Bathrooms and kitchens are easy to make messes in, so why not make it easy to clean them up? Here are some simple yet strategic tips to help you maintain order and cleanliness in these areas:
- Keep a roll of paper towels on a handy dispenser near each sink. This will make it easier for anyone in the household to wipe toothpaste spatters off the medicine cabinet mirror or mop up mishaps on kitchen counters.
You’ll also never need to think about putting out guest towels for unexpected visitors. (Just remember to put a wastebasket in an easy-to-access spot. You don’t want a paper towel ending up in the toilet.)
- If you prefer not to use paper towels, another option is to install a towel ring for hanging a designated cleanup towel near sinks. Or consider an old-fashioned but still excellent towel-grabber. Even easier,
use an over-the-cabinet-door towel holder requiring no installation.
- A container of pre-moistened cleaning wipes is also helpful to have on hand in both kitchen and bathroom. A more economical alternative is Windex Touch-ups.
By taking a few seconds to clean up any areas right after they’ve been splashed or splattered, or at least at the end of each day, the need to ever do a major clean-up job is almost eliminated.
