5 Tips for Packing Bathroom Essentials for Your Upcoming Move in the GTA

For most people, the bathrooms are the very last rooms they will pack. It is impossible to pack it ahead of time since you and your family still need to use the bathroom. Yet, you do not want to wait until moving day to pack up everything you keep in your bathrooms.

If you do, what you end up with is boxes full of bathroom essentials that are intermingled. Not to mention the possibility of broken glass, cracked bottles with shampoo or soap running out, and other things that will make unpacking a nightmare.

Tip #1: Take the time to pack items that are extra or not needed.

If you like to stock up on bathroom essentials, like soap, shampoo, and toilet paper, you can go ahead and pack up these things up ahead time. Just make sure to leave out whatever you will need to get you through the move.

You can also pack up any extra face cloths, hand towels, and towels you don’t need. Just leave out one set of towels for each person in the home. When they switch to the clean set, you can easily launder the other set to have clean towels available.

Tip #2: Get rid of any excess bathroom clutter you no longer want or need.

All of us have that one drawer in the bathroom that becomes a “catch-all” for stuff we don’t know what to do with. Now is the perfect time to go through that drawer and toss out anything you really aren’t using or need.

If you find expired over-the-counter and prescription medications in your bathroom drawers, bag them up and drop them off at your local pharmacy so they can be disposed of correctly and safely.

Tip #3: Set aside bathroom cleaning supplies.

You will want access to your bathroom cleaning supplies now and after you move. You can take a moving box and put everything you need in the box and store it in a bathroom cabinet for easy access.

Tip #4: Avoid broken and leaking liquids by using the right packing materials.

When you are ready to back up liquids you will want to have an assortment of zip-locking plastic bags. Make sure the lid is on tight. You can take some packing tape and wrap it around the lid to keep in place. Put the item in a zip-locking plastic bag.

Release the air as you seal the bag. Next, wrap the items in bubble wrap for added protection and padding. To save time unpacking, use a black marker and write on the bubble wrap what is wrapped up.

Tip #5: Use large trash bags for shower liners and curtains on moving day.

After everyone has showered, it is quick and easy to pack up shower liners and curtains by shaking off excess water, folding them up, and putting them in trash bags you can tie shut.

By using these tips for backing bathroom essentials, you won’t have to worry about having to pack the entire bathroom come moving day.

    The team of movers was on time, friendly, and professional. The move chief lent me some large boxes at no cost. In no time, my stuff was in my new apartment. I've employed Sue Land Moving before, and I will employ them again.

    I recently used SueLand Moving and Storage to move and the whole process from booking to moving day was seamless. Leyland and his staff were professional, on-time, and incredibly efficient. Given the horror stories I've heard about other companies, I had no idea moving could be this stress-free! I highly recommend SueLand Moving for your next move.
