Tips to speed clean the bathroom

This post is sponsored by Chux

It can be a struggle to clean the house, lack of desire and it’s a big chore!  Doing a few easy steps each day I find the bathroom can be easy to keep clean. Read my tips below to speed clean the bathroom, they will save you time and effort:

Multitask or designate

I used to love bathtime when the kids were little.  We would sing and be silly, it was a real joyful way of spending time with the kids.  While they were happily playing I would use the opportunity to give the bathroom a tidy.

  • With young kids – tidy and clean the bathroom while the kids are splashing around in the bathtub.
  • Older kids – as a part of the kids responsibilities get them to give the bathroom a quick clean before they go to bed.

Keep the surfaces clutter free

I have tried many times putting the kids toothbrushes in a ‘decorative’ toothbrush holder.  I found that inside the holder got very grotty quickly and with little ones splashing water over the bench when using the basin I was always picking up items from the bench and wiping up water puddles around it.  I found this fantastic plastic suction basket at the local supermarket (usually displayed on the poles amongst the isles) and it has been perfect.  The toothbrushes are off the bench making it clutter free and so much easier for me to wipe the vanity top.

Clean the mirror

A very simple technique to make the bathroom look clean is by cleaning the mirror.  I don’t know how they do it, but kids tend to get toothpaste splatter all over the place.

Try Chux Duets Bathroom a 2-cloth microfibre cleaning system, giving a streak-free shine to all mirrors, tap ware, tiles and shower screens.  The Chux Duets unique wet and dry cleaning system allows you to clean surfaces with just water…. perfect forchemical free cleaning.

Store the cloths so you can easily access them, making cleaning that little bit easier. I keep the cloths on a hook in the cupboard for easy access.

chux-cloths-in-cupboard

Each cloth is designed for a specific job.  Use cloth 1 wet to remove dirt and grime followed by cloth 2 dry, to absorb moisture and to buff and shine the surface.  This system really is fuss free and leaves a beautiful streak free shine.

Wipe over the sink and tub

My kids use a lot of face washers, I don’t mind as I prefer they use a fresh one each when they have a shower each night, to scrub away all the dirt from their face (they use a shower sponge for the rest of their body).  At the end of the day I use one of the washers to wipe over the bathtub and sink, removing any dirt and toothpaste.  Alternatiely you could use the Bathroom Duets cloth 1 and then rinse.

Prevent mould

To help prevent mould open a window to let in fresh air and light, this will assist in decreasing the moisture.

Have a place for everything

Have a place/home for everything, using baskets, trays or boxes.  Giving the kids no excuses for why they can’t put items where they belong.

organised-bathroom-cupboard

Shine the taps

I think toothpaste splatter is the culprit to the bathroom looking messy, as mentioned above, splatters are left in the sink, mirror and even all over the tapware.

tap-splatter-before

Using the Bathroom Duets cloth 1 will pick up all the dirt and splatters.

tap-splatter-before-2

Then buff the tapware with cloth 2 to make them shiny again!

tap-splatter-after

Straighten up towels

Ensure that the towels are neatly placed on the towel rail.  Not only will this help them dry but it will help keep the bathroom looking tidy.

tidy-towels

Regularly wash all linens

I wash all bathroom linens (towels and washers) once a week.  The Duets microfibre cloths are also machine washable, pop these in the wash as well so you have clean and fresh cloths for the following week.

chux-washing-line

Then all you need to do is give the shower a scrub, give the vanity surface a good clean and mop the floor in your usual routine.

The Kitchen

Can’t forget the kitchen, this too can be easy to keep clean and tidy with a few simple tips:

  • Wash all dirty dishes
  • Clear the bench each evening and wipe over
  • Quickly wipe over the splashbacks, cupboard doors before any spills harden up

duetsx2

Chux Duets also has a pack for the kitchen.  The 2-cloth microfibre cleaning system will leave a lovely shine on all the high-gloss finishes like splashbacks, glass, stainless steel, bench tops and cupboards. Again making the quick clean up fuss and chemical free!

