Bathroom Spring Cleaning Tips:
These expert tips will help you clean your bathroom quickly and easily. Heck, it might even be fun!
Use green cleaners. Because bathrooms are enclosed spaces you’re more vulnerable to the fumes from traditional cleaners. Using green cleaners, and turning on the ventilation fan, will help reduce irritation. It’s also better for the environment.
Make it fun by playing praise music. It helps pass the time and the acoustics in your bathroom will make you sound great if you choose to sing along!
Group similar tasks. For example, if you have the mirror cleaner out clean the glass shower door and windows at the same time. If you’re cleaning the sink then clean the tub too. They use the same cleanser and cleaning tools.
Gather your equipment and supplies before you start cleaning. This way you won’t have to take a break to hunt for equipment.
Use an old toothbrush to clean the grout in your shower and around your bathroom sink and faucet.
Save cleaning out the cabinets for last. This is a bit more time consuming. Or you can manage this task after you’ve sprayed your bathtub/shower cleanser on. Letting the cleanser sit for a few minutes often make the soap residue easier to scrub off.
Work toward the toilet. If you’re going to be using the same cloth to clean your shower, sink and toilet, save the toilet for last. This way you won’t cross contaminate.
Spring cleaning your bathroom doesn’t have to be tedious. However, think of this; nothing is worse than a pop over from a friend and the thought of them having to use the bathroom that you forgot to clean! Implement the tips above and you will be prepared and ready for battle! Bring on the “pop overs”! LOL!
Once you have completed this portion of spring cleaning, consider rewarding yourself with a long hot shower or bubble bath in your newly cleaned room!
Wise words bring many benefits, and hard work brings rewards.– Proverbs 12:14 (NLT)
