Clean Up Bathroom Clutter

Keeping an organized bathroom is much easier when you’ve chosen specific storage locations for your bath products. Floating or open shelves add a modern touch over traditional cabinetry. Everyday items could be stored on them — including lotions, toothbrushes, shaving creams and towels. Over-the-toilet and corner shelves also make great use of empty wall space. However, if you choose to store items above the toilet, it’s best to get in the habit of keeping the toilet cover closed. This prevents toiletries from falling inside and minimizes contamination risks. For more ways to designate storage locations for items, see the accompanying infographic.

The accompanying infographic, The Organization Diet: Cut the Clutter & Improve Your Life, presents proven, practical tips will help you streamline your home. Give the “organization diet” a try.
