Give it a thorough cleaning
If spring cleaning was the last time you gave your bathroom a complete cleanup, now’s the perfect time to do it again for the summer for a few reasons:
- It’s easier to clean it properly before school’s out and summer guests (if you have any) arrive
- It’ll take less time than doing it a month from now
- You probably won’t want to do it (unless you must) during the great sunny weather
One part of your bathroom which could use extra attention is the showerhead. In order to make it sparkle all summer long, remove the unit from the shower and soak it overnight in white vinegar.
That will get rid of any grime or dirt that’s accumulated. You can also use white vinegar on your shower door too.
Convert that old tub into a new shower
During summer, most people prefer to take showers than baths.
If you have an old bathtub which never gets used (and won’t get used in the summer), convert it into a brand new shower.
There are a few benefits to doing this:
- It gives your home extra bathing space
- It’s environmentally friendly (because less water is used in a shower vs. filling a bathtub)
- It modernizes and adds value to your home
Opting for tub-to-shower conversion also saves time. When the main bathroom and shower are unavailable, you can hop into your secondary shower and get clean in no time.
Stock it up for the summer
Grocery stores and bulk shopping stores tend to be crazy during the summer.
However with smart planning and shopping, you can affordably stock up your bathroom with everything it needs for the summer:
- Toilet paper
- Skin care products
- Cleaning products
Not to mention other essentials like towels and mats.
That way, each time you make a summer grocery run, you won’t have to worry about picking up bathroom items because you’ve already taken care of it.

Organize your storage space
The two main storage areas in any bathroom are the medicine cabinet and under the sink.
Because summer tends to be busy, you won’t have time to rummage through both areas (and others, if your bathroom has them) looking for stuff.
Take some time now to go through your storage space. Items which will definitely get used, place at the front.
Items less likely to be used can move to the back.
And things which won’t be used at all during the summer (like say, a hot water bottle) can be removed from the bathroom altogether and placed with your winter items.
