If you are preparing to host guests in your home, try these seven tips to get your bathroom well-prepared!
Clean the bathroom consistently
The best way to make sure your guest bathroom always looks guest-ready is by cleaning it consistently. Apartment Therapyrecommends deep-cleaning the bathroom at least once a month. For daily maintenance, scrub the inside of the toilet and wipe down the toilet’s exterior, the mirror, and the sink. If you use a shower curtain, keep it closed to prevent mildew growth. Finally, empty your trash can regularly.

Aside from trash, if you keep any of your personal items in the guest bathroom, make sure to clear them out before the visitors arrive. Also, discard empty bottles or expired toiletries. As for items that can still be used, store them neatly.
Give your guests a hotel- or spa-like experience by storing clean, soft, and fresh towels in your bathroom. HGTV suggests splurging on thick cotton bath towels, washcloths, and hand towels that will make your visitors feel like VIPs.
