The Squatty Potty slogan is “The No. 1 way to No. 2.” So that should give you an idea of what we’re talking about here. Our modern westernized toilets cause distortion to a natural bend that’s in your colon, which can create severe stomach problems. The Squatty Potty helps clear that all up by getting you to sit in a – yep, you guessed it – squat-like position while on the toilet. That squat makes eliminations easier, more satisfying and an all around more pleasant experience. Users really swear by the Squatty Potty as a game-changer. It’ll make your bathroom time more pleasant and healthier.
Wouldn’t you love for your very own bathroom to feel like a spa? Hang some eucalyptus in your shower and you’ll be halfway there. According to Neurotic Mommy, eucalyptus can provide a sense of peace and tranquility, helps you de-stress and decongest and re-energizes you. And it smells good and looks pretty! When combined with hot running shower water, eucalyptus (which is a known aid for a stuffy nose) will clear up congestion and sinus headaches. The leaves are also filled with antioxidants, which fight off stress. So go ahead and bliss out in your own shower.
WATERPROOF SHOWER SPEAKERS
If you’re one of those people who only sing in the shower, you’re going to need waterproof speakers. The VicTsing Waterproof Shower Speaker lasts for up to six hours, has HD stereo sound and is Bluetooth compatible with Apple and Android devices. That means you can sing your heart out in any and all rooms in your house.
FOGLESS SHOWER MIRROR AND RAZOR HOLDER
Shaving in the shower is a whole lot easier with this mirror and razor holder from The Container Store. It’s easy to install, maximizes bathroom space and even holds a toothbrush. And no need to worry about moisture buildup, as there are built-in drainage holes at the base.
STICK-ON STORAGE PODS
No list of the best bathroom products would be complete without some cool new storage ideas. Are you sick and tired of feeling like there’s stuff on absolutely every inch of your bathroom counters? You can instantly add some storage to your bathroom with these Stick On Cosmetic Organizers. They attach easily to any flat surface. And the organizing units are adjustable, so you customize them to what you need. Just stick them anywhere and watch as your storage space is suddenly maximized.
POCKETED SHOWER CURTAIN
If your bathroom lacks storage, this shower curtain with built in pockets is your solution. It’s the way to go if your shower doesn’t have shelves or if you’re not into the look of a shower caddy. It can hold your loofahs, small towels, razors and shampoo bottles.
Fact it: There’s no worse feeling than running out of shampoo or body wash when you’re mid-shower. Well, this shower curtain could be a great place to store extras of those items. This way, your shower shelving won’t become too cluttered. And it’ll be so much easier to reach whatever you need.
BAMBOO BATH MAT
According to microbiologist and author of The Germ Files Jason Tetro, bath mats have “been recognized as a hotspot for microbial contamination in the home.” And if reading that makes you say “ew,” you should consider a bamboo bath mat. Users love these bath mats for their strength and durability, so you’ll replace them less often than you need to with a fabric bath mat. And they’re often elevated, so water doesn’t sit on your floor to cause floor damage. Bamboo bath mats are also water-resistant and don’t grow mold and mildew like your fabric bath mat does.
