5 Easy Bathroom Maintenance Tips You Can Do Today

Say goodbye to grime and clutter with these handy reminders


Keeping the bathroom squeaky clean can be challenging for different reasons. Since it's often wet, it's prone to mold and mildew, while the various toiletries that we own can instantly turn into clutter and unwanted eyesores. To help you maintain this part of the home, quick and easy tasks can spell a big difference. Here are five must-dos to guide you:

1. Corral your extra supplies in bins and baskets.

Once you're done gathering your extra supplies, you can keep the bins and baskets under the sink or on a wall-mounted shelf. Doing this can help keep your items from getting wet and make it easier for you to get what you need. You may choose to add labels for easier identification as well.

2. Devote a special day for your tiles.

Roll up your sleeves and get ready for a serious cleaning job. All of us don't want to have tiles with grime in between—to keep it pristine and sparkling, you can use a toothbrush and a gentle cleaning solution. Make it a habit to do this regularly to ensure better results. If the situation cannot be handled by your trusty toothbrush, consider regrouting with the help of your handyman.

3. Take care of your bath mat.

If you have a bath mat by the door, make sure you change it weekly to prevent dirt and bacteria buildup.

Many homeowners choose to place a rubber bath mat in the shower area to prevent accidents, too. Given that it's wet most of the time—mold, grime, and dirt may stick to it. Remember to scrub and brush it regularly to keep it clean.

4. Keep an essentials tray on the counter.

Many of us have a set of products that we use daily. To make it easier for you to get these must-haves while avoiding clutter, keep them in a tray and place it on the counter. Have an unwritten rule that this corner must be kept organized at all times. As much as possible, do not fill the tray with too many items. Make it a habit to return your belongings properly to keep your bathroom looking stylish and put-together.

RL Tip: Aside from repurposing old trays from the kitchen, you can also work with a mini multi-tiered shelf or an old cupcake stand.

5. Keep your cleaning supplies accessible.

Be inspired to clean your bathroom by having your needed tools under the sink or on a shelf. Starting today, maintain a command center where you can easily get brushes, cleaning cloths, and your trusted products. You can keep them in a plastic container or if the space is limited, you can take inspiration from the photo above. A slim shelf can hold everything you need without taking up floor space. It can fit in awkward niches or even between the toilet and the counter.
