But, things don’t need to be this way! Your bathroom, after all, should be a clean place, because it’s a place where you clean yourself… Right!?
With all that in mind, we’re going to take a look at 20 things in your bathroom that you can get rid of right now. To be sure, you might not have each of these things in your bathroom. However, we bet that as you go through this list, you’re going to be surprised by the number of things that you actually do have in there that ultimately serve no purpose whatsoever.
So, let’s get to it! Let’s get your bathroom (or bathrooms) in fighting shape! Get rid of the following 20 things, if you have them.
1. Old Makeup
“But, I might still use it!” you say. Oh, really? Haven’t you been saying that for the past three years? Say goodbye!
2. Old Toothbrushes
Isn’t it weird that people seem to develop sentimental attachments to their old toothbrushes? One toothbrush at a time, folks!
3. Expired Prophylactics
Unless you’re cruising for an unplanned pregnancy, then it’s time to get rid of these puppies…
4. Old Sunscreen
Open the cabinet beneath your sink? How many old and mostly-used things of sunscreen do you have under there? Get some new sunscreen when it’s summertime again!
5. Cleaning Products
With all the bathroom appliances you have, do you really have room to keep cleaning products in there? Outsource them to a central cleaning products storing location for your entire home.
Rather than keeping all of those Q-Tips in their box, why not put them in a container? Those packages are an eyesore, after all.
7. Hotel Toiletries
You shoved them in your bag when you checked out… Every time you checked out over the past decade! How many mini bottles of shampoo do you really need?
8. Soap Slivers
If you really can’t waste one little bit of soap, then just press that soap sliver on a new bar of soap the next time you’re taking a shower.
9. Piles of Clothing
Your bathroom isn’t a room that’s supposed to double as a hamper. Get those clothes out of there, and put them where they belong.
10. Sundry Lotions
How many different kinds of body lotions can one person possibly need? Pick the one you like, and get rid of the rest.
11. Old Pills
Check the expiration date on all the pills and medication in your medicine cabinet. If it’s past it’s prime, then it’s destined for the garbage.
12. Almost Empty Toothpaste Tubes
Just like people keep their old toothbrushes around, so too do people have a habit of keeping mostly-empty tubes of toothpaste around.
13. Products You Didn’t Like
How many lotions, dyes, shampoos and other things are still hanging around that you have no intention of using because you didn’t like them?
14. Too Many Towels
Do you really need to have a stack of 10 towels in your bathroom? Keep things looking neater by storing excess towels somewhere else.
15. Old Bottles of Shampoo
But there’s still a little shampoo left! I don’t want to be wasteful… Come on, you gave up on the bottle months ago. Throw it in the trash!
16. Empty Toilet Paper Rolls
You finished a roll, and then you set the paper tube on a mantle… Come on, buddy! Throw those tubes away!
17. “Reading Material”
Just think about what your guests are thinking of every time they see that pile of magazines next to the toilet…
18. Old Razors
Be honest. How many old razors do you have in the shower, in the medicine cabinet, and in the drawers. Time to get rid of them!
No, you don’t have to throw your jewelry away… But, why are you keeping it in the bathroom? Get a mirror for your bedroom, and store your jewelry there.
20. Gift Toiletries
Are you really going to use that bottle of bubble bath that your Aunt Edna gave you for Christmas? We think you know the answer…
