  1. Scrub sinks and countertops

    Put on the rubber gloves. Scrub all sinks and countertops using a bathroom cleaner or a baking soda, ammonia and water mixture. If the countertop is made of plastic laminate, scrub the surface with a scrubbing pad. Avoid using steel wool on marble.

  2. Buff the mirrors

    Clean the mirrors with a mirror cleaning solution or a homemade cleaner. For a homemade cleaner, mix two cups of rubbing alcohol and water with two tablespoons of dishwashing detergent. Spray the mirror with the cleaner, then rub with a cloth.

  3. Clean the showers and bathtubs

    Use a cleaner to scrub down bathtubs and shower stalls. For porcelain, use a liquid cleaner and a scouring pad. For fiberglass, use a nonabrasive cleaner and a sponge. For shower stalls, spray the enclosures with a mildew inhibitor. Rub down glass with white vinegar to get rid of water deposits.

  4. Wash shower curtains and bath mats

    Clean shower curtains and bath mats by putting them through a washing machine cycle. Use equal parts baking soda and detergent, and when the rinse cycle starts, add 1 cup of vinegar. Hang up the wet curtain, and spray it with disinfectant.

  5. Clean the toilet

    Start by cleaning the toilet bowl using a toilet cleaner or chlorine bleach. Use a long-handled brush to scrub it out. Clean the rest of the toilet.

    What are some tips to create a lighthouse decor in your bathroom?

    A:

    Decorate a bathroom with shapes and materials that evoke the rustic simplicity of real lighthouses: beadboard painted white, gray or pale blue on walls; brass fittings and fixtures; a half clamshell with a smooth beach stone in it as a soap holder on the sink. A touch of nautical decor, such as a row of semaphore pennants over the shower curtain or a coiled rope bath mat, is more effective than over-the-top, everything-lighthouse kitsch.
