A spotless T&B is every homeowner’s dream. With toiletries in place, sparkling tiles, and a refreshing scent that calms the senses, a clean and organized bathroom seems to invite you to stay and relax longer. However, much as we hate to admit it, we often cut corners when it comes to keeping it spic-and-span. How many times have you stuffed essentials inside drawers and cabinets? Is the space under your sink free from overflowing bins and hampers? To ease your mind and help you achieve a hundred percent neat space, we discovered a trick that can help you organize the smallest and biggest of T&Bs in a few minutes or less.


The secret? Separating the items you use on a daily basis from the essentials you only need weekly or monthly. Kristen Ziegler of Minima, a company that helps people declutter and organize, shares a 15-minute hack below:

1. Empty your bathroom drawer or cabinet. Check the essentials you own and discard the expired items or products you no longer use. 


Once these are out of the way, group the remaining products into two piles: items you use on a daily basis and those you don’t use frequently.

2. Keep the products you use daily inside a drawer near the sink or in your medicine cabinet. Since you use these all the time, these items should be within your reach.


Keep clutter at bay by organizing the products by use (for your hair, eyes, lips, etc.). Invest in tiny drawer organizers so you have a compartment for each.

3. Extra toiletries or items you don’t need every day can be kept in plastic bins under your sink. To help you get what you need easily, you can also group these items per use.
