For my bathroom cleaning, hot water and just a tad of white vinegar was enough to do the job. My bathroom floor was super messy due to dog hair, and my bath tub had the gross layer of soap scum. The white vinegar knocked most of that out, along with removing nasty water spots from the stainless steel. Forgive the overload of pics, just wanted to make sure everything was covered.

Took me an entire day on and off to get this done! In Japan most toilets and bathrooms are separate, so this was two different rooms for me - three if you count the shower/bathtub room separate from the face washing/towel room. We regularly clean the floors, toilet, sink, and counter, so they aren't that disgusting to begin with. I gave particular attention to a few places that had accumulated some grime. And I haven't found a solution for keeping the in-shower mirror clear - it always gets foggy/deposits.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
 - clean a bathroom
     - before and after pics of
          - toilet
          - sink/counter
          - floor
          - tub/shower
          - mirror
     - report on what cleaners were used
          - at least 80% is completed with warm water and elbow grease
          - remainder with grey water friendly cleaners

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must:
- post a before picture of: toilet, sink,/counter, floor, tub/shower, and mirror
- post an after picture of: toilet, sink,/counter, floor, tub/shower, and mirror
- post a report on what cleaners you used

Cleaner report:
I used elbow grease, baking soda, and rice vinegar. Baking soda helped with the grime in the shower. Vinegar helped with the sink faucet.

We make our all purpose cleaner with one part peroxide and one part water with a few drops of essential oils (sugar ants don't like citrus so we often use that). That is what I used a little bit to wipe down the sink, toilet, and tub. To clean the floor, I used MURPHY wood cleaner, which is a biodegradable oil soap, and scrubbed it. I will put a link to the soap below.

Cleaned our Bathroom today! My bathroom is a bit of a permanent hot-mess. When we began the process to purchase this house, there were MANY MANY more people inhabiting it than there were supposed to be (a couple of fellows were even living in the outdoor laundry). We were assured the tenants were vacating the premises at the end of their tenancy agreement, which was to occur a month before hand-over.
As you are probably guessing, this did not happen and the previous owner was still removing trash and “cleaning” the day we were supposed to move in. We have since spent 9months continuing this momentous task, our local Recycle Centre has become very used to us arriving with trailer loads for them.
What does this have to do with the bathroom you ask?
Well, one of the large-form tiles in the shower/bathroom was kicked into the wall cavity, leaving a sizeable hole. We have taped builders plastic over the wall to allow us to shower without flooding our wall cavities. It makes the space useable, albeit rather difficult to clean, till we can afford to gut and rebuild the room. This, along with the hammer-struck floor tiles, the missing wall vanity and mirror (since replaced with a spare mirror we had at hand) has left us with a lack-luster space. So please, no judgement for the state of the place, we are doing what we can till we can do more.

Most of the room was cleaned with hot water, a cloth and a stiff bristled brush. What needed a little bit of help to shift I used vinegar and water solution with extra application of elbow grease
