Most of us find cleaning our bathrooms tedious and dread cleaning them. Cleaning your bathroom sink, faucets, toilet, bathtub, and other bathroom surfaces can be hectic sometimes. 

But, above all these things, the bathroom surface needs extra care. If you fail to clean your bathroom regularly, say at least once a week, you voluntarily invite germs and disease-causing microorganisms into your house.

9 Easy Tips to Maintain Bathroom Surface

By leaving your bathroom fixtures unclean, you are paving the way for scum to build up and for stains to discolor the surfaces of the bathroom fixtures.

Clear the Area

As the first step, remove all the items from their usual spot, especially if you clean your bathroom surfaces after months. Everything means everything: remove the trash bin, used towels, rugs, and things kept on the counters, and place them outside the bathroom. 

Dust and Sweep

Next, dust and sweep the entire bathroom. Grab a duster with a long handle to remove the cobwebs from any corner of your bathroom easily. Use a stepladder if you cannot get the cobwebs out, even with the long-handled duster. 

After clearing the dust, sweep the entire bathroom surface or use a vacuum cleaner that you can use on wet surfaces. The final step is essential, as sweeping or vacuum cleaning will ensure the bathroom surface is free from strands of hair or dust.

Scrub down the Shower or Bathtub

Scrub down the shower and bathtub with a general-purpose cleaning product. But you can use this cleaner only if you clean the bathroom daily. Some stains accumulated for months can’t be removed with a standard cleaner. Tougher stains or scum may require an acid-based cleaner.

Wipe Down All Surfaces

If you have towel racks or shelves where you keep your products, take a cloth or sponge and clean them. Wipe the entire rack with dish soap and water for a shiny finish. 

Follow the same steps to clean the windowsills, doors, blinds, and baseboards. For the floor, fill a bucket with warm water and mix the recommended amount of general-purpose cleaning liquid.

Clean the Faucets and Rinse the Surfaces

After doing all these things without missing any steps, move on to the fixed faucets in your bathroom. Just dip a small portion of the cleaning sponge and scrub it over the bathroom fixtures and faucets. Ensure you clean all the bathroom fixtures before mopping the entire bathroom. 

Reorganize your Bathroom Essentials

After rinsing the bathroom fixtures and floor, reorganize the things you kept out of the bathroom. Throw out the things you think are unnecessary. Replace the items that are worn out, such as an empty shampoo bottle, with new ones.

Clean the Bathroom Cubicle and Countertops

Now, close the curtain or door for the bath cubicle. If your bath cubicle has a glass door, spray the glass cleaner all over the door and wipe it down to ensure a smooth finish.

After cleaning your bath cubicle, move on to the other faucets and countertops available in the bathroom. Spray the all-purpose cleaner over the faucets and countertops, and leave it for some time if you have hard stains and scum.

Scrub the stained area before wiping it down. For cleaning your mirrors, use a glass cleaner and wipe it with a soft cloth. To clean the cabinets, you can use a sponge dampened with water.

Get Those Stains Out!

If you have not cleaned your toilet for a few days, use an acid-based cleaner to scrub the entire toilet bowl before flushing it. If you are cleaning your toilet daily, then cleaning will be complete using an all-purpose cleaner. To clean the outer part of the toilet, spray the all-purpose cleaner and wipe it dry with a piece of cloth or a dry sponge.

The Final Step

After completing all the above steps, submerge a mop in the bucket filled with cleaning solution. Squeeze it before cleaning the entire bathroom floor. Leave it for some time so that it will get dry. Once dry, replace the empty trash bin and new towels and rugs. 


If you follow the tips above and do them daily, you can easily keep your bathroom floor clean and dry. Here is a helpful tip to keep your bathroom free from unwanted dust!

Always keep a handheld vacuum cleaner in your bathroom to remove any hair or dust on the floor immediately.