The Chux Duets are available at selected supermarkets.

I love cleaning my kitchen. I love cooking and inspiration can happen at anytime day or night (the joys of a shift worker). Kitchen is always cleaned last thing at night so it’s ready to go straight away the next time a recipe pops in my head

I prefer to clean the bathroom as its the one place that is often neglected in our house:( once its clean, its bright white and sparkly, and it makes the whole house feel clean and fresh. ..not to mention getting rid of germs and making everyone a bit easier to keep ‘sickie’ free xxx

I prefer to clean the kitchen! Once the kitchen is clean the rest of the house seems manageable. Plus it feels like we spend most of our time in the kitchen!

I have the kids help. When in the shower I spray the glass and tiles and they take it in turns in wiping. They also take it in turns to help me clean the toilet. With 2 boys I want to raise boys who know how to clean a bathroom.

I much prefer cleaning my kitchen than my bathroom. This is largely for one simple reason – there is no shower in the kitchen! I find cleaning the shower particularly burdensome. However, having just read about the Chux duet, perhaps these could make the job at least slightly more pleasent?

Cleaning the bathroom is one of my least favourite chores (esp the old grout scrub!) but after i’ve done it and im having a relaxing mummy’s bubble bath, there is nothing better! So i so prefer the bathroom as the daily/hourly clean up of the kitchen no longer brings me that kind of satisfaction!

Jenna June 18, 2015 - 7:06 AM

The bathroom. As i spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals etc its nice to retreat to a different part of the house. Also from the time we moved in together my husband has always been in charge of maintaining the kitchen. I tend to all other cleaning requirements but the kitchen is his responsibility. Its fantastic ????

I tend to regularly wipe down the kitchen after I’ve cooked or prepared a meal, so that doesn’t seem such a chore when it comes time to do a full clean. Cleaning the bathroom is much less fun and is laborious because I don’t clean as I go in the same way.

Reply
Alison June 18, 2015 - 7:16 AM

I find cleaning the bathroom more satisfying because it’s so much quicker and easier to clear the clutter and get it clean. Maybe when I stop the kitchen being everyone’s (me too!) spot to put down the day’s debris I will feel differently!

I actually like cleaning both as they are the 2 areas that have to be clean at all times to me. But to choose one would be the kitchen as all doors except the boys bedroom remain closed so my 15 month old can’t get into mischief so the kitchen remains visible at all times.
I also love to cook and keeping 3 boys fed and full I feel as though I live in the kitchen!

Kierra Weinert June 18, 2015 - 7:36 AM

Hmmmm…. I can’t really say I enjoy either partially! Perhaps the bathroom because it is smaller and rewarding to see the through that shower glass once it’s clean! Having two young boys the wet areas certainly cop a beating so small tips and new product ideas certainly help to inspire!

I prefer to clean the kitchen. It’s my place to create clean healthy food and so it’s important that I have a clean work space to do so. I avoid chemicals altogether and can become compulsive about it at times 😉 My natural cleaning alternatives work a treat for all my wet areas. I believe “Everything has a place and a place for everything,” just to convince the other inhabitants of my abode of this! Lol.

They both give the same satisfaction when cleaned completely but I have to admit the bathroom is always left last because I have to turn my back to 3 kids under 4 when I do it.

Helen June 18, 2015 - 8:01 AM

I prefer cleaning my bathroom, I will spend up to an hour making it shine. Love my bathroom to be sparkly clean so it gives me that resort look and feel, afterall it is the one place I can retreat in peace! For some unknown reason noone else wants to clean the bathroom either! Have tried all types of cleaners looking for the perfect cleaning regime and have to say these Chux Duets are what I need!

Lucy Towers June 18, 2015 - 8:03 AM

I much prefer the kitchen as I feel like cooking in a spotless kitchen helps motivate me to cook wholesome and delicious foods for my family. With 3 males in the house, the cleaning of the bathroom on the other hand seems to always be an enormous task that I dread as I never know where to start!

