Storage-Packed Small Bathroom MakeoverTraditional Bathroom, Charlotte
Smart bathroom planning keeps necessities handy -- and out of the way. An organizer on the closet door and tiled shower niches make use of often unused space. Keep towels and toiletries within reach with a pullout drawer and a double-bin organizer.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Hotel samples and extra shower supplies. Group mini soaps and shower gels, shampoos and conditioners into the right organizer. This can be a spice rack attached to a cabinet door, an over-the-door travel bag or an over-the-door shoe organizer. Give each type of product its own compartment and label it. Instead of having backup supplies hogging valuable space, you’ll have products to tide you over from the time you run out to the time you make it to the store. And if you tend to hoard these like I do, you’ll find you can live off samples for a surprising amount of time, which is a nice little money saver. Note: Mounting a rack like this inside a cabinet or closet door is a nice choice; just make sure there’s ample room between the shelves and the rack so the door can close properly.
How to get water-based paint out of clothes. You likely have what you need in your bathroom cabinet to remove water-based paint stains from clothing. I’ve had good results using 91 percent isopropyl alcohol to rid fabric of latex paint. The first step is to flush the stain with detergent and warm water. Depending on how fresh it is, you may be able to remove most of the paint. Next, pour a generous splash of alcohol on the mark and, using an old toothbrush, scrub out the stain, adding more alcohol if needed. Once the stain is gone, rinse out any remaining alcohol and then launder the clothing according to instructions.If 91 percent isopropyl alcohol doesn’t quite do the trick, try using acetone (some nail polish removers are 100 percent acetone), following the steps outlined above.
