PREPARING TO RELAX
As the season cools, the restorative effects of a hot bath become increasingly appreciated. Keeping the bathroom clean and ready means it can be enjoyed on a whim. Every few days, the bath is given a scrub with bicarbonate of soda, white vinegar and warm water, then thoroughly rinsed. Towels are washed weekly and scraps of old soap removed. The supply of bubble bath, oils and scrubs are kept well stocked and any languishing bottles recycled. A number of candles are also kept nearby, so that a warm atmosphere can be easily created.
