The 7 bathroom cleaning tips below will have you in and out - and your bathroom buffed - in minutes rather than hours. Instead of endless scrubbing, let the cleaners penetrate, so that all you have to do on most surfaces is wipe of swish them clean.
You don't need to buy baskets full of specialty cleaners to keep everything looking good. With just four basic cleaning products you can get the job done:
Let the solution stand a few minutes as you clean the seat, lid, and outside of the bowl with an all-purpose cleaner and a sponge, cloth, or paper towels.
Using paper towels is the simplest - no rinsing is needed and there's no chance spreading germs, as you'll toss out the towels immediately after use.
Spray the glass cleaner on a cloth and wash the mirror's surface. Squeegee dry. Use glass cleaner to make the faucet sparkle, too.
Clear shelves and dust; spot-clean wall smudges with an all-purpose cleaner and sponge. Give full attention to areas around light switches and doorknobs.
Use a scrubber sponge to loosen and remove soap scum and buildup in the tub and shower. Rinse clean, thus completing step 2.
To make your job easier in the future, keep the squeegee in the shower or a sponge in the tub for quick wipe-downs of the shower walls and door or the sides of the tub after use to help prevent soap-scum buildup.
To keep mildew in check, open the shower door or curtain after use to let it air-dry. If mildew already has a toehold, scrub the surface with 3/4 cup (180ml) of bleach in 1 gallons (4L) of water; rinse clean.
Vacuum or sweep the floor. Then mop the floor clean. Empty the trash can and take the bag with you as you go.
