Step 1: Sweep the Floor

A clunky vacuum cleaner probably does more harm than good in a small bathroom. Instead, keep a small broom in your linen closet. Sweep along the edges of the room and work to collect dust and dirt in the middle. Don't forget to reach around the base of the toilet where dust likes to collect! 

An easy way to pick up your small dust pile is with a slightly damp paper towel.

Step 2: Skip the Cleaning Bucket

Keep your cleaning bucket stowed away while you clean the bathroom floor. Instead of hauling it upstairs with your mop while you work, turn the bathroom sink into a makeshift bucket.

All you need to do is close the drain and fill the sink with two gallons of warm water. Add in a quarter-cup of vinegar, one tablespoon of dish soap, and mix until suds form. Submerge a rag into the mixture and wring away excess water. As you wipe the floor, be sure to rinse the rag often between passes.

Step 3: Dry Floors

Why make cleaning bathroom floors any harder than it needs to be? Towel-drying your floors is the best way to make sure they're left sparkling. Instead of crouching down on your hands and knees to dry them, lay a large cloth towel on the ground. Find your balance and put one foot on the towel to move it around the bathroom floor, section by section. Large bathrooms may require two towels, depending on how wet they get. 

Be sure you're starting at the far end of your bathroom so you finish drying by the door. This way you don't have to walk over your freshly-cleaned floors to exit!
