When I go into my master or guest bath I have a normal expectation that everything I need to manage and use that space is in there.
From the products I use for personal hygiene to the products I need to clean the bathrooms, I need it all to fit into that space.
It’s especially challenging to get what you need in there without making it feel cluttered. While it’s a challenge, it’s definitely possible.
Today I’m going to show you three things you should keep stocked in your bathroom and ways to group, display and store those them. At the very end of this post, I’ll show you a fun way to personalize a bath tissue basket.
Hand soap and Air Freshener.
You should keep at least one extra bottle of each of these somewhere in your bathroom. Hand soap is a necessity and so is air freshener when guests are over. Everyone needs to wash their hands before meals and after using the restroom. It can be awkward if you have guests and don’t have them out and available. By using small containers, you can easily keep a few extra hand soaps and air fresheners at arms reach.
Feminine Hygiene Items
I like to keep these in a small plastic container in the vanity drawer. It’s small enough to set on the counter when guest are over and stays nice and neat for when I need them.
Extra Bath Soap and Linen
A simple way to display them neatly is in large glass jars. These jars are for pillar candles but work perfectly to store fresh linen, loofahs and soap for yourself or guests.
My husband likes to keep our bathroom stocked with Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch. We keep three or four rolls in the bathroom and a Mega Pack or two in our store room. In our master bath, I keep bathe tissue in a woven basket, but in the guest bath, I use a tasseled bath tissue basket to pile them in. The Mega packs have 9 rolls that are 4x’s bigger than the regular rolls. These big packs help ensure I always have extra bath tissue around for guests.
DIY Tasseled Bath Tissue Basket
What You’ll Need
- Wire Waste Basket
- Bling on a Rope
- Hot Glue
- Hot Glue Gun
1. I begin by wrapping yarn around a piece of cardboard until I achieved the thickness I want.
2. Then using a length of yarn longer than my tassel, I threaded it through the tassel horizontally and tie off the top. This will be what I’ll use to hang my tassel from my bathroom tissue storage basket. After tying to top, I cut the bottom of the tassel.
5. Next, I use another piece of yarn and wrap it vertically around the top about and inch below where I threaded my first piece through. I wrap it around about two times, then knot it. Take the remaining length of yarn and smooth it into your tassel.
You can find Quilted Northern on the paper products aisle at Walmart.
