No one likes cleaning the bathroom in their home. But since this is one area of the house that it’s easy to get very filthy, since one of the main reasons you come into the bathroom is to get clean, it’s vital that you keep this space clean as well. But luckily, you don’t have to devote hours to this task.

To help you learn how you can have your bathroom shining with very little effort, here are three simple ways to keep a cleaner bathroom. 

Repel Water And Soap Scum From Your Shower

One of the biggest reasons why your bathroom gets dirty and grimy is because of water and soap scum that can build up on so many of your bathroom surfaces. So to help you to not have to literally scrub every surface each day, you can do some preventative maintenance on your shower and your bathtub drain.

To keep soap scum from attaching to your walls and shower curtain, you can take some measures to repel the water as soon as it reaches the surface. Spraying a water repellent will help the water and soap scum run right off of your surface rather than clinging to them. And for your shower curtain, you can spray a cleaner onto it that contains bleach so it will clean itself as the water runs down it.  

Keep The Surfaces Clear

Having items covering every surface of your bathroom can make the whole room appear very unclean. Even just a few items on the counters or pieces of clothes that have been left on the floor can have you thinking that your bathroom needs a full scrub-down. When, in reality, you may just need to focus more on keeping your surfaces clean.

As soon as you’re ready to leave the bathroom in the morning, spend a few extra seconds putting your clothes where they belong and storing the bathroom items you’re done using. By simply putting things away, you’ll be able to see if there are areas of your bathroom that actually need to be cleaned or if it was just your messy surfaces that you needed to be addressed. 

Make Things Simpler

When you do have to do some actual cleaning of your bathroom, having to lug out a bunch of different cleaners can be overwhelming. So to make this whole process easier for you, try to simplify your cleaning process by using just one or two products. This way, you can quickly and easily clean everything in your bathroom without making it a big to-do. 

If you’re needing some help with keeping your bathroom cleaner for longer periods of time, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you see how this can be done.
