Spring Clean Your Bathroom + FREE Printable Checklist

Cleaning the bathroom is one of those jobs that is never-ending. It seems that 15 seconds after I clean the bathroom, it looks like I had never been there. Do you feel my pain?

We have one full bathroom for the four of us to share. There are moments when the room feels like the size of a postage stamp. Did I tell you that I have two daughters? I'm not looking forward to their teen years.

Our bathroom is very minimalistic and I don't even consider myself a minimalist, but we just don't have much space for a lot of extra stuff. Aside from the bath toys on the floor, I try to keep the bathroom sparse.

I gave the room a thorough spring cleaning recently. Here was my to-do list.
  • Mop floor.
  • Wipe down sink and tub.
  • Wash shower curtain.
  • Wash windows, inside and outside.
  • Wipe blinds.
  • Clean and disinfect trash can.
  • Wash rugs.
  • Sort, purge, and organize medicine cabinet, closet, the drawers, and cabinet under the sink.
  • Clean drains.

  1. I was looking for a good way to clean my ceiling fan. Glad I found your site. I have a spring cleaning challenge over at I am going to share your link for your ceiling fan tips. Thanks.

  2. How do you clean your drains?

    1. I pour 1 cup baking soda followed by 1 cup hot vinegar down the drain. Allow to sit for 30 minutes, follow with hot water to flush everything down. I like to do this periodically to help prevent all the hair/soap/toothpaste crud that builds up.

  3. Yes bathroom cleaning is a very daunting task and no one like to do it, but it is a very necessary activity in the house cleaning. We should use natural and Eco friendly products for cleaning and if we don't like bathroom cleaning, then we can take from professional cleaners.
