Keeping the home: three of five

Part Three: Step-by-Step-Overhaul–Room #1 The Bathroom

Let’s start with the bathroom. Please remember: this is not for the weary, the weak, or the wobbly! This is written for the wonder-women who want to dig in and dig deep…it is geared for the ladies who have not learned good habits (or followed them) and who are interested in making changes so that housekeeping is not longer overwhelming, but simply a matter of upkeep!

The bathroom is likely one of the smallest rooms in the house and should be less overwhelming to “overhaul.” Your bathroom may not require an “overhaul,” however to show detail, I will write from that perspective.

Deep Cleaning: As with each room we will discuss, the bathroom will be cleaned from top to bottom and organized in every nook and cranny. This kind of cleaning and organization may seem foreign to some, but will benefit your home for years to come, provided, of course that you spend a few minutes each day putting things in their place.

Remember, you will need an initial investment of time and effort in order to get to the maintenance stage. This is a beginning, this is not weekly cleaning. Once you have cleaned a room this way, it will require little effort to keep it in order, providing you have trained yourself and your family well.
