Although there are some products made specifically to be used in the bathroom, they should definitely not be stored in the bathroom. In this writeup, we share some of the things you should never store in your bathroom.
Bathrooms are the perfect breeding ground for mould and other germs, and your towels are easily susceptible to these gross germs. It’s fine to keep one towel hung up in the bathroom, as long as you swap it out once a week. Turning on an exhaust fan can help dry out the room and your damp towel faster. Store extra towels in a closet.
Heat and perfume just don’t mix. The fluctuations in temperature (the kind that can occur when you take steamy showers) can destroy the molecular integrity of your fragrance and cause it to sour.
You should keep bathrobes out of the bathroom. Just like towels, damp robes could harbour bacteria, and humidity can give them a musty odour. Let them dry in your closet instead of on a hook in your bathroom.
It can be nice to have some reading material available while you’re doing your business in your bathroom. But the books and magazines that are kept bathroom will absorb moisture, leaving you with wrinkled pages and deteriorating binding.
Your toothbrush can easily stock up on dirt if you leave them in the bathroom. To keep your brush as germ-free as possible, rinse and air-dry it after each use, and, if you still choose to store it in the bathroom, close the toilet lid before you flush.
Leaving your makeup products in the bathroom exposes them to a lot of unwanted heat and moisture, which allows mould and other bacteria to spread and make your makeup go bad faster. And like toothbrushes, makeup brushes are also bound to get contaminated. That’s something you definitely don’t want touching your face.
