The bathroom is an essential part of your home that must be kept clean at all times. If you want altogether to avoid germs, molds, and unpleasant smells, you must be consistent with cleaning. Although it might seem time-consuming, it’s actually the opposite. With the tips in this article,  keeping your bathroom clean on a regular basis will be a piece of cake.

1 – Clean it regularly

Spend at least ten to twenty minutes maintaining your bathroom. Scrub a bath or free-standing shower today, and sink the next day. Clean the mirror at least every other day to prevent water stains. Simply mix water with vinegar in a spray bottle, spray the mixture all over the mirror, and leave it for about 20min. Wipe with a clean microfiber cloth or kitchen towel side to side.

2 – Have your bathroom cleaned top to bottom once a week

Don’t neglect your bathroom to the point it gets more difficult to clean. Pick a day in a week when you’ll clean the entire bathroom, top to bottom. If you maintain the hygiene of a bathroom every now and then, cleaning will come easier. Complete cleaning makes it squeaky clean, so you don’t have to deal with it for a week.

Remember to disinfect the sink, toilet, bathtub, and all surfaces you touch. Alcohol mixed with a couple of tea tree oil drops will disinfect and leave a pleasant smell. Consider preventive sanitizing services to keep insects and rodents away from a bathroom.

3 –  Use special slippers when going to the bathroom

People tend to rush to the bathroom first as soon as they come home. This is why bathroom floors become dirty quite fast. Use special slippers or flip-flops you’ll use specifically when going to a bathroom. Put them in front of the bathroom to get reminded to take your shoes off.

4 – Clean the toilet every week

The toilet is easy to overlook and neglect until the day when you clean every corner of a home. So, better write a reminder to clean the toilet on a sticky note at least twice a week. Don’t forget to clean it with a toilet brush after each use. This will tremendously help you in keeping your bathroom clean through the week.

5 – Use the right products 

It’s essential what products you are using for bathroom cleaning. Avoid all-in-one cleaning products, although they tend to be lower in price. What works for a bath, sink, and toilet won’t work on a mirror. Also, if you have wooden cabinets, you must have a wood-cleaning solution. Floors require separate cleaning solutions as well. You can find effective DIY solutions in your kitchen cabinet: baking soda and vinegar.

6 – Don’t forget bathroom storage

Open storage and drawers in the bathroom, remove all products and clean them thoroughly. Do this once a week to ensure your products remain in good condition. Also, remember to dust bathroom cabinets every now and then.

7 – Hire cleaning professionals

Is your schedule packed with duties? In that case, don’t hesitate to hire professional cleaning help and make your life easier. What would take you hours to clean becomes doable for much less time. Besides, professional cleaners have special cleaning solutions and tools that make the job quick and effortless.

A quick google search will take you to local cleaning professionals who can maintain your home while you’re busy. However, you must pay attention to ratings and previous customer experiences to know the company is the right one. Cleaning isn’t something to be left to the case. If you decide to hire cleaning help, the result you get must be satisfactory. That being said, don’t rush and search step by step:

  • Fin a couple of cleaning companies and check their services. Also, read more about their history.
  • Check the reviews.
  • Ask for a first-hand recommendation if you know someone who frequently hires cleaning help.
  • Grab a phone, contact a company and ask all you need to know.
  • Compare the prices, and testimonials, check the companies’ availability and pick the one you find the most fitting.

Give your new bathroom a good clean before moving in

The bathroom is the first to pack and unpack after the move is over. Remember to have it clean from the start, especially if you’re cleaning after moving in. Only that way can you ensure the hygiene remains on point. Moreover, cleaning becomes more manageable when the bathroom is well-maintained.

On the other hand, cleaning might be the last on your mind once your move is over, and for a good reason. Moving, especially cross-country, can be super exhausting and leave you drained. Therefore, hiring a professional cleaning company to take care of your bathroom is a life-saving solution.

Make regular cleaning a habit

Cleaning isn’t something everyone likes to do. And yet, only regular maintenance can make our bathroom and entire home comfortable for living. It all comes down to building a habit that will stay with you long-term. So, do yourself a favor, and make time to at least dust off bathroom cabinets and scrub the toilets. It will take you little time and yet make your bathroom pleasant to be in.

Make a cleaning supply shopping list

Besides unpacking, what comes after your move is also a (sometimes extensive) cleaning session. Hence why, cleaning supplies are a must. Therefore equip yourself with strong cleaning solutions, sponges, mops, and cloths. Have a broom at hand so you can dust the floors before you proceed to thorough cleaning. These are all things to keep at hand when moving.

It’s important to have cleaning solutions available to you as soon as you move in. That being said, pack them in a separate, labeled box or a special essentials bag.

Extra tips

Besides keeping your bathroom clean, it’s also essential to keep it ventilated. In addition, you can use an electronic diffuser and essential oils to give a bathroom a fresh smell. Eucalyptus, sea salt, and citrusy aromas will do just fine. As a final touch, add some lovely houseplants that thrive in humid and moist environments.
