18 Bathroom Products That Will Make Your House Cleaner

The bathroom is the most dangerous room in your house. The majority of fatal and crippling accidents happen in bathrooms, because they are sleek, slick, and wet, which is a recipe for slips and falls, but that’s not the only killer lurking in your restroom. There’s also the fact that it is the one place in the house where we go to dispose of all our filth, making it a disease-riddled petri dish at the best of times. Every time you flush your toilet, you saturate the environment with aerosolized feces, and that’s only the worst offender in a room full of grime. Steps must be taken to keep this room clean, or you risk becoming patient zero for any number of bacteriological and viral outbreaks.

Keeping a bathroom clean is difficult in the best of circumstances. The sheer nature of the space makes it a place where filth accumulates, and short of cooking the whole room with microwaves, you’re never really going to get it sterile. Rather than scrubbing on your hands and knees, enjoying a nice bleach-fume buzz as you kill off brain cells, we suggest you work smarter and let these 18 remarkable buys help keep the body and germ count low in your inside outhouse.
