Besides laundry there is one chore that I dread doing that needs to be done on a regular basis – bathroom cleaning. I never really realized just how bad it could be until my husband and his step-son moved in. I’m pretty sure for the first six months I cleaned the entire bathroom every time they were done using it! According the Scrubbing Bubbles® Dirty Work Index, two out of every five men admit to peeing in the shower?? EWW! Or how many of them MISS the toilet all together? My 6 year old decided to take it upon himself to see how far away he could stand away from the toilet and still make it in. I learned this weeks after wondering if my toilet had a leak since I was constantly cleaning up a mess. He decided to inform me he can stand all the way back to the wall!
Or when my girls decide to beautify themselves, and there is hair, make-up, and nail polish in places in my bathroom that I have NO clue on how they got there!
So as you can imagine, I was cleaning the bathroom a lot, so I learned to get it done in an efficient, quick manner. So I decided to share my tips with you in hopes that you can enjoy more time out of the bathroom, than in.
Dust & Sweep: Grab a duster with a long handle and remove any cobwebs in hard to reach places such as lights and vents. Dust all the cobwebs and dirt to the floor, then sweep the floors to pick up all the loose dirt, hairs and other ‘stuff’ that may make its way to the floors. Don’t forget behind the door, and especially the toilet.
Take Everything Down & Out: To make sure you get the place spick and span, remove everything from the sinks, showers and bathtubs. Dump the dirty towels & rugs into a basket, and place all your shampoos, conditioners, face washers, and pretty ornaments in your bathroom OUT! It makes it a lot easier to get everything clean if everything is out of the way!
Apply Cleaners to Shower, Sink, Bathtub and Toilet, and well EVERYTHING: I use nothing except Scrubbing Bubbles® Multi Surface Bathroom Cleaner. It expands to hard-to-reach places. It is hard on water stains, soap scum and dirt. I clean all Bathroom surfaces with Scrubbing Bubbles®. Towel racks, shelves, baseboards, doors, blinds, window sills, etc.
