Did you know that most people would rather clean their garage than their bathrooms? While a grimy bathroom may seem daunting, you only need to master a few basic tricks to keep it sparkling clean. Follow this handy guide to making bathroom cleaning quick and easy.

Bathroom Cleaning with Windex

Stock up

Stop wasting time searching for and gathering supplies when you're ready to clean. Stash a bucket filled with your favourite bathroom cleaning products in each bathroom.

Make glass and chrome shine

Windex® Foaming Glass Cleaner gives an unbeatable streak-free shine* to mirrors, glass shower doors, the inside of windows, chrome fixtures and more. Because the formula clings to vertical surfaces, you can spray all these bathroom surfaces at once without worrying about drips.

Feed the hamper

Toss dirty clothes and towels into a hamper. Consider keeping one near each bathroom so towels will be less likely to hit the floor.

Let in some fresh air

If your bathroom door is closed all day, open the door or a window for a few minutes a day to air out the room and reduce humidity.

Clean the waste basket

Before you replace the trash bag in your bathroom wastebasket, wipe it out with Windex® Multi-Surface Antibacterial Disinfectant 2​. Kill 99.9% of bacteria** and leave behind a fresh scent.

Clear out the cabinets

Take everything out of the medicine cabinet, wipe down the shelves and put back only those items you use daily (store everything else). And, despite the name, it’s not always a good idea to store medicine in a medicine cabinet—heat and moisture can cause meds to expire prematurely.
