Here’s a closer look at each.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #1: Make a Plan

The first step to any deep-cleaning project is to make a plan. This will help you stay organized and focused while you’re cleaning. When you’re making your plan, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • What needs to be done? Make a list of all the tasks that need to be completed.
  • Who will do each task? Assign each task to a specific person.
  • When will each task be done? Create a schedule for when each task will be completed.
  • What supplies will you need? Make sure you have all the cleaning supplies you’ll need before you start.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #2: Remove Everything from the Bathroom

The next step is to remove everything from the bathroom. This includes all toiletries, towels, rugs, and trash. You want to remove everything so you can clean all surfaces thoroughly. It’s also a good idea to put everything in a box or bag so it doesn’t get lost.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #3: Clean the Surfaces

Once everything is out of the bathroom, you can start cleaning the surfaces. This includes countertops, sinks, toilets, tubs, showers, and mirrors. For best results, use a disinfectant cleaner and clean each surface from top to bottom. Start with the countertops and move down to the floors.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #4: Clean the Fixtures and Fittings

Next, you’ll want to clean all the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom. This includes faucets, showerheads, towel racks, and toilet paper holders. Again, use a disinfectant cleaner for best results.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #5: Clean the Floors

After you’ve cleaned all the surfaces and fixtures, it’s time to clean the floors. Start by sweeping or vacuuming the floor to remove any dirt or dust. Then, mop or scrub the floors with a disinfectant cleaner.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #6: Wipe Down the Walls

The next step is to wipe down the walls. This will remove any dirt, dust, or fingerprints. Use a damp cloth and a mild cleaner for best results.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #7: Sanitize and Deodorize

The last step is to sanitize and deodorize the bathroom. This will help remove any germs or odors. Sanitizing can be done with a household disinfectant or a diluted bleach solution. Deodorizing can be done with a store-bought deodorizer or by boiling water on the stovetop and adding a few drops of essential oil.

Bathroom Deep-Cleaning Tip #8: Put Everything Back in Place

Once everything is clean, you can put everything back in the bathroom. Make sure to put all toiletries and towels away neatly. You may also want to consider adding some fresh flowers or a scented candle to make the bathroom feel more inviting.
