Bathroom time is a scarce resource in most families - especially if there are teenager girls in the family. When you do have your opportunity for bathroom time to get ready for bed or work, you may find that it is not as much as you like.
The best way to combat this problem is to make sure that you have a few bathroom organizer solutions to assist in fast morning and evening routines. Your solution may include a bathroom organizer caddy. Read on to find more ideas to help you with streamlining your daily bathroom grind.
Bathroom Organizer by Ridding of Your Tired Products
Even those who purge continuously, hold on to old products for too long. Toss out everything that looks or smells funny or that you know is too old to use. Most products have an expiry date after opening label, it's a number followed by the letter "M". This tells you how many months the item is good for after opening.
Overall, eye makeup is good for six months, foundation - one year and lipsticks two years, except for the preservative-free products that expire quicker than others.
Use the Sticker Approach
Keep track of how long you have had a product opened, by writing the month and year of when you first opened it on a little sticker or a piece of masking tape and tape it to the bottom of the bottle, tube or jar. In the future, if you notice that an item looks a little dicey, you can check with this date to see if it's past the expiration date or not.
Use Transparent Containers
Know when you are getting low on supplies by storing everyday essentials including cotton balls and swabs in clear containers. Repurpose glass jars for this need. Keep makeup brushes upright in a jar or tumbler to keep them from making a mess in drawers or your make up bag.
Shower Caddy Bathroom Organizer
Keep your shower floor clear by buying a shower caddy for shampoos and soaps. There is a wide variety of products available in many discount and department stores.
Install a magnetic strip on the inside door of your medicine cabinet for scissors, tweezers and nail clippers.
Expired & Unused Medication Disposal
Dispose of prescriptions by emptying liquids and grind pills and then mix with coffee grounds, put them in a plastic bag, sealing them tightly and then throw the bag in a garbage bin that has a tightly fitted lid and is out of reach of children and pets. Sealing in a plastic bag helps keeping from having the liquids from seeping into the underground water. Alternatively you can also put the mix into a lidded coffee can.
Storing Magazines & Towels
Keep reading materials in a decorative magazine rack. When you add new magazines, discard the older ones to prevent the magazine rack from overflowing.
If you are running out of space in your bathroom cabinets for towels, roll them up and display them in a pretty basket next to the bathtub or shower. On the back of your bathroom door or wall space, install hooks for robes or towels.
