How to Keep Your Bathroom Clean and Tidy

August 26, 2015 5:09 pm

Your bathroom is one of the most-used rooms in your home, but that doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours scrubbing it down every day. By being proactive about your cleaning and using these smart tips for maintaining organization, you can keep your bathroom clean and tidy without a whole lot of effort.

  1. Create a place for everything. Instead of storing beauty products and toiletries on the sink, create a designated place for everything inside of a cabinet or on the shelf of a closet. That way, you can quickly tuck everything away when you’re done using it.
  2. Stay ahead of soap scum. By using a multipurpose bathroom cleaner and wiping down surfaces every day, you can prevent soap scum from forming — and reduce your time spent scrubbing away grime during deep cleans.
  3. Wipe down the mirror. Keep a microfiber cloth in your bathroom to wipe away stray water droplets or toothpaste splashes every morning and night.
  4. Close the shower curtain. Prevent mold from forming in the shower curtain by pulling it closed so that it can properly air out after your shower.
  5. Empty the trash. You’ll be surprised about how much neater your bathroom looks after simply emptying the trash can, so be sure to do it daily. Hey, it only takes 30 seconds!

Lake Merritt: Oakland Locals Heart this Heart-Shaped Lake

August 19, 2015 4:51 pm

From overhead, Lake Merritt vaguely resembles a heart—a fitting shape for its shoreline, given that the inhabitants of Oakland love the lake and its surrounding park. In fact, it's racked up nearly 500 glowing reviews on Yelp, quite a feat for an urban park. It also happens to be the oldest designated wildlife refuge in the U.S., protecting native species since 1870, so you'll find plenty of critters at Lake Merritt.

Many guests enjoy getting to know the local creatures better at the bird sanctuary. More than 100 different varieties of birds call Lake Merritt home, from the familiar American robin to the bright blue Stellar's jay. If bird watching isn't your thing, stroll through the gardens or spread out a blanket on the lawn for a picnic. You can also go boating out on the water, take a bike ride around the lake's 3.4-mile perimeter, or go for a run along its path. No matter what you choose to do at Lake Merritt, locals seem to agree that it's a great spot to soak up some sunshine and breathe fresh air.
