Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your Airbnb cleaners started a job, but they did not finish because you were short of supplies? When this happens, it can be a huge inconvenience for you, the cleaners, and the guests. There is also the possibility that the job may not be done well because the right cleaning products were not there. Unfortunately, this will only earn you bad reviews from guests. Guests are always looking for clean spaces. The cleanliness of the bathroom is particularly very important because even a few strands of hair seen on the bathroom sink or shower floor can be a turn-off. To ensure thorough cleanliness, here is a bathroom cleaning checklist for Airbnb.
A good method for cleaning up any space is basically the top-down method. This makes your cleaning work much easier. If you are looking for an organic glass cleaner, you will need the Clean Cult all-purpose cleaner. But if you are not concerned about such matters, Windex will do just fine. Both products do a great job and will leave your mirrors without any streak marks. A helpful tip for cleaning mirrors is being consistent with your wiping patterns. This will help prevent obtrusive streaks.
💡 Facts about how mirrors work!
The reflection is caused by the metallic coating on the back. When you stand in front of a mirror, your body reflects light patterns. Those light patterns reflect off the mirror and back into your eyes. The patterns of light are then interpreted by your brain as an image of yourself in the mirror.
After the mirrors, the next area is the countertop. Again, if you are looking for an organic product that will help get the job done, get the Countertop Cleanser. For non-organic, even antibacterial wipes will do. You need a good piece of cloth to wipe the surfaces, and this is where the microfiber clothes come in. It is estimated that these clothes can reduce your cleaning time by around 30% as they are as good at absorbing dirt and liquids. They are also eco-friendly as they are reusable, and if you buy in bulk, it will be a while before restocking again. When cleaning counters, remember to remove items that can obstruct you, such as baskets. Once you are done, you can return them. Wipe the doorknobs and light switches as well.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”Love this spray! It has such a pleasant smell I wish there was an air freshener so my whole house could smell like this. It’s a light sweet, citrus smell and it leaves a nice natural shine on my kitchen counters. I will be buying more! (I purchased the grapefruit one)” – GlowMafia
You can wipe the counters together with the bathroom sinks. If you are looking for a product that will quickly dissolve soap scum, hair, and gunk, Drano is the product for you. It helps eliminate clogged drains in a few minutes. Simply pour the recommended amount down the drain and wait for it to work the magic. Rinse with hot water and you are good to go.
For the glass shower doors, you will need to use a squeegee. Get it from the start, as it will help keep the glass clear. You can also leave a short note requesting your guests to use it after a shower. However, be prepared that some will do it and others will ignore it. Still, you can be sure that your Airbnb cleaner will make use of it, and that is what matters. You can still use the same cleaning products you used on the mirror to keep the shower glass door clean. The showerhead will also need a good wash. A good mixture of water and vinegar will do the trick. For the shower tiles, you will need an Oxi-Clean versatile stain remover. It comes in handy for removing those stubborn stains on shower tiles.
Who invented showers?
Fast forward to 1767, when the first patent for a shower was granted to William Feetham, a stove maker from Ludgate Hill in London. These early modern-day showers were powered by a hand pump and used less water than baths
Toilets often harbor dangerous bacteria and so it is a good idea to use a non-organic product. One of the products you will need to add to the bathroom cleaning checklist for Airbnb is Clorox Bleach. It will help eliminate all the germs and leave the toilet clean. You will also need a good compact brush that you can easily tuck behind the storage once you are done cleaning. The OXO Good Grips Toilet Brush is ideal. It hides the bristles and balances perfectly behind the toilet.
As expected, the floor will be the last area to clean. For this, you need Pine-Sol. It does a great job on different types of floor surfaces like tile, wood, laminate, etc. It is not exactly organic, but similar to toilets, you want to ensure you have thoroughly disinfected the floors. It will also leave the bathroom with a fresh and clean smell.
Other additional cleaning products you might need include
- Latex gloves
- Barkeeper for porcelain sinks and bathroom fixtures, and faucets
- Magic erasers for sinks and faucets
Now that you are aware of what needs to be on your bathroom cleaning checklist Airbnb, stock up. Not only will you avoid inconveniencing your cleaners, but you will also have eased the cleaning job for them.
