How To Clean Sink and Vanity Area?

Materials Required for Cleaning:

  • A Clean washcloth or hand towel, a sponge, cleaning cloths, a stiff brush, and cleaning supplies.
  •  Make space for cleaning.
  •  Move guest toiletries when necessary.
  • Place a clean washcloth or hand towel on that spot and keep the guest toiletries on it.
  •  Move the guest toiletries with a washcloth or towel.
  •  Wipe the light fixture, towel racks, and other bathroom fixtures.
  •  Neatly arrange them once the cleaning is completed.
  •  Wash the ashtrays, wastebasket, and washbasin:
  •  Spray a little diluted LOC in the washbasin.
  •  Scrub inside the wash basin and the tap fixtures with a nylon scrubber.
  •  Scrub the vanity counter and the side shelves with a diluted solution of LOC.
  •  Wash with a generous amount of water.
  •  Wash the ashtrays and wastebasket with your sponge, rinse them out in the sink, and dry them with a clean cloth.
  •  Set the clean ashtrays aside in the wastebasket.
  •  Rinse your sponge and clean your clothes as needed.
  •  Remove the sink stopper.

Clean surface area:

  • Spray cleaning solutions on the sink, stopper, overflow, and main sink drains, fixtures, and vanity.
  •  Use a stiff brush to clean overflow holes in the sink as dirt often collects in sink overflow drains.
  •  Using a sponge wipe all the surfaces.
  •  Polish with a dry cloth to prevent water spots.
  •  Wipe dry with a towel and discard the entire vanity counter, side shelves, and inside the washbasin.
  •  No watermarks on the chrome features or the counter.
  •  Dust below the vanity counter, wooden shelves, and inside the vanity counter cupboard, which conceals the bottle trap and the plumbing fixtures.
  •  Sweep and mop below the vanity counter. The vanity counter has to be spotlessly clean with no spots or marks.

Cleaning chrome (Taps and fixtures):

  • All chrome in the bathroom is wiped with a damp cloth and then polished with a dry rag.
  •  All chrome items are free of watermarks, and smears, to make them shiny. These include polished taps, showerheads, soap holders, toilet paper holders, towel racks, and towel rods.  
  •  All chrome fixtures are cleaned and polished dry showing no smears, dirty marks, or fingerprints.
