Busiest Moms in the World Spring Clean Challenge Day 25
We are hanging out in the bathroom today!
The Medicine Cabinet
There are days when I wonder why medicine cabinets even exist. Before I was a parent I thought they were built in high to keep children from getting into the actual medicine. I learned that this was not true very quickly when my oldest, at around 20 months, climbed quite rapidly into the shelves above the dishwasher in my first apartment . So, the medicine cabinet would have taken all of two seconds to breech, which scared me silly.
I threw out all the medicine that I did not need that day, as well as oven cleaners and anything with bleach. This was before non-toxic cleaners were so popular. I used dish washing liquid for cleaning everything for at least two years excluding windows which I ignored. I locked what few medicines I needed in a safe and put the safe on the top shelf in my bedroom closet. I was a young mom living 2,000 miles away from my own momma, so I pretty much had to learn all things parenting from common sense and an occasional phone-call home when I was desperate.
But, as much as it baffles me that even Jack and Jill bathrooms have medicine cabinets, they still need to be cleaned.
How does a closed door get dusty? Baffling
How do expensive hair products end up in teenagers’ bathrooms? Not so baffling
Enough of this chatter, Let’s get to it:
- Clutter bust all the old medicine and cosmetics. This means throw them away.
- Clean the shelves with an all purpose cleaner of your choice.
- Buff dry with a clean towel.
- Replace items in a logical order. I like to group like items together.
- Make sure all medicines and other harmful items are locked away from children.
- Clean the mirror on the outside of the medicine cabinet.
Do this routine in all the bathrooms and when you are finished do a little momma happy dance. Why? Because moms rock!
