How to Prepare Your Bathroom for Holiday Guests 101

Ah, there’s nothing like the holiday season! From twinkling lights to delicious desserts, it is indeed the most wonderful time of the year — until you realize that guests are arriving in a few hours and your bathroom is disheveled. Don’t panic, though, because here are some tips to get the most popular room in your home in tip-top shape!

Make it Sparkle

Have you been putting off cleaning your bathroom this past week? If that’s the case, then it’s essential to begin scrubbing! Indeed, you don’t have to go overboard in terms of your cleaning routine — but if your guests are staying for a few days, then you should clean the following:

  • Toilet

  • Sink

  • Countertop

  • Shower/Tub

Although there are other features in your bathroom to clean, it’s essential to get these focal points spotless since they will be used the most.

Stock it Up

Once your lavatory looks as clean as winter snow, it’s time to roll out some toiletry items. Of course, you don’t have to purchase high-end products (unless you feel inclined), but travel-sized goods will do just the trick. To really hone in on the perfect items to purchase, you’ll want to think about whether your guests flew or drove to your home.

If they took a plane, then chances are they couldn’t bring many liquid-based items with them. The solution? Visit your local dollar store and purchase some necessities to make a guest bathroom basket. This way, they’ll feel more comfortable and independent in your home, rather than asking you for every little thing.

Linens Are Important

Are you afraid that you’ll run low on towels when your guests are over? If that’s the case, then it’s best to purchase some hand and body towels at your local home goods store. Of course, you’ll want to make sure that these towels match your current bathroom decor just so you can use them all year long!
