I love having friends and family come to our house. Most of the time my house is picked up but the biggest battle is with my girls and the guest bathroom. They think they can leave it a mess. I try to instill in them that they need to keep the bathroom clean because it is after all the guest bathroom as well. Here are some ways to make your bathroom friendly for both family and friends.
