How to Create a Cleaner Bathroom

Primpin’ ain’t easy!
Usually we get ready in the bathroom, polish up, scrub up and do our daily bathroom task. Have you ever thought about all the unpleasant stuff that goes on in your bathroom?

I know out of sight out of mind, but allow me to fill you in. Maybe you will want to rethink your bathroom behaviors.

Flush It


Every time you flush the toilet an invisible cloud of water droplets form, and travel eight feet into the air. Dispersing bacteria all over your primpin pad! Might want to rethink your toothbrush on the counter, and put the seat down at all times! Not only does that bacteria spread all over, but it also sticks for over two hours. If you’re hanging out in the bathroom after you flush that toilet bacteria is on you, and in your mouth. Pleasant right?




Do you Loofah?


Did you know that Loofah’s house bacteria, which can easily infect you via an open cut? If you have a natural loofah you should be washing it in the dishwasher at least once a week. After a few weeks you need to throw away that loofah and invest in a new one.
If you have a plastic or mesh loofah you should also be washing your loofah either in the washing machine or dishwasher once a week. Your loofah is good for around eight to nine weeks. After that you should consider getting a new one!





Towel Dry


How often do you wash your bathroom towels? Bath towels house tons of bacteria and dead skin cells. Which means you should never use a towel more than once!

Feeling a little grossed out? Don't worry I was too when I found out about this. Just make the simple changes for a cleaner bathroom!

  5. Yes, you grossed me out! Funny, because Bryan just mentioned to me last night that he was not washing with our loofah again b/c it had been around too long. I'm really grossed out by germs and it had seemed fine to me. Apparently not, though!

  6. It's amazing how much bacteria is really all around us. I always close the lid before I flush for just that reason, but it's probably time for me to get a new loofah.

  8. Ok, I use my loofah daily and replace like every other month ... and I use the same towel Monday-Saturday. This grosses me out!!! Ick!

    I just worry about putting the towels in the dirty clothes hamper and creating the possibility of mildew!!!

  17. I like to think the germs in my parents house kept me healthy in the long run ;). No one in my family is ever ill. Not even a common cold gets us, my dad always says that a common cold has no chance, not when the cat jumps all over the kitchen benches, we eat out of date meat all the time and no one ever puts the toilet seat down.

    Of course maybe all these germs are just slowly building up and one day I will die a long and painful death after breeding some kind of crazy new mutated disease in the house.

  18. Just realised how disgusting I am when I thought "hmm I'm just gonna throw my loofah out and not buy one again if it stores dirt". Like I actually thought that not washing properly would solve the problem. Oh man, I need to change. xxx
