How to Clean a Bathroom in 6 Parts

Often the most technical part of a deep house clean, the bathroom is also one of the most important considering its crucial role in maintaining good hygiene. So, we’ve gathered a few tips to help you get your bathroom back to its brand-new, germ-free form!

Shower Head

Despite often being forgotten, cleaning a shower head is a very important part of a bathroom deep clean. As you have surely noticed, the calcium build-up is only one of the problems of not cleaning a shower head. To do so, simply pour an ample amount of white vinegar into a plastic bag (a big enough one to fully submerge the entire head) and tie the end around it. Leave the head in the plastic bag overnight, and turn on the water in the morning to rinse.


While the toilet may be the most easily cleaned, it is still important to go over the basics as well as the more advanced steps. Pour disinfectant (it can be bleach, or a toilet cleaner product as well) into the toilet bowl. As an additional bonus, also leave the toilet brush inside the bowl during this process, in order to sanitize the brush too. Leave the cleaning product in the bowl for about 15 minutes, and flush to rinse. Keep the bathroom fan on and leave the door open to ensure proper ventilation during this process.

In order to clean the toilet seat and surrounding areas, use an old rag that will only be used for the toilet so as to avoid spreading germs from one part of the bathroom to the other. Bathroom disinfectant will work well here.


Similarly, bathroom disinfectant will work well for the sink. Of course, be sure to let the disinfectant do its work by leaving it for the allotted time on the package before wiping the surface clean. An old toothbrush can be a great help here in order to get in between the faucet and its handles, again using bathroom disinfectant.

Bathroom Walls

This step can also apply to bathroom ceilings or other surfaces. First, apply all-purpose cleaner to your chosen surfaces. Then, turn on the hot water in your shower until there is a significant amount of steam build-up. As soon as this happens, close the bathroom door, leaving the cleaner and steam to mix. After about 20 minutes, come back and rinse the respective surfaces.

General Bathroom Tile Mold

To specifically take on the mold growing in between your bathroom tiles, mix 200 ml of chlorine bleach with 4.5 liters of water. Then, take a stiff brush (preferably stiffer than an old toothbrush, that is) and apply the solution to one specific area at a time. Be sure to use rubber gloves for this last step, as well as be extra careful to not let the solution splatter on you or any surrounding surfaces. Leave the solution on the applied areas for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse. Throughout this process, prioritize good ventilation by leaving the bathroom door open and/or the bathroom fan on.

So, there are some tips for getting your bathroom back to being spotless.
