No one likes to clean the bathroom but everyone loves to have a clean bathroom. Instead of dreading it and dragging it out over time, why not roll up your sleeves, get in there and get the job finished in just a few minutes? If you have all of your supplies gathered together you could potentially be finished in abut five minutes.
The first thing that you want to do is collect all of the supplies that you will need. Keeping them under the sink helps but this isn’t an option with young children in the house. In that case, always make sure that all of the chemicals and supplies are out of their reach. Also bear in mind that you should not mix cleaning supplies and NEVER mix bleach and ammonia together since it releases toxic gas and could kill you. Supplies used to clean and disinfect the bathroom include a non-bleach spray disinfectant, an old cleaning cloth or rag, a toilet brush, a Swiffer and Swiffer cloths. You will also need a Windex wipe or a bottle of Windex and a cloth that will not leave lint on the mirror. An old T-shirt cloth or sock works well for this. A cup or pitcher is helpful for rinsing the shower walls that the shower head won’t reach.
Remove the clutter from the bathroom. Clear the sinks, countertops, and tubs of all items. Pull the shower curtain up and wrap it around the rod a couple of times to keep it up out of the way. Every few weeks you will want to take the curtain and liner down and wash it in the washing machine to keep it from getting moldy and mildewy. Proceed to spray the sinks, counters, bathtub and toilet tank, seat and lever with the spray disinfectant. Then spray inside the toilet with the disinfectant, trying to get up along the inside of the bowl. Most disinfectants will need to sit on the surface for a couple of minutes in order to effectively work. During that time you can use the Swiffer to clean the floor and wipe down the mirror with window cleaning solution.
By this time the disinfectant has probably worked so all you need to do is wipe everything down and rinse it. Scrub the toilet bowl thoroughly with a toilet brush. Turn on the shower to wash all of the disinfectant out of the shower, using a cup to splash water in places that the shower head doesn’t allow it to hit. Place what you need back on the counters and in the bathtub, wiping it down with a disinfecting cloth if you would like. Also wipe down frequently touched areas like door knobs and light switches.
At this point you now have a clean and disinfected bathroom and it only took a few minutes of your time!
