The Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

No one enjoys cleaning their bathroom, but it is an essential chore if
you want to keep your bathroom free of bacteria and grime.
If you dread cleaning day, here’s an easy, 8-step checklist for you to follow.

All you need is an hour a week to get the bathroom sparkling clean!

 Remove your bathroom products


Before you get started on cleaning, remove all your bathroom products such as soap bottles, toothbrushes, makeup etc. from your shelves and vanity, and set them outside of your bathroom. This will give you a clean slate to work with. Using a microfiber cloth, you can wipe the shelf surfaces to get rid of dust, hair, and other dried muck that might have collected over the week.

Pre-treat all your surfaces

The next thing you should do is to give all the surfaces that you intend to clean a good spray with a bathroom cleaner. Pre-treating these surfaces will save you a lot of hassle later, as it allows the cleaner to soak into the grime while you get busy with other tasks.

Spray the inside of your toilet bowl but do not flush. Similarly, you can spray your bathtub, sink, and shower walls and let the solution soak. Consider adding the Natural Plus Bathroom Cleaner to your cleaning arsenal, as it is 99.9% antibacterial and can effectively remove stubborn stains, soap scum, and even limescale deposits.


Get rid of dust and dried dirt


While you wait, use your feather duster or microfiber cloth to dust any light fixtures and switches in your bathroom.
At the same time, look out for any dry trash that you can pick up and throw away, such as clumps of hair in the drain, or pieces of tissue paper.

Remember, it is much easier to clean anything once you’ve removed the dried dirt beforehand. You can also take this time to sort your bathroom products and toss out any empty bottles or frayed toothbrushes.

Clean your bathtub and/or shower

Now comes the hard part. The bathroom cleaner has had some time to soak, so you can get started on scrubbing your bathtub and shower. Using a clean microfiber cloth, wipe the bathtub in circular motions from top to bottom.

Then, rinse the bath and wipe it down again with a damp cloth. Repeat for your shower walls. If your bathroom walls have tiles or grooves, use an old toothbrush to scrub off any grime buildup. Don’t forget to clear the hair and dirt from the shower drain if you have not done so earlier.


Scrub your toilet


The most dreaded part is cleaning your toilet is here, but you are already halfway done. The bathroom cleaner you applied earlier should have had enough time to work, so go ahead and scrub your toilet bowl with a toilet brush before flushing.

Next, lift your toilet seat and spray it with your bathroom cleaner. You might find a lot of grime and stains, so be sure to wipe the rim of the seat thoroughly. Now you’re left with spraying cleaner on the outside of your toilet bowl as well as the lid, before wiping everything down again with a clean, damp cloth.

Scrub your sink and shine your mirror


The hardest part is over! Now, you can move on to your sink. Wipe the cleaner off the sink with a damp cloth, and any stains should come off quickly by now. Use a toothbrush to get to hard-to-reach corners like the sink drain. Rinse everything again with water.

Next, shine your mirror with a glass cleaner and cloth. Alternatively, spritz some dishwashing liquid and water solution on your mirror, and it should work just as well. Don’t forget to wipe down the faucets too, just to keep them polished and shiny!

Of course, if you are the kind of person that absolutely wants no water marks when cleaning your mirror, Natural Plus Bathroom Cleaner can get the job done with no fuss!

Don’t forget the floor!

You’re almost at the end of the checklist, but before that, you still need to clean the floor. First, be sure to remove any excess bathroom cleaner that may have accumulated on the floor after pre-treating, then give your floor a quick sweep with a broom. After that, grab your trusty bathroom cleaner yet again, and spray your floors liberally with it.

Scrub your tiles with a damp sponge and then wash everything down with a bucket of water. A trick to staying motivated and keeping track of your cleaning progress is to start from the farthest corner of the bathroom and scrub your way to the other end. If your bathroom is big and you prefer using a mop; instead, you can still use this sectioning method to ensure every inch of your floor is clean.


Clear the trash and rearrange your products

All that cleaning would have amounted to a lot of trash in your rubbish bin. Take out the garbage, and give your bin a good wash if you have the time. Dry it with paper towels before replacing the plastic lining, as this will prevent your bin from growing mould over the next week.

The final step is to return your bathroom products to their proper place. Wipe each item before arranging it back on your vanity, cabinet shelf or shower rack.

You’re done! With a regular weekly routine, you will be able to keep your bathroom consistently clean and avoid being overwhelmed.
