Every Thanksgiving for the past few years, I have been hosting my family's Thanksgiving dinner. Fall-time and cooking & baking happen to be a few of my favorite things, so hosting this family dinner each November is something I always start to look forward to as soon as the days start to become cooler and the leaves start to change and fall. Typically, I enlist the family in a big group house cleaning the day before Thanksgiving. We vacuum, dust, sweep & mop, and get the house sparkling and ready to host dinner guests. But the one room that never seems to stay clean- even a day later- is the bathroom. It is the one room in the house that gets used often and by everyone in the house. And then factor in that everyone uses that room to get showered and ready before dinner, and the bathroom ends up looking like it wasn't cleaned or straightened up at all the day before.

Since I am usually very busy in the kitchen most of Thanksgiving morning, I have come up with a super quick and easy last minute cleaning routine that will have your bathroom guest ready in just 10 minutes. It is so simple to do that you could certainly delegate it off to one of the older kiddos or the husband. ;) This is also a great little cleaning routine to have on hand when unexpected guests stop by...

1. Clear the counter clutter! Nothing makes a room look more put together and clean than eliminating the clutter. Just grab a plastic tub or basket, fill it with the hair care products, toothpaste, contact solution, and whatever else is taking up space on your bathroom counter, and stash it under your sink or in a linen closet until after your guests have left.

2. Grab your Pledge® Multi-Surface Cleaner, and spray & wipe down everything! I use this multi-surface cleaner on the bathroom mirror, the wooden shelves, and the window sill in my bathroom. Everything is wiped down and sparkling in no time at all.
3. Clean and disinfect the bathroom counter and toilet in a flash with Scrubbing Bubbles® Bathroom Cleaner. Simply spray down the counter, toilet seat, and the top of the toilet and wipe down. Pay a little extra attention to the fixtures and make them sparkle.
4. Empty the trash can, and set out a few extra rolls of toilet paper so guests can find a new one easily if they need one.

5. Make the bathroom smell fall yummy with a scented warmer- I love apple cinnamon wax melts this time of year. Just plug it in & turn on, drop in a wax melt, and you are good to go for the rest of the day! :)

5. And if you happen to have an extra 5 minutes to spare, add these finishing touches...
  • Shake the bathroom rugs out into the bathtub and rinse whatever shakes out down the drain.
  • Set out magazines for guests to read and enjoy.
  • Add a few fall touches to your bathroom counter. Like a pumpkin, some fall leaves, or a festive fall cloth or towels. 
What is your number one tip for getting your bathroom guest ready quick for the holidays?