Reply
Barbara June 18, 2015 - 8:13 AM

I prefer to clean the kitchen as it is the first impression of the house. If it is clean, the house feels more manageable! I aim to do the dishes each night with a quick sweep so in the morning it feels like a clean slate to begin!

Courtney June 18, 2015 - 8:16 AM

I prefer to keep the kitchen clean and tidy. I feel because this area is the hub of the house, it makes the rest of the house appear tidier. Having the right tools to keep the glass, stainless steel and stone clean also helps! And… I can’t close the door on my kitchen like I can shut off the bathroom!!

i prefer cleaning the bathroom. I like the bench free of clutter. Always nice to see when it is clean and fresh and trying to keep family out so it stays that way for at least 5 minutes.

Reply
Rema Oliver June 18, 2015 - 8:21 AM

Options to clean 2 bathrooms or 1 kitchen….definitely I take the kitchen option. The kids use the main bathroom to brush their teeth (toothpaste splatter everywhere) because they sing while brushing their teeth and the electric toothbrush is not brushing but splattering and then bath time is in our bathroom. I really struggle to find good cleaning products that still remain hygienic to re-use again and again. I take to using bathroom wet wipes but then this really doesn’t help the environment.

Kim June 18, 2015 - 8:27 AM

The kitchen is the heart of our home, so when it’s clean and sparkling I feel a great deal more organised and ready to tackle my ‘to-do’ list. In saying that, I would love to try those Chux cloths on my bathroom, they look great!

I prefer to clean the kitchen. Once the dishes are done and the bench is wiped over I feel I can relax for the evening. It’s so nice to start dinner preparations, packing lunches or making breakfast with a clear bench. I use Chux wipes and a homemade spray but I’d like to try the Chux microfibre cloths, they sound great for the job.

I prefer the kitchen because it just seems easier and I have more motivation to do it, BUT the place that needs the most attention is my bathroom!

I’d love to not feel that panic anymore and maintain it better.

Okay so you have to be thinking like the proclaimers for that to work, I’m not a fan of cleaning at all but I like the results. If I had to pick it would have to be the kitchen as a clean sparkly kitchen makes me want to cook. So I’m forever cleaning my kitchen.

Lately, I find cleaning the bathroom weekly easier and therapeutic. Crazy I know. I love the feeling I get when I’ve finished cleaning and do a final wipe down with some eucalyptus oil. The bathroom positively sparkles. To stay on top of it, I keep some wipes handy in the cabinet for mid-week wipe down.

Getting up to a clean kitchen sets the tone for the day! A shiny sink is like a great big smile! A clean kitchen makes it easy for my family to make their breakfast and lunches and get set up for a great start to school and work. Who wants to fight for counter space and make food in the middle of a mess?!

I prefer to clean the bathroom. It’s so satisfying to have it clean and clutter free and the upside is, unlike the kitchen, no-one goes in 5 minutes later to make a snack and so it stays clean for the rest of the day!!

The idea of hanging the cleaning cloths under the bathroom sink is the best cleaning tip I’ve come across.

The kitchen, I always do the dishes every night after dinner, dry them and put them away. Wipe the benches as I go, and also the cupboard doors. The fridge is a breeze with labelled storage containers,meat, dairy, a double pull out plastic wire drawers, divides the cheese. The oven I wipe out everytime you use it, it keeps it sparkling clean. The only gripe is the floor, but thats when Iroomba vac (Norman) my girlfriends is called Harvey. (Harvey Norman) where he came from. Problem sorted…now for a cuppa

No comparison for me – the kitchen – as I can do it all standing up. The bathroom requires time on my hands and knees which my joints don’t enjoy! On the other hand, our two Master 9’s and one Miss 7 love to scrub the shower glass so much during shower time they often forget to clean themselves…

Love the satisfaction of having a tidy kitchen, not a huge fan of the process tho! We’re about to move into a new house and I’m worried about keeping it all looking clean and new so would love to give the Chux Duets a go. They sound great and with a new baby anything chemical free is very appealing.

