Which room in American homes gets deep cleaned most often? Hint: It’s the same room we dread cleaning the most! You guessed it – the bathroom. And, according to the American Cleaning Institute’s 2018 National Cleaning Survey, the one item in our homes that is cleaned most often is – the toilet.
It doesn’t have to be a task to despise! Here is a set of simple tips to help maximize your cleaning routine:
- Use a daily shower cleaner to keep shower and tub surfaces free of soap scum, mildew stains and hard water deposits. When you mist surfaces right after showering while the walls are wet and warm, you won’t have to rinse, wipe or scrub them.
- Keep a variety of wipes in a basket under your sink or somewhere else hidden away and safe if you have small children. Pick up wipes for your windows and mirrors, toilet handles and faucets, and countertops.
- Grab a toilet wand or brush to tidy up as needed.
- Dry faucets and handles after use to prevent water, soap, and toothpaste spots and stains.
- Keep your shower doors and curtains open after a shower or bath to allow them to air dry to prevent mildew.
- Have an all-purpose cleaner or a foam-based cleaning pad handy for some of your tougher clean-ups.
