Organize Your Bathroom
Organize Your Bathroom
Most people underestimate how much time they spend in the bathroom looking for things while trying to get ready for the day. When you take some time to organize the home bathroom, it makes your life much easier and keeps the bathroom cleaner all week long. It might take a few hours one weekend to get organized, but you’ll save a lot of time later when everything is in its place. Here are some tips to get your bathroom in order.
- Get an over-the-shower hanging organizer to store your shampoo and soap. You won’t worry about them falling off the edge of the tub and they won’t get mildew on your windowsill. And you won’t have to keep moving them every time you clean.
- Find a shower rod with a towel bar for double duty. This way you can hang up wet items, like used towels or hand-washed lingerie over the tub.
- Streamline supplies. Do a deep clean and get rid of outdated products and unused items. Then purchase storage containers to maintain order in the bathroom. Find a lazy Susan to put on the counter for essentials that can’t go in the drawers and closets. Use baskets to hold rolls of toilet paper and towels.
- Put items you use every day in the top drawer. Get dividers to make finding makeup brushes and different makeup items easier than ever. Put your special cosmetics into a special bag and stash them away until needed.
- Mount a shelf above the toilet tank to take advantage of vertical space. Get containers to store cotton balls, and think tall and narrow storage containers.
- Limit the towels in the bathroom to two per person. Do a load of laundry regularly to keep it under control. Have a hamper for used towels, but make sure family members don’t toss wet towels in the hamper. Teach everyone to hang up used towels.
- Regularly toss items that aren’t working. Don’t put stretched out ponytail holders back into the mix. Throw them away. Get rid of expired medicines. Find a disposal program for used medications at fda.gov. Don’t forget to regularly change potpourri and candles or they will become dust magnets. Give your bath soaps and oils that you won’t ever use to someone who would appreciate them.
- Find a cute storage container for your styling tools to keep them from becoming a tangled mess in the drawer or on the counter. Put your tools away once you’re finished with your hair.
- Don’t keep buying products without tossing away older bottles. Keeping the clutter to a minimum in your bathroom will help it appear bigger and cleaner.
- Keep bathroom cleaners handy, but make sure children can’t get into them. Take five minutes before bed to wipe down the surfaces in your bathroom and straighten everything up. You’ll wake up and be ready to find what you need to start your day.
It does take time to keep up with your bathroom, but it reduces the germs and encourages your family to maintain their cleanliness.
