Being the neat freak that I am, sharing a bathroom is not the easiest thing to do. If you’re sharing a bathroom with a significant other or roommates, here are some tips to help organize it.
Clean out the medicine cabinet. This is often the place in the bathroom where things go to die, or at least to lurk for what can feel like all eternity. Think of the mostly empty bottles of cough syrup, the scattered cotton balls, the toiletries you tried for a while but didn’t like: they’re all taking up valuable space. Take the time to weed out anything that’s old, expired, potentially dangerous, or unusable.
Update your towels. Though you don’t have to spring for entirely new sets of towels, consider replacing any that are worn, frayed, or no longer absorbent. (Old towels can make great cleaning rags-because, hey, why not update your rag collection, too!) If your bathroom is used by several people and towel ownership often gets called into question, you might consider assigning each housemate or family member a particular towel color; that way, there will be less arguing over who’s responsible for the blue towels heaped on the floor.
