Are you wondering how you can make your bathroom smell fresh and clean? Many people don’t clean their bathrooms until they find out they are having company, and sometimes this may even be last minute. It’s typical that your guests will need to use your bathroom at least once while they are at your house. If your goal is to make your home look and smell like a luxury spa, there are a few tips you can follow to help you along the way.
Quick Hacks for Bathroom Cleaning
Plastic Grocery Bag on Door Knob
Before you start cleaning, grab a plastic grocery bag and hang it on the doorknob in your bathroom. This allows you to gather trash rather quickly instead of emptying your bathroom trash can all over again.
Use Disinfectant Wipes
If you are in a hurry, and you want convenience, it can’t get any easier than disinfectant wipes. You will even probably be able to clean your entire bathroom much faster using just a container of the cleaning wipes. If you run one of these wipes over the bathroom counter and sink, you will see just how fast your entire surface will shine.
Get Rid of Clutter
If you are one of those people that has hair products and makeup lying around your bathroom, make sure to put them away. Just open up a drawer and throw everything inside for an instant clutter-free and clean counter.
Clean Bathroom Mirrors
Many bathroom mirrors are probably splattered with toothpaste and much more if you have kids. If your guests use your bathroom, this is probably going to turn them off. Porcelain & fiberglass refinishing always works wonders. Before using this though, give your mirrors a quick splash of glass cleaner and wipe them down quickly to avoid spots and to brighten your entire bathroom.
Glass Cleaner on Fixtures
While you still have your glass cleaner out, spray some of it on various sink fixtures and clean them, too, for instant sparkle.
Use Essential Oil
Bathrooms can leave unwanted lingering odors. To make sure that your bathroom remains clean and smelling nice, add a few drops of essential oil to the inside of your toilet paper roll.
Clean Toilet Bowl
It is true that a regular toilet brush can quickly clean your toilet bowl. However, it can cause problems when you have dripping water from the toilet bowl when you take it out. Besides, no one has an additional 15 minutes to let the cleaner sit in the bowl. A better option is to use a Clorox Toilet Wand System. It comes with disposable heads that you can connect to the wand.
That hand towel that you have sitting in your bathroom has probably been in there for weeks or months. Make sure that you swap that towel with a fresh one for your guests so they will think you actually do laundry on a regular basis.
Get Rid of Dirty Clothes
Do you have a hamper sitting near or in the bathroom filled with dirty clothes? If so, you can quickly just throw it in the bathtub with the curtain closed, or move it into the laundry room. They will never know.
