Shelves and drawers wiped down and tidied up
I had done this in November 2015 and glad to say i only had to straigten each area rather than take everything apart and reorganize.
Our group responses are as follows:
One garbage bag
Open up your bathroom cabinets & remove items for trash, keep or repurpose
Trash: remove expired medication or no longer use from bottle & put in garbage bag; expired make-up; expired perfumes & lotions. Yucky toiletries items: bath & shower products. Gross or unpleasant bath items.
Repurpose: empty bottles or containers for other uses or as a gift
Replace or sanitize: hairbrushes & combs can be sanitized in your dish washer. Replace if they are not washable.
First Aid Kit: ace bandages; bandaid[s] or liquid bandaid for each person in your household; gauze; adhesive tape; aspirins; tweezers; antiseptic; cotton balls; scissors; peroxide; antibiotic cream or ointment; needle or safety pin

I have too many things. It’s nice to see some of the stuff I forgot about. I do see I have a problem with collecting the fountain of youth.. But not using the fountain of youth products..
my group responses are as follows: Open up your bathroom cabinets & toss the following into your trash bag: old, expired & yucky: toiletries, make-up**, bath or shower products, dirty hairbrushes & combs, mildewed bottles. Check the dates on your prescription bottles, if expired, throw away. Also, throw away medications you no longer use. Personal choice: unused items from the past year.

I have been out of town, so I am playing catch up. My bathroom cabinet is fine, but my counters are not. I wanted to show a photo and ask for ideas. I have a rental, but there is a wall if I could somehow make shelving without holes.
