It’s officially time for spring cleaning, but as you focus on scrubbing floors, refreshing draperies and dusting every surface in sight, don’t forget about one area critical to your health and happiness: your medicine cabinet. Your medicine cabinet is the workhorse of your bathroom, meaning it can quickly become a chaotic mess of bottles, pastes, brushes and other items you need every day. It’s time to cut through the clutter and refresh this area so you can find everything you need in an instant.


Too many things stacked together makes it difficult to see everything in the medicine cabinet. Take the time this spring to get organized and focus on items you really need. Go through your cabinet and remove unused and expired items that are taking up valuable space, including makeup, cough syrup and prescription medicine. Once you’ve cleared old and unused items, take the things you use regularly and group similar products together to make it easier to find what you need. For example, on the first shelf, place pastes and brushes, on the second shelf shaving supplies, and designate the top shelf for medications.


A fresh start


Now that your medicine cabinet is organized, it’s time to stock up on essentials that you use regularly and that keep you feeling happy and healthy. If you are a denture wearer, this is the perfect time to explore using an adhesive.

Be prepared

Not only is it important to re-evaluate the contents of your medicine cabinet, but it’s also worthwhile to think ahead so you’re always prepared. For small things like insect bites, cuts and stubborn coughs, anticipating the unexpected is key. At the start of each season, consider what you might need. For example, is it time to stock up on allergy medicine and sun block? For prescription medications, consider signing up for your pharmacy’s auto-refill program so you never forget an important refill again.

Spring cleaning is a great way to reinvigorate your home and life, so remember to include organizing your medicine cabinet on your list of to-dos.
