 The order doesn’t matter, but we want to focus on cleaning top to bottom in the bathroom.

  1. For this article’s sake, let’s start with the tub, we want to clean with a little bit of water, a scrub brush, and a chemical that will remove grime and dirt build up. I’m on a green cleaning streak and using an organic multi-surface cleaner that I purchased from Whole Foods Market (Lavender and Lemon scent.) I then wipe down any residue and get in between any areas that could contain grout). On occasion, I use the Clorox (green bottle) with bleach when the tub needs a heavy-duty scrubbing.
  2. I continue this process for the sink, and the toilet as well. I would recommend that you do not use harsh products on certain surfaces. My surfaces can handle the products I have mentioned. The floor in my bathroom is untreated stone, so I am unable to use products outside of natural or pH neutral on stone. Read labels carefully and make sure that your careful when cleaning your home.
  3. I finish off the bathroom by spraying glass cleaner on the bathroom mirror and wiping with a microfiber cloth then I proceed to polish any stainless steel.
