9 things to throw out of the bathroom immediately

The bathroom is where we take care of our hygiene, so it's important to keep it clean and tidy. However, over time, many things accumulate there that not only take up space but can also be harmful to health.

By keeping unnecessary things, you risk turning a cozy space into a breeding ground for dirt and bacteria. That's why Martha Stewart shared a list of things you should get rid of immediately.

Expired medications

Expired medicines can not only lose their effectiveness but also harm your health. Check your first aid kit and get rid of anything that has spoiled or is questionable, so as not to endanger yourself and your family

Shower curtain

If you use plastic shower curtains, you need to keep an eye on their condition and throw them away if they become stained or moldy.

It is better to buy curtains made of fabric that can be washed if necessary.

Old cosmetics

Old makeup can lead to many problems, such as skin infections, acne, and more. It is not always possible to find an expiration date on pencils, mascara, or other cosmetics. Therefore, if you have any doubts about the freshness of these products, you should get rid of them.

Worn-out towels

In addition to not looking very aesthetically pleasing, worn towels and bathroom rugs can start to retain moisture longer and promote the growth of bacteria and mold.

You can cut old towels into rags and use them for cleaning, and buy new ones for personal hygiene.

Old curling irons and flat irons

Appliances are quite expensive nowadays, but that's no reason to keep and use damaged and old curling irons, hair dryers, or flat irons at home. They can pose a safety hazard and even cause burns due to uneven heating.

Sponges

Washcloths, brushes, and shower sponges need to be changed quite often, as bacteria and mold grow incredibly quickly in a humid environment. So, if you don't want to risk your health and suffer from acne, folliculitis, and other skin infections, get rid of your old washcloths and buy new ones.

Sunscreen

Before using last year's sunscreen, check its expiration date. SPF loses its effectiveness over time, so it's better to buy a new one to avoid harming your skin and getting sunburned.

Empty bottles

If you have repeatedly reached for a bottle of gel or shampoo to find that it is empty, you should throw it away. Why should garbage take up extra space in your bathroom?

Pocket shampoos and shower gels

We all like to take small hotel toiletries or samples in stores with us, but we never use them. As a result, a bunch of small bottles and sticks create a mess in our bathroom.

In addition, do not use unfamiliar cosmetics, as they probably will not suit your skin type.
