An organised bathroom is one of the best ways to allow for easy cleaning. While you may not have your dream bathroom, it doesn’t matter how big or small the space is there are steps you can take to make your bathroom as clutter-free and functional as possible. Here at Why Bother Cleaning we know how helpful an organised bathroom can be for easy cleaning. That’s why we’ve written this article to let you know the top 5 ways to organise your bathroom for easy cleaning.
Why You Should Have an Organised Bathroom
Your bathroom is one of the dirtiest areas of your home and is certainly a space that gets dusty, unhygienic and cluttered easily. The benefits of having an organised bathroom go way beyond aesthetics, it makes your bathroom more functional and it also makes the cleaning process significantly easier.
1. Organise Your Shower and Bath
The shower and bathtub can be tough spaces to keep organised because they are not often built with storage in mind. As a result, storing items such as shampoo, conditioner, body scrub, and razors can be extremely difficult. Avoid the problem of storing items on the shower tray or edge of the bath by installing shower caddies.
Shower caddies are a cheap and easy solution that can suction onto the tiles of your bathroom, providing stylish storage within easy reach. Storing your bathroom products in this way can make cleaning significantly easier because you don’t need to empty out every item you own before wiping down the shower tray or rinsing out the bath.
2. Organise Your Bathroom Counters
Let’s be honest, the less you have stacked on your bathroom counters the easier they are to clean. Organising your bathroom counters by removing the clutter is a great way to make your bathroom more functional. Just imagine being able to wash your hands and reach the soap without knocking everything over!
You can store bathroom items in small baskets instead. This is a great way to organise quickly and allows for easy cleaning (as you can easily pick up the baskets and wipe underneath).
3. Organise the Medicine Cabinet
Ah the medicine cabinet, the common bug-bare for homeowners. If your bathroom has a medicine cabinet, it’s likely you know the frustration of packets and bottles falling out every time you open the door. While a medicine cabinet is a good space for all of those important products, they can easily become overcrowded and cluttered.
Our advice would be to only store items you absolutely need in your medicine cabinet. So, some common items would be plasters, medicines, creams, etc. If you keep your bathroom medicine cabinet well organised, you won’t have to replace everything that falls out every time you open the door. What’s more, you will know where everything is – without having to hunt through everything to find a plaster!
4. Clear Your Bathroom Drawers
If you’re lucky enough to have a chest of drawers in your bathroom, perhaps under the sink or as a standalone storage compartment, you should take advantage of the extra space and use it well! You can store plenty of products in these drawers from make up and grooming products, through to moisturisers, body scrubs, and scented candles. The best thing when you have a lot of storage, is to store things away so that your bathroom counters are as clear as possible. Not only does this free your space up from clutter, it also allows for easy cleaning at the end of a busy week!
5. Store Toilet Cleaner Next to the Toilet
This may seem like an obvious point, but so many of us forget to do this and it can make cleaning more difficult. By storing toilet cleaning next to your toilet, you can be reminded regularly to clean your toilet. This is an easy way to streamline the cleaning of your bathroom and ensure that your toilet stays clean and smells fresh throughout the week.
Maintain Your Bathroom Throughout the Week
Remember to maintain your organised bathroom throughout the week. We know it can be difficult to keep on top of the clutter but by sorting through all your belongings and finding a space for everything you own, it is a lot easier to maintain. And cleaning will be a breeze!
