Works For Me: Cleaning Bathrooms

Wfmwsmall I can’t imagine that anyone has time to be scrolling through Works-For-Me Wednesday entries this week, what with all the browsing through the giveaway goodies.  Mr. Linky is going to kick me out!  But neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor freebies shall stop the WFMW train from a-goin’, so here it is…

I’ve discovered an easy shortcut for bathroom cleaning.  I’ve never had great luck with those bathroom wipes you can buy, pre-wet, because no matter how careful I am, they always seem to dry out on me.  Instead, I keep a paper towel roll and a spray bottle of cleaner under the sink in each bathroom.  This way, when those rare moments of cleaning inspiration hit me, I have everything I need right there–and I can throw the nasty used towels away!

So, do you have a tip you’d like to share?  Leave your clever WFMW tips below, and be sure to check in with the guidelines here first.  Remember to link directly to your WFMW post, not to the front page of your blog.

Remember, next week is the first Wednesday of the month, so that means it’s time for another themed edition of WFMW.  The first edition of Backwards Day was so much fun, we’ll do it again next week.  Instead of sharing a tip that has worked for you, you’ll throw out an issue or question that has stumped you.  Invite your readers to give you their feedback!

    I knew it was too good to be true…it said I was #1 after I posted, but of course I’m not LOL. Silly dial-up internet.
    Great tip…I had to start doing that too, keeping all my bathroom cleaning supplies in each bathroom, because the “inspiration” rarely hits me, and when it does, I need to be able to act quickly πŸ˜‰

  2. Mandy Houk says:

    That’s a great idea! I have been using the Mr. Clean wipes lately, and so far they’re wonderful. They’re super strong, so I can even scrub with them, and they haven’t dried out yet.
    But paper towels and spray cleaner are, I’m sure, much less expensive!

  3. infinitygoods says:

    Keeping supplies in each bath, the kitchen and the laundry works great for me too. I use disinfectant wipes AND baby wipes AND paper towels, depending on the job at hand so that I won’t have to run back and forth.

  4. Thia says:

    Bah….forgot to put title in the first time I did it…
    Keeping the cleanning supplies close by is definitely a good thing.

  5. Happy Momma says:

    I am not a fan of shower cleaning. One day while I was at Target I saw “Method Daily Shower Cleaner” I am now officially in love and recommend it to everyone. I don’t use a squeegie or anything and my shower is fabulous. Depending on how “dirty” your shower is will depend on how long it takes to “clean it”. It is bio degradable and safer than say tilex or something similar. Hubs even uses the spray if he is the last one in the shower now. As for the kids bathroom, well that is up to me to do it too, maybe when they are older I can reward them.

  6. momhuebert says:

    That’s exactly what I do! Except sometimes I just use the moisture that’s already all over everything right after someone’s shower. Just basically dry everything off, and it’s clean.

    Oops, sorry! I accidentally linked the first time to my home page instead of my WMFW blog post. I think I got it right this time! Thanks for hosting!
