It's acceptable for some rooms in your house to stay a little messier than others, but the bathroom isn't one of those rooms. Much like your kitchen, it's a breeding ground for bacteria, so keeping it clean has an impact on your health as well as your aesthetic. And since your guests spend time in there, too, you want to make a good impression, right?

One of the challenges of keeping your bathroom fresh and tidy is that there's lots of dirty business being done in there, which makes maintaining it one of the more tiresome tasks in household management. Fortunately, most bathroom surfaces are pretty easy to clean, especially if you make a point to do it on a regular basis. Daily maintenance and a weekly deep cleaning will give you the freshest bathroom in the 'hood.
