Professional Bathroom Cleaning Tips
A bathroom isn’t just a place where you get clean. It can be a sanctuary where you can soak your troubles away. Big fluffy towels, soft music and perhaps a scented candle means that you can relax with the best of them.
But not if your bathroom is dirty! Cleaning a dirty bathroom is not something to look forward to, but think of how happy you will be when the bathroom cleaning is over.
Cleaning the bathroom isn’t much work if it is done correctly. If you wait until your bathroom is really disgusting, it will take you longer than if you do a regular upkeep.
Here are some bathroom cleaning tips straight from the maids at Mrs. Clean.
Cleaning the Bathroom
To get started, you should do a thorough cleaning of your bathroom. After this is done, all that will be necessary is regular upkeep and a good thorough cleaning once a month or as needed.
Have bathroom cleansers such as disinfectant and soap scum cleaners available before you tackle the job. It is a good idea to have all the products you use in one central location (we carry ours in a tote bucket) so that you can just go to it and bring it with you through the house.
Pick up the Laundry
Begin by picking up the dirty laundry. This includes clothes, dirty towels, and shake out the rugs.
Pick up the Trash
Pick up any garbage or trash and then vacuum or sweep the floor. Save the mopping for the very last.
Clean Countertops, Mirrors & Sinks
Clean the counter tops and clean the mirrors.
Use a good glass cleaner to avoid streaks. Spray or wipe antibacterial cleaner on the sinks and the countertops. Wipe the chrome with a clean rag to shine it.
Cleaning the Toilet
Now clean the toilet. Use bleach or Comet ® and pour a cup into the toilet bowl. Let sit for a few minutes.
While that works on the inside, clean around the toilet. Spray the tank, rim, outside the bowl, the seat and the top of the toilet with disinfectant or antibacterial cleaner.
Go back to the inside of the toilet and scrub it down with a brush, hitting the rim as well. Now take a towel or cleaning cloth and wipe down all those spots you just sprayed and wipe it dry.
Cleaning the Bathtub & Shower
Spray a heavy duty cleanser like Tilex ® or Kaboom ® and let it sit to work on the soap scum. Wait about 15 minutes and scrub until the mildew, soap scum, or dirt is gone.
Once this is done, use a spray cleaner after every use in the shower or bath to keep it clean. Shine the chrome with a clean rag.
Mop the Floor
Now you can mop the floor . Use a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water. Vinegar leaves no residue. It is a mold and mildew killer and also a natural deodorizer. (If you have marble floors, do not use vinegar. Use plain water instead.) Put the rugs back down.
