5 things you need to stop doing in your bathroom

Unfortunately, your bathroom probably isn't in the best shape it could be due to bad habits you've learned from others or developed on your own. This IllumiBowl post has five things you need to stop doing in your bathroom to improve your bathroom conditions:

1. Stop waiting too long to wash your towels: It's understandable. You don't want to have to wash your towels more than needed to conserve water and electricity. However, you should start washing your towels after 2-3 uses. It'll help put an end to drying yourself with a smelly towel. Bath towels can become breeding grounds to harmful microbes and other nasty germs.

2. Stop keeping your window closed: Start opening your window and turning on your bathroom fan when you're taking care of business on the toilet or taking a shower. Allowing air to effectively circulate through your bathroom will help reduce any unwanted odors and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

3. Stop letting your trash overflow: Don't be a slob. When your trash can is close to full, empty and replace the liner. One way to keep the trash can from becoming smelly is to add 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda to the inside of the trash can. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer.

4. Stop ignoring broken pipes: Maintenance and repairs that are ignored will end up becoming more pricey the longer you choose to not pay the price now. One way to be prepared for costly repairs is to set aside an emergency budget from your paycheck each month. Another way to anticipate repairs is to do a monthly maintenance check of your bathroom such as being aware of leaking pipes or chipped bathroom flooring.

5. Stop running out of cleaning supplies: Keep tabs on your cleaning supply inventory. You don't ever want to run out of anything such as toilet cleaner or toilet paper.
