Tips for Sticking to a Manageable Bathroom Cleaning Schedule

Sticking to a checklist is the easiest way to prioritize cleaning tasks, but here are even more tips to keep bathrooms in even the busiest households neat and organized.

  • Use Apps to Send You Reminders
If you have a hectic schedule, you can rely on helpful apps to keep you on track. Task cleaning apps like Spotless send you regular reminders of what needs to be done, as well as help you create organized lists for every room in your house.
  • Vinegar Soak for Shower Heads

If you notice that your showerhead is caked with lime deposits and hard water stains, let it soak in diluted white vinegar to easily clean it and return it to its original shine.

  • Squeegee Shower Doors Frequently

Keep a squeegee in your shower to make wiping down your shower door easy. This will stop soap scum from proliferating and keep shower doors streak-free.

  • Make Trash Day Easier

Line your bathroom trash cans with multiple trash bags. That way, you don't need to reline the can each time you empty the trash.

  • Save Your Old Toothbrushes

One of the handiest cleaning accessories? An old toothbrush! The soft bristles are great for getting into hard-to-reach spots and gently scrubbing away stains.
