How to make your bathroom kid-friendly

Making your bathroom kid-friendly is a worthwhile pursuit. It'll help you save money in the long run and help your kids be safe. Your kids will be more comfortable and be more efficient as you follow these tips to make your bathroom kid-friendly:

No kid gets stranded: One of the worst feelings in the world is to run out of toilet paper while taking care of business on the porcelain throne. Keep an extra roll of toilet paper in reach of your kid near the toilet. This doesn't mean you let your kid go crazy with the toilet paper. Teach your kid use only what your kid needs.

Stay on top of towel laundry: Wash your bath towels after three days of use. Doing so will prevent the growth of mold and mildew. Staying on top of towel laundry will also prevent any unwanted odors. Your kids will be protected from gross bacteria. If you don't know how to wash towels to make them last longer, here's how to do it.

Non-bathroom electronics rules: Rules to keep non-bathroom electronics out will save you money both in the short term and in the long run. No one wants to have to replace tablets and smartphones that have fallen in the bath tub or toilet bowl. It's costly and depressing. If you can, keep a bin outside of the bathroom door specifically for non-bathroom electronics. It'll help your kids stay accountable and also let you know whether or not your kids took their personal electronics in the bathroom without needing to open the door.

Shower timer: Routine activities such as showers shouldn't take a lot of time. Using a shower timer is especially helpful if you only have one full bathroom in your home. It'll help your kids be more aware of how much time they're spending in the shower. If you need to, incentivize your kids when they are finished with their shower before the timer goes off. Rewards can often get the job done.
