Packing a bathroom may seem easy at first. But once you realize that you have a lot of stuff in there, you will realize that it is not really a simple task that doesn’t need any plan. Each room in your house needs to be evaluated before you start packing anything, including the bathroom. Because you might misplace things when you just begin packing things without planning beforehand, you will have more trouble than you think you would have. And this will not feel so great especially when you would want to enjoy your new home as soon as possible.
Moving companies in San Diego, such as Coastal Moving, will definitely appreciate your effort in keeping your bathroom stuff properly packed as this will make the process much faster, which will save you a lot of money. Most important of all, is that they’re highly recommended.
Packing Your Bathroom
Packing your bathroom properly is important as this is the place that you often keep your toiletries, medication and personal stuff. Thus, when packing, don’t just throw everything in a box. Make sure that every item has its proper place so that they can be easily found, especially your meds.
- Prepare Plastic Bags and Packing Tapes
Before you do any packing in your bathroom, make sure that you have plastic bags and packing tapes in hand so that you can put anything that might leak in a sealed packaging. You should also prepare a plastic bag for everything that you are going to throw away or give to recycling facilities, particularly expired medicines.
- Go Through Your Medicine Cabinet First
The first thing that you would want to check is your medicine cabinet. Check all the medicines and keep what you still need and throw away everything that is already expired in your designated plastic bag. You should also discard medicines that have faded labels. If the color and the smell of the meds are also off, you should discard them.
Keep every medicine, makeup and toiletries that you will need in a separate box. Keep things that you think can leak in a plastic bag before putting them in a box also. It would also help if you would inform the staff of San Diego movers what the boxes’ contents are so that they will keep them in an accessible place.
- Linens, Shower Curtains and Towels
These things do not have to be packed as they can be used as padding for your fragile items. Make sure that you get them out of their cabinets so that you can easily see them and use them once you start packing your breakable stuff.
- Spray Cans
Spray cans such as your body spray, hair spray and aerosol cans may explode when kept in a hot place so when you are moving during summer, you should keep them in your overnight bag instead of the boxes that you’re going to put in the moving truck. San Diego moving companies would not likely let you keep these in the boxes anyway as they can cause harm to you and their crew.
