Remove all items

The first step is to remove everything from the bathroom including, bathing products, rugs, and towels. Then, you should return the makeup, toiletries, and other grooming tools to their designated cabinets. Next, take out anything that doesn't belong to your bathroom like clothes, side tables, and movable storage cabinets.

If your bathroom has mats, you should take them to the laundry room - you want the floors bare for optimal cleaning. Don't forget to remove the trash can and tidy the room.

Dust and sweep all areas

Use a microfiber duster to clean the fan vents, cabinets, and light fixtures. If the cobwebs are too high to reach, use a ladder. Once you're done, vacuum the floor to pick up debris and hair. You should also pay attention to grimy stuff that likes to hang out. And this should apply to the baseboards, floors, and all areas around the toilet. If you can vacuum these areas, that's fine.

Apply the cleaner to the toilet bowl shower head and bathtub

You should put some disinfectant in the toilet seat and bowl and let it sit for up to 15 minutes. Also, apply a ring of toilet bowl cleaner and let it sit to work the magic. The standing time will help to dissolve oils, so you'll need to remove them.

Make sure the door is open for proper ventilation. If there's serious buildup, you should mix one tablespoon of baking powder with white vinegar and water. Use a wet towel to scrub the corners or grout lines. After that, use a moist rag to clean the surfaces. If you have a glass door, use a cleaner or a dump cloth.

Deep clean other surfaces

Use an all-purpose cleaner or dish soap to wipe down the shelves, shower curtain and doors, baseboards, windowsills, and blinds. You can use an old toothbrush to clean the seams of fixtures and wipe the area thoroughly. If you have soap dispensers, use a rag to wipe the surfaces thoroughly.

The shower curtains are prone to mildew attack, so you should mix an equal proportion of water and bleach to get rid of the spots. Of course, you ought to work from top to bottom.

Make the cleaning solution for the floor

Unless you want to use your gourmet cleaner, you should prepare your solution. You should fill your bucket with warm water and all-purpose cleaner. For mildly dirty grout, you can mix baking soda and warm water. Be careful when using the solution as it can be damaging to materials like granite, slate, marble, and stone tiles.

If you're cleaning fragile tiles, you should mix one part of hydrogen peroxide with two parts of baking soda. This cleaning solution will make your bathroom shine without harsh chemicals.

Clean the shower and bathtub thoroughly

Now that the cleaner has done the magic, you should scrub the bathtub to get rid of any loose dirt. Use abrasive scrubbing pads to remove deposits and bath rings on the shower floors. You should also focus on the tile grout to reach into the corners and cracks. Still, you can use a tile brush since the handle prevents accidental contact with the tub. 

A cleaning toothbrush will also help to remove buildup deposits in the faucet. Once you're done, clean it thoroughly to remove the product residue.

Finish cleaning the shower and bathtub

Use a detachable showerhead to rinse the cleaner evenly. The process can also be easy if you use a removable shower cleaner. Once the place is sparkling clean, you should replace all the items you had removed earlier. If your shower has a glass door, it needs special treatment. You can spray a glass cleaner or pine oil. Be sure to avoid abrasive cleaners.

Focus on vanity or mirror area

Use water and a glass cleaner to wipe the services. You can also use a lint-free material and buff to a dry shine. With your gloves on, spray the mirror with a glass cleaner in a tight S-pattern (top to bottom). Then, switch sides of your cloth and buff to a dry shine.

You can also mix vinegar and water to clean other services. If you have buildup in the soap dish or sink, use a sponge to wipe clean. After that, you can use a damp cloth to remove dust from the face of the cabinets.

Clean the toilet

If cleaning the toilet is part of your everyday routine, the all-purpose cleaner should do the job. Alternatively, you can apply granulated or liquid toilet cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes. If soap scum buildup exists, you can scrub with an all-purpose cleaner and toilet brush. Make sure you read the label to check the standard time as some antibacterial products require a specific time to kill germs.

For those who clean the toilet a few times a week, you may find a stubborn ring. You should scrub the area gently to remove any deposit and wipe clean with a fresh cloth. If you have hard water stains on the bowl, you can use a pumice stone. The trick to cleaning the toilet is to start from the dirtiest spots to the least dirty.

After cleaning, close the seat so that it can drip dry into the bowl. Don't forget to set the brush back to its holder and finish off the surface with a microfiber cloth.

Mop the floor

You should first remove any dust or hair. After that, place a mop in a cleaning bucket and then mop the floor. But here is the thing - you should start with hard-to-reach spots like under the vanity and behind the toilet. If some areas are too hard to reach, don't be afraid to get down on your knees. Use a disinfectant, and once clean, you can place the fresh rags.
