As a mom, you work really hard to keep your home running smoothly, so the last thing you want before putting the kids to bed is an epic bath-time battle. Sometimes, though, the tantrum is unavoidable. Fortunately there are a few minor upgrades that you can make to your bath and tub that actually add exponential amounts of comfort and convenience.
In addition to the soft track shower doors introduced last fall, another new bathroom innovation that I love is magnetic shower heads. Rather than swinging your arm around in the air and risking getting shampoo in your eyes to reattach the handheld part of a typical shower head, this new technology employs a strong magnet in the docking system that allows it to reconnect swiftly and easily.
BATHING YOUR KIDS
Magnetic shower heads are very convenient for bathing your little ones because they have a much lower mounting height than standard hand showers. Plus, when you’re done rinsing, the integrated magnetic docking system makes returning the shower head to its place a snap (literally)!
BATHING YOUR FURRY KIDS
Pet bath time brings with it a whole new set of challenges, but when you have a super efficient rinsing tool on hand, things start looking up. Even more, you can find Fido’s favorite spray setting by customizing with just a quick click of the dial.
Another great feature of this fixture is that when you scrub your bath tub or shower and tile surround, you can rinse with a powerful spray setting, then quickly and easily return the device to its dock. If you decide to make the switch in your bathroom, one great option is Moen’s Attract Handshower with Magnetix™ technology. Cleaning also takes less work when you choose the Brushed Nickel finish because it includes Moen’s exclusive Spot Resist™ finish which helps resist fingerprints and water spots to maintain the brilliance of the fixture.
Smart moms love anything that makes life easier. What are your favorite time savers in the bathroom?
