Nothing revives a tired traveler more than a good sleep and a shower. If you really want to make your guests feel welcome, spend a little time prepping your bathroom for their arrival. Providing a clean bathroom and fresh linens is key to keeping your guests happy. We've broken down the preparation process into three lists: a cleaning checklist to finish before your guests arrive, a list of necessities to stock, and a few optional extras if you want to go above and beyond the basics. CLEANING CHECKLIST • Wash all bath linens: towels, shower curtain, bathmat, etc. • Clean out the medicine cabinet (in case guests take a peek inside). • Wipe down the sink, tub, tile, and toilet with a bathroom cleaner. • Use a glass cleaner on mirrors, fixtures, and windows. • Empty the bathroom trashcan. • Sweep and mop the floors. NECESSITIES • Provide clean towels. Two sets of towels are usually enough for a few days. • Stock up on extra toilet paper. • Have a spare toothbrush ready in case your guest forgets theirs. • Let your guest know where the band-aids and first aid kit are located. NICE EXTRASFlowers in the bathroom are a welcoming detail. • To really make guests feel pampered, provide a guest robe and slippers. • Good soaps, hand creams, and bath salts add a sense of luxury. • Keep a basket of travel-sized shampoo and toiletries for guests to use. • Keep a scented candle with matches on a counter or shelf.
