Getting your kids to clean up is a chore all by itself, but getting them to enjoy it might qualify for miracle status.
Still, when you consider how much of the mess they’re responsible in one or more of your bathrooms, isn’t it worth the effort? Sure it is, and here are a few helpful tips on how to get them into a bathroom cleaning groove:
The squeegee: Introducing your kids to a squeegee is simply the best. They love the sound it makes, they love how quickly it works, and they love pretending to be window washers! Spray down the shower walls and the mirror, and let the kids go to town!
Change the towels: Changing the way you hang your towels will make things much easier on everyone. Instead of folding towels or getting them just so on a towel rack, use hooks instead. You can also roll towels up. These look neat and are much easier for kids than traditional folding.
Shaving cream: Shaving cream rubbed onto a mirror is not only a complete joy to play in, make shapes, faces, and write your name, but it keeps mirrors from fogging up. So lather up and, at worst, you’ll have the kids out of the way while you tackle other chores.
Flush it away: Take away the toilet scrub brush, and you have one less weapon for your kids to dangle and shake all over the house. Instead of brushing your toilet clean, switch to toilet tank tablets. The bowel stays clean, smells nice, and the kids will marvel at the blue water for months!
Get them a basket: A cleaning basket or bucket that they can decorate, put their name on, and call their own gets them better focused on using what’s inside. Start by getting a basket for each child. Help them paint it, adhere stickers, or affix glitter. Next, fill the bucket with what they need to accomplish their individual chores. A sponge, small squeegee, spray bottle, and mini garbage bags, perhaps. You can get all these items from the dollar store, and they will be happy to spray, wash, and wipe that bathroom clean.
