How to Use a Steam Mop as a Whole Bathroom Cleaner

How to Use a Steam Mop as a Whole Bathroom Cleaner

When it comes to cleaning bathrooms, you could say it’s our least favorite household chore. If we had to describe it in a single word, we’d use disgusting. No matter how often we clean our bathrooms, we’re always dreading the next time we have to clean them. Sure, sometimes it’s the mess that bothers us. But that’s not our biggest complaint. It’s more the process of bathroom cleaning and all the different bathroom cleaning supplies and steps that go into it. It just takes forever. Unless you’re using one of our steam mops. They really are game changers when it comes to ending the search for the best way to clean bathrooms. We love them so much, we think after just one use, a steam mop may have you considering tossing out the rest of your bathroom cleaning tools!

If you’re wondering how to clean the bathroom without using chemicals, steam is your answer, too. Our steam products use only water to clean hard surfaces like ceramic, linoleum, granite, and marble, which are commonly found in bathrooms. If you’re worried about your bathroom not smelling clean after using a steam mop, don’t worry. They come with the option to add one of our scented demineralized waters to freshen up your bathroom. We offer the water in three scents: Citrus, Spring Breeze or Eucalyptus Mint. You can also add a Spring Breeze or Pet Odor Eliminating scent disc to your steam mop for an even fresher scent while you clean.

Many of our steam mops convert into handheld steamers, making them two machines in one. But our PowerFresh® Slim Steam Heavy Duty Steam Mop takes it to the next level by being three machines in one. It functions as a standard steam mop for use as a bathroom tile cleaner. It also works as an extended reach cleaner with an extension wand to clean hard-to-reach areas like shower corners. Plus, it works as a handheld steamer when the extension wand is taken off, so you can clean other areas in your bathroom like the sink, toilet, counters, and more. It’s our favorite product to recommend to people when they ask us how to clean bathrooms.


Scrub a Dub Dub

Using your steam mop in the handheld steamer function is the best way to clean bathtubs, in our opinion. It’s so much easier than using a sponge and scrubbing. All you have to do is keep the foot and the microfiber pad on the steamer and make a few swipes along the edges and the bottom of the tub. If your tub is also a shower, you can use the steamer on the shower walls. This also works if you have just a stand up shower and no tub. (You get the point.) You also have the option of switching out the foot of your PowerFresh® Slim Steam with one of the 7 included tools. For shower and tub cleaning, the flat surface tool would work best. But you can also use a grout tool, bristle scrub brush, angle tool, red bristle scrub brush, or a fabric steaming tool. While the last one won’t necessarily help people looking for ideas or tips on how to clean a bathroom, it is a nice added feature!

"The steam mop looks sleek and beautiful. It comes with many different accessories for the different jobs it can tackle. User friendly as well. I especially liked the accessories for the shower. It now makes cleaning the bathroom a breeze. And it has really helped keep a more hygienic house for a couple that works 12-15 hour days. It makes keeping up with the cleaning faster.”*  - S. Lancaster, 5-star review

Everything Including the Bathroom Sink

The usefulness of steam mops when cleaning the bathroom doesn’t stop in the shower. Almost all the tools listed above come in handy in other tricky spots in the bathroom, too. For example, you can use the grout tool to clean between floor and counter tiles, the angle tool is great for getting around the shower faucet, and the red bristle scrub brush is perfect for scrubbing the sink and toilet. And all these tools store directly on the PowerFresh® Slim Steam, so switching them out while cleaning is no big deal.

Using this steam mop as an actual mop is perfect for cleaning one of the worst parts of the bathroom – around the toilet. In most bathrooms, the toilet is right up next to at least one wall, if not two. Luckily, this mop is built with a slim design and a low profile, so you can mop that space. It also has swivel steering, so in one motion, you can move the mop to clean behind the toilet, too.

And when you’re done cleaning your bathroom, this machine comes with a wall mount so you can hang it up on the wall with all its tools, so it’s ready to clean next time you need it. This steam mop is just one of the many ways BISSELL® products make cleaning all over your home easier!
