Hi! It’s Mindy here, from Scrubbing Bubbles. I know that busy moms have to make time for so many important things during the course of the day -- and that cleaning the bathroom doesn't always make it to the top of the priority list! I’m here to show you how you can keep the bathrooms in your home clean in minutes a day, with just a little bit of prep. These are my secrets for bathroom touch-up cleaning!

Tip: Your daily cleaning time will be even shorter if you start with a bathroom that’s been recently deep-cleaned. But if you don’t have time to do a deep-clean first, just do the daily routine as often as you can to get things back on track!

Gather your supplies. Take a tip from the pros and get a bucket or caddy and fill it with the bathroom-cleaning essentials so everything is in one place and at the ready. You’ll want a multipurpose surface cleaner, glass cleaning spray, a sponge or scrubber, some paper towels, a squeegee for glass shower doors, and toilet cleaner. TIP: Don’t want kids getting their hands on a gross and grimy toilet brush? Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush is the answer! It uses Heavy Duty pads for thorough weekly cleanings and Flushables pads for daily use and will keep your toilet sparkling, with no dirty brush to store!

Tackle the toilet. Start inside the bowl and scrub all around and under the rim, then give the seat and lid a wipe down. TIP: Use Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel to discreetly keep the bowl clean throughout the week!

Take it from the top. Clean vertical surfaces, like shower doors, walls, and mirrors, first. Just spray, wipe, and go! Any drips will be wiped away next.

Cover the bases. Wipe down the countertop, sink and faucet, and tub or shower. Don’t forget doorknobs and light switches, too.

Floor it. Sweep or use a hand vacuum to clear away dust and hair, then use a cloth dampened with a little cleaner to wipe down the floor -- it’s more efficient than mopping when you’re in a rush! Go around the base of the toilet and around the edges of the vents.

Wrap it up. Empty the trash, and if it’s time to wash the towels, replace them with fresh ones and toss the dirty ones in the laundry.

What’s your best time-saving tip for cleaning the bathroom?

A great way to clean the toilet is with a Hand Held Bidet Sprayer because it provides you with a controlled blast of water that you can use under the rim and everywhere. And of course you can use it to clean yourself too! www.bathroomsprayers.com.

My best tip: train boys to use accuracy!

I do a deep clean once a week and just wipe down daily.

I always gather my supplies. That way I have everything right there at arms reach.

I like scrubbing bubbles gel and use it all the time now. I like that it has a fresh fragrance.

The only other tip I can think of is that I keep an old toothbrush and clean around the faucet and down the drain with this.

I could have used Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush when my boys were younger & thought toilet cleaning things were toys!


One time where its easy to get the bathroom clean is while they are in the tub.  Then I can be right there supervising - and be productive at the same time.
