Hello Everyone!

Im going to be showing you a bathroom today that got a deep cleaning. This client just moved into her apartment only to find it looking a mess! 🤨 But no stress she booked with ASCC and I made sure to hit every spot, so she could feel comfortable in her new space.

Here are some easy steps to follow to get your bathroom up to code.

If it isn’t too cold out, open up your window{s} to let some fresh air in while you are cleaning.

Always clean from top to bottom so any dust or grime that falls down will not fall onto a newly cleaned surface.

Remove everything from the countertops and any shelving that you may have.  This will make it much easier to clean.

Dust and wipe down light fixtures with a microfiber cloth.

Open the windows and wipe down the inside of the window sills and tracks.  I love using my steam cleaner for this – a couple of blasts of the steam and a quick wipe with a paper towel takes care of it.  If you don’t have a steam cleaner, spray it down with a vinegar/water mixture and use a toothbrush to get into the corners and grooves.

Clean windows and mirrors.  I just spray them down with water and use my Norwex Window Cloth to clean and polish.  It is so much better than using window cleaner and there are NO streaks {even when the sun shines in!}.

Clean countertops and shelving with a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar and a microfiber cloth.  Dust and/or wipe down items from the counter tops and shelves as you replace them.

Clean the shower and bathtub with a 1:1 mixture of blue Dawn dishwashing detergent and vinegar.  This is pretty much the best thing I have found for getting rid of soap scum {I also learned from I Should be Mopping the Floors that it works even better if you heat the vinegar in the microwave before adding the dish soap}.  I keep some in a Scotch Brite scrubber {which makes for quick and easy scrub downs after showers!}. Try closing the shower curtain and running a hot shower for a minute or two to create some steam.  Spray or scrub with the bathroom cleaner, rinse {or steam} it off, and wipe with a microfiber cloth.

Take down and launder the window and shower curtains if needed.  I always add about 1 cup of vinegar to the wash.  If you have a lot of stains on your curtains try using 1 cup of baking soda in the laundry INSTEAD OF detergent and vinegar.  You can add the vinegar to the rinse cycle or run it through with vinegar on a short cycle afterwards as long as you are NOT mixing the vinegar and baking soda together at the same time!  Make sure you run your washer on warm instead of hot if you are washing a plastic shower curtain and remove it immediately to hang to dry.  It is also a good idea to throw a towel or two into the laundry with the shower curtain if you do not have anything else in there.

Clean the toilet.

Clean the floor and baseboards. Do a quick vacuum or sweep of the bathroom floors and wash down with the water and vinegar and a mop or microfiber cloth.

Clean the sink.  I always leave this towards the end as I use the sink to rinse out my microfiber cloths during the cleaning process.  Use the water/vinegar mixture and a microfiber cloth to wipe down the sink and polish the fixtures.  If your facet is starting to get any mineral build up affecting the water flow, use a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar in a plastic bag and secure it around the facet {or shower head} with an elastic band.  Leave overnight and then remove.

Try doing a good deep clean of your bathroom once per month.  The more you follow the daily cleaning tips, the less you will have to do.

Thanks For Letting Me In
