July Habit #30 Guest Bath Of Shame

Dear FlyLady,

My husband is an invalid with numerous health issues that call him to his bathroom frequently.

In the past, I have only cleaned this when I knew company was coming, and then with martyred clenched teeth and a gallon of bleach!

I have been very embarrassed if anyone stopped by and needed to use it. Sometimes, I purposely refrained from offering beverages to guests ( a Southern requirement if hospitality) just so their bladders wouldn’t get full enough to visit our guest bath of shame!

Last week I started swishing this toilet every day and realized it was easier done in daily baby steps. I didn’t have burned, bleachy nostrils and an angry attitude.

It was so nice that I wanted to do something extra special for my husband’s bathroom, so I ordered the dishtowels. I put a fresh one in the bathroom each morning after I swish and swipe.

Some of my husband’s health issues cause him mental confusion and he has trouble keeping up with which day it is. Now his clean bathroom is a reminder if each day as well as my love for him.

Best wishes from sunny Crestview,
