Ready to transform your bathroom from drab to fab? With a bathroom cleaning checklist in hand, any home seller can improve the look and feel of any bathroom.

When it comes to putting together a bathroom cleaning checklist, here are three key areas to focus on:

1. Sink

Let's face it – no one wants a dirty bathroom sink. Whether it's toothpaste residue or a sticky foreign substance in a bathroom sink, even minor particles can negatively affect the sink's appearance.

Use an all-purpose cleaner to help your bathroom sink pop. Apply the cleaner and scrub the sink thoroughly to remove any unwanted residue.

In addition, remember to clean your bathroom sink at least once a week. This will ensure your sink will sparkle any time homebuyers check out your residence.

2. Shower

When was the last time that you cleaned your shower? If it's been a few weeks, there may be no time like the present to clean your shower from top to bottom.

To clean your shower, you'll want to wipe down the shower door, floor and wall. An eraser sponge usually offers a great option to clean a shower, as it enables you to eliminate shower stains and mildew without the use of harsh chemicals.

Furthermore, don't forget to clean grout. Although it may require hard work and patience to clean grout, those who allocate the necessary time and resources to complete grout cleaning can keep a shower looking great.

3. Toilet

Most home sellers dread cleaning the toilet, but doing so can make a world of difference in the eyes of homebuyers. In fact, home sellers who spend even a few minutes daily cleaning the toilet can reap the benefits of their efforts immediately.

A combination of baking soda and vinegar makes it simple to remove dirt, debris and assorted residue from inside a toilet bowl. And if a toilet has an unsightly ring, it commonly pays to use a toilet pumice stone to eliminate this problem.

Also, swishing a toilet bowl with water and a toilet brush at least once a day is ideal. This practice will help you maintain a toilet's appearance both now and in the future.

If you need extra help improving your bathroom's appearance, don't hesitate to contact a home cleaning company as well. This business employs friendly, highly trained cleaning professionals who are happy to help you enhance your bathroom's look and feel.

Lastly, if you're entering the housing market and want to bolster your home both inside and out, you should hire a real estate agent. With a real estate agent at your disposal, you can receive expert home selling support.

A real estate agent will offer home improvement recommendations, help you negotiate with homebuyers and much more. Plus, if you have any home selling questions, your real estate agent can respond to your queries at any time.

Get started on the home selling journey – perform bathroom cleaning and other home improvements, and you can boost the likelihood of a fast, seamless and profitable home selling experience.

Children. You love them with all your being. But the mess they can make of the house? Not so much. Keep reading for four tips on how to keep your home clean despite your children’s best efforts. You might even be able to get them to join in on the fun! 

1. Cleanup after playtime. Build the habit of cleaning up one set of toys before moving on to the next, this not only keeps the floor from becoming littered in toys but also makes cleaning up more manageable for little ones. A large mess can easily overwhelm small children and by cleaning up along the way you make the task easier for them to participate in.

2. Have an organizational system for corralling toys that works for you and more importantly your children. Make cleanup easy by storing toys in bins and baskets that toys can easily be tossed into. Cleanup is made even easier when you give everything a designated place so there isn’t a chance for toys to end up in organizational limbo. Do a walk through of the house sweep once little ones are in bed to ensure everything has been put in its place.

3. The easiest way to keep things clean is to minimize the amount of stuff you and your children own. Of course, this is harder to implement with little ones but regular clean outs of toys helps to balance the influx of toys that come during holidays and birthdays. Include kiddos in on the process to pick out their favorites and get them excited to donate toys to other children. You can put some toys in storage and swap them out regularly throughout the year to minimize the amount kept in the home and reignite your child’s interest in them as well.

4. Create regular routines around the house to instill clean up habits in your child early on. Create designated areas around the house for play time, quiet time or even homework. This helps children adjust to focus on the task at hand as well as prevent toys from ending up all over the house. By keeping a routine time of day to do a  household chore you’ll also teach little ones the importance of having work ethic around the home. You can even involve curious kiddos in the chore by buying them a child-sized broom or vacuum to “help”. 

Keeping a tidy home with little ones in the house isn’t the easiest of tasks. But by minimizing the amount of stuff you own and instilling a regular clean up habits you can keep on top of messes. You can even create some fond memories and bonding time with your child by including them in on the fun. Happy cleaning!
