Cleaning the Bathroom

Cleaning the bathroom is never ending. Arm yourself with the cleaning products necessary to do a good job.
Start at the top and go down.
Clean all light fixtures, vacuum vent fans.
Clean the mirrors, shower doors and pictures.
Wash the shower curtain, iron it and reinstall it.
Shine the faucets and chrome using glass cleaner, you may want to use your old cleaning toothbrush for the hard-to-reach areas.
Wipe down the top and sides (both in and out) of doors using damp cloth, remember to wipe the hinges. Take care to remove fingerprints.
Take everything out of the shelves and clean.
Wipe off the bottles an jars.
Get shoebox sized plastic containers from the Dollar Store for your toiletries. I use one for nailcare, one for bandages, one for cold/flu products, one for dental and one for other assorted toiletries.
Combine any 1/2 used bottles of shampoo, etc. **Take care not to mix cleaning products.
Fold your towels the same way and place in cabinet with fold to the outside. Place sets together.
Scour sinks, toilet, tub. Use glass cleaner on sides of toilet as well. Use 50%chlorine bleach and 50% water and a toothbrush to clean around the base of the toilet.
Scrub the floor with vinegar water.
**If you have glass shower doors, after cleaning, use a product like "Rain-X" to make the water "sheet" off the glass preventing water spots.
