With the holiday season quickly approaching, family get togethers are going to start amping up! The downside? You will probably have little time to actually get ready for these get togethers! You’ll be busy buying gifts, making cookies, and making sure you have a great menu planned.

But getting your house ready for guests doesn’t have to take forever. The easiest and quickest room in the house is the powder room! It will get a lot of foot traffic during the holidays so you want to make sure it’s clean, inviting, and well-stocked. 

How to Get Your Powder Room Guest-Ready in 5 Minutes

how to get your powder room guest-ready in 5 minutes

Step 1: Wipe, Sweep, Empty, and Swish!

First, start by wiping down your counter tops, sweep the floor, empty the trash can, and swish out the toilet. If you do this every day or even every other day, your bathroom will always be clean!

Step 2: Dry Off!

Next, make sure you have hand towels (either everyday or decorative) for your guests to dry their hands. Keep an extra set under the sink in case you have a lot of people drying off their hands. You could even purchase “fancy” paper towels and put them in a basket on your sink.

Step 3: Soap Up!

Then you want to break out the “nice” soap. I have a stockpile of hand soaps that I stock up on during sales. Confession? I have scents to match the seasons! 

Step 4: Smelling Fresh

Keep the bathroom smelling fresh with a candle or a reed diffuser. Make sure the reed diffuser is filled with oil to keep the scent flowing. Also, to help your guests be discreet in the bathroom, keep a bottle of No-Poo Toilet Spray out! 

Step 5: Stock Up!

Finally, you want to make sure you have a lot of extra rolls of toilet paper, like Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch®, stocked! You will go through toilet paper a lot during the holidays.  The best bathroom experiences are the ones you don’t remember so make sure your guests never run out of toilet paper. You don’t want them to be stuck in the bathroom and miss your party!

I found this basket that is perfect to hide away the toilet paper! It fits two rolls and is always in reach when needed. 

Stock up on Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch® while you are shopping for your party at Walmart! Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® toilet paper has a unique construction that limits tissue ripping and separation. It is designed to be strong, flexible and soft for overall durable comfort.
