These 7 Things Should Never Be Kept Inside The Bathroom

You may be causing damage to your precious essentials by keeping them in your humid bathroom

Shares

The bathroom is commonly where we spend a lot of time getting ready for a new day ahead, so often it is convenient for us to store our essentials there. But did you know that some of those things are not actually supposed to be stored in the bathroom at all? If you want to make sure to keep your essentials free from bacteria and long-lasting, it is time to find another place to store them. These are some of the things you should never keep inside your T&B.

Medicine

Unless you have the luxury of a medicine cabinet, keeping your medicine inside your bathroom is a bad idea. The bathroom is prone to high moisture and humidity as well as fluctuating temperatures, and storing medicine in this area means their effectiveness may get compromised. The most advisable area for medicine to be stored is somewhere with room temperature.

With its proneness to high humidity, the bathroom can become a breeding place for mold and bacteria. If you store your bath towel inside the bathroom, it can absorb that mold and begin to smell. Running an exhaust fan to help dry out damp towels can help, but try to store it (and your extra towels) somewhere else instead.

Jewelry and perfume

The high humidity and heat that often occurs inside the bathroom does not only allow mold growth but also the speeding up of oxidation processes, which can make jewelry tarnish and perfume scent to spoil.

Cosmetics


If you want to extend the shelf life of your favourite makeup products, you might want to keep them inside a cosmetics bag and stored at room temperature instead of inside your bathroom. The high humidity and constantly-changing temperatures can cause it to break down much faster. At the same time, your brushes might grow fungi and bacteria if kept inside the bathroom.

Electronic devices


Unless you want to let humidity permanently ruin your electronic devices, don’t leave them inside your bathroom. Go for waterproof devices if you can’t take a shower without having some music to sing along to.

Toothbrushes


You might not believe this, but toothbrushes should definitely not be kept inside the bathroom. Don’t risk having all sorts of harmful bacteria sprayed onto your toothbrush (especially if you commonly store it near your toilet).

Razors

Retain the lifetime of your handy razor by storing it in a cool and dry place instead of inside your bathroom, where the humidity can cause its blades to rust and therefore render it unusable.
