I deep cleaned the bathroom this morning using warm water for the sink, and homemade 10% citrus stepped vinegar and water solution for the rest. The toilet has limescale at the bottom which I'm trying to remove using 100% kombucha vinegar.

Used microfiber cloths, straight vinegar on the soap scum in the shower tracks, toothbrush for the grout, a lot of hot/warm water for most everything.  Not wholly convinced the toilet is clean enough with just water, but somebody used the last of the H202 -- going to try that on the toilet and the walls/ceiling.  The guy who was the original builder of the house built all the bathrooms without windows.  Mildew is a constant problem here in WA.

It's a tiny bathroom, that's why there is overlap on the photos.

ETA: The wipes were already in there.

How would someone complete this bb without having a conventional bathroom?

We use a sawdust bucket toilet which is outside in our shed. rock floor. i could clean the bucket, i suppose.

We have only one mirror, its upstairs in the house. it is not used regularly lol. Right now it is leaning against a wall on the floor.

Our only sink is in the kitchen. i guess i could clean the kitchen sink...


Right now our shower is outside. It sprays onto the lawn.... Same with our "tub" it is just outside on a pallet. fills with a hose from the house and drains onto the grass.


I could clean the floor of our kitchen?


haha!

The tub hasn’t been draining well lately (time to get a plumbing BB, I think), so I ended up spraying more diluted vinegar than usual there. Vinegar is approximately 1:3 with water. Everything else was done with just water, a cleaning cloth, a dry cloth for buffing the mirror, a toilet brush, and a scrub brush and mop for the floor.
