Christmas Cleaning – Bathroom

I’ve decided that I don’t cope very well when I try to clean the entire house in one day; the task seems too daunting and I get put off when the list starts to get too long! I do, however, love the feeling when it’s all done and I really want to get the house deep cleaned before Christmas (our Christmas starts at the beginning of December because I get too excited to wait any longer!) so here I am, in the middle of November, getting ready to wash walls and woodwork and clear away cobwebs!
I’m going to start my Christmas cleaning by cleaning the bathroom and tomorrow I’ll move to a different room, most likely the girls’ bedroom.
I like to start upstairs and work my way down, ending with the kitchen, which takes the longest amount of time to deep clean.

Cleaning tools - spray bottle, cloths and soap - Christmas cleaning

So here’s my list of jobs for the bathroom:

  • Wash door, door frame and skirting boards.
  • Wash corner cupboard, inside and out.
  • Empty and wash waste bin.
  • Hoover cobwebs from the ceiling.
  • Sort out all storage baskets.
  • Clean toilet.
  • Wash window and window sill
  • Clean mirror.
  • Dust all ornaments and wall decorations.
  • Clean corner shelves.
  • Clean sink.
  • Sort storage shelves under the sink.
  • Clean bath.
  • Wash floor.
Kaycee’s probably going to be a bit annoyed with me for doing it without her (yes, she likes cleaning the bathroom and doesn’t like it when someone else does it! It probably won’t last forever, especially when she hits her teenage years so I take advantage of it while I can!) but needs must as they say. I’ll tell her she can do it next time!
Right, I’m never going to get finished before dinner time if I don’t put down the laptop and get myself upstairs. See you in an hour or three 🙂

    This sounds like a normal weekly clean for me, but I must admit I do go overboard on the run up to Christmas and really get into a manic clean xx
