Quick and easy tips that will keep your bathroom clean, fresh and ready to use.
Bathroom cleaning routine
- Every time you use the bath/shower give it a quick spray and wipe down with a soft sponge. This will keep soap scum in check and also leave it sparkling clean ready for the next use.
- Every day take just a couple of minutes to do a speedy wipe and swipe of the toilet and wash basin. Use disposable antibacterial wipes to cut time. Take a wipe and quickly wipe down the wash basin and taps then using the same wipe move on the the toilet, wiping the flusher and seat.
- Every week do a thorough clean of the bathroom, this will only take you 15-20 minutes if you keep on top of cleaning up as you go. For a printable checklist head over to our Weekly Housework Routine.
Bathroom cleaning tips
- Fresh air – keep the bathroom smelling and feeling fresh by opening the windows wide at least once a day and giving it a really good air.
