While the bathroom may have a reputation for being the least glamorous room of the home, that doesn’t have to be true for you. It’s one that you’re sure to visit multiple times a day. It's important to have it stocked with items that are both practical and enjoyable.
We've put together this list of awesome and inexpensive products that will make your bathroom a more pleasant room.
1. Humble Brush
It’s estimated that between 850 million and one billion toothbrushes, mainly made from non-biodegradable plastic handles, are discarded and end up in landfills every single year in the U.S. The Humble Brush is here to make a difference with an earth-friendly toothbrush that is good for both the planet and your smile.
Each humble brush handle is made from 100% biodegradable bamboo. The Humble Brush has no disadvantages to your current toothbrush because it also features a non-slip handle and soft bristles for both adults and children. The bamboo handle really gives the toothbrush a simple, timeless look. The bristles are available in five fun colors: white, blue, yellow, purple and black.
Additionally, the packing is made out of recycled materials. Even the clear wrapper made from plants is biodegradable. Just when you think the Humble Brush couldn't get any better, it does! For each toothbrush sold, the Humble Smile Foundation funds oral care for those who typically go without. No wonder it's won an award for The Best New Natural Living & Home Product. This is a toothbrush that will really have you smiling each and every day.
2. Tube Wringer
We've all been to the dreaded end of the toothpaste tube. I've done everything from squeezing, twisting and flattening the tube to eventually cutting the tube open with scissors to get every penny's worth. The Tube Wringer is here to make your toothpaste tube a little less stubborn. To use, simply secure your tube between the aluminum rollers and turn the steel handle to compress.
The U.S. manufactured Tube Wringer has an advantage over your traditional plastic tube squeezers because the wringer not only flattens but crimps the tube which helps to prevent squeezed material from spreading back out into the body of the tube. It's simple, sturdy, effective and will last you for years and years to come. For all of you artists out there, consider using this on your paint tubes to truly get all that you paid for.
3. Spout Cover
Who doesn't love the feeling of taking a hot bath and melting all of the day's stress away? What child doesn't love to splash with some bubbles and a rubber ducky in the tub? Both children and adults enjoy spending time in the tub, but it's easy to find yourself constantly fiddling with the spout to get the temperature just right. The Spout Cover by 4Moms is here to make bath time more enjoyable for both parties. Instead of sticking your hand under the spout and finding out the hard way that the water is scorching hot, this spout cover displays the waters temperature digitally.
The digital display is also color-coded to make it even easier to know if the water is safe and comfortable for you and your little one. A blue screen for water that is too cold, a green display for the optimal temperature level, and a red warning display when the water reaches a too hot temperature of 100 degrees or higher. The cover is able to fit most standard tub faucets
Now that your bath water is at optimal temperature, it's time to really relax! What better way than with a glass of wine? The SipCaddy is here to help! The SipCaddy is a portable cup and wine glass holder. Rather than balancing your wine glass on the ledge of your tub, just apply the suction cup to a nonporous surface for hands-free comfort.
If wine isn't your bath beverage of choice, you'll be happy to know that the SipCaddy also comfortably holds cans from 6 to 24 ounces, bottles, champagne flutes, slim coffee mugs, solo cups, regular cups and a wide variety of bathroom products. The suction cup is tested to hold up to 7 Ibs., so you’ll have no worries about your beverage falling in. It's small enough to throw into a carry on, making it a perfect companion on vacation. Cheers!
The shower, along with other parts of the bathroom, is one place in our home that we visit every day, where our mind can easily disconnect from the stress and distractions around us. This allows our minds to wander, coming up with some brilliant shower thoughts. I’ve personally come up with some of my blog ideas while in the shower. However, we all know the frustration of having an incredible idea hit you in the shower only to have it slip away before you have a moment to write it down. Now you can jot down those ideas with the AquaNotes Waterproof Notepad. The AquaNotes notepad suctions to your shower walls and features 40 perforated sheets so you can take your brilliant ideas and grocery list wherever you need. The pencil is even water-resistant! Don't let those awesome ideas ever go down the drain again.
