I have also created a free printable bathroom cleaning checklist that you can download so you can be sure the entire bathroom is clean from top to bottom!

The Bathroom Cleaning Checklist: A Step-by-Step Guide
Clean the ceiling and light fixtures.
Start at the top and work your way down. This will help you avoid getting water or cleaning solutions on surfaces that have already been cleaned.
A special extendable ceiling duster or even a sock on the end of a broom handle will help you reach high areas and corners. Wipe down the ceiling blades and fixtures and remove any light globes and wash them out with warm soapy water.
Clean the windows
If you have a shower curtain, be sure to look at the care instructions and if you can, take it down and wash it in the washing machine. If you don't have a washing machine, you can hand wash it in the tub with some mild detergent. Allow to dry and if necessary, run an iron or steamer over them.
Then wash the windows using hot soapy water or a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to clean the inside and outside of the windows. Be sure to open the windows and clean the sill as well with either a rag or vacuum.
If you're extra ambitious, before cleaning the outside of the window, wash the window screens to get any dust and dirt off.
Clean out the medicine cabinet & vanity
Take everything out of the medicine cabinet and/or vanity.
First, get rid of any expired medication. There are certain guidelines for disposing of expired medications safely. You can find a list of those guidelines here - https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/where-and-how-dispose-unused-medicines.
Next, clean out the inside of the cabinet and/or vanity with a soapy rag or cleaning wipes. Wipe down all surfaces, including the door (inside and out), shelves, drawers, and handles. Once everything is wiped down and dry, you don't want to put dirty items back in, so be sure to clean hairbrushes, combs, makeup brushes, toothbrushes, and other items.
To finish this area off, wipe down the outside of the vanity and give the sink a good scrub.
Clean the bathtub and/or shower
Start by removing the shower curtain and washing it. If you don't have a washing machine, you can hand wash it in the tub with some mild detergent.
While the shower curtain is drying, move on to cleaning the tub and/or shower. Scrub any shelving and soap dishes. Then spray the shower or tub with an all-purpose cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and water. Let it sit for a few minutes, then use a scrub brush to remove any soap scum, mold, or mildew, hard water stains, and stubborn grout lines. Rinse well and dry with a towel.
To finish off this area, wipe off the fixtures, and clean glass shower doors if you have them so this area is nice and shiny.
Last, be sure to check caulk and grout as small cracks will allow water to seep through, creating a lot of damage to your home later.
Clean the toilet
No one likes cleaning toilets, but it's a necessary evil, especially with boys. You may want to remove the toilet seat so that you can get under the bolt covers. Then you can spray the toilet bowl and base with an all-purpose cleaner or a mixture of vinegar and water. Let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub it with a toilet brush.
