I’ve been on a big lavender kick these days. You ever do that? Get hooked on a particular smell? Even now, I can smell my lavender essential oils diffusing across the house, and I LOVE it! What if everything around this house could smell so good? Even the bathrooms! A girl can dream, right?!
I mean, I do the best I can, but it’s no secret that cleaning the bathroom isn’t my favorite task. That’s okay – I’ve found something that makes it much easier to clean my least-favorite-to-clean area of my home, and it’s name is Mrs. Meyers!
In fact, one of my favorite things to do is scrub down my bathroom sinks with Mrs. Meyer’s Tub & Tile (the lavender scent, of course!) and then wash my hands with the Mrs. Meyer’s Hand Soap in lavender, as well! These products have really made me WANT to clean our bathrooms, if you can believe that. And there’s a few other ways I can talk myself into cleaning the bathrooms:
Make it a game: Cleaning the bathroom always feels like it takes forever, but you’d be surprised how little time tasks actually take. I like to set a timer like my mom used to do and see how quickly I can complete each task. For example, it only takes one minute to wipe down the counters and sink — and makes a huge difference in how clean our bathroom feels. Who knew?
Buy cleaners that smell fantastic: Nice smelling cleaners go a long way toward making the bathroom cleaning experience more pleasant. I actually look forward to using this Mrs. Meyer’s tub & tile cleaner — it cleans effortlessly and smells so fresh! I’m using the lavendar scent right now (surprise surprise), but I’m looking forward to trying the lemon verbena next time around. The best part is there are no harsh fumes, so I don’t have to hold my breath while I’m scrubbing the bathtub.
Squeeze in a workout: We all know there aren’t enough hours in the day. So why not combine a few of tasks on your to-do list? Even though the bathroom is a small space, you can really work up a sweat. I like to see how many steps I get while carrying towels to the laundry room and taking out the trash. Plus, I do a few squats and lunges while I’m washing the floors and tub.
Clean while you’re in the shower: I love hot showers and could spend all day in there. So while I’m enjoying the water, I give the shower walls and glass a quick scrub down to keep them shiny. It makes cleaning the bathroom a lot less painful (and is a pretty productive use of water!). I stash my Mrs. Meyer’s tub & tile and Grove Collaborative scrubber sponge on the ledge in my shower as a reminder. The Grove sponges are perfect because the non-abrasive scouring side gets into the grout while the soft side gets the glass squeaky clean.
Listen to an audiobook: Playlists are a great way to pump yourself up when you’re cleaning. But lately I’ve discovered that listening to audiobooks while I’m cleaning is a great way to catch up on reading that I wouldn’t otherwise have time for. I usually get so engrossed in my page-turner that the time flies by.
Treat yourself: Beautiful soaps, hand lotion, or a bouquet of flowers are a nice reward for all your hard work. These Mrs. Meyer’s soaps and lotions are a super luxurious treat — no artificial scents here, just essential oils!
