Updated: Oct 6, 2022

Bathroom Deep Cleaning

Bathrooms are frequently used. It's dirty because of this. In the steamy bathroom sink and shower, soap scum, dust, and water stains thrive. To keep your bathroom a peaceful sanctuary, deep clean it regularly.

1. Create a Strategy

Prioritize your tasks. You can resume where you left off after a break. This checklist helps decide what cleaning tools you'll need.

2. Take everything out of its regular spot.

Take everything out of the tub and/or shower, throw soiled towels and rugs, and clean the counters. Toss expired or unnecessary medicines.

3. Sanitize the garbage can

To eliminate germs and odors, sanitize the garbage can's interior. Brush the container with nylon. Wipe the outside with hot water and a nylon scrubber. Air-dry. Heat will kill mold if it dries in the sun.

4. Dust and sweep

Use a long-handled duster to remove cobwebs from corners, light fixtures, and vents. Sweep or vacuum to eliminate hair and other debris.

5. Clean the floor with a mop

Mop the bathroom floor by soaking, squeezing, and drying the mop. Put a hair trap in the drain to prevent clogs. When a tub or shower doesn't drain properly, a ring forms.

6. Find the source of mold and mildew's moisture.

Mold and mildew growth in a bathroom is unattractive and unhealthy. A powerful industrial cleaner can't clean the impacted areas. Spray baking soda and vinegar to clean yourself and the environment. In moldy areas, wear a latex mask and gloves.

7. Change surfaces

Towel racks, shelves, baseboards, doors, curtains, and windowsills can be disinfected with an all-purpose cleaner. Move left to right and top to bottom as you work.

8. The shower curtain and liner can be machine-washed unless made of plastic or care instructions say otherwise.

Replace or soak plastic ones in water and vinegar.

9. Window Bathroom

Window cleaning completes any room's aesthetic. Wash the screen. Squeegee windows to clean them. Sills, tracks, and casing can be cleaned with a toothbrush or compressed air. You can vacuum or wipe down blinds and shades. Metal or vinyl blinds can be cleaned by soaking them in warm water, soap, and vinegar, then washing and drying them flat on a towel. Vacuum or wash window coverings.

Toilet Cleaning

10. Toilet

To eliminate toilet bowl rings, staining, and odor, follow these instructions.

a. Soak the toilet bowl in cleaner. Instead of chemical cleaners, pour vinegar into the toilet bowl. Brush the bowl cleaned quickly.

b. Spray the toilet with disinfectant while the cleaner soaks in. When cleaning a dirty toilet, use paper towels first.

c. Scrub the bowl with a sponge. Check the toilet's floor and base for damage. Quick-release toilet seats may be cleaned without contacting the bowl.

d. Many individuals overlook cleaning under the rim where water drains. Remember, OK? Brush or sponge the rim's underside.

Regularly cleaning the toilet will make future cleanings easier. This would remove harmful microorganisms and unattractive mineral buildup. Remember the water bottle. If you remove the tank's cover and peek inside, you may find mineral deposits or other junk that may be cleaned with vinegar. One hour is fine. Turn off the water and flush the toilet. The tank will be empty. Use a sponge or toilet brush to clean the empty tank. Fill the tank and flush to clean the toilet.

Regular bathtub cleaning can cut a one-hour chore into 10 minutes. Soap scum removal keeps concrete and glass cleaner.

You'll need a Ziploc sandwich bag, cleaning vinegar, lemon essential oil, and a rubber band, tape, or cable tie to fasten the bag around the head (if you decided not to remove the showerhead). Soak the head for 12 hours. Brass, gold, or nickel-coated showerheads need 30 minutes. Clean the water ports with a toothpick and an old toothbrush.

Shower glass or walls with a bucket. Spray white vinegar over the shower door and let it soak for 10 minutes (depending on the buildup). Scrub the glass with baking soda.

15. Faucet

Soap, grime, and moisture breed around faucets. When it dries, it can be tough to remove. Vinegar and paper towels would work. Wrap vinegar-soaked paper towels around the faucet and soak for at least 30 minutes.

Deep Clean Drains

16. Drains

Soap, toothpaste, lotion, and other greasy things can clog bathroom sink pipes over time. Traditional drain cleaners may be hazardous to people and the environment. Dangerous cleaners. Vinegar is a safe, affordable, and effective drain cleaner. Vinegar and baking soda create a powerful mechanical foam that dissolves blockages and chemicals. 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup vinegar, and 2.1 liters of boiling water clear bathroom drains. Carefully pour in drained salt (a caustic chemical that dissolves blockages), baking soda (which combines with vinegar to generate a froth that pushes blockages downpipes), and white vinegar (vinegar reacts with the baking soda). Pour 2.1 liters of boiling water down the drain after 10 minutes. Vinegar dissolved the hot water discharge blockage. This procedure works best for clogged or fatty kitchen sinks.

17. All the tips enumerated above are helpful to keep your bathroom clean and removing unwanted odors

Having a cleaning regimen will help you keep the bathroom clean more easily.

  1. Daily: After each shower, use a squeegee to prevent water marks.

  2. Weekly: Clean the shower/tub, toilet, and surfaces thoroughly. Also, mop weekly.

  3. Monthly: Organize bathroom cabinets and closets. This helps organize storage spaces.

  4. Yearly: With consistent upkeep, a bathroom shouldn't need a yearly deep clean. Take down blinds and soak them in an all-purpose cleaner; wash your plastic shower curtain in cold water. You should also vacuum the exhaust fan vents or grilles.
