Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

Bathroom cleaning is one of the most important cleaning tasks in a household. The bathroom should be cleaned weekly. In our efforts to help you save some time and energy we’ve created a bathroom cleaning checklist (and list of supplies) to help you get the job done right.

Bathroom Cleaning Supplies

When cleaning the bathroom you want to have all your supplies in one place. The best thing to do would be to purchase a caddy or a tote to hold all of your supplies under the bathroom sink. After you’ve gathered all of your supplies you can begin working on your bathroom cleaning checklist.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Caddy or tote
  • Sponge
  • Rubber gloves
  • Toilet bowl brush/scrubber
  • Microfiber rag
  • Mini broom/dustpan
  • Glass cleaner
  • Bathroom all-purpose cleaner

Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

As a general rule of thumb, when cleaning you always want to work your way from the top to the bottom and from the inside of the room out. Grab out your cleaning basket, remove any rugs, and then begin with the following:


Empty Trash

After you’ve removed all or any bath mats or rugs from the bathroom you can start your cleaning checklist by emptying the trash. This is also when you’ll want to remove any dirty laundry and anything on the countertops.

Dust

Next, take your duster and work from top to bottom dusting the entire bathroom. Dust any light fixtures, the top of the medicine cabinet, the back of the toilet, etc.

Disinfect

Now spray everything down with your bathroom cleaner slash disinfectant. This is your tub, sinks, toilet, and counterspace. It’s also a good idea to spray your trash can down too. They can get a little dirty sometimes. Once you’ve sprayed them, let the solution sit for at least two minutes before moving on to the next step.

Wipe/Scrub

Taking your microfiber cloth, wipe down all surfaces you just sprayed. If your bathtub needs a little TLC, take your bathroom cleaner and spray it again and then use your sponge to help remove some of the soap scum and grime from it. Once that’s done you can take your glass cleaner and a clean microfiber cloth and wipe down the mirror before heading to the last step.

Pro Tip: After you’ve wiped down your surfaces take a dry microfiber cloth to buff and shine the surfaces.

Floors

Finish up your bathroom cleaning checklist by vacuuming and mopping your floors from the inner corner out. It’s best to use a microfiber mop on the bathroom floor to really make it shine.

How to Clean Your Shower Curtain

Notice some aging or molding on your shower curtain? Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you need to throw it away. You may not have the money to replace your shower curtain right now. If that’s the case, you can easily clean it and have it back to new in no time!

Cleaning the liner

You can’t clean your shower curtain properly without cleaning the liner. To clean your shower liner simply take the liner off and throw it in the washer using a mesh laundry bag. If you clean the liner without a mesh laundry bag be sure to throw a towel in with it to help clean it and prevent any damage. Either way, you can clean the liner at home and save a few bucks!

Cleaning the curtain

Using the same mesh laundry bag (if it’s big enough) throw your shower curtain in the washing machine using a mild detergent, a cup of vinegar, and warm water. Once the cycle is complete you can hang your shower curtain to air dry. Or you can also clean your shower curtain using a microfiber cloth and some white vinegar.

Cleaning the rings

In order to clean your shower curtain completely, you’ll also want to clean the rings that hold it up. While you’re washing the curtain and the liner you can begin cleaning the rings. Since these rings, are exposed to soap scum and dust it’s important to give them a good cleaning every so often. Grab a bowl (or use your bathroom sink) and fill it with hot steamy water and a cup of white vinegar. Let the rings sit for at least 30 minutes before rinsing off and wiping away any limescale or stuck on soap scum.
