How To Spring Clean The Bathroom

Sharing is caring!

How to spring clean the bathroom – grab our cleaning checklist and tackle cleaning the bathroom leaving everything sparkling clean!

I know you’re probably thinking the bathroom is tiny it doesn’t need a spring clean but you’re wrong.

The bathroom can definitely benefit from a thorough deep clean and declutter at least a few times a year.A good clear out of cosmetics and toiletries that are past their best, making room for a few nice new things… Every cloud! 

Our spring cleaning checklist will get you through the clean up quickly and efficiently.

As you know I do try to use more natural cleaning products where possible, especially in family homes. However the bathroom is the one place I do use bleach and I always use an antibacterial cleaner such as Dettol multi-surface spray for cleaning toilets, taps and door handles.

Especially with young children toilets need to be super clean to avoid them picking up nasty bugs. All antibacterial and bleach cleaners should be stored well out of reach of children.

Again you’ll need to set aside either a morning or an afternoon to give the bathroom a good spring clean.

And, as always when spring cleaning, get the windows open wide and the music loud. Makes it so much better.

How To Spring Clean The Bathroom

Spring Cleaning tips to really help you deep clean the bathroom and leave no spot unscrubbed!

  •  Clean light fixtures and fittings, these can be a magnet for dirt and dust!
  • Dust cornice and ceiling features, use a long handled feather duster to do this and to knock down any dusty cobwebs that might be hanging about. Really get into all the nooks and crannies.
  • Windows – vacuum and wipe down blinds, vacuum window vents, wash the windows, I use the natural homemade window cleaner for this job. Finally clean the windowsills.
  • Cupboards and drawers – get out all the contents, go through them and sort out what you still want. Throw away any cosmetics, toiletries and medicines that are past their best. Clean the inside and outside of the cupboards. Put back the things you are keeping – arrange them so you have easy access to frequently used items. Spring cleaning is a great time to stock up your medicine cabinet essentials!
  • Clean light switches and door handles
  • Put all towels and bathmats into the laundry.
  • Clean tiles and grout – if grout is especially dirty clean this with bathroom cleaner and scrub gently with an old toothbrush. Be sure to rinse very well before using any additional products in that area. And wear eye protection to avoid splashing cleaner into eyes. Get our top tips for how to clean bathroom tiles here
  • Clean the mirrors – I do this with the homemade glass cleaner.
  • Clean the bath tub and shower – pay attention to the area around the shower caddy and be sure to shine the shower walls, use a sponge to remove any stubborn soap scum. You can also clean the drains naturally using soda and white vinegar.
  • Wash the shower curtains (if washable) and clean the curtain rail and curtain hooks with warm soapy water. Get our step by step guide on how to clean a shower curtain here.
  • Clean toilet with antibacterial cleaner – make an effort clean around the rim, and around the back and under pipes. Use a toilet brush and toilet bowl cleaner or bleach to clean inside the toilet basin. Find out what we thought of the Dr Beckmann Toilet Cleaner here (ad feature)
  • Clean the bathroom sink, taps and faucets – again do around the back where grime and dust can really build up.
  • Vacuum and wipe down all the woodwork – door, door frames, baseboards and skirting boards.
  • Vacuum and mop the floors.
  • Put out fresh towels and bath mats
