Bathrooms. Ugh! Is there any household cleaning chore more dreaded than tackling a dirty bathroom? From soap scum and mildew to dirt and hair, cleaning this germ-filled zone is no easy task. That said, it must be done. Never fear – we’re here to show you how to streamline the process and go from grimy to sparkling clean in 30 minutes or less.
Gather your cleaning supplies! Gather everything at once so you’re not wasting time finding a tool or cleaner while you’re already in the thick of cleaning. For this particular guide, you will need:
- Multi-surface cleaning spray – we like Mr. Clean Multi-Surfaces Spray
- Tub, tile and grout cleaner – a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Foaming Bath Scrubber is perfect for this!
- Scrub brush
- Toilet bowl cleaner
- Toilet brush
- Clean rags
- Bounty DuraTowels
- Swiffer Sweeper with dry cloths
- Swiffer WetJet
- Glass cleaner
- Lint-free cloth
Clear your bathroom counters. Quickly put away all toiletries, makeup and hair supplies. Unplug any appliances and remove them from the counter as well.
Put on gloves. Use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Foaming Bath Scrubber to remove soap scum and grime from the tub, tiles and shower doors. Squirt toilet bowl cleaner in the bowl of the toilet, making sure to get all the way under and around the rim. Spray the sink and countertop with Mr. Clean Multi-Surfaces Spray.
Fill the sink with a few inches of hot water. Wet one of your clean rags in water, and then wipe down the sink and countertop well, rinsing the rag as necessary. Squeeze out the rag. Drain the sink and dry it and the counter with a Bounty DuraTowel.
Use the toilet brush to scrub the inside bowl of the toilet and the rim, and then spray Mr. Clean Multi-Surfaces Spray to clean the seat, lid and the rest of the toilet. Flush. Wipe it dry with a Bounty DuraTowel.
Tip: Keep a toilet brush in a holder filled with bleach next to your toilet to quickly freshen the bowl between cleanings!
Fill your bucket with warm water, and then dump along the sides of the shower wall to rinse off the cleaner. Once the shower walls have been rinsed well, wipe down the entire shower and tub with a Bounty DuraTowel.
Spray mirrors with glass cleaner, and then use a lint-free cloth to wipe clean for a streak-free shine.
Next, for a truly gleaming bathroom and no ugly water spots, spray the sink, countertop, porcelain bathtub, and all sink and tub fixtures with glass cleaner. Wipe it all clean with a Bounty DuraTowel.
Trap and lock dust and hair from the floor with a Swiffer Sweeper and a dry cloth.
You can use a Swiffer WetJet to clean the floor – its cleaning solution loosens dirt and lifts it off the floor, pulling dirt and grime into the WetJet pad and locking it away for good.
Put the dirty rags in the laundry and return other cleaning supplies to their proper storage spots.
You’re almost done with your bathroom cleaning! As a final step, spray Febreze ONE to leave behind a light, fresh scent. Now, really, was that so bad?
