It seems that it’s a common theme among parents that if you have kids, chances are you have a messy bathroom. I don’t know what it is with kids and a bathroom, but in my house it appears to get messy about 3.2 seconds after I clean it. Maybe they are fighting with a toothpaste monster in there or something? Or maybe they all need better practice with aiming? No matter if you have boys or girls or what age they are, all kids seem to love making a mess anytime they use the bathroom! With three kids in my house fighting over one bathroom, these messes seem to multiply rather quickly, so I figured this would be a good time to work on some tips for keeping your bathroom fresh and clean WITH kids!
Clean a little everyday
As with most cleaning or household jobs, it’s easier if you get a little done each day. Be sure to keep some cleaning wipes under the sink and wipe down the counters at least once day as well as keeping some dryer sheets near by. They are perfect for grabbing dust and hair off of the floor with ease. Same goes for the mirrors- try to give them a once over too (especially after teeth brushing!) If you can do that everyday, your bathroom will feel so much cleaner!
Make your kids help
Whether your home is full of little kids who love bath time or tweens and teens who’ve suddenly started hogging the bathroom to get ready in the mornings, chances are, your kids are old enough to start helping out with cleaning the shower, tub, and counters. It can be as simple as putting toys away and hanging up towels – but the sooner you start teaching this, the better. Any age child can help wipe the counters down and pick up after themselves after bath time. Make sure you keep some kid friendly cleaning wipes easily accessible for them and teach them how to do it (so they don’t use 45 wipes at once!!) and give them a place to hang towels up or a basket for them if you don’t reuse them. Older kids can be taught to help clean out the tubs or do a simple mop on the floor too. My kids haven’t mastered the toilets yet, but hopefully they’ll get there soon!
Keep it fresher smelling, simpler
Keeping a kids bathroom clean is one thing, but keeping it smelling fresh is another! Candles aren’t an option with kids and sprays don’t last very long so what else is there? Thankfully I recently discovered something new and completely ingenuous that makes me wonder why this wasn’t a thing years ago! What is this amazing, life changing product? It’s scented toilet paper rolls!
New Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube helps to gently infuse your bathroom with a light scent that feels fresh and welcoming around the clock. Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube, has it’s scent on the tube, not on the paper, so it’s good for sensitive skin. Now you can have a product that you already know you need and allow it to do double duty! I love how light the scent is, not overpowering at all, and it’s very natural smelling too. Just like all Angel Soft® products, you know you are getting a quality toilet paper you want and the value you love, along with an added airy bonus. It is truly a great addition to your bathrooms to help keep them smelling fresher, longer.
Keep things organized
Keep your bathroom feeling cleaner longer by investing in some organizational items for under your sink. One for medicines, one for first aid, one for cleaners. If you keep as little as possible on your counters, it’ll keep this room feeling cleaner too. Also, it lessens the chance of things being sprayed with that toothpaste reside that kids seem to get everywhere!
Keep things off of the floor
Like with the counters, keeping things off of your floors in the bathroom will make it look and feel cleaner, as well as limit the amount of items that can potentially get “peed” on. Stash away any storage, towels and even the trash can under the sink if at all possible. This will also make it easier when you do have to clean since you won’t have as many things to move.
No one likes cleaning the bathroom, especially with kids! Thankfully with these simple steps, and the help of Angel Soft® with Fresh Lavender-Scented Tube, you’ll have a cleaner bathroom longer and it will be filled with a fresh, slight scent without needing sprays or lighting candles.
