As a work from home mom, the pandemic has brought me opportunities to survey home concerns. I have the luxury of staying at home and focus my energy on home improvements that will make staying at home pretty relaxing for the entire family, especially that my husband is also working from home and the teens are into online schooling.  By relaxing, I mean… organized and clutter-free. 


I decided to start organizing the bathroom.  It is definitely on of the rooms in the house that is frequently used. As a DIY enthusiast, I browsed the internet for projects that are simple to start and using recycled things. My target first project in the bathroom – storing my bath towels.


A mommy friendly reminder though – find a good place to store your bath towels. Bathrooms are not the place places for it because they are damp and can breed mildew and other harmful organisms. It is advisable to store your bath towels in a dry area or airy shelves, in your bedroom or walls farthest from the shower area.  Fold them well or roll them after washing and drying.

Do you have native baskets lying around the house? You can use it as a towel storage. You can put it on top of your sink to store hand towels. Or a bigger one can store your rolled-up bath towels. A good source of these native baskets are the stalls in Quiapo or Dapitan Arcade.

As a blogger, I get to receive packages in pallet boxes. Over time, it accumulated in numbers. I recycled them to store bath towels in the master’s bathroom.  It can give your space a rustic, shabby chic vibe. You can opt to paint it to add color into your space.

If you have a small bathroom, it is ideal to store towels using a repurposed ladder. It keeps your towels organized and you maximize vertical and wall space. It is even portable; you can move it anywhere in your bathroom.

Another great idea to create a vertical storage for your bath towels is to use a wine rack. As an added tip, choose a stainless-steel wine rack if you decide to use one in your bathroom. It is the safest to combat moisture and it will not rust!

When everything turns digital, I know a lot of mommies can identify, that magazine holders became obsolete. When you use your smartphones or tablets in reading articles and news, I am very sure, we already stopped buying magazines. What to do with those old magazine holders? You can use it to store your towels.  



Aside from being organized and clutter free in towel storage. I am also being mindful to practice minimalism. That would mean 2-3 bath towels per person in our household. We can live with 2 towels in summer, when we alternate usage and washing. But during rainy season, we need to have a spare one, if washed towels do not dry on time.


Maybe you are also wondering if it is about time to replace your bath towels. If you wash it frequently, chances are it becomes worn out or frayed on the edges. If they are not as absorbent as it used to be, you should replace them already. Old, worn out bath towels won’t dry you thoroughly and will be infested with unseen germs and bacteria. A big NO for OC mommies!  Experts advise, you should replace your bath towels every two years.
