6 Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Keep your T & B spotless with these easy cleanup tips


The smallest, wettest room in the house can easily become the dirtiest when not cleaned regularly. But who actually enjoys cleaning a bathroom? It's easy to say goodbye to mold, mess, and overall muddiness with these neat ideas.

Organize items into batches and small bins.

Start off with your sink's countertop: Don't clutter the surface with toothpaste, hairbrushes, towels, and a lot of toiletries; organize the items into batches and small bins. And here's a great way to put an end to cleaning up scummy soap dishes: use a liquid soap dispenser instead.

Maximize items found at home.

Use unorthodox objects from around your house to organize your bathroom essentials in. Here, a salt and pepper shaker holds cotton balls, while an herb container is perfect for cotton buds. Line it all up on a sushi dish that can hold your facial soaps and perfumes as well.

Store toilet paper rolls in a plastic container.

Protect your toilet paper rolls from water splashes and moisture by storing them in a sealed plastic container. Stock up on supplies and stash the bin under your sink so you won't have to endure an embarrassing search for toilet paper outside.

Use a non-skid bathmat.

If you've ever heard the term "dragging it through the mud," then you know what a muddy floor after a shower looks like. Place a non-skid bathmat near the shower or bath area so your family can wipe their feet dry before plodding around the room. You can also use a floor towel like those found in hotels, just remember to launder and change it daily.

Make a cleaning kit.

Stop the endless search for missing sponges and tile cleaners, and concentrate all of your cleaning supplies in one area. Place them all in a plastic bin that you can store in your under-sink cabinets, or easily tote anywhere.

Remove scribbles with special pads.

Banish hard-to-remove stains and kiddie scribbles on tiles without soap or detergent with an erasing pad. You can source for this item at grocery stores. Simply wet pad with water, squeeze, and rub the surface clean. Also works on other hard surfaces like wood and laminates.
