How to Quickly and Efficiently Clean Your Bathroom

December 8, 2021

Wondering how to efficiently clean a bathroom so the job gets done fast? No one likes cleaning a bathroom, so it’s only normal to want to get in, get out and get on with life. Cleaning your bathroom quickly is easy if you follow these tips.

Move bathroom items from their usual spots

Start the deep cleaning process by removing items like shampoo, soaps and other bathroom products from the shower, bathtub and counters. As a general rule, take out anything you can move, including the trash can, so you can effectively clean the areas around them.

Dust and sweep

Once you’ve removed items from their usual locations, get rid of dust that may be lingering on surfaces. Start by grabbing your duster and removing cobwebs and debris on shelving, light fixtures, ledges, countertops and the toilet tank. Next, grab a broom or vacuum and remove all debris from the floor.

Use an all-purpose cleaner on the shower and bathtub

Apply an all-purpose cleaner to the tub and shower area to get rid of soap scum and minor calcium deposits. If you’re dealing with excessive caked-on gunk and grime, use an acid-based cleaner to cut through it more effectively.

It’s best to let the cleaner soak into the surfaces to loosen up the grime and make it easier for you to simply wipe it off with a sponge or soft cloth. Make sure you don’t forget to clean the shower track and inside the shower door, when applicable. Use a light touch to scrub away any buildup. Once you have the walls, floors and other surfaces clean to your standards, turn on the water to rinse any residue down the drain.

Clean the toilet

The next step in learning how to clean a bathroom fast is a job no one likes to do: cleaning the toilet. If you keep your toilet reasonably clean, a once-over with the all-purpose cleaner and a toilet brush should be enough to clean the inside. If buildup exists, scrub with a toilet-specific cleaner to remove it.

Clean the sink and vanity area

Use your trusty all-purpose cleaner on sinks, faucets and countertops. As long as you’re using a disinfecting cleaner, you should be removing all germs, along with dirt and grime, from these areas. Use a scrubby sponge on sinks to get built-on gunk to come loose. You should also give other elements, including shelving, towel racks, baseboards and doors a once-over with your cleaning solution and a light scrub.

Mop the floor

Mix a cleaning solution with products that are appropriate for the flooring you have in your bathroom. Make sure you’re getting into the hard-to-reach places like behind the toilet and under the toe-kick of your vanity cabinet. After everything’s dry, you can bring your bathroom items back in and enjoy the feeling of a job well done.
