Bathroom Cleaning Tips from Merry Maids®

No room in the house sees as much traffic as your bathroom, meaning you probably find yourself having to clean it more often than you’d like.

Fortunately, our cleaning experts are sharing some of their tips for getting a bathroom that will sparkle from top to bottom!

Tips and Tricks for an Easy Bathroom Clean

Always work top to bottom.

This really should be a rule for every room in your home. While it may be tempting to walk in and start scrubbing your tub or wiping down countertops, you always want to start at the top. First, start with the ceiling fan or any vents you have, then, move on to your wall tile, shower doors, mirror, and vanity. Finally, clean your toilet, tub, and the floor.

Because a little bit of dust will fall as you clean something, starting with your floor will only double the amount of work you have to do — something no homeowner wants to hear!

Don’t forget the small things.

You probably clean your tub and toilet every week, but when was the last time you cleaned your light switches and toothbrush holder? When you forget about small details like these, your bathroom can still look grimy — even if you just finished cleaning.

Eliminating Hard Water Stains

Do hard water stains have you scrubbing at your faucet all day? Rather than reaching for a bathroom cleaner, turn to your refrigerator. Rubbing half a lemon on your metal faucets will not only naturally break down water stains, but it will leave your bathroom smelling fresh and ready for guests.

Clean Your Cleaning Tools

Does your bathroom ever give off an odd smell, even after you just cleaned? It may not be your toilet, but rather your toilet brush. Contrary to popular belief, throwing toilet cleaner on a brush before you use it isn’t enough to clean the brush itself. Every few weeks, pour a few drops of all-purpose cleaner in the bottom of the brush holder and leave the brush to sit.
