Speed Clean Your Bathrooms

Speed Clean All Your Bathrooms in 15 Minutes via Clean Mama

If you follow along with my cleaning routine, on Mondays you clean bathrooms right along with me in your home. 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 clean and disinfected 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 no need to wash them on Mondays. Also, I do a quick counter check daily to make sure the counters are not too bad. This also keeps them cleaner in between as well.

Since we’re simplifying the season, this is a a great way to simplify a little corner of your home. Please note:ย  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?

Supplies for Speed Cleaning Your Bathrooms in 15 Minutes via Clean Mama

Gather your supplies – this is what you’ll need:

  • microfiber cloths (alternatively you can use paper towels, 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
  • toilet cleaner
  • 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.

Step One Spray Mirror and Wipe Clean via Clean Mama

Start with any 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.

Step Two Spray Sink and Tubs and Toilet with Disinfecting Cleaner

Next, move on to your sink, toilet, and tub 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 prefer non-toxic disinfecting cleaners – they work just as well and aren’t harmful to you or your family.)

Step 3 Swish Toilet via Clean MamaUse 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:

Step 5 Wipe via Clean Mama

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 and sink to avoid cross-contamination.

Step 6 Discard Dirty Cloths and Move On to Wipe Down Next Bathroom via Clean MamaPlace dirty cloths in container and move on to wiping down the next bathroom and the next until you have wiped down each bathroom. And that’s it!