Reply
Karen June 18, 2015 - 2:43 PM

I don’t really like either! But I LOVE the examples of organising the bathroom space. My 3 boys are great at cleaning themselves and their teeth etc. BUT terrible at leaving the evidence that they have been there!!! I haven’t ever used the Chux cleaning duets, but would definitely love to give them a go (and teach the boys how to use them!). Hanging them in the cupboard is fantastic! 🙂 Making things easy for the kids to be involved is always the way to go – Thanks 🙂

The bathroom door keeps the mess out of sight so when I enter I get a fright! The kitchen however, is in plain view so keeping it clean I simply must do! There is nothing worse than grotty food stains so the kitchen takes precedence while the bathroom remains. Dirty.

Hi Kat I love walking into both the kitchen and bathroom gleaming but the kitchen certainly is more of an up keep in our house just satisfying walking into s tidy kitchen ready for the day ahead ! Iam very fortunate to have a country kitchen in an off white which is really hard to keep spills and finger marks at bay so I would love some chux duets to make that job a little easier without chemicals ! Great tip hanging the cloths at easy reach inside the cupboard door I always look to your website for inspiration keep up the great work ????

The kitchen is central to everything that goes on at home so it’s important to me to keep it clean. With two small children it’s easier to clean and keep an eye on them than in the bathroom. Not to mention we are slowly renovating our house and have put in a new kitchen but still need to replace the bathroom, so at least when I clean the kitchen it looks clean, unlike the bathroom!

Jenni June 18, 2015 - 4:33 PM

I prefer cleaning the bathroom as with 3 teenagers ( 2 of them boys) the kitchen is never closed and almost impossible to keep tidy unless they are away. Although with the chux duets it would be a lot easier to wipe everything over and then throw them in the wash weekly.

I prefer to clean my kitchen. I cant stand a dirty sink. If you wash dishes when meal is finished then it looks much tidier. Also wipe benches down each time you wash dishes. Less chance of bench tops being stained.

I enjoy having a super clean and organised house and I don’t generally see cleaning as a chore. But sometimes when I am cleaning my kitchen for what seems like the 100th time in the same day (I have 3 hungry kids to feed), I remember a latin lesson we had in high-school about a poor guy called Sisyphus… For some reasons the gods decided to punish him and as a punishment he had to push a rock up a mountain but as soon as he was up the rock would roll down again and he had to start over again and again for eternity. I reckon sometime cleaning the bathroom and kitchen is a bit like the punishment of poor Sisyphus… eternal circle of dirty, clean, dirty, clean…

If I had to choose, it would be the kitchen. It’s right in the centre of our house, there’s always something happening there. Maybe that’s why it’s sometimes called the heart of the home. When it’s clean and ordered, everything else seems a bit easier to manage.

After spending 6 weeks relying on my husband to clean (I was laid up after an op) I would have loved to clean the bathroom. Walking into a clean fresh bathroom would have and be amazing . I could put up with the kitchen being a bit grotty but I love the bathroom. The duets sound amazing, and so quick and easy I’m sure I could even train my husband to use them. I find the kitchen is constantly being used in our house and harder to keep clean but the bathroom, once cleaned is great for a day or two if I’m lucky. So my vote is bathroom.

I prefer to have a clean Kitchen as it is the heart of the home and sees so much traffic during the day! If the kitchen is a mess it stresses me out when I walk through it but a tidy kitchen makes me feel on top of things which makes me more productive! Also, it is much easier to cook meals in a tidy kitchen! Having to do a load of dishes and tidying so I can see the bench first does not inspire me to cook!

Kitchen for sure! I love cleaning my kitchen. If my house is an absolute mess (3 kids under 3) and I’m losing my mind, cleaning my kitchen calms me. Weird, right? I get such a feeling of accomplishment if my kitchen is sparkling and organised. It’s like my who life is suddenly calm. Being in the middle of the house it also has a huge impact on how the living areas look. If they’re messy but the kitchen is clean, then it makes everything else look ok. If the living areas are tidy but the kitchen is a mess, the whole house may as well be because it drags everything else down.
My bathrooms don’t get super messy. I don’t hate cleaning them but I don’t get quite the same satisfaction from them.

