8 Things You Should Remove From Your Bath Right Now

8 Things You Should Remove From Your Bath Right Now

Raise your hand if you've never thought about how hot and humid bathrooms affect the things you store in said space (us either). That's just one of the reasons you might need to find a new home for your makeup, jewelry, towels, and more

Bar Soap

Well, if you want to make cleaning this room easier, that is. Use a liquid soap with a pump or hands-free soap dispenser to eliminate the need to clean a grimy soap dish or countertop every few days.


Don't be fooled by your medicine cabinet: The bathroom is no place your meds, since it's prone to moisture and fluctuating temps. Instead, keep your prescriptions  at room temperature (between 68 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit).


Apparently, the humid environment in the bathroom will speed up the oxidation process of your jewelry and cause it to tarnish — even if you don't wear it in the shower. You should keep precious items in a cool, dry room instead.


It doesn't matter whether you wear powder, cream, or liquid makeup: All of it should be stored at room temp and therefore not in your bathroom. Hey, just add it to your list of reasons to invest in a new bedroom vanity.


And same goes for your perfume. Even though your first inclination might be to show off your pretty bottles in the room you get ready in — wait! Heat and humidity speeds up the oxidation process and will cause your scent to spoil more quickly. Yikes.

Non-Waterproof Electronics

We get it: There's nothing like singing along to Taylor Swift in the shower. But the high humidity makes technology that isn't designed for the bathroom vulnerable to damage. Our advice: Pick out a waterproof device to be safe.

Nail Polish

Even though these pretty colors have an expected life of two years, if you keep them in the bathroom with its always-fluctuating temperatures, that might not happen. Instead keep them in a place that stays at room temperature, like your bedroom.

Extra Razors

Your current blade can stay safely stashed in your shower or medicine cabinet, but keep the others in another room. Why? The moisture and steam from the shower might dull or rust your blades before you get a chance to use 'em.
