Thank you to SC Johnson sponsoring today’s post and Printable Cleaning Up Checklist. All opinions are my own.
There are probably 99 things I’d rather do than clean my house. And there are easily 99,999 things I’d rather do than clean the toilet, or any part of the bathroom for that matter. BUT as an “adult,” this girl has accepted the fact that I have certain responsibilities, and that includes cleaning places I’d rather not.
Things I’d rather be doing… walking the dogs, soaking up some sunshine, stitching a new hoop art, heck I’d even rather vacuum and mop the floors than clean the toilets. *Sigh* Where are the cleaning woodland creatures I was led to believe would assist with life? If only it were that easy, right?
I suppose if something MUST be done, I should put on my Mary Poppins hat and find that “element of fun” and for me, the fun comes in the form of a pretty list! It might seem silly, but I get immense satisfaction in checking items off my to-do list. When it’s a pretty printable cleaning up checklist, it’s that much better!
This printable “cleaning up” checklist was created with one of my favorite fonts, keeps things simple and concise AND helps me stay on track with what must be done in each room. Otherwise, my “squirrel syndrome” would kick in and I would get distracted by other things in no time!

Now when it comes to cleaning the actual toilet, I’ve got a secret weapon! Ok… maybe it’s not such a secret, but it sure does make my life easier! Scrubbing Bubbles® Bubbly Bleach Gel Toilet Bowl Cleaner to the rescue!
This toilet bowl cleaner is practically magic and makes cleaning one of the yuckiest parts of my home an absolute breeze! Not only does this cleaner save me time and effort, it also leaves my bathroom smelling fresh and clean. WINNING! Once the toilet is sparkling clean, keep it that way with Scrubbing Bubbles® Fresh Gel Toilet Cleaning Stamps! This continuous toilet bowl cleaner prevents the build-up of limescale and toilet rings with every flush!
You can find both of these products at your local Walmart and I HIGHLY recommend grabbing them the next time you’re there!
So, if you’re anything like me and would rather do anything BUT clean your bathroom, or anything at all (LOL), then this list and my “secret” bathroom cleaning weapon will certainly come in handy!!
What would you rather be doing than cleaning your toilet?
Tara Pittman says
I should print these for my family when I go on a trip. Just maybe the house will be clean when I come home.
I love the look of this list, its such a great idea. This might actually make me look forward to doing a good cleaning in my house lol!
Gladys Parker says
I’d rather be visiting with my grandchildren, reading a good book, visiting with friends just about anything. I like Scrubbing Bubbles for my bathroom it really does make things easier! I’m a big one with lists without one I don’t get alot done either.

I love your printable! These are some of my favorite cleaning supplies!
Last weekend I finally was able to start my spring cleaning. Thanks for these tips. I need to go through it.
I hate cleaning the toilet! Scrubbing Bubbles is great. Toilet rings drive me crazy and some products just don’t cut it.
