Deep Cleaning the Bathroom from Tile to Tub


As the most used room in the house, the bathroom takes a beating and requires frequent deep cleaning to keep it fresh and prevent buildup of dirt, soap scum, and bacteria. Thoroughly cleaning the bathroom from top to bottom not only keeps it looking its best, but also helps maintain hygiene and prevent odors. In this article, I will walk through my process of deep cleaning my bathroom from tile to tub.

Supplies Needed

Before I start scrubbing, I make sure I have all the necessary supplies:

  • Cleaning caddy to hold everything
  • Glass cleaner + Microfiber cloths for mirrors and windows
  • All-purpose cleaner + Scrub brushes for most surfaces
  • Toilet cleaner + Toilet brush
  • Shower spray + Scrub pads for tiles
  • Tub & tile cleaner + Scrub sponge for tub
  • Baking soda for extra scrubbing power
  • Rubber gloves to protect hands
  • Old toothbrush for grout and crevices
  • Vacuum to clean up dirt and hair

Having all supplies in one place makes the process smooth and efficient.

Deep Cleaning Step-by-Step

With my supplies gathered, I’m ready to thoroughly clean each part of the bathroom:

Cleaning the Mirrors and Windows

I start with the mirrors and windows since they’re easy. I spray glass cleaner onto a microfiber cloth and rub in circles to remove smudges, splatters, and soap buildup. I buff them dry with a clean cloth.

Scrubbing Walls, Counters, and Sinks

Next, I tackle the counters, sinks, faucets, and wall surfaces. I spray all-purpose cleaner onto scrub brushes and scour the counters, scrub the sinks, and wipe down the walls to remove grime. I rinse everything and buff surfaces dry with a clean cloth.

Disinfecting the Toilet

Now for the toilet. I spray toilet cleaner under the rim and all over the bowl and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing with a toilet brush. I make sure to scrub thoroughly to remove any limescale and rust stains. I flush to rinse away cleaning residue.

Cleaning the Shower and Tub

For the shower walls, I spray on shower cleaner, let it sit briefly, and scrub the tiles with a sponge or scrub pad. I use a plastic scraper to remove any stubborn soap scum or mildew. For the tub, I spray on tub & tile cleaner, sprinkle baking soda for extra power, and scrub all around the tub and tile surrounding it. I rinse thoroughly.

Scrubbing the Floors

I sweep then mop the floors using my preferred floor cleaner and scrub in difficult areas like corners. For tile floors, I scrub the grout lines with an old toothbrush.

Sanitizing and Finishing Touches

As a final step, I spray a sanitizing bathroom cleaner over all surfaces and fixtures, let it sit, then rinse clean. I buff surfaces dry with a clean cloth. I also wipe down the door handles, faucet fixtures, and hinges. Finally, I take out the trash can and give the bathroom a final vacuum.


Deep cleaning the bathroom thoroughly from top to bottom takes time but is essential to prevent nasty buildup and odors. Having the right supplies ready in a caddy allows me to efficiently scrub every surface. I make sure to regularly deep clean the bathroom, focusing on disinfecting high-touch areas like sinks, toilets, and shower walls. A sparkling clean bathroom improves my whole household’s hygiene and health. Consistently maintaining the bathroom pays off in the long run.