Anything that can help make my life more pleasant would be wonderful. As I spend a LOT of my time in the kitchen, I guess this is where I spend more time cleaning up. So I guess if I had to make a choice – I’d say I prefer to clean in the kitchen. The toilets and bathrooms just have to wait until I have the time and the motivation!

I prefer to clean the kitchen! If my kitchen is a mess them I am a mess!! The kitchen is the hub for most families. When my kitchen is dirty my whole house seems dirty to me. Not to mention I have 3 bathrooms in my house so the kitchen takes less time!

I don’t enjoy cleaning either. I find it easier to keep on top of cleaning the kitchen as I do it more regularly (each evening before bed). The bathroom on the other hand builds up so it is a much bigger job. I do like the way the bathroom shines when I’ve finished cleaning it though.

Oh I’d much rather clean the bathroom! If you do it regularly, it feels so much more rewarding to see a shiny sink and clean bath! With 3 children under 6 though, and 3 bathrooms that all get used, it’s a pretty constant job! Thanks for the chance to try out this amazing looking chemical-free product!

I prefer to clean the bathroom because it’s quicker. I’m trying to encourage my husband to cook more, so when every surface of the kitchen is covered in food/food prep I can’t get cross, but instead cheer him on and then spend an hour cleaning up. Once he has the cooking down I’ll move onto the cleaning #husbandtraining

Nothing feels right until it’s done. I love to see clean benches, a scrubbed sink, swept floor and clean cooktop every time the dishes are done

The bathroom is my favourite as I automatically clean the kitchen as I clean the dishes at the end of the night. I wipe the stove and bench tops and appliances down every day so I never really appreciate it when it is done.

I would always choose the kitchen. Whenever I am overwhelmed by the chaos of our house I head to the kitchen and start there. I get the dishes done, put away any jars of herbs/oils etc, wipe down my cooker, benches and cupboard doors then clean the sink.
Our kitchen is all open plan so it instantly makes the whole house seem tidier and gives me motivation to tackle the next task.

I prefer cleaning the kitchen, so I can control the clumps of cornflakes and the clusters of crumbs, to convert it from contaminated to cleansed. Of course this is where callers and company are more likely to catch sight of chaos and clutter. I would be very chuffed to use some Chux!

Most of our house keeping is a tried joint effort but a big joint effort is in the kitchen every night from the cooking to the cleaning always walking out leaving it Spick and span. Each night one of the kiddies cooks and I help. who ever doesn’t cooks sets the table with hubby then who cooks helps hubby tidy off the table and who sets the table packs the dish washer while I clean the benches and the table leaving only a weekly clean of the splash back, cupboard doors, draws and fridge, it gets done quick and is easy so without a doubt kitchen is my favourite room to clean. We do it together we have a system and it works ????

I prefer cleaning the bathroom but confess, it’s because hubby does the shower screen. I hate the shower screen! I’ll happily clean everywhere else but he always cleans it better than me. The only downside, is that he doesn’t clean it as often as I clean the bathroom, lol! I tend to wipe the kitchen over daily and clean up spills as they happen. I also have timber doors which are way more forgiving than white, especially with young kids!

I have a love/hate relationship with cleaning my bathroom. I don’t like the idea of cleaning the bathroom and it’s mainly because I don’t have a good system/processes in place. However when I’ve done it I feel great, and I love standing back to look at it shine.

The bathroom! I love being able to douse every surface with water and bleach once every 2 months for a true clean. It’s just feels so fresh and new after a good scrub down. I do the general clean in between but look forward to the every corner is tackled clean.

My kitchen has wood floors and doesn’t have a drain point so I can’t wash down every surface.

Having just had a new kitchen installed I would have to say it is the place I prefer to clean the most to keep it shiny and beautiful. It is also the heart of our home and where I spend many hours creating and destressing by whipping up wonderful meals for my family. It’s where we hang and catchup and where we sit for coffee with visitors so keeping it clean and beautiful is important to me.

