  • HAND AND BATH TOWELS.   If you're rubbing your hands or face on towels, possible you're doing more than just drying but also transferring virus.

QUICK SOLUTION:  Replace towel regularly, and its a BIG NO NO to share with your towels with other family members.  It is better to have its own towel, to make it more safer put embroidered name on it.  Or COLOR-CODE your towels per family members. Also use ANTIBACTERIAL FABRIC CONDITIONER before drying.

  • TOOTHBRUSHES.   When brushing, you are removing plaque and food particles, so this means that contamination with bacteria, blood and saliva are being brought here.  In time, these can germinate.  Especially if your toothbrushes are placed too close together the germs can transfer from one brush to another.

QUICK SOLUTION:   Rinse thoroughly after using.  Place them at least an inch apart from each other.  Better to cover it and change them every three months.

  • TOILET BOWL.   It's not just the bowl per se that's the vial of germs, but the water inside it.  The very act of flushing after you do your thing results in polluted water particles rising into the air,  and landing on whatever is closest-the floor, the wall,and even newspaper you're using while inside the bathroom.

QUICK SOLUTION:   Always flush with the toilet lid down. Make sure your towels and toothbrushes are located away from the bowl.  Otherwise, you will be wiping your face or brushing your teeth on whatever was inside the bowl.  And don't bring newspaper/magazine/book/pocketbook inside your bathroom, so that you cannot spread the germs outside as soon your finish doing your thing inside.

  • OTHER HIGH-TOUCH SURFACES. Faucets, door knobs, shower knobs, and toilet flush-all these are touched by multiple users in a day.  Remember that some viruses can survive for hours outside the human body, so every time you wash your hands, you may have just increased your risk of catching a cold.

QUICK SOLUTION: Disinfect these areas regularly.  If you have colds or other contagious illnesses, disinfect your hands with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer often, especially before and after you touch something.

Have a PERFECT BATHROOM.  This is the place wherein you get yourself clean.  So by washing hands and getting your bathroom clean you can be free from harmful bacteria.

Wow! I didn't know that flushing the toilet should be done while the lid is placed down. I'll make sure to do that the next time. Oh, and whenever I come out of the bathroom, I always make sure to wash my hands and then disinfect with alcohol again. I really like my hands clean all the time since we have a toddler in the house. :)

What an adorable way to store toothbrushes. It also adds personality to your bathroom. I agree that bacteria can transfer from one toothbrush to another through air exposure so that also makes toothbrush storage practical and safe.

These are good reminders for truly hygienic practices regarding the use of the bathroom. I especially like how the toothbrushes are lined up on the wall separate from each other.

Oi! Thanks for these tips. Honestly, I don't do most of these. Really good to know, sis.

Segway lang.. I wonder if the kid on the photo would still enjoy her pose when she sees this in 10 years. hihihi...

Good observation. Picking up photos from photopin I also think about that sis. Wondering kung ano kaya maging feeling ng batang ito paglaki. But I still choose to pick her photo kasi ang cute nya.

My most favorite part of a house is the comfort room. And yes, I always make sure I and my family were comfortable using it.

It feels to good using bathroom that smells disinfected.

and it lessen the noise when we flush the toilet bowl with the lid down :) Nice toothbrush holders - they also serve as decoration.

Most of the houses here in Germany, toilets are separate from the bathrooms like what we have. Good to have it really since it's easy to maintain it clean and dry.
