Tips on Cleaning Your Bathroom Properly: Areas to Focus On

A bathroom is the only other place aside from your bedroom where you’re entitled to privacy. Some homeowners go to great lengths just to make their bathrooms beautiful and comfortable. However, like any other house, the bathroom must also be thoroughly cleaned to ensure consistent comfort and functionality. 

Some people don’t know much about cleaning bathrooms apart from traditional methods, such as scrubbing everything. Don’t worry, because we’re here to remedy that! 

In this article, we list down some helpful tips on how you can clean your bathroom better. That said, here are some areas to focus on:

Shower and Bathtub

Your shower is essentially what you use to be clean. If your shower is dirty, then chances are you might be bathing in contaminated water—which doesn’t sound like a good idea. 

To clean your shower, pour an ample amount of white vinegar into a plastic bag. The plastic bag should be big enough to fit the showerhead nozzle. Tie the plastic bag around the showerhead for a couple of hours to clean the insides.

If you have a bathtub, the simplest way to clean it is to apply a bathtub cleaning solution and let it sit for about 20 minutes before scrubbing it.

Tiles and Counter

Since a bathroom gets wet, it can affect your tiles and bathroom counter pretty severely. Spray the tile floors and counter with an all-purpose cleaning solution and turn on the shower. The shower should be set to hot to produce steam. 

When there’s enough amount of steam, close the door to the bathroom for about 15 minutes. Once that’s done, wipe the floor and counter to clean them.


People tend to use traditional toilet cleaners to clean their toilets, but many people don’t know that baking soda is an effective toilet cleaning agent. Simply pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl, and let it sit for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Afterwards, brush it and flush it. If you still see a bit of dirt and discoloration, it’s best to repeat the process.


The sink can be relatively easy to deal with, as opposed to other areas of your bathroom. Start by pouring white vinegar or baking soda down the drain, then flush it out using hot water. For the faucet, you can clean it using disinfecting wipes, such as Clorox wipes.

Bathroom Mirror

There’s no bathroom without a mirror, so it has to be cleaned as well. Fog forms on your bathroom mirror after a bath, and it can take several minutes if you leave it as is. Wiping it away doesn’t do the trick on its own because the moisture in the air will only make it reappear.

The good thing, though, is that cleaning a bathroom mirror can be done in 3 low-effort steps.

  • Using dishwashing liquid, add water to it and apply it to your mirror. You can use a paper towel or clean cloth to clean the surface of the mirror. If you do this every week, condensation can be prevented.
  • Using a hot air dryer, point it at the mirror to remove the condensation faster. 
  • Using shaving cream is an unconventional method, but it works. Like the previous methods, it also removes condensation and prevents it from forming on your mirror.
