Clean your bathroom with minimal effort

No one wants to scrub their showers but unfortunately, it is one of those jobs that must be done. By taking five minutes out of your day to clean your bathroom you will notice that this chore will become an easy one.

Clear benches

  • Take a look at your bathroom benches, basins and niches in the shower – put away everything that shouldn’t be out. This includes razors, hair straighteners and makeup! If there are clothes on the floor, put them in the dirty clothes basket and hang up your towels.

Surface cleaning

  • Spray your shower with bathroom cleaners and while you are waiting for it to work its magic get started on the toilet. Pour toilet cleaner in the bowl, give it a quick scrub and wipe down the rest of the toilet.
    TIP: Don’t forget the front of the toilet, particularly if you live with males
  • The shower spray should have had time to work now so give it a quick wipe down.
    TIP: Using body wash creates less soap scum on the tiles than a bar of soap.

Wipe wipe wipe

  • Give the walls and tiles surrounding the basins a wipe/spot clean.
    TIP: This is best done straight after having a shower as the steam makes it easier to wipe.
  • Wipe down benches and basins with disinfectant sprays, don’t forget the taps. A lot of germs harbour there!
  • Clean mirrors to remove any water splashes.
    TIP: Microfibre cloths work great for a streak-free clean.

Top up

  • Top up hand wash and toilet paper.

Homes with young children may require a few extra minutes each day to keep your bathroom clean due to the additional mess they create. Mainly fingerprints, toothpaste drawings on the shower screen and dirty clothes next to the hamper.

The ‘five minutes a day’ clean doesn’t eliminate the need for a good once over; this should still be done periodically as needed. It will, however, mean you can have a clean and tidy bathroom with minimal effort each and every day!

Do you have any tips to clean your bathroom that reduce cleaning time?

Keeping anything clean in a house with kids let alone a bathroom. But never fear, read this and discover how you can clean your bathroom in five minutes a day. #cleaning #cleaningtips #getorganised #organisation #organization #bathroom #declutter #clean

    Sometimes I get into a good habit/routine of regularly wiping down surfaces – and I agree a little bit each day is a lot easier in the long run…. I used to do it when my kids were in the evenings – because it was a time I had to be in the bathroom and couldn’t leave but they wanted to be in there for ages…. but lately they have quick showers so I’m not just standing around waiting in the bathroom with nothing better to do so I may as well have a wipe around.

      Multi-tasking is definitely the way to go and I also used to do it when the kids had their baths/showers however now it gets done during the day. Thanks for stopping by Rachel!
