Clean + Organized – Bathrooms
•get all supplies in order (all-purpose cleaner, window cleaner, toilet brush, microfiber window cloth and 4 cotton cleaning rags (one for each bathroom) and a microfiber cleaning cloth for bathtubs and showers. New to the world of microfiber cleaning cloths? Check out the cleaning supply aisle at any big box store. Little known fact: the automotive section also carries microfiber cloths for even cheaper.
•go into first bathroom and spray mirror with window cleaner – wipe clean with microfiber window cloth (this might not seem like a necessary cleaning tool, but seriously it is amazing – streak free windows and mirrors every.single.time.)
•clean toilet with toilet brush and spray down sink, toilet and tub/shower with disinfectant
•I leave one rag in the bathroom – I don’t wipe down the bathroom right away – I let the cleaner sit for a few minutes to completely clean and disinfect
•move on to the next bathroom and repeat (mirror, toilet, spray down everything)
•once I’ve done this in all the bathrooms, I go back to bathroom #1 and quickly wipe down everything – I wipe the toilet last (I use a new cotton rag in each bathroom to avoid any cross-contamination)
•I like to use a microfiber cleaning cloth or Mr. Clean sponge for my bathtubs and showers – it gets rid of any soap scum and any water marks with a quick wipe
Notice that I didn’t mention floors – I wash all the bathroom floors on Thursdays when I wash the floors in the whole house.
