A clean and ordered bathroom provides a serene start to the day. While my tiny bathroom could never be considered spa-like, I appreciate it so much when it is spotless and filled with good smells. Below are the steps I take to achieve a thoroughly clean space. For most surfaces, I use the lavender vinegar solution in my last post, as well as baking soda.

  1. Declutter the cabinets. Remove everything and consider each item. Throw away expired makeup and other liquid products you haven’t used up within a year. If you haven’t used up a product within a year, you haven’t been using it. Don’t try to convince me otherwise!
  2. Wipe down the cabinet cupboards with a damp cloth and then dry. Replace cabinet items in an orderly manner.
  3. Remove the towels, shower curtain, and bath mat and put them in the wash.
  4. Get the dirty work done first. Clean the toilet. Don’t forget the nooks and crannies at the base! Put the dirty rag in the wash and get a fresh rag.
  5. Clean the shower. Baking soda on a wet rag works well as an effective, non-toxic scrubbing agent. Also, I’ve started using the lavender vinegar solution as a daily fresh shower spray.
  6. Wipe down the walls.
  7. Clean the floor.
  8. Empty the trash and wash the trash can.
  9. Clean the sink and mirror last, so that you don’t get them dirty again while you’re using the sink to clean the rest of the bathroom.
  10. Hang up clean towels and shower curtain.
  11. Place something pretty and fragrant on the counter, such as a candle, a flower in a bud vase, or a bar of naturally-scented soap.
