Keep Your Bathroom Pristine With A Weekly Clean

Keeping your bathroom clean should be a top priority. A dirty bathroom can breed germs and bacteria, leading to illness. With just a little time and effort each week, you can keep your bathroom pristine. Here are some tips to maintain a sparkling clean bathroom week after week.

Supplies You’ll Need

Having the right supplies on hand will make cleaning the bathroom quick and easy. Be sure you have the following items:

  • All-purpose cleaner – Look for a non-toxic cleaner that can be used to clean the tub, toilet, sink, mirrors, and floors.
  • Toilet brush – Choose one with stiff bristles to scrub the bowl and under the rim.
  • Cleaning cloths and sponges – Have separate cloths or sponges to use on the toilet versus other surfaces.
  • Glass cleaner – Use a quality glass cleaner for mirrors and windows to cut through soap scum.
  • Disinfecting wipes – Keep disinfecting wipes handy to sanitize surfaces and do spot cleaning.

Develop a Schedule

Cleaning the bathroom once a week is usually sufficient to keep it looking its best. Determine a set day and time each week you can tackle the bathroom. For example, Saturday mornings might work well.

Planning a regular cleaning routine makes the task feel less daunting. You’ll also help prevent buildup that requires more scrubbing later.

Prioritize Tasks

Focus first on the dirtiest areas of the bathroom each week. The priority should be:

  • Toilet – Scrub the bowl well with a toilet brush. Clean all surfaces, including the seat, tank, base, and handles with a disinfecting wipe or all-purpose cleaner.
  • Shower/tub – Use a shower spray or all-purpose cleaner and sponge to remove soap scum and mildew. Rinse and squeegee the walls to prevent water spots.
  • Sink – Wipe down the vanity, faucet, handles, and mirror with an all-purpose cleaner or glass cleaner.
  • Floor – Sweep then mop the floor with a cleaning solution suited for tile or linoleum.

Once the grimiest areas are clean, move on to less dirty spots like the walls, cabinets, and light fixtures.

Don’t Forget Details

It’s easy to overlook certain bathroom cleaning tasks. Be sure to include:

  • Wiping down walls and baseboards
  • Cleaning out corners and crevices
  • Disinfecting handles and knobs
  • Removing hair and gunk from drains
  • Cleaning under and behind the toilet

Paying attention to these detail areas will keep your bathroom truly spotless.

Maintain Cleanliness Between Cleanings

Doing little tasks during the week helps cut down on overall cleaning time. Get into the habit of:

  • Hanging up towels – Prevent mildew by hanging towels to dry completely after use.
  • Wiping down counters – Use a quick swipe of a disinfecting wipe on counters after each use.
  • Rinsing the tub – Take 30 seconds after a shower to rinse walls and tiles to stop buildup.
  • Cleaning up clutter – Return products to cabinets and hampers to keep surfaces clear.


A sparkling clean bathroom improves your home’s atmosphere and helps family members stay healthy. Following a simple weekly cleaning routine and daily maintenance keeps your bathroom pristine without requiring hours of labor. Be sure to use quality cleaning products and give attention to detail. Consistency is key – make bathroom cleaning a habit!
