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

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

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

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?

Mysterious Creature Appears On The Sea Shore of Osu Castle,Ghana.

  A strange creature has recently been washed up on the sea shores of the Osu castle which, reportedly, caused many people to flee the scene since they believed it could be a creature of the spiritual marine realm. Nonetheless, others also claimed it could be a human who drowned and was moved by the ocean current to the shores. Examining the nature of the creature, it appears to be a human with a vitiligo condition. Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells(melanocytes). This can result in discolored pathes in different areas of the body. Others argued that, the saturated salt from the sea is what had preserved it's body from rotting and the constant washing and rubbing of the body against the sea bed had caused its skin to peel off. Others also claimed it was a sea god. When these photos surfaced on social media, many netizens passed their views. With that, some suggested it was the corpse of the Ghanaian singer 'Castro'.

  Going under the knife to have the ‘slay queen standard’ shape seems all lovely from the beginning until the marks and side effects rares its ugly head. The model and actress shared photos on her Instagram page and in one of the shots, her fans noticed something scary on her hips as if it has started decaying. The marks seen in the photos were similar to the ones that was found on the under arm and breast of Nina Richie when fans accused her of having a breast implant.
