Lenten Cleaning: In the Bathroom...
I try to deep clean our home as much as I am able during the weeks when we fast. I find that it is really wonderful to enjoy having everything clean and organized for the Great Feasts of the year. I plan on breaking my cleaning up by cleaning one room or area each week of the Fast (there are seven weeks). For the first week of Lent, I focused on the bathrooms. I also tried to keep up with my regular daily cleaning and laundry routines as much as possible so that the bathrooms weren't spotless, while the rest of the house looked like a war zone with naked children running around!
Cabinets and Drawers
Wash curtains, windows, and shower curtain (or glass shower doors)
Linen closet and light fixtures
Dust and clean any picture frames, decorations, bottles, jars, soap dishes/dispensers. Clean out the bath toys (discard broken ones, clean the container that you keep them in, etc.). Dust the baseboards and check for spiderwebs in the corners!
