After cleaning out your bathroom of unneeded items, you'll immediately feel a sense of relief. Here's how to purge your bathroom over the course of ten days if you can't do it in one day.

2. Wash shower curtain, rugs, hand towels: Now is the time to start washing your shower curtain, rugs and hand towels if you don't already do so regularly.

Regularly cleaning your rugs, shower curtain and hand towels will help reduce bathroom mold and will improve the smell of your bathroom.

3. Wipe down chrome fixtures with microfiber: Microfiber cloth is an effective way to eliminate dust and finger prints. After wiping down your chrome fixtures with a microfiber cloth, take some time to wipe down your countertops.
