• Spring Cleaning: Bathroom edition 

    When I was young growing up in Zambia my mum and aunties used to tell me that people determine the cleanliness of your home based on the state of your bathroom (mostly the toilet) and though I will not claim to have the cleanest and prettiest bathroom I do like to keep it clean and tidy. Currently it’s easy to clean my bathroom since I live in an apartment which is not the biggest but sizable enough for yours truly.

    Spring Cleaning

    It is hypothesized that in our entire lifetime we spend just over 2 years worth of our time in the bathroom  as a place where we can relax and let go on the worldly troubles. Since we spend that much time in our bathrooms it makes sense to ensure it is clean, welcoming and a place where we can relax in. Today I thought I share with you some of my spring cleaning ideas for the bathroom.

    Change your bath towels and floor mats 

    My bathroom flooring is tiles which we all know can get quite cold during the winter months so I always ensure to have the thickest bath mats outside my shower cubicle to step on after a lovely shower. I also make sure during winter I have my heaviest bath towels to wrap up warm with after showering because for some reason between my cubicle and the towel rail it feels like a mile long and I always freeze so I like wrapping up warm. During spring and summer is important for me to change-up my floor mats because I want to feel the cool and cold floor when it gets super warm so I have the thinnest mats. I always change my bath towels too to lighter ones as I don’t want to start sweating right after showering.

    Change your body cream and lotion 

    This is not necessary for most but I try to use body cream and lotions that will keep my skin moisturized and heavier during the winter months. During winter my skin dries up pretty quickly so I use products that present that and during spring and winter I want products which are light, moisturizing, hydrating and not too oily.

    Scrub that tub or shower cubicle 

    I have a shower cubicle which I would love to claim I scrub every day after I shower but that’s not the case. I scrub maybe once or twice a month, don’t get me wrong I rinse it daily but I never sit down on my knees and give it a good scrub everyday I do that once it twice a month or if I am having visitors (😬🙈). To get your bathroom ready for spring, give it a good scrub, a good rinse and you’re good to go.

    These are some of the ways I am getting my bathroom read for spring.

    What are some of yours?

      These are great tips. I also like to have a good sort out of all my toiletries and make up. I love getting new towels to x

      • April 5, 2016 / 4:39 pm

        Yes toiletries too

      Great tips! I especially like the idea of changing moisturiser – my skin gets pretty dry in the winter so I use quite a heavy moisturiser but you’re right, a lighter one would be better as it gets warmer. Giving the shower a good scrub is on my latest to do list 🙂 It always looks much nicer when it’s gleaming.

      • April 5, 2016 / 1:07 pm

        It sure does look nice when clean and yes I love changing up my moisturisers

      I really need to up my spring cleaning game – I have a tonne of decluttering and stuff to do, just no idea when to do it!! H x

      • April 5, 2016 / 12:15 pm

        When you have 5 minutes you can declutter one box or start on one area

      Its all about the accessories for me! I love hand creams and white fluffy towels. I do not have hand creams or white fluffy towels, but one can dream of a fantasy bathroom that looks like something from a 5* hotel 🙂

      • April 5, 2016 / 12:14 pm

        Hahaha one can dream indeed, I have some fluffy towels and love them

    7. April 4, 2016 / 3:31 pm

      I can’t wait to decorate my new bathroom and its strange because I really do enjoy spring cleaning. Is that weird lol?

      • April 4, 2016 / 3:45 pm

        No not weird at all, some enjoy it others don’t lol

    8. April 4, 2016 / 11:18 am

      I lov getting out the shower into a lovely warm towel, but then I am pretty much always cold!! I use a daily shower spray in between cleaning it twice a week. I like a clean shower x

      • April 4, 2016 / 12:21 pm

        I love a clean show too so I try to rinse it done after every shower but never scrub it properly lol

    9. April 4, 2016 / 10:47 am

      I absolutely love new bath towels! Nothing better than a huge snuggly fluffy towel to snuggle up in – I don’t have separate towels for spring / summer but maybe I should try it!

      • April 4, 2016 / 12:20 pm

        Bath towels are the boom I just love changing them up

    10. April 4, 2016 / 10:04 am

      Your mum and mine are the same! She did tell me this too, especially when I got my first apartment 🙂 And I agree with her 🙂 When it comes to bathrooms, I’m really a bit OCD when cleaning it. x

      • April 4, 2016 / 10:45 am

        Hahaha glad to hear that at that time I thought my mum and aunties were cucook lol

    11. April 4, 2016 / 8:53 am

      There’s nothing better than proper snuggly fluffy towels after a shower – we have a heated towel rail in our bathroom for the first time in 4 years and it’s bliss this winter.

      • April 4, 2016 / 9:10 am

        I know right, I love me some snuggly towels
