It’s nice getting bath stuff at Christmas isn’t it?
Bubbles. And scrubs. And oils. And salts.
For a long luxuriant soak.
Except when was the last time you had one of those?
Rather than a quick shower on the go.
Can you remember?
So all those lovely gifts sit there.
Round the bath.
And in the cupboard.
Several years – or more – later.
So today we’re on the look out for ancient bath potions it’s probably no longer a good idea to use.
Just 10 Things – Shower & Bath
As always we’ll stick to the just 10 things rules:
- Take 5 minutes or so, 15 minutes max
- Focus on shower & bath products
- Open our eyes to the half finished, we’ll never finish
- And without yanking stuff out
- Spot any we’re ready to let go
Keep your eyes peeled for any of these …
- Shower gel
- Hand soap
- Bubble bath
- Body scrub
- Bath oil
- Bath salts
- Talcum powder
- Body lotion
And use the 2 year rule.
If it’s been open longer than 2 years and not used up it almost certainly needs to go.
It might be OK. But it might not.
AND even if it is.
If you’ve had it open 2 years and not used it up are you really going to?
No. Let it go.
If it’s not opened.
And not ancient.
You might be able pass it on.
We don’t just want to dump our clutter on other people.
But someone might be grateful for it.
Food banks and refuges may also take unopened soaps, shower gels and shampoos.
