The Fart of Tidying Up
If you didn’t know Marie Kondo before from her bestselling book, you absolutely know her now. Unless of course, you don’t have a Netflix account which would be understandable since they are increasing their prices… again. With her Netflix show, Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, Kondo is inspiring us, encouraging us... and shaming us into getting rid of our shit. As a huge fan of the movement, Team TUSHY is joining in the hype and giving you a few tips on tidying up one of the most neglected rooms in the house… your bathroom.
Take before bathroom selfie
As motivation, so document what your bathroom looks like now. See the chaos. Know the chaos. Own the chaos. Soon, it will be gone. Once your bathroom is beautiful and zen-like, occasionally revisit the picture to remind you of how you DON'T want your bathroom to look.
Does This Melded Soap Bar Mound Spark Joy?
If there is one thing to take away from the Konmari method, it’s questioning whether or not something sparks joy. The idea is to pick up every item in your bathroom. Hold it and see if it sparks joy. If it doesn’t, it goes in the toss pile. If it does, keep it. It lives to see another year. So yes, throw away that bottle of peppermint Dr. Bonners that your ex left at your apartment 3 years ago.
CLEAN UP YOUR SHIT
This may be the hardest part. Actually cleaning. Now that you’ve moved things that haven’t been touched in over a year, you may be scrubbing a lot of mold, mildew and soap scum. (barf) Now that you’ve puked, throw on some rubber gloves and let's get to scrubbin’.
All of the things in your “joy” pile need a clean place to live, which leads us to…
Give everything a home
Organization is key to a tidy bathroom. When you give everything a place, not only is it all less overwhelming and nicer looking but it makes everything so much easier to find.
Install Your TUSHY Bidet
Of all the things in your bathroom that sparks joy, TUSHY is the clear winner. Not that it’s a competition. When your booty is clean and your bathroom is organized, you feel relaxed and at ease knowing that you have a literal oasis waiting for you.
As for the rest of your house… we can’t help you there.
