Can you use 11 ways to clean the bathroom quickly? I must say the ways I am showing you today are extreme to get your bathrooms clean once a month job. I do not use “green” products when I want to scrub down a really needy bathroom. I personally clean my bathrooms every Sunday.
Yes, it’s the Sabbath, but here’s the deal…that day works for me. I recently helped a friend clean an apartment that was a rental. You know when you see that black stuff under the toilet rim and you know it needs to go, right? Or the toilet seat looks a little disgusting? Just replace the toilet seat, you will be glad you did, I promise.
I recommend NOT buying cheap plastic toilet seats. I am going to list the items I use to clean my bathrooms every week as well as the deep cleaning supplies.
Just so you know if you have two bathrooms, place these items in both bathrooms. This way you are not dragging a container with the cleaning supplies into every room of the house. I used to have four bathrooms and I had a set of these in all four bathrooms. I literally can clean my bathrooms in 10 minutes or less by keeping them clean weekly.
Keep in mind I do not have large bathrooms, but one of them has two bathroom sinks, a toilet, and a shower. The other bathroom has a tub shower combination, toilet, and one sink. I live a pretty simple life, but I love clean bathrooms. I hate to dust, but love cleaning toilets, what can I say?
11 Ways To Clean The Bathroom Quickly:
Toilet bowl cleaner: Lysol Cling Gel Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Ocean Fresh Scent, 24 Ounce (Pack of 4).
I use this product to spray under the toilet rim and let it soak as directed on the bottle. Next, I use the pumice stone shown below on my list of cleaning supplies.
Pumice stone: U. S. Pumice HDW-12 Pumie Scouring Stick (4 pack)
A few years ago, I remember someone saying to me, “Well won’t that pumice stone scratch the toilet bowl”? Yep, it sure will, but I would rather see a clean toilet bowl than that the brownish black stuff that won’t wash off under the toilet rim. That’s totally gross, in my opinion.
So, I use elbow grease and scrub under the toilet rim with a wet pumice stone with the Lysol Cling Gel Toilet Bowl Cleaner sprayed under the rim. Now, I have never had to do this on my toilets but if you have a rental or older toilet, you may need to do this in order to make them white again.
These wipes are what I use to wipe down the top of the toilet tank, the toilet tank, the lid, and the toilet seat. I use about 5-6 Clorox sheets per bathroom every week. I use them on the countertops and the top rim of the bathtub.
I also use these to clean the grout that may be yellowed by pee at the bottom of the toilet bowl tank next to the floor. The grout can get pretty bad if not cleaned weekly. I call that ring around the toilet! I even use them on the floor.
Window cleaner: Sprayway Glass Cleaner – 6 Cans
I used to buy a popular window cleaner, even though it said it was streak-free, my windows always had streaks. I prefer these cans because they work great. Costco sells a really good brand as well. I am fussy about clean mirrors and faucets. I typically share a can or two with friends and all but one keeps asking me where to buy it. I love clean windows and mirrors. I buy my glass cleaner by the case, yep 12 cans!
Shower cleaner: Scrubbing Bubbles Shower Cleaner Mega Foamer 3 Pack
This stuff cleans the shower walls really well, and I mean really well. I sometimes still have to use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads with the cleaner if the stains are hard to get out. Make sure the product is safe for your shower walls.
Bathroom counter cleaner: Scrubbing Bubbles Cleaner Aerosol Color Change (Pack Of 2)
This stuff cleans the bathroom countertops really well, and I mean really well. I sometimes still have to use the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads with the cleaner if the stains are hard to get out. Make sure the product is safe for your countertops.
Here’s the deal about towel racks. We need to make it as easy as possible for people to hang up their towels whether it be hand or bath towels. Hooks work the best because they literally ensure the towels are in fact hung up to dry. No one likes to fold them into thirds to hang them on the towel bar, in my opinion. I did away with towel bars years ago. I only have towel bars with hooks in both bathrooms now.
Garbage Cans: InterDesign Kent Bathware, 10-Inch Waste Can, Bronze
If you get a nice sturdy small garbage can and use garbage bags, it makes life so much easier when you empty them. I promise. Empty them as needed. Target sells great little garbage cans that are not very expensive.
You can buy 4-gallon garbage bags at your local supermarket or online. I tie a knot in one corner and slip it over the can. They work great and keep the garbage cans clean.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner Set: Don Aslett Cleaner Set
I have one of these sets in each bathroom so they are ready to use when I clean the bathrooms on Sunday. I do not use them as the video shows. I just use the brush/wand with the cleaning solution squirted on it and swish it around the toilet bowl.
Next, I squeeze the brush with the cover and get as much as water out of them after scrubbing the toilet bowl. Then I let it dry until next week. Then I use the Clorox wipes to wipe down the toilet parts as indicated above. This is how I clean my bathrooms in 10 minutes every week, literally 10 minutes.
Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Cleaning Pads, 8-Count Box
I use these cleaning pads to clean the bathtub and shower walls. You wet them and start scrubbing. Love it! Just so you know, these cleaning pads will remove washable chalk paint in the tubs and shower. I tried everything and this is the ONLY thing that will remove it. I also use these on rentals where the toilets have really dirty grout on the bottom of the tanks next to the floor. Yep, they work on pee stains.
I hope my 11 ways to clean the bathroom quickly help you clean your bathrooms faster and more efficiently! Here’s to saving time while cleaning the one room in the house that gets used very often! Let me know if you have any cleaning tricks I can add to this list. I love hearing new ideas.
Paper Towels: Bounty Select-A-Size Paper Towels, Huge Rolls, White, 12 Count are a given with me in my cleaning supplies. I have started having them delivered to my house every month. I love it because it’s one thing less I have to go to Costco to buy each month.
