There is nothing worse than having to clean the bathroom. Am I right? Bathrooms can be gross & disgusting. The more people you have living in your house the faster it gets dirty. I absolutely rely on these bathroom cleaning hacks in order to make the cleaning process more efficient (and less traumatic)!
After reading through these bathroom cleaning hacks, you will never clean your bathroom the same way again. You will be working smarter, not harder so you can get to better things in life (like cleaning out the car, organizing, and tackling the rest of the house)!
But in all seriousness, you very well might find yourself fighting with your spouse for who gets to clean the bathrooms, so you can leave the longer and harder chores to them while you finish working early and put your feet up to relax!
Bathroom Cleaning Tools
There’s just no sense in diving into a cleaning task without first gathering all your supplies – you’ll keep getting interrupted by needing to go get something else, and make the task take much longer than necessary (and feel much more irritating).
So what sort of tools and supplies do you need when cleaning your bathroom? Well, the complete list of needed supplies will depend on which of the bathroom cleaning tips below you’re using (we don’t need Spot-X for glass doors, for example, since we don’t have a glass shower door).
But as a general list, you’ll need the following:
- Vacuum or broom (and appropriate accessories)
- A good, dedicated bathroom cleaning brush (no sharing germs to other rooms in the house!)
- Bucket and tool for floor cleaning (mop, sponge, etc.)
- Toilet bowl cleaner
- Toilet brush
- Glass cleaner
- Bathroom cleaning products/sprays (will depend on your needs and preferences)
- Cleaning rags or a microfiber cloth
- Gloves (if your hands can be sensitive)
Round up all of your bathroom cleaning supplies before getting started to make this task go much faster.
The best way to save even more time is to create a “cleaning bucket” specifically for your bathrooms – keep all your brushes/tools, liquid cleaners, gloves, etc. in the bucket to just grab-and-go when you’re on your cleaning mission.
Bathroom Cleaning Order
This is actually a lot more important than people think it is, so it’s worth stopping to talk about it quickly.
Picture this: you’ve got a dedicated sponge or cloth that you use to clean your bathrooms with. Then you send in your teenager, and they use it to clean and wipe under the toilet seat, then the lid, the handle, and finally the sink faucet.
How clean do you suppose the faucet is now after that cloth just touched the toilet rim? Yuck.
(I don’t think you’ll be brushing your teeth in that bathroom until it’s been re-cleaned.)
Depending on your bathroom layout, adopt a consistent top-to-bottom and left-to-right (or right-to-left) approach. Try following this order to make sure you’ve got everything cleaned in an efficient, sanitary order:
