@Home: Refresh Your Bathroom In Under 15 Minutes!


One of the most used rooms in your home is your bathroom. It’s the one room that everyone including friends, family and even unwanted guests are certain to use. So, if you start to panic whenever someone asks to use the bathroom, then maybe it’s time to refresh it. Let’s show you how you can do it in a few simple steps that will get the room looking freshly scrubbed in 15 minutes or even less.


  1. Grab a bag: To begin, hang a plastic grocery bag on the doorknob as a quick way to collect trash – the easiest way to instantly tidy any room is to gather garbage and dispose of it first. 


  1. First, flush: Next on the list is to grab some bleach or toilet bowl cleaner. Pour a cup into the toilet bowl, and brush around the sides and under the rim. Let it sit for five minutes, as you move on to the next step.


  1. Wipe off and Shine up: Fill a spray bottle with equal parts water and white vinegar. Spritz the solution onto paper towels or a microfiber cloth, and wipe away soap scum and toothpaste spatters on faucets, mirrors, countertops, and in the sink. You can also use an all-purpose cleaner. 


  1. Collect dirt: Flip over one of the same paper towel or micro-fibre cloth used to shine and run it across the back of your dusty toilet tank, then over, under, and around the seat. Flush the bleach that has been sitting in the bowl.


  1. Try this towel trick: Don’t worry if you’re drying used bath towels, just put out fresh hand towels – they’re the only ones short-term guests use anyway. Straighten the other towels and toss smelly ones in the hamper.


  1. Make an exit: Now it’s time for the floor. Shake out your rug or bath mat to fluff it up so it looks recently vacuumed. Next, with a dampened paper towel, wipe the corners of the room, where most of the hair and dust collect. Run the broom over the floor and don’t forget to take the plastic bag with you when you leave!
