6 Tips On How To Declutter Your Bathroom
Ah, Bathrooms. The room in your house that is set aside strictly for grooming and maintaining healthy hygiene. Because this room in your house is solely for the purpose of taking care of business that means it can get pretty messy at times. We have some tips to help you get your bathroom clean and organized so you can end the clutter.
Here are six great tips for decluttering your bathroom:
Tip #1 Have A Designated Bathroom Basket
The great thing about a bathroom basket is that you can put all of your bathroom cleaning supplies in it and you’ll always know where to find them. Grab a small basket from the dollar store and put it under the sink. Then fill it with Windex, bleach, toilet bowl cleaner, and you’re good to go.
Tip #2 Get Crafty With Appliance Storage
There are many different things you can do to store hair care appliances like blow dryers and hair straighteners. For example, you can attach a file organizer or magazine rack to the side of your bathroom sink, or to the inside of a cabinet door. Then store your dryer and straightener inside. This way these are out of the way and not left out on the counter. The more counter space the better.
Tip #3 Make Use Of Drawers
Small miscellaneous items like Headbands, toe spacers, and bobby pins tend to get thrown on countertops and left to gather dust. Sort them into divided organizer drawer trays. You can get them at the dollar store in packs of three. And the great thing about them is that you can use them all throughout your house. You can also get a utensil organizer, the same kind you would use in your kitchen for forks, knives, and spoons, and put it in the draw for toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.
Tip #4 If You Don’t Use It, Lose It
It’s common to walk into any private bathroom and find products that simply aren’t being used. Products that don’t work the way you thought they would. Or even products that are expired like old medicine. The sooner you get these products out, the sooner you have more space to play with. Make sure the products you actively use are front and center while products that you only use on occasion are put away.
TIp #5 Add A Recycling Bin
You may not know this, but there’s a huge problem with toiletries filling the landfills. Most if not all bathroom products come in plastic containers that are being thrown away after each use. They then end up piled up in a landfill where they won’t disintegrate. Just but a small bin by your trash can where you can throw the containers after you’re through with them. You can then reuse them for crafts or sell them online on places like Etsy and Ebay.
Tip #6 Install A Shelf
This might be one of the more obvious bathroom decluttering tips. But the real question is where do you install that shelf at? One of the best places to put a shelf is above your bathroom door. this is where you can put all of those products that don’t get used on a daily basis. And it looks neat too.
