If your household is like most homes in America, mornings are a hectic, harried time with everyone rushing about, frantic to get ready for work and school: anxious to get out the door and about their day. Arguably, when the bathroom is in a chaotic state, so often are those persons using it. Nothing can get everyone’s day off to a bad start like wanting to use the sink to shave or wash your face, only to find the sink clogged, or to jump in the shower and find there are no clean towels handy. Maintaining a clean and functional bathroom helps everyone in the household have a functional day. Setting aside a few minutes daily to maintain order in the bathroom will help clear the chaos. Whatever gets done in the time you can allocate is enough for today. Tomorrow’s time can include other tasks. What’s That Odor? Focus on anything that may have an unpleasant smell. Does the trash bin need to be emptied or damp towels put in the laundry? Is a toilet clogged or a drain sluggish? Locate the smell and enact a solution. Turn On The Fan Operate the bathroom exhaust fan while you are giving the bathroom a quick tidy up. The fan will remove excess moisture in the air and help prevent mold and mildew. Clear The Clutter Remove anything that doesn’t belong in the bathroom. Sort miscellaneous items and put them in their right place. De-cluttering will help clear vanity, cabinet tops, and the floor. This task includes picking up all the dirty laundry and putting it in the hamper. Put Bathroom Items Back Where They Belong Put the cap back on the toothpaste and return grooming tools and cosmetics to their spot in drawers or baskets. Whatever it may be, ensure each item is returned to its proper place. Tomorrow’s routine will be a lot smoother if you don’t have to waste time looking for your hairbrush. Put A Shine On Keep a bottle of organic bathroom cleaner under the sink. Use a sponge or disposable wipes to give a quick “lick and a promise” to shower/tub, bathroom sink and counter tops. You can do a detailed cleaning of all bathroom surfaces another day. Swish And Sweep Grab the toilet bowl brush and cleanser and do a quick swish of the bowl. Use a handful of disinfect wipes to clean outer toilet surfaces. Sweep the floor to remove debris and dust. Replenish And Replace Take a moment to replenish a fresh supply of towels. Replace toiletries and tissue. Sparkle And Shine Use disposable glass cleaning wipes to give mirrors and faucets a fast once over to restore sparkle and shine while disinfecting to remove germs and bacteria.
