Must-Know Tips for Decluttering Your Bathroom

Posted By Raw Sugar on January 18, 2019

The bathroom is meant to be a ‘sanctuary’ – a place to escape the outside chaos, rejuvenate, and restore mind, body and soul. Truth be told, more often than not it can be the last place you’d want to hang out, thanks to an array of overflowing shelves, mismatched towels and out-of-date toiletries. Sound familiar? If so, we’ve got the lowdown to get your bathroom back on track, looking spick, span and stylish in next-to-no time.

STEP ONE: A CLEAN SLATE
Everyone knows the best place to start is from scratch. In this case, that means taking everything out of the bathroom. Yes, everything. Open up the cabinets, clear the counters and take away the towels. Take a good look through all your products. Expired moisturizer? Straight in the bin. Unused beauty samples? Same thing. As for those extra shampoo and conditioner bottles… Hoarding for the sake of having is the very foundation of the clutter. Be ruthless and get rid of what you don’t need. You won’t miss a thing. Promise.

STEP TWO: COUNTER BALANCE
Your cabinets are for storage – not your counter. Keep things out of sight and  beautifully streamlined with a few of life’s essentials on standby such as soap, your toothbrush and toothpaste.

STEP THREE: BRILLIANT SURFACES
Cleaning isn’t everyone’s favorite thing to do, but let’s face it: in this space, it’s essential. Once again, Mother Nature comes to the rescue with a remedy that’s easy to make and works a treat. A 50/50 vinegar/water solution will scrub up tiles, counters, cabinet fronts and soap scum nicely. For hard-to-get-rid-of spots, a mix of baking soda and vinegar will do the trick.

STEP FOUR: BEAUTIFUL DETAILS
Now that you’ve got the above out of the way, it’s time to take in the space and see what you can do to add that ‘something special’. Textured towels, a touch of greenery and soothing bath salts will make the world of difference. Beauty is in the details, after all.

STEP FIVE: REGULAR ROUTINE
Now that you’ve restored order, keep the clutter at bay and your bathroom looking stylish by sticking to a routine. ‘Clean as you go’ works best as it stops it feeling like an overwhelming chore. Simply picking up the towels and putting things back in their place helps to create a calmer space, and keep your newfound sanctuary restored.
