When it comes to keeping a bathroom clean, there is a video available from CleanMySpace.com guaranteed to walk you through the short tasks that will give you the most bang for the buck when completed on a daily basis. Using these tips, viewers learn that it doesn’t have to take more than five minutes to keep any bathroom always fresh and clean for yourself and for any surprise guests who pop in when you least expect them. The core message in this cleaning video is that while tasks may vary, the key to success is consistency.
Bathrooms are the first places that people go to in the morning the last room visited at night. It’s the place where you make yourself feel fresh and clean, so it should be fresh and clean. Choosing to do the following tasks, or some version of them, every day means that your big bathroom cleanup will be easier, too.
The tips begin with the shower. Instead of getting in and out without bothering to make the space ready for the next person, this video stresses how effective a few seconds with the squeegee are after every showering session. Quick wipe downs mean that there won’t be a soap scum build up and that the space will be inviting the next time you need to use it. Keep the products stored in the bath and shower area to a strict minimum to speed the process.
The minimal approach is at the core of the video. To make sure that no one task takes longer than a minute or so, it is recommended that all the surfaces be kept clear of products with the exception of facial cleansers and tooth care products. The reasoning behind this is that putting these daily items away every day will actually add time to your routine, while eliminating the storage of seldom used products from the tops of counters means that counter wipe downs can be done in a minute or less.
In order to keep your toilet bowl fresh and clean, add some baking soda before retiring for the night. In the morning, a single flush of the toilet will keep your bathroom feeling fresh and clean for the day. Take 20 or 30 seconds each time you enter the room to tidy up. You can straighten or replace the towels, pick up clothing on the floor, or empty the trash in that amount of time. In just seconds, you’ll have a room you will want to return to the next time you need it.
Finally, if you share the bathroom with one or more people, take the time to talk to them about these micro-cleaning tasks. If you are lucky, your bathroom mates will get on board with the idea and will tidy and wipe down like true champions. However, it is often the case that you will be the only one willing to adhere to this daily bathroom cleaning routine. Instead of getting mad at them, resolve to do it for yourself so that you always have a nice and clean bathroom at your disposal.
