If you ask my husband what he misses most about living in the US since our move to England he will unequivocally tell you “football.” I love football too-my alma mater Clemson was the National Champion this year and guess who missed the game because it started at midnight my time-yep, this girl.
Now with the Super Bowl, there will be no sleeping-the Americans here are coming together for a super late night football watching party and I’m busy this week prepping the house for entertaining, which is why I’m sharing some secret bathroom cleaning tricks with you today.
How to Clean a Bathroom Fast
Bathrooms are my least favorite area to clean but it’s a necessary evil. I also learned years ago to make sure I paid attention to the bathrooms before entertaining-with three young children there can be some startling messes in there at times! Luckily in just a few fast steps you can have the bathroom sparkling in under 5 minutes and move on to more pleasant tasks.
Spray the toilet, counters, sinks and shower with 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 water mixture (or your preferred cleaner) and let sit as you clean the toilet bowl.
Important Note: Do NOT use vinegar on granite counters, the acidity will wear away the seal.
Give the toilet bowl a quick scrub with the toilet brush and then use the toilet seat to hold it over the bowl to let it drip dry while you move on (no more nasty water at the bottom of the holder!)
Use a microfiber cloth or paper towels to start wiping up the surfaces you sprayed beginning with the mirror and working your way top to bottom down to the counters and sink. Next, wipe down the shower surfaces, wringing out the cloth as needed.
Wipe down the outer surfaces of the toilet with some toilet paper, when finished put the TP in the toilet bowl and flush. Toilet scrubber should be dry now and can be put back in the holder. Give the floors a quick once-over to see if they need attention, otherwise, you’re done!
