How To Deep Clean The Bathroom
Let’s break this down a bit more, we’ve heard the term deep clean and we want to make sure that we are all on the same page as to what this means.
This will help us all understand the definition so that we know what’s coming with how much we need to clean.
The way we are going to look at this is to clean every part of the bathroom, nothing is going to be missed or crossed off the list.
We want the bathroom to shine from top to bottom and we want it to look and feel amazing. There is no standing around looking for something to clean we will know what needs cleaning and in what order.
Remove things from your bathroom so that you can easily clean, so any bath mats, toothbrushes, etc need removing so it’s easier to clean.
Looking Up In The Bathroom
It’s best to work in a room from the ceiling down to the floor, this way the last thing to clean is the floor.
So what’s up? The ceiling and the light fixture. If you can’t access the light on your own always ask for help to get the light cover off to clean and put back.
This is the first thing I clean, mine is glass and I wash off the dust with a sink full of warm soapy water and I use a towel to dry before buffing with a glass cloth.
The ceiling is my next task and I’ve started using my microfiber mop wet to wash the ceiling and get any cobwebs up there. It’s simple and it means I don’t need the steps to get the ceiling clean.

Cleaning The Walls In The Bathroom
My next task is the walls, now I have a tiled bathroom from fall to ceiling and this means I can use the microfiber mop to clean the walls of my bathroom without having to put too much effort into climbing up and down steps.
I do have a window in my bathroom and this is the next item I will clean, I use my window ecloth to wipe the glass and the plastic frames before using my glass cloth to buff the glass to make it shine.
This is when I tackle a glass shelf, two mirrors, and the window sill. They are all cleaned with my window ecloth and glass cloth to buff.
Window Dressing And Storage Units
I have a roller blind in my bathroom and I just wipe this down with my damp window ecloth. It pulls up any dirt and makes my blind look and feels clean.
I don’t have an extractor in my bathroom and at this point, this is where I would be cleaning that.
I have a storage unit in my bathroom and this is the point I like to clean that. I take everything off the shelves and wipe over the whole unit.
For this, I just use my ecloth which is damp. I buff any surfaces that have items to go on, just to make sure that the surface isn’t damp.
I take the time to put everything back, ensuring it looks pretty.
Cleaning The Bath And Shower
This is an area that you need to take pride in, it’s a place where you clean and often just relax. You want this to be a special place and you deserve it to be clean.
If you have mold, I use a dilution of tea tree oil with water and spray it onto any mold. If I am using any other cleaning products I want to make sure that I’m not mixing chemicals as this isn’t good for your health.
Follow the instructions on any product you use, they are there for a reason and that’s important to follow them.
Don’t forget to scrub the bath panel and clean out the drain before you are finished with the bath and shower.
Cleaning The Bathroom Sink
I leave the sink second to last as I sometimes like to rinse out my cloth and if I’ve cleaned the sink first I will have to clean it again.
Now with a sink clean, it’s important to clean around the taps, the taps themselves, the plug, and the overflow hole.
But how do you do this? put some cream cleaner on your scrub mommy and get scrubbing. To get close in to the taps you need a sonic scrubber, they are amazing.
You want to remove all forms of dirt and germs so this is quite a clean in itself.
Don’t forget the cupboard, at least the outside, and the pedestal too.
Cleaning The Bathroom Toilet
The toilet is the last thing I clean, if you use a cloth make sure you don’t clean this first. I use toilet paper to clean the toilet and flush this down the toilet when clean.
I have started using a silicon toilet brush and this is the only place I still use bleach. I don’t like how some of the other toilet cleaners can leave a dull residue on the toilet bowl.
Don’t forget to clean around the base of the toilet and behind the toilet. This is important because it means you care about the cleanliness of the bathroom as a whole..
Cleaning the Floor In The Bathroom
It’s going to depend on the type of flooring as to how you clean it. I have vinyl flooring, so I use either my steam mop or a mop and bucket with water and a cleaning solution.
I leave the room long enough for the floor to dry before putting items back into the bathroom that belongs there.
I have been known to use a scrubbing brush on my hands and knees and dry the floor with an old towel as I moved around the room. This is no longer the best form of cleaning as it causes pain in my knees and wrists.
