I hate cleaning. My parents always called it “doing chores” when I was little and it was something to be dreaded. I try to stay away from the word “chore.” That makes it sound like something you HAVE to do, like a punishment. But cleaning is FUN, right?!?! Haha, well…. maybe not…. but it doesn’t have to be a CHORE. Put on the music, dance around, make it a contest of who gets it cleaner, and reward yourself after a job well done!
I think most people probably like cleaning the bathroom the least because—gross—but I don’t mind that “chore” as much because it’s such a small space! And as long as you keep it up and clean it often enough, it doesn’t get too disgusting.
Checking out these bathroom habit facts from the Scrubbing Bubbles® Dirty Work Index might make you realize how dirty your bathroom may actually be.
Okay, flushing the toilet with the seat up?! 60% of people do this?!?!!? SO GROSS. Even grosser—if your toothbrush is anywhere near that flushing toilet. There are some very simple things we can all do to keep the bathroom cleaner day-to-day, like closing the toilet seat, and using some great cleaner and disinfectant to cut through the grim for deep cleanings, like Scrubbing Bubbles® Multi Surface Bathroom Cleaner.
Even if you clean your bathroom frequently, are you thorough? Let’s think about it…. do you clean your shower curtain? If you don’t, you’re not alone—42% of people neglect it during bathroom cleaning! I know I forget about it, but we do have glass doors on the master bath shower and I do clean those!
What about between cleanings? 47% of people leave hair all over the bathroom—guilty! My husband has no hair on his head, haha, and most of mine ends up in my brush, but definitely on the floor or counter, too. To solve this problem, we keep a little handheld vacuum upstairs! We also have two little ones that are always making messes in the bathroom and our bathtub!
Do you use your shower or bathtub to clean things besides yourself? I know plenty of moms that soak cloth diapers in the bathtub. What about bathing your pets? But then you might turn around and bathe yourself or your delicate clothing.
If this is giving you the itch to go scrub your bathroom, make sure you’re cleaning the right areas… 49% of people think the toilet is the dirtiest spot and might focus their cleaning there! But evidence says the contrary… it might be one of the cleanest areas of the bathroom! And what are you using to clean? Bathroom cleaner, all-purpose cleaner, wipes? Clean AND disinfect!

My husband used to keep his bar of soap on the shower ledge close to the shower head. The water would make the soap suds run down the side of the shower until it created a really stuck-on path of soap scum all the way down the side of the shower. We scrubbed and scrubbed and sprayed and couldn’t get it off… until we tried Scrubbing Bubbles® Mega Shower Foamer. It worked SO well and we were so relieved that my husband went out and bought like 5 cans of it so we would never be out of stock, haha.
