When it comes to your bathroom, we are sure you have bad habits that need to be kicked to the curb, ASAP! Your bathroom plays a crucial role in your every day routine, and it is so easy to neglect it.

Fortunately for you, we have made a rundown of the most common bad bathroom habits most of us make! Own up to them and change these habits for the better.

Leaving soap on a dish

Soap dishes without any holes underneath are simply breeding ground for germs and bacteria. If you are planning to keep your soap in a dish, choose one that has holes at the bottom so germs wont strive in your soap.

Failing to deep clean your toothbrush

Experts suggest you change your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months. Also, remember to deep clean them after you get sick – this is to prevent the germs from going back into your system after you have fully recovered.

Neglecting to clean your shower curtain

Your shower curtain is exposed to water, soap, suds and dirt – which mould live for. You might notice an accumulation of mould at the very end of your shower curtain. If you see any signs of mould, sanitize and throw them in the washer for a deep clean to prevent moulds from spreading.

Shower curtains are also susceptible to yeast and fungus – which can cause skin irritation and pose other health risks.

Leaving your razor in the shower

Leaving your razor in the shower contaminates the blades with bacteria and germs. Remember, razors not only come in contact with your skin – at some point, they also scrape your skin to get rid of the hair. This directly exposes your skin to a plethora of bacteria and germs.

Leaving damp towels in the bathroom

Damp towels are breeding ground for bacteria and germs. Allow them to fully dry and wash them every after use to avoid coming in contact with them whilst still damp and unclean – you will be spreading all those harmful elements throughout your body if you do.

These are only a few bad bathroom habits you need to kick to the curb, ASAP! Did we miss out on anything? Let us know below, we love hearing what you think.
