I used microfiber cloths, water, and elbow crease for the majority.  Note: the microfiber cloths are larger, thicker, and less expensive in the car wash section of the hardware store.  For the toilet, I used baking soda and a vinegar spray.  Same with the tub.  For the floor, I beat the rugs outside, swept the floor, then used my Shark steamer to clean and sanitize since the bathroom is not just used by women.

Taking this closer look, I think I will need to replace the caulking, clean the shower head, and find a place for more towels.

I cleaned my bathroom today. I mainly used warm water and elbow grease, but used some baking soda and the general purpose spray I made for a different BB (permies.com/wiki/157703/pep-nest/General-Purpose-Natural-Cleaner-PEP#1987927) for the toilet. It is made up of vinegar, water and lemon juice.

I used warm water, vinegar, baking soda, and lemon juice as cleaning agents, and a whole lot of elbow grease with the aid of rags and scrubbers.

Cleaned the bathroom today. Used water, vinegar spray, baking soda, rag, scrub brush, broom/dustpan. Wish I also used knee-pads for scrubbing the floor.

I'm using elbow grease, baking soda, and vinegar and water to clean surfaces.  I’m also using cloths, scrapers, a scrub brush, broom and reusable/washable mop.
