The bathroom is the most humid room of the house. When we take a bath or a shower, the humidity increases, as it does the temperature. Here is a list of objects that should never be kept in a humid and hot place, but we tend to put them in the bathroom cabinet. Makeup items Medicines (keep them always in a dry and cool place) Electronic gadgets Razor blades (they can rust). Clean spare towels - they can develop molds and smell bad I am guilty of keeping my makeup purse next to the sink. The medicine and towels are in other rooms.

You are doing great my friend. I keep my makeup purse in the bathroom, because it is near the biggest mirror and there is a good light to apply makeup.

The towels are in the bathroom. But, they use them with such alarming speed that they never have a chance to sit around and get damp and moldy. I do keep the hair dryers, etc, in the bathroom closet. And the razors are disposable so they put them right in the shower and yes, they rust. It 's not likely to change because there isn't any other place to keep them.

I keep the towels in a cabinet just outside the bathroom, but I keep my makeup purse just on the counter near the sink. The razor blades never last enough to rust, even if it happened when my husband bought several packages.

Hi John, my husbands keep the razor in the bathroom, it is true the the batteries last less, but it is more practical to keep it there.

Out of those 5 things, we only have razor blades in the bathroom. What sort of electronic gadgets would people keep in the bathroom, though?

In our little bathroom my husband keeps his electric trimmer. He also has an electric razor that he uses on occasion.

no we don't keep these in the bathroom, except the razor. You are right, they rust. However for the others, there isn't enough space inside, and we have separate cabinets for medicine and towels. Also gadgets---- we never use inside a bathroom.

I can't say as I've ever had that problem. And here in Maine this week, I'd be hard-pressed to find a room that isn't humid!

I am lucky, our house is not humid, but the bath becomes humid every time we take a shower or a bath.

@LadyDuck I live alone, and I use the vent fan when I shower, so humidity doesn't build up. And I have a fan that I also run in there on warmer days.

@Raelove Believe me, the fan is not enough to remove the humidity. I have an hygrometer in the bathroom and I see how much the humidity increase even with the vent fan on.

I don't keep most of those things in the bathroom as there isn't enough room. Our bathroom isn't very warm though, so not so conducive to growing things!

Our bath is not warm, except when we take a bath, the temperature goes up several degrees, that is not good for several products.

@LadyDuck Don't they get bad quickly. The humidity could cause all kinds of problems with the make up products. Luckily for me I have a neat little cabinet next to the bathroom where I store most of the stuff we keep inside.

@LadyDuck We have no where else to keep our towels but under the sink in the bathroom. I don't have medication in the bathroom anymore but we did keep it there for a while.

I keep my towels in a separate room, but I am guilty of keeping my medicines in the medicine cabinet. If there is one saving grace, the air conditioner vent in my bathroom blows directly in the direction of the medicine cabinet, so hopefully that helps keep the heat/humidity away from the medicines.

At least your medicine are under the effect of A/C. We do not have A/C (most houses in Switzerland do not), so I have to keep my first aid cabinet in the basement, it's never hot and humid down there.

@LadyDuck It's interesting how many people take things for granted. Having grown up and lived my whole life in Florida, I've always had A/C everywhere I lived. Sometimes I forget that not everybody has that luxury (in Florida, we consider it a necessity due to the heat and humidity!).

@moffittjc We do not consider it a necessity in our country, because we only have about two hot weeks in a year. What we really need is a good heating system and, possibly, also a fireplace.

I always put on my make up in a rush minutes before going out of the door, near the sink they are easier to grab.

HI Anna, NO to all of them. I do not wear makeup! LOL Medicines I keep in my study. (Out of bounds for everyone) Electonic gadgets( An electric toothbrush but I charge it in my study) I use an electric razor although it can be used in the shower! Towels in the airing cupboard not in the bathroom. So I think I should be ok!

Yes, you have valid point to make that medicines, make up kit etc. should not be kept in the bathroom. I do not keep any make up item in the bathroom (because I do not need to). I also do not keep any electronic gadgets in the bathroom.
