Spring Cleaning Bathroom Checklist

1. Toilet Deep Cleaning

Let’s stop beating around the bush. The thing that everybody hates to clean; the commode. Pour some bleach into your toilet bowl and let it sit overnight. This should help loosen up stains and crud. You can remove rust stains using a pumice stone. If you are experiencing any problems with your toilet, you should review this Troubleshooting Guide.

2. Out with the Old, In with the New

Spring cleaning means getting rid of all of the extra and unnecessary items that have found a way into your bathroom. Get rid of clothes, towels, and wash cloths that are no longer needed. If you are in need of more storage space, you can think about upgrading your bathroom vanity. The bathroom is the new home showcase and can increase the value of your property exponentially!

4. Trash Bin Woes

Spring is the time to give your trash bin a thorough cleaning. Scrub the trash bin inside and out with warm water to help dislodge dust and grime. Don’t forget to recycle in the bathroom!

5. Shower Glass and Mirrors

Wipe down all shower glass, mirrors, and windows (if you have them). You can use glass cleaner or a simple vinegar solution to get rid of hard water stains. Any smudges on glass will be quite apparent so you should be proactive about wiping down all glassware in the bathroom at least once a week.

6. Rugs

Toss your bathroom rug in the washer to remove dirt, dust, or grime that has accrued over the past year. This is one of the simplest Spring Cleaning bathroom tasks.

7. Exhaust Fan & Central Heating Vents

Remove the trim surrounding your exhaust fan and central heating ducts. Wipe down the exhaust fan blades with a damp cloth and do the same to the vents. This dust is blows into your bathroom every time your fan/ventilation system turns on! This will decrease the amount of time you spend cleaning the bathroom throughout the rest of the year. If you need a new exhaust fan, you should check out Panasonic’s 3rd Gen WhisperGreen Ventilation Fan. It detects humidity in the air and adjusts the speed of the fans cycle to lower the amount of moisture in the bathroom.

8. Ring Around the Rosie

The infamous ring around the bathtub can present a unique challenge. Make sure you use a powerful cleaning agent and hot water to remove these stains. This will drastically increase the look and feel of your bathroom.

9. Shower Curtains

Some fabrics can be placed in the washer with warm water and mild detergent. Read the label on the curtain for instructions. Rubber/plastic shower curtains can be scrubbed with a brush. Moist conditions in the bathroom make shower enclosures susceptible to mold. Read this article to learn how to get rid of shower mold.
