So...Spring Cleaning::Bathroom

If you have more than one bathroom, you can decide if you want to work on multiple bathrooms simultaneously or if you want to schedule other weeks for your other bathrooms.

Day 1::clean up.  you're probably catching on to the pattern by now.  day one is your normal cleanup.  put everything in its place.  throw away all garbage and remove any items that do not belong in this room.  clean the toilet.  clean the tub/shower.  clean the counter/sink.  empty the trash.  clean the mirror.  sweep and mop.  whatever you do for a normal bathroom cleaning, do that today.

for an extra sparkle, windex all surfaces after you clean them with your normal cleaner.

Day 2::wipe down. get your bleach water and rag.  wipe all walls, baseboards, door frames, air vents, top edges of bath/shower, door knobs - basically anything you can wipe down that you don't normal get to on the normal bathroom cleaning days.  get in all the nooks, crannies, and corners.

if there are any decorative items on your walls that you do not love, get rid of them.

Day 3::cupboards, drawers, shelves.  this is the declutter day.  take everything out of your cupboards, drawers, and shelves.  sort through it all.  throw away anything you can - empty toothpaste tubes, old toothbrushes, broken hair elastics, anything you can get rid of.  consolidate anything you can - bandaids, Q-tips, cotton balls, tampons, whatever you have in your cupboards that you can consolidate, do it.

do you have hair product, lotions, nail polishes, makeup that you never ever use but you continue to store?  get rid of it.  i dare you.  keep only the things you use, and the things you love. 

if you are low on anything, make note on your shopping list of what you need to stock up on.

wipe out every drawer and wipe off every shelf/cupboard.

put everything back in a neat, organized way.
if you need any storage containers, make note of what you want to purchase and plan when you want to purchase it.

Day 4::wash towels, bath mats, & shower curtain.  pretty self explanatory.  wash and dry all towels and bath mats.  fold them neatly and put them away.  do it all today - don't leave them sitting in your laundry room for a week.

wash your shower curtain. 
if it's nasty, make note to buy a new one.

Day 5::fix its. make a list of all the things that need to be fixed or replaced in your bathroom.  light bulbs, towel racks, knobs and hinges, missing shower curtain rings, bath mats, anything you can think of.  if you can fix it/replace it today, do it.  if you can't do it today, make note of what you want to buy and when. 

you won't regret getting some of these little projects done.

P.S.  What is your favorite bathroom cleansers?  How do you solve hard water problems?  How in the world do you clean glass shower doors???  Especially ones that have had hard water stains on them for years and years?  Please share any tips and/or secrets you have for getting your bathroom sparkling clean. may also like::

If you want a sparkling shower all year round then i suggest you use a product called "Crystal Clear Shower & glass treatment". Once you put it on the glass, frame & tiles you will never have to use any cleaning products ever again. It is simply wiped on with a chux and let to dry overnight and it will stay on the surface for 12 months. The purpose of the product is to stop ALL soap scum & grime from sticking to the surface and it just rinses off every time leaving the shower sparkling clean. It is also excellent for perspex windows in RV's as it stops the perspex getting scratched or aged. The website is
