Well here we go! I have been meaning to do this since the new year, de-clutter and spring clean, and with the sun shinning this week it has really got me in the mood to fling open the windows and let the fresh air in and blow away the winter cobwebs. so lets get started.
This week I am going to focus on de-cluttering the home first, who wants to clean stuff you don't really want amy more, so its out with the old and in with the clean and fresh. So lets get started, are you with me?
I'm starting with the bathroom, its the smallest room in the house so should get quick results, Oh and please feel free to add you own tips in the comment section at the bottom of this post.
1. Clear out shelves and cupboards
Get rid of all those creams lotions and potions that you know you're never going to use, or anything that is past its shelf life. Creams and cosmetic's have a little pot sign on them and a number which indicates their shelf life.
Any medicines you have in the bathroom that you know longer need or use, put in a separate bag, take these down to you local chemist who can dispose of them appropriately. Please don't throw medication or over the counter remedies in the bin.
2. Towels and bath mats.
Go through you bath and hand towels, ones that are no longer fluffy and soft no longer belong in the bath room, simple as! Bath time should be pleasurable, and drying your self off with a thread bare and holly towel dose not make it so. you can use old bath towels as rags for dirty jobs around the house.
3. Bathroom trinkets, treasures and toys.
I'm talking smelly soaps, beach shells and stones, and children's bath toys. Get rid of anything that is dusty watter logged and falling apart, or no longer smells as it should do! Children's bath toys such as ducks tend to get filled with old stale bath water, if you can't clean them throw them out. Go through the rest of the toys weeding out anything that is just past its best.
Plants get dusty in the bathroom and because of the steam, leaves can get clogged up, give them a treat and stand in the shower for a little shower off. It really perks the leaves up. Clean off the leaves with a bit of damp cotton wool.
5. Reward Yourself.
Treat yourself to some new bathroom towels, then this evening reward yourself with a lovely bubble bath soak.! Job done.
