Cleaning the Bathroom
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Most people do not like to clean the bathroom. In fact, some people think cleaning this room is kind of gross. But a clean bathroom is important for many reasons. A bathroom has many germs, and cleaning it can help keep you from getting sick. If you have visitors, it is important for them to have a clean bathroom to use. Following a few simple tips will help you to have a nice clean bathroom to use.
 
2     If there are any rugs or bath mats in your bathroom, start with those. Pick them up and take them outside. Give them a good shake to get rid of any loose dirt or dust. Then take them into the house and put them in the washing machine. Use hot water to clean these. You want to kill any germs that may be on the rugs or mats. Start the washing machine. While you are cleaning the rest of the bathroom, these will be getting clean in the washing machine.
 
3     Make sure you have toilet bowl cleaner to use in the toilet. Apply this to the bowl. The toilet will be easier to clean if you give the cleaner time to soak first. While the seat is up, use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe around the edge of the bowl. Then lower the seat and wipe that off as well. Do the same for the lid. By now, the toilet will be ready to scrub. Use the toilet brush and scrub the inside of the bowl. Don't be afraid to put a little force behind the scrubbing. When you are done, flush the toilet, and put the brush away.
