Easy Bathroom Cleaning Tips

Countertop and Sink

This one is so easy; we’re almost embarrassed to call it a tip. The last person in the house to use the bathroom each morning and night is on sink and counter wipe-down duty -- if they’re tall enough to reach the sink. We’re not calling for a full scrub, but if your family wants to cut down on major cleanings, it’s wise to make sure all the soap, toothpaste and mouthwash makes it down the drain after every use. A quick wipe off with a paper towel (or even a tissue) will go miles towards keeping the basin and counter clean.
