Living in a coastal town means that I see my fair share of warm-weather visitors! Spring is right around the corner so it’s time to get the house ready for entertaining. Whether it’s a weekend guest or a family member that pops in to say “hi”, I want my home to look clean and inviting for them.
Like most people, I’ve been on a total organization kick this winter (thanks Marie Kondo!) and boy…is it addictive! As soon as I make an area look tidy, I want to tackle another space! A big challenge for me has always been keeping the bathroom organized. The bathroom is the smallest room in the house, but it’s also the most-used so the potential for clutter is high! Today I teamed up with the *NEW* Softsoap® Décor Collection® to share some sure-fire ways to keep your bathroom clean.

Keep countertops clean– I think countertops look best with fresh foliage and a beautiful bottle of liquid hand soap. These liquid hand soaps from the Softsoap® Décor Collection® are so pretty, you don’t even need to decant them! The liquid hand soap feels luxurious and each scent (Softsoap® Wild Basil & Lime, Softsoap® Shea & Cocoa Butter, and Softsoap® Peony & Plum) is heavenly! I like to match the bottles to my bathroom decor. Softsoap® Shea & Cocoa Butter compliments this bathroom’s neutral decor perfectly!
Pare down your stuff- The less stuff you have, the easier it is to keep it organized. Small bathroom items have a way of collecting until you have a big, cluttered mess. I found the most effective way is to empty out the bathroom drawers and go through all the items in one sitting. Discard things like expired medicine, “goopy” nail polishes, old makeup and products you know you’ll never use. Also, use up products before buying new ones. I can’t be only one with 5 bottles of shampoo in the shower…right?
A Place for Everything and Everything in Its Place– Store frequently used items where they will be easily accessible. I had a bad habit of leaving items I use daily (moisturizer, toothpaste, contact lens solution, etc) on the countertop. I found that it’s just as easy to put them in the drawer under the sink as it is to leave them out. Plus, it looks so much tidier!
Make your Bathroom Easy to Clean– I like to leave a small container with cleaning supplies in the linen closet, so there’s no excuse not to clean up a spill when it happens. An organized bathroom is much easier and faster to clean because you don’t have to waste time addressing random clutter.
With my house looking neat and tidy, I’m ready to enjoy all the fun the warm weather brings!
