Cleaning the bathroom has a bad reputation. It’s frequently moist, mildewy, and smelly. Furthermore, the bulk of the bathroom must be cleaned by hand—while a vacuum can be pushed around the living room and a mop can be pushed around the kitchen, your shower, tub, sink, and toilet all require manual cleaning, making tidying up this area feel like such a massive effort.
Though there’s no denying that cleaning the bathroom requires effort, it shouldn’t take you all day. There are steps you may take to guarantee that your once-weekly sanitisation takes up as little time as possible. The bathroom may be surprisingly easy to clean if you keep two things in good condition: the counter and the shower. Here are some pointers for deep cleaning the bathroom, such as how often it should be done and what you can do to make the process more bearable.
Establish a Weekly Routine
We recommend scheduling a once-weekly sanitisation of the bathroom, so pick a day that works for you and make a plan to tackle the space. That being said, if you keep the countertops clean and the shower dry throughout the remainder of the week, you shouldn’t have to dedicate much time to cleaning—all you’ll need to do on your planned cleaning day is handle the toilet, sink, and floor, in addition to giving the other locations a quick once-over.
We recommend removing everything from the countertops once a week and cleaning the counters, sink, and tap; rinse and dry them before proceeding to the next chore. Use a toilet bowl brush and a specialist cleaner to clean the toilet. To clean the base and exterior of the toilet, simply use a standard surface cleaner and a microfibre cloth. Sweep or mop the floor, and you’re finished.
Wash the Sheets and Towels Weekly
Part of keeping the bathroom clean is keeping the linens clean. If you don’t do that, you’re going to find yourself facing a lot of messes as your towels and sheets get dirtier and stickier. If you’re not washing linens weekly, you should take the time to do so throughout the week rather than all at once on your weekly cleaning day.
Create a Cleaning Station
It’s a good idea to designate the bathroom as your cleaning station, so you always know where to go when you need to clean. Recommendation: Use the bottom of the toilet or under the sink to store cleaning supplies.
How Often Should You Deep Clean Your Bathroom?
If you clean your bathroom regularly, you shouldn’t need to thoroughly clean it more than every two weeks to once a month. A deep cleaning goes above and beyond ordinary cleaning. Not only are you cleaning surfaces, but you are also cleaning drawers, medicine cabinets, and other areas. You’re also sweeping all the cracks and thoroughly cleaning and sanitising everything in the room.
For most of us, cleaning the bathroom is a huge chore. This is because it generally requires a lot of time and effort. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.
