1. Have an Organised Washbag
Keeping a washbag full of all your essentials can make it easier for there to be less clutter in the bathroom and for you to have everything you need! Filling it with conditioner, shampoo and any skin essentials can make it quicker for you in the bathroom, and make sure that you always have a supply that you can keep in your room! This eliminates bathroom clutter and means that you can keep it in your room for when you need it!
2. Keep Your Bathroom Clean
No one wants a bathroom that you don’t enjoy showering in! If you set an example and leave the bathroom clean, then others will follow your example. If it helps then keep a cleaning rota of who has to clean the bathroom on different days, especially if you have a lot of flatmates! It will take little time but will make such a difference to yours and your flatmates lives if you enjoy where you are living!
3. Plan What Time of Day You Shower
You will all begin to make a schedule on when your flatmates shower, some may wake up early when others may leave it until the early hours of the morning! If you don’t want to make a rota then just keep a similar time of day that you want to shower, this means that others will get used to you having that time slot and you will have the bathroom free!
4. Keep What You Can in Your Room
This is an essential tip so you are not cluttering your bathroom with unneeded products, if you have bought a bathroom wash bag then you can keep the majority of your products in there and take it back into your room when you are not using it. This will stop your bathroom from getting messy and also stop your roommates from stealing all your products!
5. Keep Your Own Supplies
Keep stocked up on what you need! Make sure you have a supply of shampoo, conditioner and skin products so you don’t run out when you really need them. Keep organised and keep a constant supply and you will never have to go without!
