Clear benches

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

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 males live there!
  • The shower spray  should have had time to work now so give it a quick wipe down. (I use Healthy Clean Bathroom Rapid Foam because it works fast)
    TIP: If you use body wash, it 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! To combat germs the Dettol Healthy Clean Bathroom Trigger is a great choice as it kills 99.9% of germs.
  • Clean mirrors to remove any water splashes.
    TIP: Microfiber 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 minute 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!

By following these ideas you can clean your bathroom in five minutes a day – or there abouts.

Do you have any tips to add that can help reduce bathroom cleaning time?

    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!

    Thank you for this. It’s encouraged me to get my bathroom cleaned. I’ve always dreaded how long it took

      My pleasure Anita! The bathroom (shower more specifically) is my most despised housework!
