When company comes, it's a good idea to pay a little attention to our bathrooms. Now, I'm not one who has their's all fancied up with lace curtains and potporui and magazine racks, who has matching towels and painted cupboards. No, if you come to our house that's not my bathroom....you must've taken a wrong turn somewhere!
But, even if you don't have a designer home, there ARE a few things you can do to make your bathroom a nicer place in a jiffy:
- Re-load the toilet paper holder (bonus - have an extra roll available in a handy place)
- Change the garbage out
- Make sure there is a clean towel to dry hands on
- Wash the sink/counter
One more thing I've noticed, if kids are coming over, is to leave the bathroom light on. We don't have windows in our bathroom, and it get's pretty dark and forboding at night when the hallway is dark. I've had much more success convincing a little kid to "try" if the light was on and they had a chance to "scope it out" (i.e. peek in while no-one was looking) first! :) I know this might be an electricity issue...but personally, I can deal with that more than other things ;) if it's only for a short time.
