Posted on Monday, January 13th, 2020
If there’s one household chore that elicits groans and moans and feelings of dread at the thought, it’s definitely cleaning a bathroom that’s dirty and overdue for a scrub. There’s the soap scum, hairs in the plugholes, mildew and mouldy grouting, and cleaning up this germ-laden mess is no easy task. Still, there are ways and means of making it a quick and easy job, and once you master it, you’ll probably clean more often which also makes it easier. Think of how pleasant it is to walk into a sparkling bathroom that smells fresh and clean. If you don’t feel up to it, you can always get Myhome to do a thorough spring clean, so you can start fresh and begin a regular cleaning regime that takes about 30 minutes based on the following methods:

Gather Your Cleaning Supplies
To save time and effort gather all your cleaning supplies together so you don’t have to run to the laundry or kitchen for a tool or cleaning product halfway through the job. This wastes so much time and breaks your concentration, and once you’re on a roll, you want to be able to keep going. For this cleaning method you’ll need:
- Rubber gloves
- A multi-surface cleaning spray – or vinegar
- A grout, tile and tub cleaner
- A scrubbing brush
- A bucket and mop
- Toilet bowl cleaner
- A toilet brush
- Clean microfiber cloths
- A glass cleaner
- A lint-free cloth or paper towels
If you’re using vinegar, make an all-purpose cleaning solution of equal parts water, vinegar, and lemon juice in a spray bottle.
First, put on your gloves and clear everything off the vanity and bathroom countertops, medicine cabinet and vanity cupboard and leave them on the floor. WIpe the cupboards out with your all-purpose cleaner or vinegar solution, then put everything back inside. Put all your cosmetics, toiletries and hair products where they belong, out of sight. Unplug the hairdryer, hot rollers, electric shaver and other electricals and put them away. Using your all-purpose cleaning solution spray the countertops and wipe it off with a wet microfibre cloth, then dry with a dry cloth. Remove the grime and soap scum from the tiles, bathtub, basin and shower doors, and the walls, take out any hair or sludge from the plugholes. For the next stage, spray toilet bowl cleaner into the bowl and make sure you cover it all over and under the rim.
Now For the Hard Yakka
You’ve sprayed the toilet bowl, so now scrub the inside with the toilet brush, then wipe the lid, the seat (both sides of these) and the sides and back of the toilet. Flush the toilet and wipe the surfaces over with a wet cloth to rinse, then use a fresh cloth to dry. Hint: If you don’t mind using bleach, keep a toilet brush in a holder with bleach inside so between cleanings, you can quickly freshen the bowl. Next, fill the bucket with warm water, and slosh it over the shower walls with a cloth to rinse off the cleaner. Wipe these areas over with a dry cloth so they shine. Using your glass or window cleaner, spray the mirrors and wipe over with paper towels for a finish with no streaks. Then, for a super shining bathroom, spray glass cleaner over the vanity or countertop, basin, bathtub, and all taps and fixtures. Wipe these areas clean with the paper towels. Lastly, mop the floor with your vinegar solution or preferred tile cleaner, dump the dirty cleaning cloths in the laundry and store the other cleaning products and tools away and you’re done. It wasn’t that bad, was it?
