I’m sharing why I love cleaning bathrooms every week with you today. It may seem odd, but I really love to clean bathrooms. It cuts down on bacteria, obviously, the bathrooms have who knows what in the toilets, the bathtubs, the countertops, and don’t forget the light switches. I have a definite routine for my bathrooms. My house is very small and only has 2 bathrooms. Please stay well by keeping your bathrooms clean.

When I worked I had someone clean my house every week for almost 20 years, it was awesome. Yes, I am a perfectionist and I had to give instructions to the gal that worked for me. I had the same housekeeper for all those years and I loved her like a sister.

I had a large home with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a dining room, a living room, a family room, and two kitchens. It was a great family home, but a few years ago, Mark and I decided to downsize. It’s been very hard for me to live in this tiny home because I love to entertain and I have had to adjust to a very SMALL home.

But I am grateful I have a home, regardless of what size it is. Since I semi-retired my routine for cleaning bathrooms is every Sunday. Yes, it’s the Sabbath, but that day is my day to clean my bathrooms. What can I say, it works for me.

Cleaning Bathrooms:

The first thing I do is wash the toilets, I love clean toilets. I literally can clean my bathrooms in five minutes. Yep, five minutes. Here is the tool I use for the toilets: Don Aslett’s Complete Toilet Set with Pumice Stone and these are the brush replacements: Don Aslett’s Johnny Mop-Set of 3 and I buy this product when my bottles of cleaner get low: Safety Foam Toilet Bowl Cleaner 2 Pack

Next, I clean the bathtubs with this gadget as I no longer kneel on my knees: Hurricane Spin Scrubber Cleaning Brush Keep in mind if you can kneel just use a good brush and keep up on the scrubbing because I only use this baby once a month.

I use Spic N Span or whatever another cleaner I have in the house. I have tried homemade cleaners and they don’t measure up to my scrub test. If you have a great recipe for one, let me know. Then I clean the countertops with Clorox wipes and clean the windows with a good window cleaner like this one: Sprayway, Sprayway Glass Cleaner, 19 oz Cans, Pack of 4

I think you can buy this brand at Costco as well. If you want clean mirrors and clean windows don’t buy the old standby window cleaner brand. It leaves streaks and the windows look worse after you smear the dirt around. Just giving you the heads-up here.

I kind of work my way out of the bathroom by cleaning the floors with my Clorox wipes. Yep, I have small bathrooms, this wouldn’t work if you have large bathrooms. I clean mine every week and therefore I can clean them in 5 minutes, literally.

Stay Healthy-Keep Bathrooms Clean

The reason I’m talking about cleaning bathrooms today is that I have several, and I mean several, sick people in the neighborhood. No, it’s not from bathrooms that need to be cleaned, but I think clean bathrooms help us stay healthy. Of course, we need to eat fruits and vegetables to keep our immune system healthy as well.

This post is a friendly reminder to use a cleaner (I use Clorox or Lysol wipes) on door knobs, light switches, TV remotes, and countertops. And don’t forget to empty the bathroom garbage cans as needed. I use the small 4-gallon garbage bags in my bathroom. I replace them as needed, but at least once a week. You can buy them at your local supermarket or Amazon: Glad Garbage Small, White, 30 ct, 4 gallons, 2pk

I hope you are well and working slowly on being prepared, you will be glad you are! May God bless your family. Thanks again for being prepared for the unexpected. What preps are you working on right now? I love to hear what you are doing. May God bless this world.

From BDN: I clean for several of my friends from dogclub. In several of the houses, I use a 50/50 mixture of white vinegar and isopropyl alcohol as Window cleaner, as a laminate floor cleaner and during cold/flu season as an all purpose cleaner to wipe down door frames, handles, cupboard hardware, remote controls, computer keyboards, computer and TV screens and telephones. It also cleans grime and disinfects the dog crates.

    Instead of buying garbage bags to use in the bathroom, I use the plastic bags that my groceries are packed in. Saves money and works well for me.

      Hi Alice, you are so right, I use those as well. I started using reusable bags a few years ago so I don’t have the plastic ones from the stores like I used too. I still get some when I forget to take my reusable bags! Happy Monday! Linda

      My county no longer allows stores to use the plastic bags. AH – I miss them for the reason you specified! That being said, I choose to not use a bag in my little garbage can. It is easily emptied in my large garbage bin on a daily or every other day basis.

    I may look into that spin scrubber. I have a spin scrubber, that I need to bend over to use. That one sounds so much better. As with most other things, I make my own cleaning supplies. I use borax, citric acid, and baking soda equal parts of each by measure.

    I always have a pack of antibacterial wipes in my bathroom, and I encourage my family to use one on the toilet after they have used it. I also clean my bathroom once a week, and I feel that the wipes keep anything nasty at bay until I can give it a proper clean.

    Must be about 15 yrs. now that I have not scrubbed my tub/shower. I spray with Dow Bathroom Scubbing spray….you know, the can with the little scrubber on the front. I just spray after a few showers…not each time….I have city water and had well water for a while too. After the shower, I spray and just leave it. It washes down the next time I shower.

    For the sink, I just spray it and wipe and rinse whenever I feel it needs it.
    Freedom!!!!!!!
