The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and the days are getting longer - Spring is here and we are ready for it! After the Winter it feels so good to be able to open up all the doors and windows to let that fresh air in and it’s the perfect time to give your home a little glow-up. You might also be feeling that urge to “Spring clean” and what better place to start than one of the most used (and usually most underrated) rooms of the house - the bathroom! Here are 5 easy ways to keep your bathroom feeling fresh long into the Summer months.
Start by clearing out the space and giving your bathroom a thorough deep clean. Don’t forget places like the exhaust fans which can get clogged up with dust and mildew. Avoid harsh chemicals by making up a spray bottle of baking soda and white vinegar, you can also add a few drops of essential oils like lemon and eucalyptus. It’s gentler on your bath, sink and hardware and you won’t be breathing in conventional cleaning chemicals.
TIP: Throw on a banging 90’s Spotify list while you scrub - you’ll be amazed how much easier cleaning is with a little Madonna in your ears.
Nothing says Spring clean like decluttering the bathroom drawers and cupboards - if you dare! While you’ve got the bathroom cleared out to clean it, it’s the perfect time to go through it all and “Marie Kondo” it baby. If you’re like us, your bathroom has probably accumulated lots of products or items from other rooms of the home too (thanks kids). Throw away empties and make a pile of items you no longer need to donate or store away.
There’s nothing better than the feel of fluffy, freshly laundered towels. Are you a one use or once a week towel washer? We’re not here to judge either way, the experts say washing after 3-4 uses is the happy medium. If your bath, hand towels and floor mats are looking a little worse for wear, now is the perfect time to replace them.
Consider switching to an Activated Charcoal Infused towel set like our Activated Charcoal Infused 100% Cotton Bath Towels. Not only are they super absorbent (the sponge-like structure of charcoal powder absorbs bacteria, unwanted odours and sweat up to 50% faster than pure Cotton), but they are antibacterial and antimicrobial meaning they also absorb and kill microorganisms on its surface and from the air around it. (Sound too good to be true? Read more about it here.) A perfect choice if you suffer from the dreaded hay fever during Spring or any time of the year.
The 100% Cotton Activated Charcoal Towels are available as Bath Sheet, Bath Towel, Hand Towel and Face Washer.
PURE ZONE TOWEL CARE TIP: While we never recommend using conventional fabric softeners on our towels as they leave a coating on the fabric which can affect the absorbency - adding some vinegar or baking soda to your wash will not only strip away odours and help to restore the soft and fluffy feel of your towels, along with increasing their absorbency - but it’s gentle on your skin too.
Plants in Spring are a no-brainer. Not only do they look lovely, but they’ll clean the air and revitalize your bathroom. Look for a plant that likes low light and doesn’t mind humidity. If you’ve already filled your bathroom with greenery, give them a gentle clean and wipe over - it will make them happier and your bathroom brighter.
TIP: Some great indoor plant options are philodendron, pothos, peace lily, snake plants, and spider plants.
It wouldn’t be a Spring refresh without taking the opportunity to inject a fresh burst of colour into the bathroom. (White lovers, you know who you are - all white is alright too!)
Our super soft 100% Bamboo Towels are a customer favourite and come in a huge range of colours (keep an eye out for new season colours dropping soon). Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, antimicrobial and more absorbent than regular Cotton.
NEW in this season are the Chenille Noodle Bath Mats. Lightweight, quick drying and super lush under your feet. They’ve been designed in a range of colours to compliment the 100% Bamboo Towels and are a great addition to your Spring bathroom.
The NEW Chenille Noodle Bath Mats are available in Blush Pink, Ecru, Charcoal, Light Grey and Linen.
PURE ZONE FAMILY TIP: We love the idea of having a different colour towel for each family member, not only do you know you’re using your own towel but you’ll be able to see who isn’t hanging theirs up ;).
Finally, open the windows, turn on the oil diffuser and reward your hard work with a relaxing bath in your newly refreshed bathroom!
