Do a cleaning checklist:

In order to make your work much easier, compile a checklist and segment your bathroom into areas such as the sink, bath tub, toilet, storage cabinet, windows, the floor, the walls, and the ceiling. This will also be a great time saver for you!

Get rid of all the expired products

There is nothing as annoying at looking at half used lotions that are collecting dust and worst of all have expired. Go through your lotions, soaps, body sprays, and any other body use products that have expired or you no longer use. Put away those products that are not expired and can be used another time

Empty your waste basket

Dispose of any trash in your waste basket and clean it well before putting back into the bathroom.

Dust the bathroom

Getting rid of cobwebs and dust from the walls, storage cabinets, under the sink area and any other areas is important. Remember to also dust the ceiling as well and the corners of the bathroom. This is something that should not take you long to do. After you have finished dusting the bathroom, sweep it clean before you can start using water to clean.

Clear the bathroom

Remove anything that is not stationary so that you have good space when cleaning the bathroom. You can find a place to keep the bathroom items until you have finished cleaning the bathroom.

Wash the bathroom linen

If you don’t have any spare bathroom linen such as the bathroom rag, a hand towel, and the shower curtain, you should wash them before you start cleaning the bathroom. Thus, you’ll have fresh linen after you have finished cleaning the bathroom!

Start with the storage cabinet and bathroom organizer

Remove all the items in the bathroom organizer and storage cabinet so that you can thoroughly clean them. Use a damp cloth soaked in soapy water to clean these items. Use a dry cloth to dust the combs, toothpaste, and brushes before replacing them back into their holders. Soak your toothbrushes in hot water to kill any germs on them.

Clean the bathtub

Your bathtub needs more attention when cleaning because it is a high activity area with constant contact with dirt, water, and soap. Collection of grime, and mold is common in bathrooms especially if your don’t scrub the bath tub well after every use.

Lastly clean the faucets and give them a new look too.
