The price of your bathroom cabinet
Now ladies, this is one for you to think about. According to a recent report featured in the Daily Mail the average woman has £2,000 worth of beauty products inside their bathroom cabinets.
According to the article women on average will leave at least 14 beauty products in the cabinets unopened. It was discovered that women tend to use the same beauty products each day as part of a daily ritual. Over 1/6 of the products were never used but kept just in case a special occasion arises and the un used product is needed. Many women surveyed admitted the products had been left for many years in the cupboards building each year. On average this amounted to approx 65 various jars and bottles in the cupboard. Does this sound like you? Is your bathroom cupboard full of unused products which are worth a small fortune? If this is you then maybe it is time to give your bathroom cupboard a good clear out, start selling your unopened beauty products and make some money at the same time!
How dirty is your handbag?
Every woman tends to love their handbags but according to a separate study conducted by the company Initial Washroom Hygiene; it was found that on average a ladies handbag contains more germs than that of a toilet flush handle. Your handbag may be the talking point in conversations for all the wrong reasons. We may all wash our hands after using the toilet but our handbags come into contact with so many surfaces they are the perfect breeding ground for germs. It is very unlikely that you will get ill from your handbag’s bacteria but you can still take precautions to prevent the spread of any germs. The survey discovered that leather handbags are overall the worst culprits due to their spongy material properties.
It is advised never to carry any fruit in your handbag as it is very unlikely that you will wash your hands before taking a bite of your apple. If you are one of those people who love to text whilst on the toilet this is a bad idea for hygiene purposes and if you don’t want germs on your phone give it a good wipe down after taking it into the bathroom. If it has never crossed your mind to clean your handbag now may be the right time or why not treat yourself to a new one and maybe now you will think twice about putting your handbag on the bathroom floor!