I much prefer to clean the kitchen as there’s only one of them, there are 2.5 bathrooms. However as I do loads of cooking, baking etc I am the one who makes the most mess in the kitchen, plus as it’s an open plan house, the kitchen is the first thing people see coming down through the house, so I insist on keeping it clean!
My husband wonders how many different cleaning products I can continue to buy, you’d think after 44 years of marriage he would be used to that by now.

The bathroom by far! Less clutter and MUCH MORE of a chance that it stays clean for longer than 5 minutes. Plus it’s usually the same stuff making it dirty which is far easier to clean!

Definitely the bathroom. Mainly because the whole family is in and out of the kitchen all day, so although it’s clean, it’s generally untidy. But when you clean the bathroom it stays clean for longer, so I feel like I have accomplished something!

I prefer, rather love, cleaning the bathroom especially when I come to the hand basin. My cat sits on the bath edge or on the toilet lid and watches me closely. I deliberately run the cloth over the edge and she tries to catch it. We both have fun and the bathroom is cleaned. Two jobs done at the same time. Exercise the indoor-only cat and clean the bathroom. : -)

Definitely the bathroom. We have two little ones and a third on the way (3 under 3 by Christmas!) – to stop them getting into mischief the bathroom door stays closed; so it’s always tidy and doesn’t take me very long to clean. The kitchen on the other hand seems to occupy hours of my time every day, with food preparation and tidy up the bench tops and floors are always in need of cleaning.

I love cleaning the kitchen. My family all gravitate around the kitchen bench whenever i am in there, so whilst I’m cleaning i am able to enjoy my boys’ company. my oldest will usually play whatever new song he has learnt on the guitar, my middle child likes to “help” clean up or practice telling me jokes (at 3, this is a hilarious challenge) & my youngest likes to create more mess for me to clean whilst giving me gummy grins. It may be chaotic & never-ending, but it is wonderful to me!

I prefer to clean the bathroom, because with 6 people in the house, I’ve no sooner cleaned the kitchen and somebody is preparing food or drinks and messing it up again. I can enjoy the bathroom staying clean for longer than the kitchen, due to mornings and evenings being the main time the bathroom gets used & messy.

Miss Maudy June 23, 2015 - 10:49 PM

I have to be honest, I loathe cleaning *both* of them. I live in man’s land, so cleaning the bathroom is a necessity, and needs doing each week. But because the bathroom is clutter free, it’s a ten minute job that has to be done. The kitchen is the hub of the house, though. I love to cook and the kids will do their homework at the bench while I prepare food. Cleaning the kitchen is something that gets done every night so it’s clean to start the day. Given a choice – I’d pick getting a cleaner!

Kitchen definitely! Once the kids are in bed I can wash, wipe and tidy the bench… and finally relax with my husband. I could not imagine heading to the bathroom after dinner to clean. Our 1 year old has cerebral palsy and so cleaning while he is in the bath is not possible unfortunately. The bathroom is therefore a weekend task and one that I certainly don’t look forward to!

The KITCHEN, the first thing i do when i pop downstairs in the quiet of the morning when all the others are snuggled in bed, i pop on the kettle and whilst its boiling i clear the kitchen surfaces to get ready for the day 🙂
that 5 min wipe down whilst my earl grey brews clears the kitchen and clears the clutter …for a little while before the day starts.
For a thorough clean i pop on the slow cooker and tidy and clean the kitchen – there is something satisfying about multitasking :))

In the past I would have said the kitchen. However, since I followed your tips I find the bathroom easier. I am now in the habit of giving the bathroom a quick wipe down every morning, it makes such a difference. The bathroom stays clean all week and is not so daunting come bathroom cleaning day.
The kitchen on the other hand, seems to require constant maintenance! It is only just before I head to bed, that I feel it is done for the day.

They are both important areas to keep clean, but nothing beats a clean and tidy kitchen (especially when you first get up of a morning!). After all the kitchen is the central hub of the home… where nourishing meals are prepared and conversations often over a hot cuppa or a glass of wine take place. Keeping the kitchen clean and functioning is so important for the overall health and well-being of the family.
