In an ideal world, when it comes to guests for your home; things will be very simple. Only those who you like and admire shall call on you, they’ll always call ahead to let you know and they’ll also always give you plenty of time to prepare yourself and your home.
But unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. Most times, we hardly have time to prepare for them ourselves, let alone prepare our home. As a result, whenever the doorbell chimes, we’re in a mild state of panic; trying to figure out which part of the house is “safe” for your guests to look at. This is especially true if we have messy washrooms; the place where most visitors see. Here’s how you can keep your bathrooms’ guest ready always, and avoid that nasty feeling of panic.
Form an “every night” clean up routine
We know that most homemakers today don’t have a lot of time to spend cleaning their homes. Be it because they’re busy with work or children, the truth is that sometimes, there just isn’t enough time. This results in us neglecting our chores, and that, causes those chores to pile up. If you are at a habit of washing up every night before going to bed, then use this time to do a little cleaning. Straighten out the used things, squeegee the shower and bathroom tiles Bankstown free of water, lightly wash the sink and empty out the bathroom bin. See? It’s simple!
And now for a weekly routine
The above should keep your bathrooms relatively clean; but it does need to be cleaned properly at least once a week. If you have simple, groove-less porcelain floor tiles in your bathrooms, then count yourself lucky. These are the easiest, in our opinion, to keep clean and maintained. Make sure to pay attention to cleaning the bathroom counters as well as the fixtures and fittings. Also, having a fitted sponge at the bottom of your soap dish will help you catch those bits of soap that usually cause a mess. You can even use that sponge to wash out the sink if you want.
Learn to embrace the clutter free lifestyle
We know this is hard; especially if you live a hectic lifestyle. But think about it, most bathrooms that look messy, look so mainly because of the things cluttering the counters (like makeup brushes, blow-driers and even half closed hair gel tubs) and not because it’s actually dirty. By taking a few seconds to put away the things you use (and assigning each thing a proper place right in your bathroom), you’re making your “cleanup time” at night much shorter.
Fresh air is important
Just like the rest of your home, your bathroom too needs fresh air. Try to keep the windows open always, or at least, during the day. If your bathroom doesn’t have windows, you can still keep it smelling fresh and clean, if nothing else, simply by investing on the right air freshener. Make sure to get the correct one, so that you don’t feel overwhelmed by its smell when you walk in; especially after it has been closed for a few hours. Take your time and experiment with the scents…you’ll find the one!
