Landlord charging cleaning fee for bathroom that's still being used by other tenant?

So I'm moving out of a house due to issues with my landlord and I'm not getting my deposit back until February. I'm completely moved out now and there was no damage to my room but he's telling me he's taking money from the deposit as a cleaning fee for the bathroom. However, I shared the bathroom with another girl from the house who isn't moving out for another couple of weeks. She is cleaning the bathroom before she leaves so I don't understand why he's charging me a fee when there is someone still there and still on the lease. My landlord recently got fired from his job and I feel like he's doing a lot to try and take money from me.. can he charge me for this?? is this legal??
