Easy Cleaning: Clean Bathrooms in Less Than 15 Minutes

If there’s one thing you know about me as a human being, it’s that I really don’t like cleaning. I don’t find it therapeutic, relaxing, or calming. And it’s not that I don’t like having a clean house, because I do. And it’s not because my parents didn’t make me do chores when I was growing up, because I did. BUT having a perfectly clean house at all times is just not within my top priorities… which means I’ll make sure there aren’t dirty socks on the living room before when we’re expecting company, but I am not going to be worried that they might see Blaire’s toys sitting on the coffee table. #notsorry

Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber

Besides a quick tidy-up in the kitchen and living room when we’re having people over, the top priority is a clean bathroom. This is where my super quick, ninja-like bathroom cleaning process comes in handy.

  1. Spray down your toilet and sink with your favorite cleaner. Let sit. If your guests are staying overnight, spray the shower, too.
  2. Clean your toilet bowl. I LOVE the Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber! The disposable pads keep the mess (and the germs!) out of your bathroom and the unique scrubber scrubs the messes you’ve been leaving behind.
  3. Spray and wipe down mirror.
  4. Wipe down your sink and toilet (and shower, if necessary).
  5. Empty trash.
  6. Hang a clean hand towel.
  7. Check to be sure toilet paper is stocked. 
  8. Do a happy dance.
  9. Eat snacks on your couch until your guests arrive. ;)

And, voila, you have a clean bathroom for your guests.

Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber

It’s so funny to say I love our New Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber, because, well, it’s a toilet scrubber. But anyone who hates the thought of a germy toilet brush sitting in their bathrooms will understand. When you combine that with how amazing the scrubber works, it’s a win/win! And don’t forget to stock up on the Scotch-Brite® Disposable Toilet Scrubber Refills! We found ours at Kroger, in the cleaning aisle. They weren’t with the other disposable toilet brushes, they were in their own special Scotch-Brite™ section. Ready to try it for yourself? It’s your lucky day! As of December 4, Kroger (and Kroger banner stores!) are offering an in-store BOGO for the Disposable Toilet Scrubber Starter Kit. So go get yourself two for the price of one! ;)

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
