Bathroom Zone Cleaning Routine – How To Deep Clean Your Bathroom

Let’s start with gathering our cleaning supplies. You can, of course, make homemade cleaning recipes (and I have a cheat sheet for that!), but these days I’m using store bought cleaners just to save myself some time. 

Here’s what I use:

I always start by putting my toilet bowl cleaner in the toilet. While that sits, I move over to the shower and remove all of the toiletry items. I throw away anything that is empty and set the rest aside.

Take down the shower curtain and curtain liner. Here’s a little trick I learned. You can wash the liner in the washing machine. I throw the curtain, liner, and a towel into the washer and let it do its thing. Of course, hang the shower liner to dry.

Now, spray down the shower with whatever cleaner you are using. My current favorite is Scrubbing Bubbles. Let that sit for a bit while you work in the cabinets. 

Remove all items from your bathroom cabinets and wipe out the cabinets. Declutter your items, reorganize them, and place them back inside the cabinets.

Before you tackle the sink, use a duster to get rid of any cobwebs in the corner of the ceiling. Dust light fixtures, and work your way down to the mirror. Clean the mirror, and then clean the counter top and sink. Next, wipe off the outside of the cabinets.

Finish cleaning the toilet making sure to wipe it down from the outside in with an all-purpose cleaner and rag. 

Once the toilet is clean, scrub the shower clean and rinse off. Replace toiletry items.

Empty wastebasket and clean out the trashcan before putting a new bag inside.

Lastly, sweep the floor clean and mop with your favorite mop and floor cleaner!

There are a couple of different ways to do zone cleaning. You could tackle all of this in one day, or as suggested in my free monthly cleaning calendars, you can divide all of these tasks up over the course of a week. It’s up to you and what fits your schedule best!
