A Spring Cleaning Checklist
Just like brushing and flossing your teeth, it’s good to clear out the buildup in your home so it’s fresh and clean.
And the bathroom is no exception. Although you may dread this part of your cleaning list, once you break it down into simple steps it’s much more manageable.
- Toilet: Get the worst part over with first. Start on the inside, then work your way to the outside. Consider using tablets placed in the tank to clean the toilet with every flush.
- Tub: Try this natural tactic on the bathtub: cut a grapefruit in half and sprinkle salt on it. Use the grapefruit as a scrub for a deep cleaning that leaves behind a wonderful scent. For mildew or mold, soak cotton balls in bleach and let them sit in the grout for 24 hours.
- Sink: After you give the whole sink area a good scrubbing, try using a cut cucumber to restore the shine to the metal fixtures.
- Mirror: Wipe down the mirrors with glass cleaner. Want to avoid streaks? Try using newspapers instead of paper towels.
- Floors: To get the floor sparkling, try using water, baking soda, and lemon juice as a floor cleaner that also smells great.
- Shower curtain: Some shower curtains can be put in the washer and dryer. For vinyl or plastic liner, clean it off with detergent and bleach to remove mold.
And you’re done! That’s one less room to worry about cleaning, and a sparkling room you can enjoy while brushing your teeth.
