Kids and germs go together don’t they? Spring is upon us and as the weather begins to warm up it seems like germs that cause illness increase too. I’d personally like to stop germs and illness in their tracks because who has time to be sick? Plus, my doctor recently told me that I have a compromised immune system and need to stay away from sick people. And I have six kids. So you can see that does not add up.
One of the areas in our home that I am convinced contributes most to the spread of germs is the bathroom. I mean it stands to reason right? Eight people in and out all day long. Half the people still don’t wash their hands in spite of what feels like constant nagging on my part. (Eww.) The other half the people in this house wash their hands but then grab the doorknob that one of the other people just touched on their way out of the room. And then wander into the kitchen. And so it goes. I’ve decided it is time for Spring cleaning the bathroom. All three of the bathrooms in this house need a spring cleaning stat!
I was out looking at used bikes for the boys the other day and came across a Dollar General on the way home. Decided it was the perfect time to make a quick trip in and out and buy all the Clorox before someone gets another cold!
Tip: Spray each bowl with toilet bowl cleaner before you start so that it can soak on target.
Once home, I sprayed all three toilet bowls to soak and then set out to clean the sinks. I found that the faucet and handles clean up nicely with a disinfecting wipe. The sink itself got more spray and one particularly gross sink got filled with water with a tiny bit of bleach added to soak for good measure.
With the sinks finished or soaking, I decided toilets were next. Cleaning the outside of the toilet required Clorox Clean-Up Spray, paper towels, and getting down on the floor on my hands and knees to clean around the bolt. Tip: I recommend spraying the cleaner directly onto the paper towel to avoid overspray of bleach onto clothing. Once down there, I got a good look at the floor behind the toilet and decided that Spring cleaning means deep cleaning so I better be thorough. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes were perfect for the job.
To finish up, I went around each touchable surface with Clorox disinfecting wipes. Door knobs (both sides), light switches, the wall around the light switches (why does that get so dirty???), the towel racks, the toilet paper holder. Anything I know my kids touch throughout the day got a wipe down! Also, I realized that the disinfecting wipes were perfect to clean out my trashcans! With the bathrooms clean, I’ll rely on quick wipe downs with Clorox Disposable Wipes as needed to keep the door handles and touchable places clean.
