It's time, let's really clean the bathroom. These five steps to really cleaning the bathroom is presented by Home Made Simple.

With the beginning of a new year comes a fresh start, making it a great time to give your bathroom a thorough top to bottom cleaning. Whether you’re moving into a new home and need to give your new bathroom a refresher, or you just need to revive a familiar space, following our step-by-step tips will help you get a deep clean and a fresh start.

Step-By-Step Cleaning
We start and end each day in the bathroom, so it’s important to maintain a space that’s clean and positive. Follow these five steps to clean your bathroom, and if you’re ringing in the year by moving into a new home, skip to step two since your new bathroom won’t require decluttering.

Step 1: Remove Clutter for Easier Cleaning

* Declutter: Remove all items from the bathroom, including hair products, makeup, soap dispensers and anything that might get in the way of cleaning a surface.
* Toss: As you’re removing items from your bathroom, don’t hesitate to toss anything out that isn’t being used. If something hasn’t been used within the past six months, it can likely be thrown away.
* Sort: When removing items from drawers or cabinets, sort each space’s contents into separate containers so they can easily be returned to their original location. Filing boxes, shoe boxes, reusable grocery bags or brown paper bags can all be used to sort.

Step 2: Clean Your Bathtub or Shower Stall

* Walls: Clean the walls of your bathtub or shower with a solution that doesn’t leave behind the overwhelming smell of bleach. Mr. Clean® Disinfecting Bath Cleaner with Febreze® Freshness is great for the task since it cleans 2x more soap scum per swipe compared to the leading bath spray cleaner while leaving behind a fresh scent, like Febreze Meadows & Rain®.
* Tub or Tile Floor: As tubs and tile flooring experience wear over time, discoloration slowly occurs with the buildup of soap scum—often so gradually that it’s hard to notice any change. Reach for Mr. Clean® Magic Eraser® Bath Scrubber to clean 3x more soap scum per swipe*.
* Shower Curtain or Glass Doors: Don’t forget to polish off your shower or bathtub by cleaning your shower curtain, liner or glass doors. Mr. Clean Disinfecting Bath Cleaners with Febreze Freshness works great for removing soap scum so you can move on to your next task in no time.

Step 3: Clean Your Toilet

* Wipe Down: Start by putting on a pair of rubber gloves, then spray the outside of your toilet, seat included, with Mr. Clean Disinfecting Bath Cleaner with Febreze Freshness. Make sure you also spray around the base and rear of the toilet before you wipe down with paper towels.
* Clean the Bowl: Use a liquid toilet bowl cleaner to line the inner rim of your toilet bowl, allowing the cleaning agents to run down the inside of the bowl. Scrub away grime with a brush, then flush.

Step 4: Clean Your Mirrors, Countertops & Sink

* Mirrors First: Use Mr. Clean® Multi-Surfaces Spray Cleaner with Febreze® Freshness to help give mirrors a streak-free shine while leaving behind the fresh scent of Febreze Lavender Vanilla & Comfort®.
* Counter & Sink: Clean your bathroom counter and sink with a solution that can effectively power through soap scum. Mr. Clean Disinfecting Bath Cleaner with Febreze Freshness makes a great companion and can be used for both counters and sinks, so you only have to use one solution.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

* Floor: To finish your cleaning job, use Mr. Clean Multi-Surfaces Liquid with Febreze Freshness to clean dirt and help eliminate odors on linoleum or tile floors. Cleaning with a scent like Febreze Meadows & Rain®, your bathroom will smell as fresh as it looks.
* Re-Stock: Once you’ve allowed all of the bathroom surfaces to dry, return your items to their original locations, or place items in their new location if you’re just moving in. If you’re in need of more space, consider using some of our bathroom storage solutions.
