Spring is just around the corner, and for many people, that means it’s time for some serious spring cleaning.
While you may have big plans to get various parts of your home in order this year, if your spring cleaning will involve your bathroom, here is a helpful checklist to use when you are ready to get started.
Bathroom Spring Cleaning: What to Do
- Get rid of the garbage – In addition to the garbage in waste baskets, remove other garbage that may be lingering in drawers or cabinets, on shelves, etc. A good rule of thumb to follow when you are wondering whether to throw something away or not is to get rid of it if you have not used in within the past 8 months.
- Get rid of the clutter – Lots of things that don’t necessarily belong in the bathroom can end up getting stored there over time. So, take a critical look at the items in your bathroom and decide whether they actually need to be there (versus whether they can be stored in a roomier, more appropriate place in your home).
- Replace old, stained linens – If it’s been more than a few years since you have replaced the linens (e.g., towels, rugs, etc.) in your bathroom – and if these items are stained and/or get a lot of use, now’s the time to replace them.
- Shake out and/or wash rugs and/or shower curtains – For the rugs by your tub, around your toilet and/or by your vanity – as well as for other items like shower curtains, take them outside, shake them off and then wash them (according to the manufacturer’s instructions). A simple washing can really brighten up these bathroom features.
- Carefully clean the tub, sink and toilet – And do so using non-abrasive, non-caustic cleansers so that you are effectively removing the dirt without damaging the surfaces of these features.
- Carefully clean the other fixtures – Other smaller features to clean can include (but may not be limited to) the faucets, the shelves, the mirrors, the light switches, etc.
- Don’t forget about the ceilings and corners – Using a duster with a handle, be sure to clean the dust bunnies and other dirt that has accumulated in the corners and/or around the ceilings of your bathroom(s).
