Bathrooms are required to be cleaned on a regular basis. And, as compared to other rooms in your home, you cannot just tidy them up and consider it clean.

Here are some tips and tricks for keeping it clean all the time, and spending less time doing so.
Tips and Tricks On How to Clean Your Bathroom Fast and Efficiently

- Disposable duster
- Paper towels
- Soft rags and old towels
- Disposable gloves

You can also use a disinfectant wipe in cleaning the outside of the toilet and to run over other outer surfaces.in the bathroom. This is very effective in wiping away the most obvious dirt and germs.
- Scrub out the internal part of the toilet with a toilet brush and cleaner.
Using a special cleaner, usually strong disinfectants, thick liquid, scrub all areas of the toilet, especially under the rim. Flush and repeat at least twice.

- Return to the proper places all the items that belong in the bathroom.
