Firstly, as with virtually any form of cleaning, you should aim to work from top to bottom, that is to say, clean the upper surfaces before the lower, in this way you will avoid splashing areas you have already attended to, and having to redo work.
- Clear any surfaces by moving any toiletries, pots and packets out of the way
- Wipe over chrome fittings with a proprietary scale remover and leave per instructions
- Pour a generous amount of bleach up around the rim of the toilet and leave
- Clear any cobwebs or dust from top of walls and ceiling
- Wipe with a lightly bleached cloth all around your window frame and inside the frame of any opening widows. This will prevent mould growing
- Wipe a damp rag on the top surface of any wall cabinets. Rinse and repeat.
- Clean mirrors and shower panels with a clear proprietary window cleaner and a piece of kitchen roll. Re-wipe with a dry sheet
- Rinse scale remover from chrome fittings
- Spray all surfaces with bathroom cleaner designed to remove soap, scum and body fat ensuring that you spray all around and underneath tap and shower fittings
- Leave the cleaner on the surfaces for a few minutes (dependent upon manufacturers instructions) then fill sink and bath with a couple of inches of warm water.
- Take a clean j-cloth or similar and use it to flood the surfaces and taps allowing the water to flow back into the basin/shower. Repeat this procedure then drain away the water and rinse basin/bath
- If you have a detachable shower head, flood the areas carefully with clean cold water to rinse, otherwise use a rinsed j-cloth
- Run over the whole area with another slightly damp cloth to dry and polish
- Use a toilet brush inside the loo to thoroughly scrub with the bleached water then flush.
- Pour a surfactant toilet cleaner in the bowl (this sticks to the sides and gives a fresh smell) but make sure you have flushed away bleach first
- Finally give the floor a sweep and a wipe down with a moist cloth (depending on floor covering).
- Last thing, open a window for an hour or so and get some fresh air in. This will keep the bathroom fresh and inhibit the growth of mould on windows and ceilings
Use this as a guide for your bathroom cleaning and you’ll keep it clean and fresh.
