A Plan for Cleaning the Bathroom

The bathroom is perhaps the most visited place in the home, not only by the family, but by guests. It should be regularly cleaned, to invite with sparkling cleanliness and pleasant aromas.

The first step that people should take when they prepare to clean the bathroom is to empty the waste basket and get the Crystal palace cleaning equipment and materials ready for the cleaning, which is best done by drawing up a list and ticking each item off. Because nowadays people clean with disposable cloths, one of the most important tools is a plastic sack where the used cloths will be tossed.

Bleach is a staple for cleaning, and its powerful germ killing effect is especially appropriate for bathroom cleaning. The toilet bowl should be flushed, and then bleach can be poured, brushed around the bowl and especially under the rim. Then the bleach should be left to do its germ killing job.

Another group of bathroom elements that need cleaning comprises the taps, the mirrors, and the sink. In addition to the array of cleaning agents available, there are also simple tried and tested home prepared mixtures: a popular one contains equal parts of water white vinegar). Spraying the mixture on the faucets, the mirrors, etc. and then wiping with a dry cloth does miracles in way of removing soap drips and toothpaste spatters, as well as other stains, and restoring the shine.

The water taps are places especially favoured by limescale. To restore their cleanliness and shine, applying some mild bathroom cleaner is sufficient. Care should be taken when taps have a brass or gold finish. Removing limescale can be achieved promptly, by rubbing the taps with the inside of half a lemon, and then the taps should be rinsed. It is worth studying the manufacturer’s advice on cleaning the specific taps.

The next step is the wiping of the toilet tank, as well as the seat. Some wipes sprayed with the water and vinegar mixture are powerful cleaners. After the bleach left to clean inside the bowl is flushed, the toilet section is ready.

Replacing the towels is a necessary stage of bathroom cleaning. The clean small hand towels as well as the large towels left on the bar would also benefit from spraying with linen spray, or with some light body spray.

The final area to be subjected to cleaning is the bathroom floor. The rugs and bath mats should be shaken well and rinsed to make them clean. The floor should we wiped with a dampened cloth, and special attention should be paid to the corners, because they are the areas where most of the dust and loose hairs tend to gather.

Cleaning the bathroom in the above mentioned order ensures the efficient reaching of the final goal – a sparkling clean bathroom with each area properly cleaned and attended to. By sticking to the plan for cleaning, people can also spare time, which is especially important for those with cluttered daily routines and when guests are expected. One of the worst nightmares for people hosting guests is the messy bathroom, so don’t wait until the final moment to get your bathroom cleaned.

  1. I find cleaning the bathroom therapeutic. Am I weird or what, haha!

  2. Keeping the bathroom clean is really important and this tips really helps to make the bathroom squeaky clean.

  3. I remembered when I went to the US a couple of years back, my cousin used a lot of disposable wipes to clean her kitchen counter top and whole lot of areas in the house ; p I guess we have not caught up with their method of cleaning yet.


  4. I second the idea of using vinegar to clean the bathroom, we all have enough chemicals in our lives! The smell goes away as soon as the surfaces are dry but if you want a nice long-lasting smell you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil (lemon, orange, eucalyptus, lavender)

  5. I agree with you.. also I tend to put comforting scents aside from maintaining cleanliness.

  6. Great article for cleaning the bathroom, I view every video for bathroom.

  7. Very helpful tips to those who often take their bathrooms for granted! Hehe. We all need to keep our bathroom clean. Thanks, Pepper.

    I agree with a lot of the other ladies…vinegar is definately a great ulternative to harsh chemicals. Not to mention a whole lot cheaper! My family changed over to natural solutions for I just couldn’t stand the vapors anymore. I love vinegar for it’s not just for the bathroom but I also use it to get the oil out of my hair and wash clothing to get the bright and it makes the water soft!

  9. I was diagnosed with MS since checking in here last…Im wondering if the commercial cleaners I use to use has any baring on this? Did I go natural a little to late?
