Your home is your castle and every area in your home is a royal place. But out of all the areas in the home, the bathroom has a uniqueness of its own, because it is a place of solitude and a place where serenity must always be found. We’ve heard it said before, “that cleanliness is next to godliness”, so the importance of keeping your bathroom ‘divine’ and immaculately clean cannot be underestimated. However, for most people it is the most dreaded place to clean, so here are some simple tips to ease the burden, and to more efficiently produce the desired results.
Gather your supplies
Have everything you need to clean ready – the basics include:
- Your desired cleaning agents (Bleach, Pine cleaner, Comet, Glass cleaner for your mirror, and tile cleaner for floors if necessary).
- Cleaning tools (gloves, toilet brush, clean rags, mop, scrub brush, and a non-streaking, lint-free cloth for mirrors).
- An open mind and good attitude never hurts.
Let’s get the ball rolling and it will be over with before you know it
Clear everything from the counters so there is nothing in the way. Spray everything, the counters, tub, shower walls, and the exterior of the toilet. You should put some pine or desired cleaner inside the toilet bowl to soak in and then get to scrubbing. In the tub add a little warm to hot water, scrub everywhere, then rinse and rinse again. Approach the toilet, use the scrub brush for the inside, and then work on the exterior. Next wipe down the outside with a dry cloth. Proceed to mirrors with the non-streaking, lint-free cloth. Finally, with a fresh cloth rinse your sink and counters and dry with a fresh rag. Inspect and a smile should start to replace the frown.
Believe it or not you are almost there
Next, it’s time to work on the floors. If you have ceramic floors you will need tile and grout cleaner. To take your tile to the highest level of clean you will want to take a tough brush and get in between the lines. For regular floors just put your mop right into action with the appropriate cleaner. Inspect and again let the smile shine.
Believe it or not you are almost done. Take all your dirty rags and mop, and locate them to be cleaned. Place all your countertop items back where they belong and then here comes the prize… Go use the bathroom. Relax, take a bath, or do whatever you like, and enjoy your clean and fresh room of meditation. You are done!
