I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! If you guys are following the  messed up home weekly Cleaning challenges , this week we are moving into the Bathrooms ! Which room in the house do you least like cleaning?

Bet you said the bathroom. Cleaning showers, bathtubs, toilets and other surfaces of all sorts of buildup takes both time and elbow grease.  No wonder keeping the bathroom clean and organized can be such a challenge!  In an effort to keep our own lives decluttered, as well as lend a hand where needed, we’re stepping into the bathroom this week.

Have you ever notices how much stuff accumulates in the bathroom ? We do use a few products daily ,what about the products we bought for Costco or any other wholesale store ? we do have to organize the stuff that we have already bought and make space for it isn’t it? When I used to Shop at Costco few years ago I used to store all the stuff in cabinets under the sink ! i do not have pics of it now but everything was in its own place and not a mess at all! Now I don’t have the privilege to shop at Costco neither do i under the sink cabinets in my home !  SAD,But that doesn’t mean I  don’t have space to keep my stuff ,just became a little more creative !! LoL! Here is 10 steps of our weekly cleaning Challenges for the Bathrooms ,as you all know by now ,I have 4 bathrooms to deal with this week( Why oh why ) ,so

Each day I will tackle one bathroom ,but if you don’t have so many !(Lucky U) You can divide the tasks into smaller manageable chores each day ! So Here is Step by step Process how to clean your bathroom  , There is also a Printable Checklist to help you not to loose track!

Ultimate Bathroom Cleaning Checklist .

1.De- cluttering the Bathroom .

Do this step for the entire bathroom or  as you go. Remove all of your products from the shower or  bathtub area . Put all the  used towels and rugs outside the room and start a wash cycle of only these differently of course . Remove items from the counters  and keep them outside the room . If you have time then declutter and organize as you go ! Don’t forget to grab  the trash can and empty it !

2.  Shower and bathtub.

Fill the Bath tub with hot water ,If you don’t have a bath tub ,you must be having a bucket ! Fill the bucket with hot water add a few drops of detergent to it . Remove the shower curtains and liner and wash it according to the label on it . put the toilet cleaner in the toilet bowl now . Apply Homemade cleaner  to the shower tiles and the bathtub , if you clean regularly or an acid-based cleaner if you have serious buildup to your shower. Don’t forget the shower glass wall and door if any  and inside the shower door . Let it soak for atleast 30 minutes . tip: try dryer sheets to clean you shower glass walls.

3. Tackle  all other surfaces & Vanity area 

Meanwhile Spray the all-purpose cleaner on to your backsplash , sink area , counter tops everywhere u need to clean  and wipe down any towel racks, shelves, baseboards, doors, blinds and windowsills. Work in sections from the top of the room to the bottom, and left to right, if your door is on the right  , and right to left if your door is on the left ! Spray faucets and countertops, then wipe with a clean cloth. If you have buildup in the sink or in a soap dish, use a scrubby  green sponge to loosen before wiping clean. Use the glass cleaner on your mirror. A cloth dampened with water will remove dust from cabinet faces.

4. scrub & Disinfect  the shower and bathtub.

At this point, the cleaner will have done much of the work for you, allowing you to lightly scrub away loose dirt and buildup. Get all walls, floors and other surfaces clean before rinsing.

5. Finish & Polish the shower and bathtub.

Replace all items you removed, wiping them if necessary as you go, then close the shower curtain or door. If you do have a shower door, spray glass cleaner  or wipe down with a news paper to give it a streak-free finish.

6. Clean the toilet.

If you scrub inside your toilet regularly, the toilet  cleaner should get the job done. Sprinkle the toilet  cleaner if buildup exists, then scrub with a toilet brush before flushing. Spray the outside of  toilet with the all-purpose cleaner, then wipe with a clean cloth. tip : if your toilet has rings use  a Pumice stone .

7. Dust and sweep.

To get rid of dust, work from top to bottom !! grab your duster with a long handle to remove any cobwebs in corners, on light fixtures or in vents. If you still can’t reach the cobwebs, pull in a stepladder to get up high. Once done, sweep or vacuum the floors to pick up hair and other debris that may have accumulated on the floors.

8. Mop the floor.

 Fill your bucket with hot water and cleaning solution ,Submerge your mop into the bucket of cleaning solution, squeeze out excess water, then clean the bathroom floor. Once dry, replace the trashcan and your freshly laundered rugs.

9. Organize 

Organize  your bathroom  , Its always good to have a Organized Bathroom , Rather than a messy one !

10. Decorate 

A Well Decorated Bathroom always is Pleasing to the eye !  It need not be very Expensive just few simple things can change how the way your bathroom looks ! The above can help you clean your bathroom fast and efficiently, as can keeping it tidy between cleanings.  Follow these tips simplify your life too.

  • .Install a hair-catcher in your drain to avoid buildup. When water doesn’t drain as it should, it leaves behind an ugly ring around the shower or bathtub.
  • I f you are like me every night before i go to sleep I put the toilet bowl cleaner stuff to the toilets which i don’t plan to use that night , so in the morning its easy for Swish andFlush !

A Slight Change this week I will keep on Posting things about bathroom Cleaning and Organization throughout the week with pics , as I also have to do the same tasks as you ,So if you have any pics I would love to see how the progress is !!
