Items You Really Shouldn't Store in Your Bathroom


We spend about 30 minutes in the bathroom every day. But just because we use a lot of personal care items to make sure we look and feel our best doesn’t mean these things should be stored in the bathroom. In fact, many of them don’t belong there, and some can even affect our health and our looks if kept in a moist and hot environment.

We at TRIG are tempted to remove a bunch of stuff from our bathrooms after doing this research, and here are 4 items that may do more harm than good if you keep them near your tub. And don’t forget to check out the bonus feature at the end of the article.

1. Bar soap

9 Items You Really Shouldn’t Store in Your Bathroom

Keeping your soap near the direct stream of your shower can shorten its shelf life. Water will break your bar soap down, and the residue will build up in your bath. The best way to store your soap is to keep it on a soap dish with holes that let it dry, outside of shower.


2. Towels

9 Items You Really Shouldn’t Store in Your Bathroom

Keeping your used, damp towels in the bathroom can be a recipe for grossness. Warmth and humidity make bathrooms the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, and towels will pick up germs that we’ll later transfer to our skin. Ideally, you should wash your towels after 3 uses and allow them to dry completely before they are used again.

3. Razors

9 Items You Really Shouldn’t Store in Your Bathroom

Shower steam and the build-up of humidity can rust the blades which, in turn, can damage your skin. Even if you properly clean and dry it off after using it, storing it in a humid bathroom environment will shorten the lifespan of your razor.


4. Face creams

9 Items You Really Shouldn’t Store in Your Bathroom

When your skin cream isn’t tightly closed or sealed, the damp air in the bathroom can encourage irritation or acne-causing bacteria to grow. And every time you take a hot shower, the heat can cause the ingredients to separate. The perfect place to store your skin care products is a dry drawer outside the bathroom or the fridge.


Bonus: toothbrushes

9 Items You Really Shouldn’t Store in Your Bathroom

When you flush the toilet with the lid up, germs can spread up to 15 feet, and bacteria will most likely get sprayed all over your toothbrush. Dentists recommend keeping your toothbrush as far away as possible from the toilet, in a place where it can dry completely.

How many of these items do you keep in your bathroom? What would you add to this list?

Check Out The Most Isolated And Dangerous Tribe Who Live Without Technology

If you consider yourself fortunate to have been born in the twenty-first century, surrounded by contemporary technology and devices, you should be aware that our globe is also full with individuals who are still oblivious of all of these innovations and comforts. These are men and women born into ancient tribes who have no concept what life is like outside of the jungle, island, or mountain in which they dwell. They have no notion what lies outside the island, and the outside world has no idea how they live, what language they speak, or what they name themselves since no one has been able to discover a way into the island to film a documentary. North Sentinel Island is part of the Andaman Islands, a Bay of Bengal archipelago that also contains South Sentinel Island. It is home to the Sentinelese, an indigenous tribe who have guarded their protected seclusion from the outside world, often by force. As a result, many people refer to North Sentinel Island as The Forbidden Island. The Sent

Mahama's Son Storms Accra Sports Stadium To Support His Team; Ghanaians Massively React

Sharaf Mahama, the son of former President John Dramani Mahama, has demonstrated that one does not have to be a politician simply because his father or relative is a politician. Sharaf Mahama is now a member of the Top Scout Football Academy, and he has scored several goals for his side as a result of his abilities. Yesterday, he was sighted at the Accra Sports Stadium, when Accra Hearts of Oak faced Wydad AC as part of the CAF Champions League matches. This was the opening leg, and Accra Hearts of Oak defeated Wydad FC. When the photographs were released online, Ghanaians responded violently. Some Ghanaians urged the page that shared the image to refrain from politicizing things. According to them, he was no different than any other Ghanaian, therefore they shouldn't make his attendance at the stadium appear so spectacular. Other Ghanaians urged Sharaf to support Mahama's "Do or Die" campaign.
