A dirty bathroom is a big turn-off when you return home after a hectic day. You see, the bathroom is one of the most prominent sections of the house. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most overlooked areas of the house.
Giving your bathroom a quick wipe-down once in a while is fine. But going for a deep clean will truly help you get rid of nasty odors, germs, and bacteria build-up. Are you also planning to conduct a deep bathroom clean-up session? If yes, here is a step-by-step guide to getting a spotless, sparkling bathroom. Trust us, every effort made is worth the final result.
1. Clean the Clutter
First things first, remove all the unwanted items from the bathroom – dump empty shampoo bottles and sachets. Spray an antibacterial surface cleaner and leave it for some time. In the meantime, toss all dirty towels, shower curtains, and mats in the washing machine.
2. Dust and sweep
Take a duster and start cleaning off the dirt and stains from the bathroom counter, shelves, and racks. Check for cobwebs in vents, corners, and on the light fixtures. Once done, vacuum or sweep the floor for hair strands and other dirt.
3. Clean the Showerhead
You might be particular about floor and faucet cleaning. But all your efforts can go in vain if you forget to clean the showerhead. Take an all-purpose cleaner in a bowl and dip your shower head in it for an hour. You can also take acid-based cleaner in case of a serious build-up. Scrub it clean with a brush to remove all the dirt and muck.
4. Clean other Surfaces
Take some gentle cleaning solution in a sponge or a microfiber cloth and start wiping towel racks, baseboards, blinds, windowsills, and shelves. Make sure you handle sections like left to right or work your way from top to bottom.
5. Clean the bathtub
Thinking there is no need to clean the bathtub because it gets rinsed with soap and water daily is a huge mistake. You must clean it once a week to remove germs and soap residue. You can use water and vinegar or water and baking soda solution for this.
6. Clean the tiles
Tiles contain the most germs in the bathroom, right after the toilet seat. Therefore, it is essential to clean them once every few weeks. Many good-quality tile cleaners are available in the market. All you need to do is apply it to the tiles and scrub gently after 20 minutes. However, you must avoid using acid-based cleaners on tiles.
7. Finish the floor
Do you find cleaning the bathroom floor a challenging task? We can understand. Here’s an effortless way of cleaning the floor. You can either use a floor cleaning solution or go for a water and vinegar solution. Whatever solution you choose, just leave it on for 20 minutes and then scrub the floor with a bathroom brush. Don’t forget to clean the dirt that accumulates in the joints of the tiles.
8. Clean the toilet
Cleaning the toilet bowl isn’t as difficult as it is distasteful. Just make sure you clean it thoroughly from both inside and outside. And finally, pour some antibacterial solution, and it’s good as new.
9. Mop the floor
It is time to mop the floor dry with a vacuum cleaner or a wipe. Make sure you are wearing clean footwear to avoid staining the floor again.
10. Put everything back in its place
Put clean and dry towels, rugs, and doormats wherever they belong in the bathroom. Also, hang a clean shower curtain and put back your shower head. Last but not least, arrange back all your toiletries, and your squeaky-clean bathroom is ready to use.
That’s a Wrap!
That wasn’t all that hard now, was it? Make sure you use high-quality toilet cleaning supplies for this process. Last but not least, wear appropriate safety gear before you get on your bathroom cleaning spree.
