Did you know that one of the most popular days to call a Plumber is on Thanksgiving? This year we are having two parties to celebrate, which means our drains will be working double duty. For me, I want to be enjoying my guests versus worrying about unclogging a drain. So, in honor of Liquid-Plumr’s Thankful To Be Clog Free campaign, I came up with the complete guest bathroom checklist for holiday preparation. This way, you can focus on your guests and not any messes.
Cleaning Checklist: The cleaner the bathroom, the more comfortable your guests (and you) are. Here is a quick checklist to make sure it is spotless upon the arrival of your guests.
- Wipe down the counters and fixtures.
- Thoroughly clean the toilet and have a plunger handy for your guests just in case!
- Wipe down any glass or mirrors and make sure they are streak free.
- Sweep and mop the floors.
- Be sure to check and unclog all the drains with Liquid Plumber. Run the water to make sure it is not slow draining.
- Empty the trashcans. Have an extra trash bag underneath the new one for easy changing.
- Hang fresh and clean bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths.
- Don’t forget to spot clean the walls and baseboards.
- Place clean and comfy bath mats on the floor by the sink, bathtub, and/or toilet.
Necessities: Traveling can be hectic. It’s easy to forget a few things while packing during the hustle and bustle. These are suggestions for extra necessities for your guests to have on hand for them in your bathroom.
- Make sure the toilet paper is stocked and easily accessible.
- Have the drawers stocked with extra toiletries like toothpaste, toothbrushes, mini shampoo and conditioner, and small bars of soap in case your guest forgot to pack them.
- Make sure the soap dispenser is filled.
- Display necessities like cotton balls, cotton swabs, and cotton pads.
- Keep a first aid kit under the sink or in a drawer.
- Have common medications like cold medicine, aspirin, acid reducer, sunscreen, and band aides in the medicine cabinet.
Bonus Ideas and Added Touches: Want to be the hostess with the mostess? These bonus ideas will get you there!
- Have hand or body lotion available.
- Have a couple water bottles handy for clean drinking water for the middle of the night.
- Have things your guests may not be able to take on a plane like nail clippers, tweezers, razors, and small scissors readily available in the bathroom drawer.
- Place a nice scented candle on the bathroom vanity.
Now that you have your checklist, you can focus on your friends and family this Thanksgiving.
