I would bet that the bathroom probably isn’t one of the first places you think about implementing Feng Shui...
Bathrooms are often a source of “leaking” energy and more often than not they need attention. Let’s be honest, there are some not so clean activities happening in here. In addition to the general bathroom "activities" , there are draining pipes, cleansing of dirt off our hands and bodies, dirty laundry and more.
Below are my 6 Tips to Good Feng Shui in the Bathroom
Step 1: Deep clean your bathroom
Give it a thorough clean. Tidy those things you sometimes don’t get to and ensure it is sparkling!
Step 2: Clear clutter
Sure, we all might be able to dig in the back of a cabinet and find a travel shampoo from five years ago. Got five of them? Time to toss! Eliminate any old items, old towels that smell of mildew, old medications and more.
Step 3: Make it feel like a SPA
Yes! What can you do to make it feel like a spa? Soft, fluffy towels? Scented candles perhaps? Add in those extra touches so it feels like a lovely place.
Step 4: Keep the toilet lid down!!!
If you do nothing else on this list, keep the toilet lid down when not in use. Besides, you don’t want to walk into your new “spa bathroom” and the first thing you look at is the inside of your toilet!
Step 5: Plug your drains
Energy easily exits via the sink drains. You can pull the plug on your drains when not in use to prevent this “leaking”. This one is especially easy if you have a tub or shower that is not used often. Not a fan of this option? I like to add river rocks to my sinks to slow down the drainage. It looks great too!
Step 6: Tie a red string around your drainpipes
This is a traditional Feng Shui cure to slow the Chi down. P ick up red string or ribbon at a local craft store.
Hopefully these easy tips encourage you to take your bathroom from simply a functional place to a place that you enjoy being in. Now don't forget the fluffy towels!!!!
