Getting chores done with small kids in the house can sometimes be challenging. Maybe that’s an understatement at times. Still, things need to get done eventually. So, in the spirit of simplification, I’m always looking for ways to be more efficient. Today, I want to share with you a simple secret for getting the bathroom cleaned on a regular basis.My secret: clean the bathroom while the kids are in the tub.
All kids need to be bathed at some point or another. I am on an every-other-day schedule for bathing my kids (on a good week!). I alternate between activities during the time in which they are playing: cleaning the rest of the room or lifting weights. They like to play in the tub so why not be productive during that time?
Of course, your kids have to be old enough to sit up and not have you watching them constantly. I do have the advantage of having a long mirror over my counter top in which I can watch them while I clean.
This has helped me stay on top of maintaining a regular cleaning routine of the bathroom while maximizing my time.
