Welcome to week one of the 8 Week Cleaning Challenge! If you saw my “Real Life Home Tour” last week, you know I am in need of a little cleaning/organization around my house; and maybe you are too. For some reason the holiday season brings out the worst in my house. I just don’t have time to clean and organize when I’m Christmas shopping and wrapping gifts and preparing food and running from one celebration to the next. If your house looks anything like mine, I’ve got a plan for us.
When you look at your whole house and see all the messes and disarray, it can be very overwhelming, right? I have come to find that tackling one space at a time, and doing a thorough job with it, can be a more manageable solution. Each week of this challenge focuses on one “space type”. This first week we are going to tackle bathrooms… all the bathrooms, so if you have one bathroom, you’ve got a whole week to tackle that one space. We have 4 in our house, so I will choose 4 days and tackle one bathroom each of those days. If you are super motivated, feel free to tackle all your bathrooms in one day.
There is a lot to do in a bathroom. Lots to clean. Lots you can organize. Ready?
- Wash the Floors
- Clean the Sinks and Counters
- Wash the Mirror
- Clean the Toilet
- Clean the Tub/Shower
- Organize Under the Sink
- Organize the Drawers
- Organize Medications/First Aid Items (Toss medications & sunscreens that have expired)
- Empty the Trash

- Vacuum/Dust the Baseboards
- Clean Windows and Window Sills

- Dust Any Shelving
- Disinfect Door Knobs, Toilet Handles, & Light Switches
I love lists. I love crossing things off lists. If you’re like me and want a list of bathroom chores for the week, here you go: 8 Week Cleaning Challenge: Bathrooms. Print off as many as you need. You can tape these to the bathroom door(s) or create a 3 ring binder.
For Cleaning Tip Tuesday, I’ve rounded up all my favorite Bathroom Cleaning Tips for you.
