How to Speed Clean ALL Your Bathrooms in 15 Minutes
If you follow along with my cleaning routine, on Mondays you clean bathrooms right along with me in your home. (I also post daily reminders on Instagram and Facebook, click to follow along.)Today I’m sharing a visual of how I clean ALL of my bathrooms in 15 minutes. I have 4 bathrooms and can attest to this being the absolute easiest and quickest way to get them all cleaned in a hurry.
You’ll notice that I am not sweeping, vacuuming, or washing the floors. This is part of the time-saving magic of this approach. I vacuum all the floors on Wednesdays and wash all the floors on Thursday, so there’s no need to wash them on Mondays. If this is your first time trying this routine and you want to have all your bathrooms cleaned at once, feel free to clean the floors but it will take longer than 15 minutes. Also, I do a quick counter check every day as part of my cleaning routine and that keeps the cleaning time down on Mondays as well. Go to this post to see more about the Clean Mama Cleaning Routine.
Please note: This is not pretend or fake cleaning or making your bathroom look clean when it isn’t, this is a simple way to thoroughly clean your bathrooms quickly. Try this today and you’ll have more time for other things that really matter. Ready?
Gather your supplies and tools – this is what you’ll need :
- microfiber cloths (alternatively you can use paper towels or cleaning wipes, I prefer microfiber) – 1 for mirrors, one for each toilet, one for each sink, and a couple extras for tubs and showers
- glass and mirror cleaner
- disinfecting/bathroom cleaner
- scrubbing powder
- toilet cleaner (I use a disposable/flushable toilet cleaning system because toilet brushes gross me out.)
- empty container for dirty cloths or paper towels
- caddy or container to carry supplies from room to room
Clear off your counters and sinks and get started.
Start with the mirrors – spray and wipe clean. I use a glass and mirror microfiber for lint and streak-free mirrors. Keep this cloth handy and reuse in each bathroom.
Next, move on to your sink, toilet, and bathtub or shower (if you don’t use a tub or shower regularly, you don’t need to clean it weekly) and quickly spray with your disinfecting cleaner. (I use non-toxic disinfecting cleaners – they work just as well and aren’t harmful to you or your family. You can see my favorite cleaners here and if you’d like to make your own cleaners, my book, The Organically Clean Home.)
Use your preferred toilet cleaner and brush and do a quick clean of your toilet.
Then REPEAT these steps in each bathroom. Once you’ve done that, go back to the first bathroom:
Wipe the sink, wipe the toilet, and wipe the tub or shower – take care to use a separate cloth or paper towel for the each toilet, sink, and bathtub/shower to avoid cross-contamination.
Don’t forget to get the base of your toilets too – I wipe here last.
Place dirty cloths in a container and move on to wiping down the next bathroom and the next until you have wiped down each bathroom. And that’s it!
The simple step-by-step:
What do you think? Are you up for a little bathroom speed cleaning?
