Sometimes you will walk into your bathroom thinking that it is rather cluttered. Chances are, it truly is. Much like every other room of your home, you have to stay on top of cleaning and decluttering it, if you wish it to remain functional and organised. Here is a quick list of things you should purge from the area:
- Hair products – sometimes you will see a great ad or a video of a new hair product and rush to buy it. Then, as you try it out, you find out that it doesn’t work that well. What you might do is simply store it under the sink for later use … and then forget about it for the next six months. What you should do instead is browse through your collection of such products, decide what you are going to use soon and dispose of the rest. Whether it is by giving it away to someone else or donating, you can free yourself a lot of space by doing such a purge.
- Medications past their expiry date – when you buy something for your cold, you will probably toss the remaining items back in your medicine cabinet. In doing this, you can clutter the place with expired medications. Not only do they take precious space, but are also a health risk. Go through the medicine cabinet and dispose of anything that is way past expiry date.
- Bath items – if you have too many bath items that you rarely use, perhaps it is time to dispose of them. They could be the reason why you aren’t getting stuff that is actually useful. Inspect the bath products you currently have in the room and consider which ones you will need and which ones you can dispose of.
- Toothbrushes – believe it or not, toothbrushes are useful not only for your teeth. You can use them in various cleaning chores around the house. But you can have too much of a good thing. You can keep 2 or 3 of them, and they will not contribute to clutter all that much. However, if you have over 10 toothbrushes, it is perhaps more than you will need.
- Old shower items – is there an old pumice stone, a dull razor blade, perhaps a crusty sponge? Everything that looks old and dingy has no place in the bathroom. Throwing things out may not seem like the best solution for you, but it is.
- Travel size items and samples – these can easily build up, especially if you get them on your travels on a frequent basis. Free samples are available everywhere, but you have to remember to use them as soon as possible, or else they become a burden to free space in your bathroom.
Take your time to check your bathroom for these items and dispose of them if needed. You will free some much-needed space and make cleaning of the place much easier.
