When it comes to packing up their home, most people assume that the bathroom is the least of their concerns. After all, it is fairly small and there are not many things in it. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't think about how you are going to pack up your bathroom though.

Read on for tips that will help you pack your bathroom.

Know How To Pack Medicines 

There are three things to think about when it comes to packing up medicine. Which medicines you need to take with you for immediate use, which medicines can be packed away, and which medicines should be thrown away. Now is the time to go through your bathroom and gather up all of your medicines so that you can start sorting them.

It's always a good idea to pack up the medicines that you need immediately in an overnight bag that you take with you – rather than in a box that needs to be found and unpacked. You'll be thankful for this decision when you get to the end of your moving day and just want to go to bed, without digging through boxes for a specific medication.

Know How To Pack Toiletries

Packing up your toiletries involves a bit of thought as well, since many of these items contain liquids that can leak. Use a small box so that it can manage the weight of all of the bottles, and then line it with a trash bag. This will prevent the items from leaking through the box if they become disrupted during the move. You can also pack toiletries in individual bags if you feel like they run a higher risk of leaking, and they are being packed with other items that are going to be difficult to clean.

Know How To Pack Wet Items

If you have items that are wet from recently using them, such as a loofah, put those in their own plastic bags so that the moisture does not get trapped inside the cardboard box with other items. You'll be taking them out right away when you start to unpack, so you don't have to worry about mold forming in the bag. 

You likely are going to leave some wet items back at your old place, such as the old shower curtain, so there is no need to take it with you. However, you'll want to let those items dry out as much as possible if you do pack them up. Consider showering the night before your move, so it has time to dry.
