Step 1: Take a look around. See anything that has made its way into the bathroom that doesn't belong? (examples include but are not limited to: shoes, blocks, Ninja Turtles, crayons). Recruit your little ones to help you and put that stuff away. If you're short on time and minions, toss it in a basket and put it in the room they belong in. Maybe they will magically get put away?
Step 2: Toilet time. Throw the bowl cleaner in, give it a good scrub down and then clean the outside with either a Lysol wipe or spray. I like to use something that smells fresh so I really feel like its doing the job. Yes, I know, it's probably working the same as non yummy smelling ones, but its a treat for my nose. This is also when I wipe down any surfaces, and the sink.
Step 3: Remove all garbage and line the trash can with two or three plastic bags to make it easy to dispose of the full bag and the next is already in place.
Step 4: Forget the broom and grab the vacuum. I use the hose and brush on all my non-carpeted floors and it makes it quicker and does a much more thorough job. Use the brush to get the corners and the parts of the toilet where dog hair and dirt tends to congregate too.
Step 5: If time allows, I use a sponge to mop so I can really scrub, but if you're short on time, do a quick mop, let it dry a minute or two and do it once more. I use Gain Mr. Clean All Purpose in a big thing of super hot water. It smells amazing and shines when I'm done.
Oh, guess what! You're done!
You may notice I skipped the hamper and shower/tub. I empty the hamper as it gets full and toss a load of laundry in, and the showers I don't do every time I bathroom clean. Typically, unless they are super dirty, I do those every 3-4 bathroom cleans. Or I ask (demand) my husband do them, because I hate that job.
