Here’s a quick stat: 95% of individuals agree that one of the scariest
rooms to clean in their home is the bathroom. You use it every day, which
causes an accumulation of dirt and mess. Let’s face it, bathrooms
can be gross. However, you took the plunge and hired a maid service. Everything
looks shiny and clean. But how do you make it last until your next cleaning
service? All it takes is five minutes a day to maintain your fresh bathroom.
Take one minute to clear away the surface. Use the 60 seconds to put away
hair dryers or straighteners, put toothbrushes back in their cradles,
and grab dirty towels off the sink. Look around to see if there are any
clothes strewn around the floor.
In the next minute, clean the surfaces of your bathroom. Have disinfectants,
toilet cleaners, and dryer sheets readily available under the counter.
Drop the toilet bowl cleaner in first, so it can do its magic while you
clean the other things. The dryer sheet is a useful way to catch loose
strands of hair and dust. Quickly wipe down the surface of your counters,
specifically noting toothpaste stains and spit marks. Go back to wipe
down the toilet too.
Are you feeling the pressure? Don’t worry, you’re almost done!
For the third minute, focus on the mirrors. You’ll be surprised
to see how easily toothpaste spittle appears in your reflection. Spray
it with your favorite cleaning product and wipe away the dirt. If your
mirrors are already clean, show some love to your faucets and handles.
You’re in the home stretch now! Take this minute to straighten up
your bathroom. Place fresh towels in the holder, check to see if there’s
enough toilet paper, and put back any shower curtain hooks that may have
popped out. You can also take a moment to arrange your toiletries and
personal care products on the counter.
In this final minute, take a breath, and examine the bathroom. Do you see
anything that could be re-arranged? Did you miss a spot in your dash to
clean everything in five minutes? This is your moment to do your final
clean, before you’re free to carry on with your life.
While it might seem like a lot, doing a five minute clean continually can
help keep your bathroom sparkling. You don’t even have to do all
five minutes in a row. If you have a minute here and there, take a moment
to tackle one of the steps. This way, you can prolong the nice clean before
your maids come back.
