Home Cleaning: 3 Often Overlooked Details for a Clean Bathroom

Updated: July 12, 2023

A fresh and clean bathroom is often one of the most underrated luxuries in American life. Considering that 66% of people flush with their feet when using a public toilet, it’s clear that a clean bathroom is important. But what about your home bathroom? Here’s a list of 3 often overlooked details in a home bathroom to help give you peace of mind and guidance when cleaning your own home bathroom.

Clean Bathroom Detail 1: Toothbrush holder

In a 2011 study by NSF International, it was found that 64% of toothbrush holders breed bacteria and yeast, which can cause an allergic response in some people. So, it’s important to clean your toothbrush holder at least once a week.

Toothbrush Holder Cleaning Tip:

Check the bottom of your toothbrush holder to see if it’s dishwasher safe. If so, drop it in the dishwasher and run it through a dish cleaning cycle as you would normally to dishes. If it’s not dishwasher safe, a simple clean with warm soap and water will do.

Clean Bathroom Detail 2: Floor mats and Hand Towels

Floor mats, bath mats and hand towels are something we use every day, but often don’t think twice about it. Given their constant contact with warm water and moist air, it’s a good idea to clean these items once a week. Luckily, cleaning is easy – simply throw them in the washer and dryer, and you’re good to go.

Clean Bathroom Detail 3: Bathroom Sink (and drain!)

Whether you’re washing your face, brushing your teeth, or washing your hands, the bathroom sink is another appliance used multiple times, on a daily basis. Over time, this continued use can build up bacteria, especially around the drain. To ensure a clean bathroom sink, we recommend pouring vinegar or baking soda down the drain every couple of weeks, then rinsing with hot water. To clean the sink basin, disinfectant wipes or sprays are a great way to go. Just make sure to follow the instructions on the disinfectant product label, to ensure proper disinfection.
