4 Tips for Bathroom Safety

Your bathroom should be a haven for you to get ready for your day and take a refreshing bath or shower. However, the bathroom can potentially be dangerous if you don’t have the proper safety precautions in place. Here are some bathroom safety tips that you should remember, including: installing grab bars, making sure all surfaces are skid-proof, preventing hot water burns and keeping potentially poisonous cleaning products out of reach.

Below are 4 tips for bathroom safety:

Install Grab Bars
Place grab bars or rails in or around the bathtub, shower and toilet. When installed properly and securely, they’ll help you balance as you stand or sit and give you something to hold on to if you do slip. They come in a variety of lengths, textures and styles. (Note that a towel bar or a soap dish isn’t a substitute for a grab bar, as it’s not designed to hold your weight). Source: HealthMonitor

Make Sure All Surfaces are Skid-Proof
There are a number of skid-proof surfaces available for both the bathtub/shower stall and the bathroom floor. Individual decals do not cover the entire tub floor, so consider using a mat for the entire surface, and rugs with rubber backing for your floors. Source: Bathway

Prevent Hot Water Burns
 Be sure that your hot water is set at 120 degrees Fahrenheit because once someone opens it and it’s too hot, it would burn their skin. No one wants to get burned while in the shower. So, after using, do not forget to set it lower. This is extremely important especially with kids around. Source: HomeDesignLover

Keep Potentially Poisonous Cleaning Products Out of Reach
Never place them in the undersink area. Even better, substitute non-toxic green cleansers like white vinegar and baking soda whenever possible. This all-natural “dynamic duo” does fantastic job of descaling the showerhead, for example. Source: Networx
