When it comes to organizing and spring-cleaning a bathroom, I have to admit, this is the area that I personally dread the most. When I was pregnant with my second child all I had to do was walk into a bathroom and my stomach would turn! Sixteen years later I still dread cleaning and organizing the bathroom. Oh boy, hold my breath and here I go.
Underneath the sink
If you have a cupboard underneath the sink, now is a great time to empty out, sort and purge. Sort the medicine from the hair products from the…whatever else you have under there! Make sure to pay attention to the expiry dates as well as the directions on disposing of the items. Some items may require special care and attention to dispose of. Also, pay close attention to how many extra items you have. Be conscious of what you have and how many items you have ( that means stop shopping for items you have multiples of). Give this cupboard a good wipe out (and feel free to vacuum out if need be).
Not Just For The Kitchen
A great way to help with the organizing parts of your bathroom is to use a Lazy Susan.
Towels and bed sheets can add up over the years. This is a great time to go through and purge what you use and what you don’t. Our local pet shelter (The Calgary Humane Society) will take used towels and bedding (no fitted sheets). Whether you fold or roll your towels, only keep the ones you need and the ones you use.

How To Store Bed Sheets
Baskets are a great way to containerize. And by containerize, I mean keep what fits in the container and get rid of the excess! When you have a container, there is only so much you can put in. That’s one of the purposes of using a basket. The other is to control the amount you have. When the basket is full, the basket is full. Using baskets also allow your bathroom to look neat and tidy!

I came across a couple of great checklist for spring cleaning your bathroom that pretty much covers everything.
The good news, a good bathroom spring clean/organize shouldn’t take too long. The GREAT news? Once it’s done, you’re going to love it! You’ll be able to draw yourself a bath, relax, and enjoy all your hard work! I know I’d spend the day in this one!
