The Bathroom Cleaning Checklist

Here is a cleaning schedule you can introduce daily, weekly and monthly to for the best results. You’ll have a sparkling space in no time!

 

Once a day

The little jobs to do as part of your daily routine to keep your bathroom looking fresh.

Wipe down shower

Wipe sink after use

Wipe toilet seat

Close toilet before flushing - Flushing the toilet with the lid open fires particles up to 15 feet in the air, covering the bathroom with toilet spray!

Clean door handles

Check plugs for hair

 

Once a week

Jobs that need doing less frequently but take a little more elbow grease…

 

Scrub tiles

Clean bath tub

Clean whole toilet including bowl inside and out, cistern, handle and lid

Clean sink and taps

Wash all accessories

Wash bath mat

Clean all mirrors

Brush and mop floor

 

Did you know - The floor is often the dirtiest part of the bathroom with up to a million bacteria per square centimetre!

 

Once a month

Set a day aside and blitz that bathroom back to perfection!

 

Clean bathroom windows

Soak shower head – make a solution of equal parts water and vinegar and soak in a plastic bag. Leave for 15-20 minutes

Unclog drain with equal parts baking soda and vinegar for 10 minutes before rinsing

Top tap tip: Perfect if you live in a hard water area

Cover your taps with a vinegar soaked rag for 30 minutes

Scrub with a non-scratch sponge to get rid of deposits

Brighter whites with a toothbrush & bleach

Clean all tile grout

Scrub underneath rim of toilet

 

Take note...

Here are some important bits to remember to keep your cleaning schedule running smoothly.

Swap that sponge

Old sponges can harbor thousands of bacteria per square inch so remember to replace them regularly

Keep cloths separate

Boil wash any cloths used for cleaning toilets on their own so as not to cross contaminate!

Be an eco-cleaner

Homemade cleaning spray - Make your own natural antibacterial cleaning spray – 240ml distilled white vinegar, 110gms bicarbonate of soda, 2.5ml teaspoon of tea tree oil

Keep mould at bay

Dampness leads to mould. Open a window to keep the room ventilated

 

Now you can lie back and have a well-earned bath in your gleaming tub… just remember to clean up afterwards!
