Excited to take a deep dive into the most daunting cleaning task of all? Great, us too! Hang in there, y’all; by the end of this guide, you’ll feel slightly less stressed since we’ll be arming you with multiple ways to scrub smarter, not harder. But, first – a list of supplies, including some from our new collection at Walmart, to help along the way: 

Your Shower:

Did you know that the best time to clean your shower is right after someone steps out of it? The steam will automatically loosen any suds and grime left behind, so you won’t have to scrub as hard. Since each surface in a shower is made of a different material, you’ll want to clean accordingly: 


Since this step may require you to kneel, you’ll want to invest in a cushy bath mat to protect your knees. We’re not twelve anymore, and we have to remember that. In the spirit of keeping things pain-free, fill a sponge brush with dish soap, click a button to dispense when needed, and rub-a-dub to your heart’s desire.  Once you feel like you covered every inch, rinse with warm water and dry off with a microfiber cloth. Oh, and for the soap and hair that get clogged up in the drains?  This helpful drain cover will do the trick to prevent that. 

Tile & Grout: 

This time, you’ll want to use a stiffer bristle brush, like this one here, with dish soap, or for more of a sparkling clean, a mixture of 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water  Scrub your preferred cleaner into your tile and grout, rinse, and wipe down with a microfiber cloth

(Side note: You should switch out your brush heads from time to time; they “expire” too. To save yourself the stress, stock up on refills here.)

Glass Doors: 

We never shy away from giving a gold star to a smart solution, so when it comes to keeping glass shower doors streak and suds-free, nothing does it like a squeegee and this blue microfiber cloth. Use both in that order after every shower, and prepare to never worry about dingy doors again. (Disclaimer: You may get addicted to using a squeegee. It is that satisfying. We love this squeegee in particular because you can hang it on the shower head for easy access.)

As for shower curtains? Read the directions, y’all.  Many are machine washable on the gentle cycle (yes, even the plastic ones) but air drying is always recommended. And if the curtain comes with a big “HAND WASH ONLY” tag? Grab your scrub brush with dish soap, rinse with warm water, and wipe down with a microfiber cloth


Your Toilet:

We all know that cleaning and unclogging toilets are both facts of life. “So, why not make the best of it?” was the inspiration behind our 3-in-1 Bathroom Trio. Who knew a plunger, toilet brush, and trash could look so chic? 

As for cleaning the toilet, which is what we’re all here for, we have a really “cool” hack to share with you. It involves putting your toilet bowl cleaner on ice. We’re serious, stick with us. If you fill your toilet bowl full of ice to the water line, pour cleaner over it, and flush once the ice melts, the result is a sparkling clean fit for a queen. What’s the science behind this? Well, according to TikTok, the ice allows the cleaner to sit there longer and slowly work its magic, rather than instantly dissolving in the water. 

With that said, it never hurts to do one quick swirl with the toilet brush as a finishing touch. 

Your Sink:

Between globs of toothpaste and  sticky hairsprays, the sink area can turn into utter chaos pretty quickly. To save yourself the visual mess and stress, don’t do deep cleans; do daily cleans instead. To make sure you actually do it, keep your supplies nearby so it’s just as easy to clean the mess as it is to ignore it. 

That’s where our Cabinet Door Organizer comes in handy. You can use it to store paper towels, all-purpose spray, microfiber cloths, and anything else you need easy access to. The pullout drawer in our 2-Tier Organizer is another great spot to make things grab-and-go. If you don’t have space for a full set up, opt for storing your supplies nearby in a caddy

Speaking of supplies, you’ll want to keep the pink microfiber cloth in our set as close as possible to quickly polish your faucets and surfaces. Use the blue cloth on your mirrors. 

Your Floor:

You won’t need to spend as much time mopping when you don’t let sticky sprays and grime accumulate. Keep a dustpan and brush set under your sink or nearby so you can do quick cleans on a regular basis. Our version includes built-in teeth at the handle so you can clean the brush as you go. 

When it’s time for the mop to make its appearance, make sure it’s a twist mop that’s easy to use. We love being able to just throw the mop head in the washer afterwards – what a game changer.
