From toothpaste on the mirrors to toilet paper unraveled and thrown on the floor, your kid’s bathroom may just be a disaster. Let’s face it – your child’s bathroom will likely never be as clean as you want it to be and the moment you finish cleaning it, it is completely destroyed.
Kids can be a lot of work and they also come with some messes too, which means you need to be prepared to tackle those messes head on to ensure you can keep your home as organized and clean as possible. Below, we will provide you with some ideas to help you get ahold of your child’s bathroom situation to ensure a clean and organized space.
Get a Bathroom Hamper
We cannot stress the importance of this enough – get a bathroom hamper. Yes, it is easy for you, an adult, to throw your clothes into the hamper in your room or laundry room but for kids, it is easier for them to leave the clothes on the floor in the bathroom. It is almost like an unwritten rule of being a kid.
Make the entire process easier for the both of you and place a hamper inside your child’s bathroom to ensure they put their dirty clothes inside of it.
Give Them a Labeled Hook
A labeled hook on the wall can help encourage your child to hang up their towel when they are done with it and not just toss it onto the floor. The label hooks can be done with your child’s first name initial and then placed on the wall. Not only will your children love the idea, but they will also feel special with their initial right there.
Don’t Ditch the Cleaning Supplies
Woah! Let’s talk about how easy it can be to place the cleaning supplies under the counter and either forget about them or lose them. Too easy!
You definitely want to make sure that you have cleaning supplies on hand at all times in your child’s bathroom. Their bathroom will need to be cleaned more often than yours, so it helps to have a small basket just for cleaning items under the sink.
If your children are old enough to help, they can use the products to clean the bathroom themselves.
Use Extra Space You Have
You have a lot of extra space within your bathroom that you may not have even known about. For example, you have the entire inside surface of the sink door to use and you have tons of wall space that could accommodate shelves.
Do take advantage of the space that you have and use it to the best of your ability. For example, you could hang shelves on the walls, or you could use a small organization holder over the bathroom sink cabinet door.
Organization is Key
Organization within your child’s bathroom and a cleaning schedule is key to making sure that it stays both clean and organized. If you feel that your child’s bathroom is just out of control, take a step back, and assess the situation to see where you think you can make it better and then tackle it one step at a time.
On a final note, make use of bins, containers, and even totes as they store easily and can hold many items within them.
