If you’ve been following along for more than a week, you know that every Monday I clean bathrooms. Below is my complete cleaning process to get all four bathrooms in our house clean in 15 minutes or less. I don’t wash the floors because I wash them on Thursdays – I find that this really cuts down on bathroom cleaning time.
I like to keep my bathroom cleaning supplies in each bathroom, you might prefer to tote a cleaning bucket or caddy from bathroom to bathroom. You’ll need:
- your favorite all-purpose cleaner (look for non-toxic cleaners – they work just as well)
- glass/mirror cleaner
- toilet cleaner/brush
- microfiber window cloth (my preference for mirrors)
- 3+ microfiber cleaning cloths for each bathroom (1 for counters, 1 for tub/shower, 1 for toilet)
Once you have your supplies, get ready to move – you’ll need to move quickly if you want to start and finish in 15 minutes.
- go into the first bathroom and spray mirror with window cleaner – wipe clean with microfiber window towel
- clean toilet with toilet brush
- liberally spray down sink, toilet and tub/shower with all-purpose cleaner or disinfectant
- let the cleaner sit for a few minutes to completely clean and disinfect
- move on to the next bathroom and repeat (mirror, counter, tub/shower, toilet – liberally spray everything)
Once you’ve done this in all of your bathrooms, go back to bathroom #1 and quickly wipe down everything that you sprayed – wiping down the toilet and toilet bowl last (I use a couple new cleaning cloths in each bathroom to avoid any cross-contamination).
What are my favorite cleaning products for the bathrooms? I will admit that I am a cleaning products junkie – I love to try out new products. All the products listed are favorites of mine and are either used daily or weekly in my home.
