How To Clean A Bathroom In Five Minutes

Here’s how to clean a bathroom in five minutes and everything you need to make our cleaning plan manageable!

Before I start my 5 minute bathroom cleaning plan, I always do these three things.

Doing them really gets me motivated and lifts my mood. The way I see it, is that it’s good to feel good, no matter what I’m doing!

Before you start the five minute bathroom clean – do these 3 things!

  • Open the windows wide – fresh air will make the bathroom smell nice and get rid of any cleaning fumes.
  • Turn the music up loud – it’s good to sing as you clean, it’s a mood booster!
  • Set my timer for 5 minutes – and when that timer goes, I stop!

Five Minute Cleaning Rota For The Bathroom

In a 5 minute blitz of the bathroom I can usually fly through the chores below

  • Throw any dirty or overly wet towels and mats into the laundry basket.
  • Wipe down the toilet cistern, flusher and seat with an antibacterial surface cleaner – I do this using paper kitchen towels which I throw in the bin after use.
  • Tip some toilet cleaner down the toilet and leave to work – then do a quick scrub with the toilet brush.
  • Spray the bathroom sink with antibacterial surface cleaner then do a quick wipe over with a clean micro-fibre cloth.

You might be wondering about the bath/shower, right? Well that gets cleaned after each use by whoever used it so I don’t need to include that in my quick clean up.
