bathroom cleaning

Bathroom cleaning is not something you should avoid. We bathe, we use the toilet, we brush our teeth…I think it’s safe to say this is an area you WANT to keep clean. If you keep up with cleaning, it’s easier but life gets hectic and we fall behind sometimes. When you do, you should clean EVERYTHING top to bottom.

Here is my bathroom cleaning system.

Taking the time to clean your bathroom will make you feel good and assure a clean space to clean..well yourself!

Don’t forget the bath mats. If they are icky, wash them. Clean vents in the bathroom and exhaust fan. Hang towels nicely. Wipe towel and toilet paper holders. Wipe the outside of cabinets too! If you do one deep bathroom cleaning a month, that’s ok too! Letting ick and grime build up is when you get yourself in trouble! You can do it!
