    So how long does it take you to clean a bathroom? I hardly think an hour for 2 bathrooms is an over exaggeration. That's 30 min per bathroom.

    For the weekly clean, 2-3 hours.
    That's wiping down every surface of the house (including kitchen cupboard doors and window sills), cleaning 2 bathrooms, vacuuming and mopping.
    Every month or so, I vacuum the skirting boards and around the ceilings - probably half hour job.
    The windows get left far too long 😕

    Daily housework is just small amounts spread throughout the day, so I don't know how long that takes.

    Alllll week. It's pretty constant and unstructured now I'm at home and heavily pregnant. I used to have a cleaner but that's on hold for the time being.

    20 mins for 2.5 bathrooms. Max. Once a month or so I scrub floors rather than just mopping so it might take a bit longer.

    Really?? Like... the shower screens? Shower tiles? Bathtub? plus toilet, vanity, floors, mirror etc? I do admit I really suck at housework and everything does take me very long, but... that's 8 minutes for a bathroom! How?

    Um. I don't know. I can't fathom it taking longer. I mean toilets take less than a minute. Squirt stuff in. Wipe seat and lid etc. Scrub the bowl.

    I do the screen while I'm in the shower. Another minute. Maybe two if I do both sides.

    The vanity and sink take another two.

    The bath is another two. Maybe three.

    The floor is another two minutes.

    I'm impressed. Maybe it's because I leave it too long between cleans. How often are you doing this?
