1. Spring Clean your Medicine Cabinet

We all have items in our medicine cabinet storage that are weird and no longer welcome. Take every last thing out of your medicine cabinet shelves and bring it down to just essentials. It’s essential to extend spring cleaning to your medicine chests. Organise all of your products, medicines, jewels and hair things into two different piles: stuff to keep & stuff to toss. If you can't find an expiration date, use your senses. If deodorant feels too tacky or smells funny, toss it.


Ditch anything that has changed colour, smell or taste. This includes any colours that have faded, because they may have been exposed to excessive light. Discard unmarked containers, if something is no longer in its actual container and cannot be recognised, get rid of it. In the future, try to always keep medicines in their authentic containers so that you can readily identify every medication. This includes ointments since these can easily be mistaken for body creams.


Please note: Be cautious and mindful about throwing out medication. Because of the possible harm to the environment, it is not suggested to simply throw out medication or flush them down the toilet. Here’s what to do:

  • Put all medicine in a sealable bag. If there are solid medications, add some water so they can dissolve.
  • Add kitty litter, coffee grounds sawdust, or any material that melds well and makes it unappealing for kids or animals to consume.
  • Seal the bag and put it in the trash can.
  • Clear any identifying details on the prescription bottle (like the label), clean and recycle.

1. Measure, Decorate and Glamorise your Medicine Cabinet

Properly measure the inside of the cabinet for the papers to line the back wall and door. Go out and bring some beautiful lining papers to line your cabinet. The fancy rich wrapping paper at your favourite stationery shop will work outstanding, you can also use wallpaper or contact paper for a better, long-lasting install. Cut out your papers to fit the back wall spaces on the medicine cabinet for the bathroom. Spread a spray adhesive to the back of the paper. Press the paper to the back of the cabinet, smoothing out all the air bubbles along the way.

Swap Door Knobs:
Another effortless way to introduce some glamour to your medicine cabinet for the bathroom is to switch out your boring, bland doorknob for a fancy, trendy one.


Add Magnetic Strips:

Once your paper is secured, put up some magnetic strips. Depending on the size of your medicine cabinet, shape and personal preference you can place the strips on the back wall and/or on the inside of the door.


Organise The Products:

Consolidating products into smaller, more appealing containers is a quick way to save room in a small medicine cabinet and add grace.

2. Do the Finishing Touches

Buy a bunch of adorable matching towels and a lavish container. Fold your towels into thirds so that you can't see any tags or binding and stack them in a visually appealing container.

1. Punctual Wiping of Spills on the Bathroom Cabinet

Most substances that dribble on the cabinets may become challenging to get rid of. If you take too long to wipe them off, they may end up staining. Hence, whenever there’s a spill on the cabinet surfaces, assure you wipe it off instantly. Use moist clothing to wipe, and then dry the surface. While getting rid of the spillage, try to use a blotting manner rather than a wiping technique. It works sufficiently and guarantees no scratches on the cabinets. Furthermore, avoid using steel wool on your wooden wall mounted medicine cabinet. It may scratch the surface of the cabinets and harm the timber finishes.

2. Check the Extreme Moisture

Always remember that moisture is one of the most destructive destroyers of surface finishes. Cabinets situated close to the bathroom basin and standalone tub and shower are most exposed to moisture. Always dry off any sites with water spillage instantly. Also, avoid placing wet towels or other wet things on the cabinet doors.

3. Dodge Harsh Temperatures

Temperature extremities can cause wood medicine cabinet with mirror  to expand and contract. As a consequence, it may warp or swell, maybe drying out. It may also cause enduring damage to your cabinet’s solid wood. The only way out is to maintain your home’s temperature all through. Otherwise, you might be compelled to replace your medicine cabinet for bathroom when they could still last you many years to come.

4. Utilise the Accurate Cleaning Material to Avoid Scratching and Scrape

Constantly clean the cabinet surfaces using gentle, damp clothing. Avoid the use of abrasive cleaners and scrubbing pads that may destroy the cabinet’s delicate finishes. Also, avoid using paper towels since they can leave behind some troubling remains.

5. Avoid Using Intense Detergents

The intense types of detergents can harm your cabinetry finishings. Support cleaners that contain ammonia, citric acid, organic solvents, and bleaches. Always work with a gentle detergent.


6. Limit Wax Exposure

Remember that regular self-polishing waxes can wear out your wood surfaces. If you find it absolutely necessary to use waxes, apply the high-quality cream furniture polishing.
