How to Clean Your Bathroom in 7 Minutes or Less (Using Baking Soda, Water, & Vinegar).


How to Clean Your Bathroom in 7 Minutes or Less (Using Baking Soda, Water, & Vinegar).
Most of my readers know that I try to be efficient. I’m not one of those women who just LOVES to clean. I do love a clean house and once I get going I feel great that I’m doing it, but if I can take less time cleaning the same space, I’m all for it. I’ve come up with a system that makes cleaning both of my bathrooms take less then 15 minutes. Deep cleaning the tub and shower  takes longer  but if you want to quickly go over them it will only take an additional few minutes to the 7 I’ve mentioned. I’ve included how I clean the tub and shower as optional steps if you have the time.

What you will need:

Grab some paper towels or washable rags. I used paper towels in this example but often do use cloth rags that I can wash and reuse.

 
You’ll also want to have rubber gloves, and cleaning supplies for the tub, shower, toilet, mirror and counter. You can use vinegar and baking soda to do everything you need in the bathroom. This also saves on time and money. (However, if someone in your household is sick you will want to use more powerful disinfectants.)

Start the stop watch and begin.

1- Quickly take everything off of the counter top (put it away), lift the rugs (shake them out) and pull the garbage can and everything that goes on the floor and counters out of the bathroom. I just set mine outside of the bathroom on the floor.

2- Apply cleaning solutions in this order.

Vinegar water can be used on the mirrors, if you have glass around the shower it will clean that, on the toilet rims and base, counter tops, sink and the floor. I use the baking soda in the toilet and tub. See how to clean the toilet here. For the tub, clean it similarly to the toilet, just sprinkle about 3/4 Cup all over the tub and pour about 2 cups vinegar on top. It will fizzle up and clean well while fizzing.

3- Now work in reverse. Clean what you put the cleaning solutions on last. Grab a paper towel and clean the mirror. Then clean off the counter tops and the sink.

Next use a brush and clean the bowl of the toilet, grab a few more paper towels and wipe the toilet rims and base (working from the cleanest areas to the dirtiest).

4- Then get on hands and knees and spray floor with vinegar water. Clean starting from the furthest corner working your way out to the hall. If you added cleaner to your tub and shower quickly scrub and wipe them up last.

5- Replace the rugs and garbage can.

And you are done.

Follow these steps quickly and you will have a clean bathroom in 7 minutes or less.

    We love vinegar as a cleaner, but I’ve never tried baking soda! I’m excited to try it!

  4. I hate cleaning the bathrooms! I have four boys, so as you can imagine it is a nightmare. Thanks for the tips, can’t wait to try them out!

    Love to clean with vinegar as well. Keep my shower surround and shower curtain liner clean by spraying down with a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water after every shower. Use a dish wand filled with a 50/50 solution of Dawn dish soap and vinegar to clean the tub sides and floor. Do this at the end of your shower and the tub rinses as you do. The tub area stays clean and shiny.

  6. Sandy says:

    This is the routine I follow also. The only difference is I use vinegar and alcohol in a spray bottle for toilet, sink, mirror and I use vinegar and Dawn in another spray bottle for tub and shower. I use paper towels all the time also because you can just pitch the germs. I use some toilet paper on some parts of the toilet because it seems to catch hair better (yes I know, gross!!)I like the baking soda for the tub idea! Much more economical that toilet bowl cleaner.

  13. I have heard a lot of suggestions about cleaning the toilet. If it is really dirty I have found that dropping 2 lysol tablets into the tank and leaving it for about a hour. Flush and your toilet will be self cleaning every time you flush.

    Best regards!

    Thank you for starting this flow of great information from all your readers. I had forgotten some of them and need to try again – tired of spending money on new products that don’t always work as well as needed, especially on limited Senior incomes.

  15. I saw this post and went home to try it out on my bathroom sink (which was very dirty). I plugged the drain, filled it with a splash of vinegar and added about a tablespoon of baking soda. It instantly got to work and I used some paper towels to rinse both mine and my fiance’s sinks. It worked magically! I couldn’t stop cleaning everything in the bathroom. Thanks for the awesome tips :)

  16. CheapSkate says:

    Spray WINDEX or any glass cleaner on the rim of the toliet, let sit for 3-5 minutes then wipe.

  17. Jeri says:

    Great idea, but I’m surprised that no one has commented about using washable (reusable) cleaning cloths/rags rather than paper towels. More economical and more environmentally friendly.

  18. Gail says:

    Something else related to your topic: the toilet brush. Your choice is a good one — all plastic/nylon. Don’t EVER use one with the nylon bristles twisted into two heavy wires. When the bristles smash, the wire framework scratches your porcelain bowl. Dirt and bacteria get in the scratches making it harder and harder to clean as you get more scratches. Mine is a plastic handle with nylon yarn for the head — very porcelain friendly.

  19. Margaret O'Donnell says:

    hello I havent got face book, but would like to have your tips available to me I am a pensioner 73 years old. & would love all the $$$$ saving tips.
    Thank you Margaret

  20. Great routine! I just want to add something we’ve done in our home as well to reduce clean up. We have a special needs son and cleaning up after him can get pretty tiring. Out of necessity we’ve had to create what we call a Urifunnel. It’s a portable urinal for boys and men who need assistance. It helps prevent splashing and definitely reduces cleanup time like the rest of your tips.
