Bathroom Bliss – A Few Cleaning Tips

Flood 1

Bathroom Bliss? This looks more like a Disaster!

This is our newly remodeled upstairs bathroom. The Christmas flood was good for something at least. Obviously it is not finished just yet since it has no mirror, but that will come later. We love our new bathroom, and to help keep it sparkling clean and in tip-top shape, we have a few easy cleaning tips and tricks.

Cleaning Tips

First off, the Products~

Toilet Bowl Cleaner, Scrubbing Bubbles, Chlorox Wipes, Glass Cleaner, Paper Towels, Sponges, Scrub Brush, Latex Gloves, and Plastic Bags.

Then, the Organization~

As you can see, all of the supplies for cleaning fit into our handy plastic tub, except for the paper towels and the plastic bags (the plastic bags are tucked inside the paper towel roll).

Everything tucks into the vanity cabinet (under the sink) for convenient storage. This way everything is handy-dandy when you need a more thorough cleaning. We keep a supply box like this in every bathroom. You can see our Non-Adhesive Contact Paper lining the shelf.

Tip Time~

Now, obviously, we all know what to do with the toilet bowl cleaner, but I keep a small toilet brush tucked back behind the toilet so we can swish and swipe every morning…very quick, very easy. This way we don’t have any really hard scrubbing clean-up when we do our weekly cleaning.

We line the trash can with a plastic bag…recycling, yes! This also helps keep the trash can clean.

Whenever we use the sink, we dry and polish it up with the towel. And every night before bed, we use the glass cleaner and a paper towel to shine up the sink, faucet, and counter top…easy-peasy.

Here’s the shower / tub… oh, how we L.O.V.E. our new shower! Notice the purple arrow pointing to the squeegy? This makes shower clean up so much easier. When we are finished showering, we simply use the squeegy to wipe down the shower doors, and shower walls. We use a towel to shine up all of the chrome fixtures, and our shower always looks gorgeous.

These are just a few simple tips that really do not add a lot of time to your daily routine, but save a lot when it comes to cleaning your bathroom!

I hope you found these tips useful. Do you have any cleaning tips? I would love to here about them in the comments!

  1. Love the new bathroom and that contact paper design is very pretty. You know I never thought to line our trash can with a plastic bag. I always buy the liners. I could have been saving so much money. Great tips. No more liners for me, hello Walmart and Target bags. 🙂

    1. I’m glad you found the tips helpful. Personally, I only save the Target bags (and put the others in the recycle bin) because they are thicker and better quality…and I have an endless supply since I am always at target. LOL

    1. Hahaha! I’ve had a few of those experiences when I came home from months in the hospital with my daughter and my now ex hadn’t bothered to clean the bathroom…a spray bottle with pure bleach works wonders on getting mold of the shower walls…even in the grout. BLECH!

  2. Love the tips! i need to be more vigilant at cleaning daily. When I have done it was beautiful how lovely my house was. I will try it again. I do like the idea of doing the clean up at night. With my four little ones the bathroom gets messy after each time they go to the bathroom. I would go in there after each time and kill myself wiping and wiping and picking up scraps of toilet paper or whatever outfit they dumped on the floor. If I just do it at night (or before someone comes over) then I won’t obsess nearly as much!

    1. Don’t kill yourself, Rochelle…just keep it simple. If it’s easy, you’ll stick with it. I don’t know how old your kids are, or if they’re boys or girls, but when my son was young, I had a container of cheerios for him in the bathroom. He would take a few and throw them in the toilet…target practice! It really helped in the keeping it where it belonged department… LOL

  3. I have to tear out my bathroom and redo it as the floor is coming up and the shower doesn’t work etc. Very old and original. Thankfully I have a second one, but I really have been dragging my feet on this. Your bathroom turned out great! I need to put together my own little plastic tub for my supplies. I keep going and getting each product. Great idea! Thanks!

    1. Well, that bathroom was nearly 42-years-old and all original, so it was really a Godsend that we had that flood I got to get it re-done. I am in love with it! Everything is brand mew, except for the medicine cabinet, but Luke took that and cleaned it all up and painted it with a Rustoleum paint, and now it looks brand new inside and out too! 🙂

  4. Great tips there Lorelai! I hate dirty bathroom and to admit, I think I did not really do the right thing about cleaning the bathroom. Thanks for your great post. I Love the tips! I follow your blog to gain more ideas.

    Keep it up and more power 🙂

  5. Your bathroom looks pristine! I’m bad for always having things on my bathroom counter. It’s one place I can’t seem to get organized. I’m following you back from the Let’s Connect Hop.
