First, the floor needs to be clear of any loose items so you can clean the bathroom floor easier and hassle-free. Remove any furniture, textiles and decorative accessories so you can clean better.


Before cleaning the bathroom floor, OneHowTo recommends that you don't forget to dust and thoroughly clean the toilet, sink, mirror, shelves, racks, tiles, shower, bath, etc. Once you're done, you can clean the floor. If you do the reverse, you'll only dirty the floor whilst cleaning the bathroom furniture and dirty tiles.

The last step is to clean the bathroom floor, once the rest of the room is completely clean. Sweep the floor well beforehand to remove any traces of accumulated dirt. Don't forget about the corners and be sure to wipe away the dust and dirt from everywhere. If necessary, you can use a cloth to reach more difficult areas such as behind the toilet.

Once you've done all this, clean the bathroom floor with detergent to disinfect the room. Use special bleach for this type of surface which you can find for sale in any supermarket. Use a mop to clean the floor and take particular care in areas where more dirt accumulates. As in the previous step, use an old toothbrush or cloth to thoroughly clean the areas where the mop cannot reach.


What can you do with areas where dirt takes a long time to lift and is so engrained that it is very difficult to remove? A very effective home remedy is to moisten these areas with common vinegar and leave it overnight. The next day, you can clean your floor as you would normally.
