How to Properly Clean Your Apartment Bathroom

Have you just moved out on your own and into a brand new apartment?  You may realize that this comes with many responsibilities that you've never had to worry about before.  From doing your own laundry, to cooking your own meals, to cleaning your own bathrooms, you may need to learn how to do it all.  At our apartments in Cayce, SC, we have spacious apartment layouts and updated features that make our apartments easy to clean.  However, our residents still want to keep them clean on their own.  There are a few things you should know about how to properly clean your apartment bathroom.

Clean Your Toilet

To properly clean your toilet, you'll want to use a cleaner on both the inside and outside.  Disinfect the handle and seat thoroughly, as these are where you sit and touch.  Keeping toilets clean is important for removing germs and bacteria from these enclosed spaces.

Wipe Down the Sink

Whenever you are cleaning the sinks and the counter surface around the sink, be sure to use a disinfectant spray that works to remove bacteria and germs.  This is where you frequently touch and maybe even share the space.  

Wipe Down Mirrors

When you wash your face and brush your teeth, you may spray some water up onto the mirror and create water spots.  This will require you to properly wipe it down by using glass cleaner, which will create a crystal clear and smooth surface.  Be sure to clean the mirrors to give it that finished look.

Disinfect Handles

Door handles and toilet handles are frequently touched and may require daily cleaning depending on how often you are sick and if you have house guests or roommates.  Be sure to disinfect these high-touch surfaces regularly to avoid passing germs and to keep the area safe.

Scrub the Tub and Shower

One of the most difficult parts of cleaning your bathroom will be thoroughly cleaning your tub and shower area.  These areas are prone to mold and mildew growth if they are not frequently cleaned because they are almost always moist areas.  Clean these areas with bathroom cleaners, scrub brushes, and rubber gloves for the best results.

Mop the Floors

Whenever some people use the bathroom, they miss the toilet.  It's just the simple truth.  A thorough bathroom cleaning should always include the floor.  Be sure to clean the floor by mopping and disinfecting the area with a cleaner as well.  This will keep the floor clean and tidy, which can prevent odors and also tripping hazards.


By following these steps, you will be sure to properly cleaning your apartment bathroom on regular basis.  This will help to keep your bathroom odor-free and healthy from mold, mildew, and soap buildup.  Our apartments in Cayce, SC are great places for those looking to live on their own and learn about how to take care of their own place.  Contact us today if you are also looking for your own apartment.
