30-Day House Cleaning Challenge: Project #16

During the month of April, I’m encouraging my readers to participate in a 30-Day House Cleaning Challenge (read more here, if you missed my announcement about this challenge last week). Every week day morning at 9 a.m., I’ll post the daily project and every evening around 6 p.m. EST, I’ll post an update and link-up.

April 16, 2013 Project

Your project for today is to deep clean your bathroom(s).

You can follow this list, if you find it helpful:

  • Set the timer for 20 minutes and put toilet cleaner in each of the toilet bowls and let it soak.
  • Remove any items that don’t belong in the bathroom, put away items that need to be put away in the bathroom, empty the trash.
  • Spray and wipe down the sink and tub.
  • Finish swishing and cleaning the toilet.
  • Shake the rugs outside (or throw them in the laundry) and mop or vacuum the floors.
  • Wipe down the outside of the cupboards and clean the mirror.
  • You’re done!

As for me, I’m planning on scrubbing the bathroom floors and baseboards — something that often gets a little overlooked.

Then, come back here at 6 p.m. EST and I’ll show you pictures of my cleaning accomplishments for today and have a linky so you can link up yours, too!

    I am going to follow your list and add to it cleaning out the medicine and vanity cabinets.

  • Sarah says:

    Oh, those blasted baseboards! How can such a little ledge so close to the floor cause so much grief. Mine need some desperate attention throughout the whole house.

    Today I plan to do a quick pick up and surface clean of most of the house, although I will likely scrub down the shower when I get in it later on this morning. I have gotten behind for the past few days and I need to get myself back on track. There is a bit of clutter that has accumulated on the kitchen counter/breakfast table over the weekend and if I don’t clear those today I won’t be able to function!

    • Cathy says:

      What is with those baseboards anyway? The ones in the kids’ bathroom seem to get worse than anywhere else in the house. Argh!

  • Connie says:

    I just deep cleaned all 3 bathrooms – who knew how much joy that would bring me! I am one happy girl! Today is day 1 for me so I have lots to catch up on. I wish I had seen the post when it first started. Oh well, better late than never!

  • Lana says:

    You are so right about those bathroom baseboards. They are crud magnets at my house too! I have the 1/2 bath to clean today, the kitchen sink needs scrubbing and the counters thoroughly cleaned. I also have the downstairs to dust. Downstairs baseboards are on tomorrow’s chore list. I did the upstairs last week.

  • K says:

    What a coincidence! I started deep cleaning the master bathroom, early this morning, prior to reading today’s Challenge. (It really needed it, so…) Just have to finish up with the floors.

    I suppose I’ll spot clean the other two, as they were just cleaned. I usually try to hit the baseboards, mirrors, floors, etc. at least weekly as part of the routine cleaning.

    I plan to tackle washing and folding the laundry, as well. Already started – hope to keep it going, until it’s all done! 🙂

  • Jennifer says:

    Ugh! Cleaning the bathroom is my least favorite chore! But, I feel so much better when it’s sparkling! 🙂

  • Michelle says:

    I just deep cleaned 2 of our 3 bathrooms yesterday … and yes, it brought me joy too! 🙂

  • Had class this morning, but I’m here now. Heading to the bathrooms…

  • Sandra says:

    I’ve heard that dusting baseboards with a fabric softener sheet helps to “resist” dust. Does anyone know if that’s true?

  • I’m hoping to get back on track. I was actually in Boston yesterday. I heard about what happened after coming out of a Red Sox game. Luckily, we are all safe. Prayers and thoughts for the people affected yesterday.

    I hope you are all scrubbing away on those bathrooms.
