Cleaning Bathroom Accessories Checklist

Cleaning Bathroom Accessories Checklist


  • Wipe down the towel racks, toilet-paper holder, hooks, and other fixtures.
    Wet a cloth with water, and squirt dishwashing liquid onto it.
  • Work around wall mountings, if necessary.
    A wet toothbrush will do the job.
  • Dry with a clean cloth.
    This will prevent mineral deposits.

Medicine Cabinet

  • Empty the cabinet.
    Wipe the walls and the shelves (tops and undersides) with a cloth spritzed with all-purpose cleaner. Dry with a clean cloth.
  • Clean the door.
    If the door is wood, wipe it with a damp cloth and dishwashing liquid, applying pressure to any toothpaste splatters. If it is glass, spray glass cleaner onto a cloth and wipe it in a circular motion. For a mirrored door, see Mirror, below.


  • Apply cleaner.
    Mix one part white vinegar and one part warm water in a bucket and dip a cloth in the solution. Or spray glass cleaner onto a cloth or a crumpled piece of newspaper. Refrain from spraying cleaner directly onto the mirror, because excess liquid can seep behind the edges, causing black spots to appear on the reflective surface.
  • Wipe the mirror.
    Work in a circular motion, from the outside of the mirror in and from top to bottom.
  • Buff off spots.
    If residue from toothpaste or hair spray persists, rub it with a cloth wet with hot water.
  • Dry thoroughly.
    Use a clean cloth or a coffee filter to prevent streaks.

Plastic Shower-Curtain Liner

  • Take down the liner.
    Put it in the washing machine with old towels. The towels will agitate the liner, scrubbing off soap scum.
  • Run the washing machine on a hot-water soaking cycle.
    Pour in 3/4 cup of bleach when water fills the machine. Detergent isn’t necessary; the bleach should kill mold and mildew and remove stains.
  • Clean any remaining mildew.
    Should there still be mildew after machine washing, make a paste of baking soda and water, smear it onto a cloth, and rub it on the growth.
  • Rinse off the baking-soda solution.
    Wipe the liner with a wet cloth.

Sink Accessories

  • Wipe down any containers.
    Whether plastic, porcelain, or stainless steel, most containers can be cleaned with a cloth dampened with dishwashing liquid and water.
  • Do the detail work.
    Get into the grooves of toothbrush holders and the edges of soap dishes with a cotton swab or a pipe cleaner.
  • Dry the pieces.
    Wipe with a clean cloth to prevent mineral deposits.


  • Pour a bucket of water into the toilet.
    This will flush out the water that’s already in there.
  • Gently rub rust and hard-water stains in the bowl.
    A natural pumice stone (available at hardware stores) will work well. To avoid scratching, keep the stone moist.
  • Squirt toilet-bowl cleaner or a mildly abrasive creamy cleanser around the inner rim.
    Then swab the bowl, rim, and drain with a toilet brush.
  • Flush the toilet.
    The cleaner can corrode the bowl’s glaze if it sits too long.
  • Wipe the commode.
    Spray all-purpose cleaner onto a cloth and scrub the screw coverings at the bottom with a toothbrush.
  • Wipe the seat.
    Using the same cloth, scrub around the hinges with a toothbrush. Rinse the area with a wet cloth, and buff dry.
