  • (music)

  • Oh my goodness, I've got to do that bathroom cleaning video.

  • (music)

  • What's behind this door? It's the stuff that nightmares are made from,

  • and no, I'm not talking about your closet where paranormal activity happens,

  • and yes, it does happen by the way.

  • I'm talking about your bathroom which is a whole other level of terror.

  • It's no secret, people don't like cleaning the bathroom,

  • and I'm no different from you guys.

  • Vacuuming has to be my least favorite cleaning task,

  • but bathroom practically fights vacuuming for first place.

  • Now even though I hate cleaning the bathroom,

  • I've got to admit there's nothing quite like stepping into a clean bathroom.

  • It's practically euphoria.

  • You go in there, you brush your teeth, use the bathroom, toilet, wash your hands, shower.

  • You want to get clean in a clean place.

  • So for all of you, who are like me, who want a clean bathroom but don't like doing it,

  • I've devised the Melissa Maker's Kick Ass Bathroom Cleaning Program.

  • It's really easy. Well, it's straightforward.

  • It might take you a bit of time, but I promise you, once you do it,

  • your bathroom will be amazingly clean and so much easier to maintain, or else a full, money-back guarantee.

  • Quick note to all of you who say,

  • "But Melissa, your place is so much cleaner than mine,"

  • (typing sounds) because you always say that.

  • Well, let me tell you this is going to work regardless of how clean or dirty your bathroom is.

  • So we're using my bathroom, but if your bathroom's a lot dirtier,

  • it's the same process and it will get you the same results.

  • It'll just take you a little bit longer the first time.

  • So stick with it.

  • And with all of our videos, we give you a list of recommended cleaning tools and products

  • to help you effectively clean your space.

  • This one is no different. And you can find that list on our blog, which is CleanMySpace.com,

  • and I'll put that link for you in the description box below.

  • So without further ado, we will read it off my phone.

  • Here's the list.

  • You'll need about five microfiber cloths.

  • You'll need some paper towels to clean your toilet.

  • You'll need a squeegee, and we'll talk about that in the shower.

  • All-purpose cleaner and disinfectant,

  • so you can probably get an all-purpose cleaner with disinfectant, that would save you an extra product.

  • A glass cleaner, or if you're like me,

  • I just use a bit of water on my microfiber cloth when I'm cleaning my mirrors.

  • But if you have shower glass doors, you might want to use something else.

  • Tub and tile/toilet cleaner, so a bathroom cleaner of your choice.

  • Baking soda and vinegar if you like to swing the green way.

  • Double-sided sponge, and I love the non-scratching type,

  • which is usually blue on blue, and you'll see mine in a sec.

  • Toilet bowl brush, which is clearly only used in one place, the kitchen.

  • Garbage bags. A mop pole or a broomstick with a hair elastic.

  • I'll give you reasoning for that shortly.

  • And you can also get a cleaning toothbrush, not to be confused with your regular toothbrush,

  • because I sure wouldn't want to brush my teeth with that.

  • So without further ado, let's break into the commode and start our cleaning.

  • (music)

  • We use the same three-wave approach that we used in the bedroom cleaning video.

  • Wave number one, this involves tidying, organizing and pre-treating the toilet and shower.

  • Wave one is pretty straightforward.

  • I'm putting dirty laundry and towels in a laundry pile.

  • Scattered items are going away.

  • I'm throwing garbage out and organizing as I go along.

  • If you find a misplaced item that doesn't belong in the bathroom, just leave it by your door.

  • You can deal with it later.

  • The other important part of this wave is pre-treating surfaces like the toilet and shower tiles

  • since these need dwell time to break down the buildup.

  • So I'm pre-treating with my bathroom cleaner.

  • (music)

  • Next, on to wave two, which starts by doing high dusting using a mop pole and microfiber cloth.

  • You can tackle your vent as well.

  • Back to your starting point, you'll notice that I am now doing my dusting, cleaning, and polishing.

  • That's really the core of wave two.

  • Starting high to low, I search for dusty and dirty areas and clean them as required.

  • (music)

  • Now on to my mirror,

  • where I'm only spot cleaning the dirty areas using a bit of water on my microfiber cloth.

  • One of the bigger jobs in my bathroom involves cleaning the counter.

  • I do the half to the left of the sink first,

  • and then I move on to the right afterwards.

  • I'll remove all items, spray and soak the counter, wipe using an S pattern,

  • and then wipe and replace each item and line it up neatly.

  • Doesn't that look great?

  • (music)

  • Ladies, learn from my mistake and put your hair up before you start doing this.

  • (music)

  • Then I'll wipe the cupboard doors and handles.

  • (music)

  • And now, on to my medicine cabinet.

  • Mine may not look like yours, but it does have a ton of bathroom stuff.

  • You'll notice I lay a paper towel down on my clean counter.

  • That way I'm not placing dirty items on top of an already clean surface.

  • Shelf by shelf I remove everything.

  • I wipe the shelves and then carefully wipe and replace each item.

  • Sadly, or happily, that's about half my nail polish collection.

  • (music)

  • Now on to the toilet. Note how I'm using a paper towel to wipe it down,

  • because I can throw the paper towel away at the end.

  • Just don't flush it down the toilet.

  • I have a more detailed video on cleaning the toilet, and you'll see the link at the end of this video.

  • (music)

  • Now that the toilet is done, off come the gloves.

  • Next, let's clean the shower and tub. I'll respray the tiles and scrub using an S pattern.

  • For tile and grout that needs some cleaning,

  • I'll use a bit of baking soda and a cleaning toothbrush to scrub the grout lines.

  • Good thing I didn't wear low-rise jeans today.

  • (music)

  • Then we rinse the tile walls.

  • I'll use my shower head and then dry the tiles with the squeegee.

  • To learn how to clean your shower, watch our in-depth shower cleaning video.

  • (music)

  • Following this, I'll spray the tub down and use some baking soda to add extra abrasion.

  • I'll scrub it from back to front using my double-sided, non-scratching sponge,

  • and then I'll rinse it and dry it.

  • Remember to polish the chrome with a dry cloth as well.

  • (music)

  • Now I'll wipe and replace all of my shower items.

  • I'll finish up wave two by cleaning my bathroom sink.

  • I leave it until the end just in case I need to use any other water during the cleaning.

  • That way I don't need to re-clean it.

  • (music)

  • Congrats, you made it to wave three.

  • We'll start this wave at our starting point and work our way around the room,

  • wiping all points of contact using a disinfectant.

  • We'll also use this opportunity to change the garbage.

  • And our last job is cleaning the floor.

  • I find it best to clean by hand.

  • Using a mop is kind of a waste of time for such a small space.

  • When you use a cloth and some water with a little bit of vinegar,

  • you'll clean the floors beautifully,

  • and you can collect all hair and debris.

  • (music)

  • So whether you're cleaning up your bathroom to impress your new boyfriend or girlfriend,

  • doing your mom a favor, or cleaning up after a wild family of five,

  • now you know how to clean the bathroom.
