Bath to Basics: How Often Should You Clean…


Lately we’re all a little more concerned about keeping things clean. Since bathrooms are hot spots for gunk and grime, it’s important to know what and when to clean. To give you a hand, here’s a quick guide on how often you should be cleaning each part of your bathroom. 


Bathtubs & Shower Walls

Scrub your tub (and shower) at least once a week. By cleaning once a week, you’re getting rid of that dirt (and soap scum) before it has the chance to stick to the tile in your shower and the sides of your tub. Tub & Tile Cleaner is great at cutting through hard water spots and grime. A quick scrub can keep your bathroom bright!


Toilet Bowl, Seat, & Lid

It won’t shock you to hear that your toilet is one of the germiest places in your home. Each time you flush, your toilet can send bits of gunk into the air in your bathroom. That’s why you should wipe down the lid and seat of your toilet once or twice a week with BETTER LIFE Tub & Tile Cleaner or All-Purpose Cleaner. Then, use BETTER LIFE Toilet Bowl Cleaner to give the bowl a good scrub and refreshing scent of spearmint.


Medicine Cabinet & Busy Drawers

While you’re working on the rest of your bathroom, take stock of what’s in your cabinets and drawers. Some products or prescriptions may be out of date. Give your cabinet a good clean-out every 1-2 months to help you stay organized. Sometimes these storage areas tend to get a little crowded but doing a little clean-out can help minimize that. This might also give you the chance to do a little reorganizing!


Bathroom Mirrors

One easy thing to spot when it needs a cleaning -- your mirror! Spots and splashes easily stick to that surface. Wiping down the mirror with a bit of BETTER LIFE Glass Cleaner will keep your reflection smiling back at you.



If your towel has been in your bathroom for more than 3-4 days, it’s time for a wash. Remember when we mentioned that flushing the toilet can spread bacteria particles throughout your bathroom? Often, those particles end up on your towels (EEK!) It’s always a good idea to switch out those towels frequently.


Your Toothbrush Holder

Flushing your toilet can also spread germs and grime to your toothbrush holder. Play it safe by storing your toothbrush in your medicine cabinet and washing out its holder once a week. 


Bathroom Floors

Splashes from the shower, sink, and toilet all end up on your bathroom floors. And, if those floors are dirty, it’s very easy to track that through the rest of your home. Mopping once a week with BETTER LIFE Floor Cleaner can keep your bathroom and the rest of your home filth-free.
