Dusting and De-cluttering Bathrooms

If these areas are very dirty, use a home made cleaning solution or diluted commercial cleanser and wipe clean with a damp cloth. Clean pictures and other wall art by gently wiping the glass and the frame with a clean, damp cloth. Remove all clutter, dirty clothes and empty out the trashcan.
Remove shower and window curtains, towels and bathroom rugs. Replace with clean, fresh ones. Remove light fixtures and wipe clean. Wash windows inside and outside.
Cleaning Bathroom Tiles, Floor and Fixtures
Cleaning bathroom tiles, floor and fixtures such as the sink, tub, shower and cabinets requires more effort and time. Begin by emptying out the linen and medicine cabinets of all the unnecessary clutter, discard outdated products and make a list of items that need to be replaced. Scrub the sink, toilet and tub using a commercial or natural cleaning product and a sponge or scrubber. Do wear disposable gloves to protect the hands from germs as well as the chemicals in the cleaners.
