Blitz-It Friday--Master Bath

Grab My Blog Button!

Haha, it's my first time posting a "button," let's hope it worked.

If you're coming over from, welcome to my little blog. It's a work-in-progress (like everything else in my life). ;-)

I set out yesterday to blitz my long-neglected and disgusting master bathroom. I thought I'd do 5 minutes sink, 5 minutes toilet, 5 minutes shower for a 15-minute blitz. I didn't set a timer because I was timing something else. (Yes, I know, I need a second timer.) In the end, however, the sink and mirror took 12 minutes, the toilet 7 minutes and the shower 8 minutes--so it turned out to be a nice 30-minute blitz (with the final 3 minutes spent putting supplies and garbage away and changing my yucky clothes). I knew this short time wouldn't get it perfect, but it was enough time to take the bathroom from disgusting to roughly clean. And the nastiness was really getting on my nerves so the blitz was a great way to tackle this job I'd been dreading. It will be much easier now to go back and make it guest-worthy.

I'm off to see what others have blitzed. Thanks for stopping by!

Dirty bathrooms always seem to take longer than I think they will. Sounds like you had a productive blitz!

Now, isn't that fabulous?! You just proved to yourself that you can do it!! Even when the bathroom is as disgusting as it will EVER get, you can conquer it in only 30 minutes!! I'm so "geeked" that you learned this and encouraged our hearts this way. Thanks and good job!!

Great work! Bathrooms are the hardest to tackle, but you did great. Congrats!

Oh, the bathroom! UGH!! I hate to do them but it only seems like when I don't that it gets worse. I find that I spend more time dreading doing it than if I just get up and get it done. Timers really help me with that.

This is my first visit to your blog, so I won't to browse around some more. My little one has/had some esophageal issues too.

It always takes me way longer to clean my bathroom than I expect. But, a clean bathroom is so worth it!
