  • Your bathroom. It's one of the first places you see in the morning and one of

  • the last places you see before going to bed. You use it each day for little

  • rituals and routines before you set out for your next whatever it is that you're

  • doing, and the important thing with your bathroom is you want it to feel fresh and

  • clean so that you can feel fresh and clean. The challenge is how do you keep it

  • clean on a daily basis given all the things that go on in there? And I know

  • many of you have been asking me for a bathroom cleaning routine. So what I'm

  • going to do is walk you through some very easy things you can do on a daily basis

  • which will not only help it feel like a fresh, clean, and serene space but will

  • also help make your weekly or bi-weekly or whatever frequency you choose to clean

  • your bathroom routine a lot easier. Okay, let's get to it.

  • Each day after you take a shower, remember to squeegee your tiles, your tub, and your

  • glass shower doors. This helps prevent soap scum, mildew, and hard water stains

  • from building up on those surfaces. You can also use a daily shower spray but I

  • think the results of a squeegee are a lot better. It is so easy to do and anybody in

  • the family can do it. You can use a disposable wipe or you can keep a spray

  • bottle and microfiber cloth under your bathroom sink and each night before you go

  • to bed you can just clean off any of those little toothpaste splatters on the mirror

  • and you can also give your countertop and your sink a quick wipe down. You can shine

  • those faucets. You can get rid of any of that hair or debris that's living on your

  • counter and then you can toss that disposable wipe or you can rinse off your

  • cloth and hang it to dry. If you want the freshest toilet on the block, there's

  • something really simple you can do. Just take a couple tablespoons of baking

  • soda. You can even keep a little box under your bathroom sink, sprinkle it in the

  • toilet before you go to bed, let it just do its thing. And when you wake up in the

  • morning give your toilet a quick flush or if you notice any rings building up, get

  • your toilet bowl brush and give it like a 10 second scrub, flush it, and move on

  • with your day.

  • Bathroom counter real estate is a real challenge. So my rule is to just keep face

  • care and oral care products on there. Everything else can either go under the

  • bathroom sink or in a small basket off to the side or on a shelf. You want to keep

  • that counter looking nice and clean. The items that are on the counter, you can

  • line those up quickly parallel and perpendicular or group them together or

  • like our friend Nate Berkus would tell us to put it on a nice little tray and create

  • a little bathroom vignette. Whatever you have to do to make that counter look good,

  • you want to do it. Do a super speedy, quick, cursory tidy of the bathroom, pick

  • up any clothes or anything that's lying around on the floor, throw anything in the

  • laundry that needs to go on the laundry. Basically, your bathroom is not a big

  • place, it will not take you longer than one minute, but that quick little tidy is

  • going to make all the difference. Finish the task off by closing your shower

  • curtain, straightening up your towels, making sure everything looks neat and

  • tidy, fixing up those rugs, and basically just making your bathroom look appropriate

  • for a guest to pop their head in. I'm going to try and be poetic here for a

  • second. Bathrooms are like snowflakes. They're all a little bit different but

  • they all kind of do the same thing. So the routine that I gave you, if it works for

  • you, great. If it doesn't and you need something that I didn't mention or if

  • something that I mentioned doesn't quite make sense for your bathroom, just adjust

  • it accordingly. The important part here is finding something that works for you and

  • something that you can stick to each day because consistency is what's going to get

  • you that clean space. Also remember, you don't have to be perfect at it, you just

  • got to do it. And, by the way, you don't have to spend minutes upon minutes upon

  • minutes, you have better things to do. This will only take you like max five

  • minutes, I promise. And as you become more efficient at it you'll see you can get it

  • done a lot quicker. But trust me, when you walk into that clean bathroom you're going

  • to crave it being clean all the time and this routine is going to sit a lot easier

  • with you.

  • I already hear the comments in your head for me. "Melissa, I live with somebody

  • else. They never keep the bathroom clean. I'm going to have to be the one to do it."

  • Okay, guys, here's what we're going to do. In that situation you have two options.

  • Your first option is you can talk to the person you share the bathroom with. You

  • could see if they're into this routine idea and then you guys can kind of divide

  • up the labor. So if you like doing toilets and counters, you do that. And if the

  • other person likes doing straightening up and tidying up, have them do that. Find

  • what works for the both of you or all of you, however many of you share the

  • bathroom. Now, if nobody else is going to buy into this routine aside from you,

  • guess what? You're doing it, and the reason you're doing it is because you love

  • a clean bathroom and you feel good in a clean bathroom. Forget about the other

  • people here. This is not about them, this is about you feeling great in your space.

  • Trust me, I know how that feels guys, but it really does makes sense to do something

  • good, important, and special for yourselves and this routine isn't going to

  • be too much sweat off your back.

  • I've got all of this routine business laid out for you on our blog,

  • cleanmyspace.com, and I've also got some extra pointers, tips, and tricks on there

  • to help you on your journey to a cleaner bathroom. So be sure to check it out, it's

  • at cleanmyspace.com. Maintaining a clean bathroom means you got to start with one,

  • so stick around to the end of this video where I'll show you a couple of great

  • thorough bathroom cleaning videos. What we want to find out from you guys in our

  • comment question this week is what other cleaning routines would you like to see.

  • If this video was really helpful for you, please let me know in the comments down

  • below what else we can do to ease your cleaning woes. I'd love to see what your
