Guest Bathroom Preparation


Assemble a basket of amenities guests may have forgotten to bring with them

Who doesn’t appreciate a clean bathroom?

Personally, I will drive 15 miles out of my way on a road trip just so I can use the crystal clean bathrooms at Buc-ee’s. I really never thought I would say that about any public place, better yet a convenience station. It also doesn’t hurt that they have a huge selection of flavored beef jerky, gifts for everyone on your list and a fudge station. It truly is an experience and I love it!

But enough about Buc-ee’s (for now at least). Providing a clean bathroom for your guests is essential to the overall experience of their visit. Here are a few ways to prepare the guest bathroom for visitors.

Place a dirty clothes bin in the guest bathroom

Place a basket in the bathroom with little amenities your guests may have forgotten to pack, such as cotton swabs, toothpaste, a toothbrush, hairspray, ibuprofen and more. Even the most organized travelers will forget something. Stock shower with shampoo, conditioner, soap and a razor.

Be sure to well stock bath towels, washcloths and hand towels. If space allows, provide a basket or bin for placing dirty towels or linens, which you can check regularly.

Use herbs like lavender to spruce up your home

How to Freshen Up your Bathroom Naturally

Use herbs like lavender & chamomile to freshen your home!

Step 1: Fill a spray bottle with 20 drops of lavender essential oil, 1 teaspoon vodka, and water to create a linen spray. Mist bed linens, lampshades, shower curtains, and drapes.

Step 2: Grind up lavender and chamomile with baking soda in a food processor to sprinkle on rugs and carpets to remove odor.

Step 3: Simply let that mixture sit on the carpet and rugs overnight and vacuum the next day.
