Secrets to Cleaning Gross Bathrooms in Your Rental

May 13, 2016


Tips for cleaning your rentals 


Clean the Mirrors

Start with any mirrors – spray and wipe clean.  I use a glass and mirror microfiber for lint and streak-free mirrors.  Keep this cloth handy and reuse in each bathroom.


Clean the Toilet

Baking Soda and Vinegar for toilet cleaning

  • Start by pouring a cup of vinegar into the toilet and swish it around using a toilet brush. Add a cup of baking soda. Swish. Add one more cup of vinegar. Let it fizz and sit for about 15 minutes.

  • Swish the mixture around making sure to remove all of the dirt and stains. Extra scrubbing with a brush or sponge may be needed for extra-tough stains. Let it sit for as long as possible before use.  

2. Another method would be using Borax and Vinegar: Very similar to method one except use 1/4 cup of Borax instead of baking soda.



Clean Tile

You’ll need: 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap

  • Clean Shower Glass

  • 1 cup of Dawn dish soap

  • 1 cup of Vinegar

  • Spray Bottle


1 cup of the Dawn to a spray bottle, heat up the 1 cup of vinegar in the microwave until it starts to boil. Add the vinegar to the Dawn and close the spray bottle.  Let it cool for a minute or two before shaking the mixture up. You can also use Palmolive dish soap


Let it set for about 2-3 hours, the longer the better

Clean Bathroom walls

Same recipe as the glass doors

  • Bucket

Steps to Removing the Stains

  1. Combine the liquid ingredients in the bucket.

  3. Use a sponge to wipe the walls with the solution. (Start at the bottom and work your way up to prevent streaks
