Ten Things You Shouldn't Keep In Your Bedroom

Ten Things You Shouldn't Keep In Your Bedroom


When it comes to small bathrooms, bathroom closets and cabinets can be a great source of additional storage for toiletries, linens, medications, and other essentials.

Alternatively, many items that are usually kept in the bathroom should be kept in a cold, dry area with minimum temperature and humidity fluctuations.

Keeping these items in the bathroom may be harmful to them, as well as a potential health hazard to others. To learn more about 10 items that should never be kept in the bathroom, continue reading this article.


1. Laundry and basket (or hamper)

A washing basket in the bathroom is, without a doubt, the best solution. Put dirty clothes in before showering and used towels in after showering because it is more convenient this way. However, as a result of the increased humidity, mildew and a sour odor may develop in your clothing.

It will also encourage the growth of a large number of bacteria, which will be resistant to removal even by a washing cycle at 140 degrees Fahrenheit.


2. Towels.

Many bathrooms have linen closets where people store their bath towels, but the damp air in these spaces is not conducive to drying them properly.

While not the most convenient location for storing towels, hallway linen closets are the best option if they are accessible. This is because they will not be exposed to high humidity levels, which can cause mildew to develop and produce a musty odor. The same rules apply to bathrobes and other linens as they do to other clothing.


3. Toothbrushes.

Yes, you should keep your toothbrush in the same place where you brush your teeth, but flushing your toilet releases bacteria into the air, which you should avoid doing. Heat and moisture are conducive to the growth of these germs, so keep your toothbrushes in a cold, dry location, such as your bedroom, to avoid spreading them.


4. Embroidery and jewelry


If you own any antique or vintage jewelry, you may have noticed discolorations in the metal over time. On new accessories, oxidation, a natural process enhanced by moisture and humidity, is responsible for the tarnished appearance. If you want to keep the luster and brilliance of your necklaces, rings, and bracelets, store them in a cool, dry environment.


5. A supply of spare razor blades.

Because of the moisture and steam from showers and baths, the blades can become dull and rusted, making them less effective and even dangerous in some cases.


6. A nail polish.

It's best not to store your gorgeous polishes in the bathroom, where the temperature can fluctuate, if you want to maximize their estimated two-year shelf life. Maintaining them at room temperature is preferable; this implies that they should not be kept in the refrigerator.


7. Sponge, combs and make-up brushes.

These types of products are prone to absorbing moisture and accumulating mold. As disgusting as it is to brush your teeth with a bacteria-infested toothbrush or sponge, it is also unsanitary to brush and sponge your skin with a moldy make-up brush or sponge.


8. Fragrance(perfumes).

A high-quality fragrance should endure for a long time and is not likely to be inexpensive. Light, heat, and moisture, on the other hand, can swiftly degrade your favorite perfume.

Keep your bottles in a cool, dry location, such as the inside of a drawer, or display them on a closet shelf to add a decorative touch. Simply put, keep scents away from the toilet at all costs..


9. Electronics.

High humidity can cause harm to electronic devices such as radios, iPods, and even phone chargers. It should not be used in the bathroom unless it is specifically made for this purpose (for example, your electric toothbrush).


10. Medicine.

Even though many of us keep our prescription prescriptions in the bathroom (after all, it's called a medicine cabinet), the bathroom is not the best location for pills and potions.

While most prescription labels specify that they should be stored in a cold and dry environment, chances are that your bathroom is the most humid place in your home. Instead, store your prescription bottles in your bedroom, where they will be out of reach of children. The same advice can be applied to vitamin supplements.
