Most people leave the bathroom as the last room in the house to pack. It is amazing just how much stuff is crammed into the small space, and you may not even realize how much is even there until you look at your pile of moving boxes. Some leave it till the end simply because it is a pain to deal with all the items that can leak or explode. This bathroom packing guide should help.
All medicine should be packed first in a clear bin or plastic bag. You want to be able to quickly identify it, if you need it. Anything you do not need can go with the rest of the bathroom stuff, but prescription medications should be packed in your essentials box. You may want to keep pain relievers and vitamins with you, as well.
One of the most important packing tips for your bathroom is to pack cleaning supplies in a separate box. Make sure they are clearly labeled. If you have not already had the chance to clean in your new place you will want to do this first before you start unpacking.
Use Saran Wrap
Although it will take a few extra minutes it is strongly recommended to open all bottles of shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap, bubble bath, and any other item that can leak, and put Saran Wrap over the top. Then, put the lid back on. This will stop liquids from leaking and causing a huge mess.
If you are taking your shower rack with you or taking art off the walls, you do not want to leave holes there or you won’t get back your full security deposit back. One of the most helpful moving hacks you can put to good use is to simply fill these holes in by rubbing a bar of white soap over there.
Keep Out Essentials
Before you put everything in moving boxes you should keep out the essentials you will need to get you through the first 24 hours, and put these items in your carry-on bag. This includes your shower curtain! This way you will not be forced to dig through boxes when you want to shower and relax.
