You've got everything all set for your backyard barbecue. You've got delicious food, beautiful decor, fun activities, great music, you've got bug spray for your guests. But are you forgetting something? Is your bathroom ready for all of your summer barbecue guests?
We've had several backyard barbecues this summer already. We usually have 20 to 30 people at our parties. As you can imagine, the bathroom gets a lot of traffic. Here's how I make sure my bathroom is ready:
I try to keep my guest bathroom clean on a regular basis anyway, but before our barbecues I like to give the bathroom a quick clean up. I make sure to give the toilet a quick scrub, and wipe down the counter tops and the mirror.
Next I make sure that my soap dispenser is nice and full.
I absolutely hate wiping my hands on a damp towel that everyone else has been using, even when it's just my family. So especially when I know a lot of people will be washing their hands in my bathroom, I like to keep a roll of paper towels on the sink.
It is a bathroom after all, so I also like to keep an air freshener out and about. This cute little anchor is hiding a scent satchel.
Finally, I want to make sure my bathroom is well stocked with toilet paper. It's embarrassing for everyone when this happens:
Fortunately this doesn't happen when I start the party off with a new roll of Cottonelle Mega Roll toilet paper. These rolls have 4 times the amount of sheets as a regular roll of toilet paper (†comparing number of sheets to leading Ultra 77-ct. roll) so you don't need to change the roll as often.
I do most of my shopping to get ready for my barbecues at Walmart, including picking up the Cottonelle Mega Rolls. Right now you can save $1 on Cottonelle Mega Rolls at Walmart starting 6/28 with this Cottonelle Ibotta rebate. The little guy is in the middle of potty training, so I let him pick out the package of toilet paper.
He was pretty good today, but if you've ever gone shopping with a cranky 2 year old, you know what a pain that can be. Or, you know they're going to fall asleep during the car ride and really don't want to wake them up, but you need those groceries. Fortunately Walmart has convenient grocery pickup. Shop online and they'll bring your groceries straight out to your car. Click here to see if Walmart Grocery Pickup is available in your area.
But like I said, today I went into the store to pickup what we needed to get the bathroom ready for guests.
With Cottonelle Mega Rolls your toilet paper holder will look like this.
With the Cottonelle Mega Rolls you won't have to worry about changing the roll during your party, or having embarrassed guests that need to call for more toilet paper.
Follow these tips and you'll be all set with having your bathroom ready for summer bbq guests. And don't forget to pick up your Cottonelle Mega Roll toilet paper at Walmart.
