Our bathroom routine is quick and easy and that makes it much nicer for all us. It also helps that we all work together to make it happen. We have two bathrooms in our home, a full bathroom upstairs and a half bath, or powder room, downstairs. Every morning when we are done in the bathroom we take the time to do a simple wipe up so we don't leave water splatters soap suds or toothpaste residue behind for the next person to have to deal with. That has been my mantra lately. Clean up after yourself so no one else has to deal with your mess.
At the end of each day, or at least every other day, we give our toilet bowl a quick swish with a toilet brush. In each bathroom I keep a container filled with a soapy solution of Fabulosa and water to keep our brush in. I think this is so much better than letting a nasty brush sit in a puddle of yuck. I do the downstairs and the girls take turns upstairs.
Once a week we clean the bathrooms. We scrub out the tub and sink with comet and then wipe down the counters with Fabulosa I keep in a spray bottle and a clean rag. Then we dump the soapy toilet brush solution into the toilet and give it a good scrub with the brush.
The brush and container get rinsed out with hot, hot water and then new soap solution goes in. We clean up the toilet with Fabulosa and a rag. About once a month we scrub it down really good with Comet and a scrub sponge.
Mirrors are washed, trash is dumped and then the floors get vacuumed and mopped. I do the downstairs bathroom and the girls do the upstairs together. They'll switch of on who does what each week. Every once in a while I do the upstairs bathroom just to make sure they haven't missed anything.
Hand towels are switched out regularly and the bath mat get washed once or twice a week as needed on laundry days. I can't emphasize enough that the key is that everyone is responsible to clean up after themselves which makes all the difference in the world. That way on cleaning day 15 minutes is more than enough time to get the job done.
