How to Deep Clean Your Bathroom
One of the most dreaded areas to clean in your home - the bathroom. Most people put off cleaning their bathrooms because it is a frequently used space that collects dirt quickly. However, maintaining a clean space is important to your daily health. Bacteria, germs, and other debris easily collect within this area. Here is our step-by-step guide to deep cleaning your bathroom.
Clear Away Clutter
As with any project, you always need to clear away any excessive items laying around the room. If you have makeup, hygiene products, and other things spread out on your counter, consider organizing these items. Buying storage for your bathroom items is inexpensive and helps to keep the counters clean. Utilize any drawers and cabinets you have as well, to store towels, beauty products, and anything you use regularly.
Start With the Top
To avoid cleaning areas twice, start at the ceilings of your bathroom. Wipe away any spiderwebs or dust that might have collected in the corners or on your light fixtures. This allows all the dirt to fall to the ground which you will clean later. Sanitize the walls if there is grime sticking to them, and don't forget to dust your windowsills if you have windows in the room!
Scrub Down the Shower
Tackling some of the large projects early on will make the rest of the bathroom seem easier. Scrubbing your shower/tub is a task in itself, and should be a primary focus when you are cleaning your bathrooms. Turn the shower on so that the walls get wet and spray a cleaner on the walls and floors. Let it soak for at least 10 minutes before wiping it down and rinsing. Don't forget to clean your shower curtains or doors while you are letting the cleaner sit.
Scrubbing your toilet should be the next step after your shower. This needs to be sanitized regularly, but when you deep clean the toilet make sure you use disinfectants. Scrub the inside of the bowl, as well as wiping down the seat, cover, and the tank of the toilet. Make sure you clean the entire surface on the toilet inside and out for a thorough, deep clean.
Shine the Reflection
Don't forget to wipe down your mirrors and windows with glass cleaner! Toothpaste and other grime tend to stick to your mirror and look dirty when checking your reflection. You can use the same cleaner for both your windows and mirrors to avoid any streaking.
Counter and Cabinet Wipe Down
Start with the counters, using a disinfectant to kill any germs that might collect on the surface. Spray your sink as well, and clean the handles and faucet to completely eliminate any bacteria. Once you have dusted off and sanitized your counters, you can work your way down. Wipe down any cabinets you might have before you shift to the floor.
Floors track in the dirt on our feet, shoes, and any other item we might have on our feet. If you have hardwood or tile, first sweep the floors (vacuum if you have rugs). Once you get rid of any hair, dust, and other debris, mop the area. If needed, spray a cleaner on the floor before you mop to help sanitize the space as well.
