Sharing a Bathroom

Sharing a Bathroom

Keeping a small space, like a bathroom, clean, organized and comfortable is often a challenge by yourself… adding a spouse, child or roommate and a bathroom can easily become messy, dirty and overrun with junk.  UGH!!! So, try abiding by these simple rules and sharing this small space will be much more enjoyable.

KEEP IT CLEAN.  There are very few people who enjoy cleaning the toilet.  To alleviate friction, and a dirty bathroom, take turns cleaning the bathroom. Make sure you are always stocked up on cleaning supplies and that they are stored in the bathroom. Disinfectant wipes every night are an easy way to keep the bathroom sink, vanity and toilet clean.  Make sure you are always stocked up on cleaning supplies and that they are stored in the bathroom. Don’t forget to wash your towels… old towels can make even a clean bathroom smell like mildew.

USE A SHOWER CADDY.  A shower cluttered with bottles isn’t relaxing or efficient, especially when multiple people are sharing one shower!  Using a shower caddy helps eliminate clumsiness and confusion.  Just hang a shower caddy like the InterDesign Classico Swing Shower Caddy.  It has different shelves so you can keep your items contained in one space, yet keep them separate.

BE CONSIDERATE.  Paying attention to even the small things will make a big difference to your spouse, roommate or kids.  Don’t leave clothes on the floor – get a hamper, pull the shower curtain so it can dry and not become moldy and if you use the last of the TP, replace it.  No one wants to get stuck on the toilet with no toilet paper.
