This article is about how to clean the walls, ceiling, and mirrors in your bathroom using all purpose household cleaning products. Also at the end of the article you will find out a few tips and tricks about how to keep your bathroom surfaces clean. So, if you are ready, let’s get started!
You have to be sure that there is enough fresh air in the bathroom before you start the cleaning process, it is good to use a fan or just to open a window. Then put your plastic gloves. And now you are ready to start with the cleaning.
High and low dusting is the first thing you are going to do. The important thing to know about dusting is that dust falls from the top to the bottom of the bathroom surfaces, so you want to start at the top and work your way down. That’s why we start with the high dusting. Prepare your high and low dusting tool now, by placing a dampened microfiber cloth over the end of a mop pole and securing it with the hair elastic. Start at your 12 o’clock point and raise the tool up to the seam where the ceiling meets the wall. Walk it from corner to corner around the room dragging it along the corners and edges along the seam.
Now that your high and low dusting is done, take 2 microfiber cloths and your bottle of all-purpose cleaner and glass cleaner. If you have mould on the ceiling start with spraying a water bleach/disinfectant solution on it and let it rest for a couple of minutes, do the same with the other bathroom surfaces (if they are tiles) or use another cleaning product. With a sponge or a clean rag, scrub the tile surfaces you’ve sprayed. Rinse it carefully to avoid any stripes and dry it with a clean rag. If you do not have mould on the surfaces in your bathroom just spray one microfiber cloth with all purpose cleaner, so that it’s damp and head to your 12 o’clock area to start. Start scanning (top to bottom) and seek out any fingerprints or marks on the wall. You are literally going to scan, moving your head in an ‘yes’ position (up and down) looking for things that need cleaning. Clean the area by spraying it and wiping clean in an ‘S’ pattern. When you reach the mirror, clean that as well by using a microfiber cloth and bottle of glass cleaner. To add a shine to your mirror add a bit vinegar to the water. if just cleaning with water wipe with a towel after.
