In case you missed it, you can read this post to see what this series is all about.
I always thought that keeping the bathroom clean was a difficult task before–then you add in two kids and it’s become mission impossible. I miss the days of clean toilets, mirrors and sink!
I truly believe that with a little time spent on it daily that having a clean bathroom can turn into mission possible! Here are some ideas that I’ve brainstormed to do this:
1) Keep a basket handy in the bathroom to clear the countertops for quicker cleaning.
2) Keep a separate cleaning bin under the cabinet for cleaners. I can keep a clean cloth on the bottom of the basket and safe cleaners on top so when I pull out the basket, the cleaners are ready to be used. There’s no scrambling around the house to find a cleaner.
3) Spray down the sink, toilet and shower and let everything set. Find another task for 10 minutes (such as starting a load of laundry) and then come back to easily clean everything.
4) Teach kids to clean up after themselves. Lay a cloth on the counter nightly for them to wipe down the sink after they finish their nightly routine of brushing their teeth. This way, there won’t be any caked on toothpaste to deal with the next day.
5) Bathroom closet organization. I’ve actually already done this and have actually kept up on keeping it fairly organized. It makes it easier when I do my low-inventory list to see what’s low on stock.
6) Organize the bathroom cabinet drawers and keep a minimum of things in there. Any extras or things that aren’t used often can be stored in the bathroom closet.
7) Keep a small vacuum in the bathroom closet for quick clean-up. I have one of these now and recommend it!
8) Add it into my weekly routine to mop the floors and scrub down all bathroom fixtures.
These are just a few ways that I’ve brainstormed for keeping the bathroom clean. What tips do you have to add to the list?
Stay tuned for another day of brainstorming tomorrow on another “stresser.”
