The Ultimate Bathroom Cleaning Checklist (Step-By-Step Guide)

The Ultimate Bathroom Cleaning Checklist (Step-By-Step Guide)

In terms of likeability, a big old bathroom clean isn’t at the top of most peoples’ lists. Just because it’s not our favourite thing to do though, doesn’t mean we don’t have to do it. We thought we’d make things a little easier and help you plan out your next big bathroom clean using a trusty checklist.

Best tips for cleaning using this checklist

  1. Print this out or copy/paste each task into a checklist app and cross them off as you go to help you feel like you’re accomplishing things, bit by bit.
  2. Start from the top of the room and work down to the floor, so you’re not having to redo the lower parts of the room when bits of dust, dirt, grime, cobwebs, etc. fall down as you clean the higher areas.
  3. Don’t feel like you have to do everything in one session. You can absolutely break the big clean up into sections and tackle a few tasks at once, then leave the rest for another day.
