but not least, the floor. Grab a broom to sweep up any loose debris. Then, fill up a bucket with hot water and floor cleaner and get to mopping.

Work your way from the farthest corner of the room towards the door, rinsing the mop regularly. Once you’re done, rinse the floor with clean water and let it air dry.


So there you have it. An excellent step-by-step process to clean your bathroom quickly and efficiently. Remember, a clean bathroom is a healthy bathroom, and a healthy bathroom makes for a healthy you. And as always, if you need us – we’re never more than a phone call away.
