I have managed to get most things back in order since we arrived home 10 days ago but the bathroom has been neglected. The toiletries that we brought back were unpacked but had not been sorted and put away.
This afternoon I finally had time to give the cupboard a thorough clean. I took everything out and sorted through it. There was not a lot to throw out but it was good to make sure that everything went back in the correct place and a couple of sample size containers of shower gel have been put in the shower to be used up.
I also cleaned the shelves as it was several months since they were done. The mirror and basin were cleaned as well. Of course, one thing leads to another and while I was standing on the chair to reach the top of the mirror I noticed marks on the ceiling. These appeared to be insect spots and while not really noticeable I decided to clean them as they would only get worse and more difficult to remove over time. The Duke had painted the ceiling in a semi-gloss paint in an attempt to reduce the chance of mould growing and this made it quite easy to clean the ceiling. A damp cloth was all I needed and the ceiling is looking as good as new.
Here is the freshly cleaned and organised vanity unit.
I also tidied up the drawers and even took some photos but you are just going to have to believe me on that one as I am having issues getting the photos to the blog. I hope it comes good before tomorrow.
All I used to do my cleaning today was some warm water with a drop of detergent and a couple of clean cloths. I try to minimise the chemicals that I use and during the next week I hope to share some of the alternatives that you can use.
