    46 Practical Things For Your Bathroom That You Didn't Know You Needed

    You'll actually want to spend more time in the bathroom.

    1. A set of fluffy cotton towels that will upgrade your bathroom decor. They have a thick and luxurious feel, and reviewers love how soft, durable, and absorbent they are!

    2. A Squatty Potty that'll make it WAY easier to poop. The stool will help you into a comfortable squatting position, which is supposed to be better for your body than sitting. Reviewers say it helps reduce the amount of time they spend in the bathroom.

    4. A long and flexible drain snake that has over 4,000 tiny hooks to pick up all the gunk and debris hiding in your kitchen and bathroom pipes. It’ll save you time and money in the long run, because you won’t have to hire a plumber or buy chemical drain cleaners. It’s absolutely disgusting, but incredibly satisfying to use.

    5. A revolving makeup organizer that is the beauty equivalent of Cher Horowitz's closet. It'll save you a bunch of space, and the shelves are also adjustable, so you can fit all of your makeup and skincare products.
