Tips on Cleaning Bathrooms

Tips for Cleaning Bathrooms | Ordered and Organized

Cleaning the bathroom is a dreaded task for many, but it need not take large amounts of time if certain tasks are done regularly.  Here’s a breakdown of my bathroom cleaning routines (or cleaning rotations, as I like to call them).

Daily Cleaning

  • Wipe the bathroom sink and counter using cleaner and a cleaning rag.
  • Wipe the toilet using cleaner and the same cleaning rag.  Pour a bit of cleaner in the toilet, and clean the toilet with a toilet brush.  Flush.

Weekly Cleaning (30 minutes, one day each week)

  • Wipe the bathroom sink and counter using cleaner and a cleaning rag.
  • Wipe the toilet using cleaner and the same cleaning rag.  Pour cleaner in the toilet, and clean the toilet with a toilet brush.  Flush.
  • Clean the mirror with the appropriate cleaner and a microfiber cleaning rag.
  • Clean the tub and surround using a magic eraser and cleaner.
  • Wipe the bathroom faucets (sink and tub) with cleaner.  Wipe the shower head, too.
  • Wipe the curtain rod using cleaner and a cleaning rag.
  • Wipe any windowsills using cleaner and a cleaning rag.
  • Wash the shower mat in the washing machine, and dry it on the clothesline.
  • Dust surfaces such as shelves, any picture frames or signs, etc.

Monthly Cleaning

  • Bleach all caulk as necessary with a Clorox pen.
  • Clean all vents and fans.
  • Wash the shower curtain and curtain liner.

Bi-Annual Cleaning (Spring Cleaning and Holiday Cleaning)

  • Vacuum window tracks and screens.
  • Clean windows using window cleaner and a cleaning rag.
  • Remove any Delta faucet “globes” with a screwdriver, and clean them with bleach and a Q-tip.
  • Clean the shower faucet cover that protects my little one by soaking it in bleach.
  • Clean all shelves, holders, and baskets.
  • Clean all light fixtures.
  • Clean all cabinets and cabinet drawers.
  • Clean shower curtain rings or hooks.

Notes

  • I clean all the floors in my house on a single day each week so that I’m not dragging out the vacuum and mop every day.
  • I empty the garbage cans each week on the day before the garbage truck arrives.
  • I wash and dry all my cleaning rags one day a week.  If they are damp when I take them to the laundry area, I lay them out across a surface so that they don’t mildew.
