    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.

    It prevents straining and helps with hemorrhoids, constipation, and bloating.

    “Yes. I used the Squatty Potty while pooping and it made pooping easier. It took a day or two to get used to, but within a week of using it, I noticed quite a positive difference in my, uh, evacuation. It took less effort and less time, and really just made the whole process a lot more pleasant. In fact, within a week, it started feeling strange to use other toilets WITHOUT the Squatty Potty. I actually prefer using it now.” —Kat Angus
