Cleaning the bathroom may very well be the worst of all the household chores, but Apartment Therapy has put together a quick five-minute daily routine that can save you hours of scrubbing.

The basic idea of Apartment Therapy’s routine is to break bathroom cleaning into five 60-second chunks that you can do at any point in the day. Here’s the basic breakdown:
- Minute one: clearing off surfaces
- Minute two: surface cleaning
- Minute three: straightening
- Minute four: wipe down mirrors and fixtures
- Minute five: assess and wipe down anything else
You can mix things up a bit to fit your needs. For instance, my bathroom is the size of a small closet, so clearing of surfaces is pretty much non-existant, but I could spend that minute sweeping instead. The important part to remember is to keep it short and do it daily so you don’t have to do a deep scrub down the line. Head over to Apartment Therapy for a breakdown of each minute and more cleaning suggestions.
