On an average day, a quick surface wipe-down or a spritz of shower spray is enough to keep your bathroom in decent shape. But every once and a while, your bathroom is in need of a good deep clean. Deep cleaning your bathroom can take quite an investment of time, energy and inspiration, but if done properly, you’ll breathe new life into your morning bathroom routine.
Shower and Bathtub
First, tackle your shower. Submerge your showerhead in plastic bag full of vinegar and tie it in place overnight to remover any water stains or soap scum. Toss your plastic shower curtains and liners in the washing machine, along with any bath mats and towels. You can scrub your shower doors, walls and tub with a vinegar and baking soda paste and a small grout brush or old toothbrush dipped in bleach to your grout.
Next, wipe all tile, countertops, walls and the ceiling down with an all-purpose cleaner. Pour some baking soda and white vinegar down your bathroom’s drains and flush with hot water. Wipe down the rest of your sink with disinfecting cleaner or wipes, and be thorough—studies have shown that the average sink is home to more bacteria than the toilet.
Toilet and Floor
Pour a little toilet bowl cleaner in your toilet, let sit for a few minutes and flush. Take a toilet brush to the bowl if you still see spots, and wipe down the rest of the toilet’s surface with anti-bacterial wipes. Finally, sweep the floor and mop it down for a final gleam. If you want your bathroom to really exude cleanliness and relaxation, light a few scented candles and arrange some fresh flowers in a vase for a little oasis right in your home.
