Quick Tips for an Organized Shower
This week’s organizing focus is the SHOWER and/or BATHTUB. If you haven’t grabbed May’s FREE cleaning and organizing calendar yet, you can go here to grab it.
Your challenge this week is to quickly clear out any clutter from your shower(s) and bathtubs. If you only have time for one area, tackle the one that’s most used.
- Toss anything that is ‘just in there’ but you don’t use. Pare it down to just the essentials (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap…) and if there are items that you want to keep but use infrequently, look for a different place to store them.
- Put your most-used items in a waterproof basket or caddy to keep it organized and easy to access.
- Wipe down your shower or tub. I clean bathrooms on Mondays, so I will simply add this extra task to my routine for today. You can see my bathroom cleaning routine here.
- Put the ESSENTIALS back in your shower. Clutter can lead to a frazzled feeling – if your shower is the only place you are alone all day, make it a serene place!
My favorite recipe for bathroom cleaning? Lavender + Lemon Bathroom Disinfecting Spray.

We have been steadily reducing the amount of disposable plastic we use, and with that has come a much more simplified bathroom. It is great! We have two bars of soap in the shower, a shampoo bar, and an olive oil body soap, and that’s it! It’s nice not staring at the clutter of 10 different bottles.
I actually hate having things in my shower but I can’t seem to get the family on board. I have a space in the cabinet for scrubs and masques. My daughter noticed an odor in the upper shelf (I am 4’11” and she’s 5’10”) and I told her that it was water collecting around her random bobs and bits that I couldn’t reach to clean. She’s no longer doing that, at least. And my upper ledge got a nice disinfecting thanks to her tallness. I think I have Cassandra Syndrome. No one ever believes my warnings of grossness. XD
