    31 Bathroom Things You'll Be So Glad You Bought

    Bathroom time just got wayyy cooler.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A skull soap dispenser that'll def be cool enough to remind every bonehead that comes in your bathroom to WASH 👏🏿THOSE 👏🏿 HANDS 👏🏿.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four styles).

    2. A pineapple toothbrush holder to bring an adorable splash of color to your bathroom and save counter space. You can stick this cutie on your bathroom mirror, the wall, or in the shower!,

    One reviewer even shared that she travels with this toothbrush holder and sticks it on all the mirrors in her hotel rooms.

    Promising review: "Super cute idea without taking up bench space, works best with 1-2 toothbrushes but you can squeeze 4 in there. Drain holes at the bottom mean that it stays clean, you can tug on it and it won't come off (I tried after 24 hours), which means it should stay up easily with whatever you fit in there, but it's easy to peel if you want to remove or move it. Great design that makes me smile, who wouldn't want a pineapple to brighten your morning brushing :)" —Lisajanea

    Get it from Amazon for $14.93.

    3. A matching pineapple bath rug if you're feeling ~really~ fruity and want to keep the theme going. This will definitely brighten up your entire bathroom.

    The rug has a non-slip design and it's machine-washable.

    Promising review: "This works great in the bathroom! It's really soft and the perfect size for the space by the tub. I haven't tried washing yet but it seems like it will wash fine." —Karen H.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.82.

    4. A three-tier shelf to put over the toilet for more storage and organization space. I love that it's made of faux wood which means it'll also look like actual home decor unlike the sterile plastic and metal ones. Based on the review photos, this cute shelf is a godsend for tiny bathrooms.,

    Promising review: "DO NOT HESITATE!!! Purchase this! You won’t find a better price. I looked at Walmart, Target, Wayfair, Overstock... They all had the same thing for way more $. This is the best price you’ll find this for! It's so sleek and clean and cute! We have a tiny bathroom and wanted to add more storage without taking up room. This was PERFECT! It even came with bolts to nail it into the wall so it’s secure, which was super thoughtful considering I have a little one. Love this!!!" —Kaytlin Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $62.95.

    5. A kitty over-the-door hanger for holding your bathrobe or bath towels. Isn't it purr-ty?!


    Promising review: "This is so much better than boring hooks. It is substantial and holds clothes and the thinner plastic coat hangers easily. The hooks are small, (about the size of my pinky finger — size 4-ish), so it won't hold more than one robe per hook." —Judy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available as a single or a set).

    6. A luxury plant-based soap set to keep in the bathroom as a reminder to treat yourself to a relaxing soak in the tub every once in a while. The set comes with soap bars in different fragrances and each one is wrapped in gorgeous floral print paper too which means they'll also serve as great bathroom decor until you rip into them and indulge. Also, prepare to smile a lil' harder at these things because they made Oprah's Favorite Things list for the second year in a row.

    Some fragrances in this set are Wild Fig, Shea, and Gardenia. Each fragrance is phthalate-free and the entire set is cruelty-free!

    Get it from Amazon for $68. ALSO, peep more of our favorite picks from Oprah's 2019 Favorite Things list.

    7. A touchless trashcan with a motion sensor that'll pop open the lid whenever you want to throw anything away. It also comes with a lemon-scented fragrance cartridge so it'll hold the dirty stinky trash smells in and instead let a citrus-y smell out.


    The trash can runs on an AC adapter (included) or four AA batteries which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "This trash can is just the right size for our bathroom. My purpose in buying it was to have a covered trash can that reduces odor. This can does that. As a bonus, I like the way the bag is held into place such that it never falls down into the can and is not visible from the outside of the can." —Charles Bartlett

    Get it from Amazon for $37.75+ (available in two colors and two sizes).

    8. A three-piece bathroom accessory set with inspirational words on each piece to bring some minimalist decor to your sink. The set comes with a lotion pump, toothbrush holder, and tumbler.


    Get it from Walmart for $14.95 (also available in gray).

    9. A tub drainer to catch all the hair that would normally clog your drain. It'll also be easy (and yea, kinda disgusting) to pluck out and clean when needed.,

    And in case you were wondering, one reviewer did show and share that YES, it'll catch curls too!

    Promising review: "Before using the Tubshroom, I used a flat hair catcher on my tub/shower drain and cleaning it was gross. This one really does the job nicely. When you lift it from the drain, the hair (absent gunk since only hair remains) is caught by the lip. Hence, you can easily remove hair with a tissue. Also, since there are plenty of little drainage holes, it doesn't get moldy compared to a flat hair catcher that covers the top of the drain. The material is soft and easily pliable, thus, fits drain and catches all hair. It's well worth the cost compared to hiring a professional drain cleaner." —Dr. SG

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in six colors).

    10. A color-changing toilet light that'll switch on whenever it detects motion. Now, you don't hurt your eyes or disturb anyone else by turning on a big bright light when tinkle time comes at midnight.

    The light changes to 16 colors. Also, one parent noted that this light was a life (and toilet) -saver for her young son who's still perfecting his aim.

    Promising review: "I freaking love this light. The motion detector is super sensitive and as soon as I walk into my bathroom, it lights up. I hate turning on the light in the middle of the night and I'm also scared of the dark so this is perfect. Also, the colors are awesome!!!" —Ashley Young

    Get it from Amazon for $10.03

    11. A Potty Putter Toilet game in case playtime doesn't end for you just because poo time begins. It'll even come with a "do not disturb" door sign so you can ~really~ focus on getting that hole-in-one. Seriously, this is a really hilarious bathroom accessory to have. It'll come in handy if you ever have people over and just want to keep the party going even when people have to use the toilet. It'll also make for a good gag gift for anyone you know who golfs.


    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    12. An extendable, angular shower scrubber to help you reach every square inch of your tub with no problem. I own this and it helps me clean my shower twice as fast. It won't take up too much space in your bathroom and it'll also be super easy for you to clean the scrubber part. This thing will come in handy for anyone but it's especially a good option for anyone who has neck and/or back pains that prevent them from reaching certain spots in their shower.

    I have asthma so cleaning my bathroom is much more of a task than it is for regular folks. I get winded quickly so I love cleaning products and tools that help me get stuff done faster and easier, which is why this scrubber stick thingy is my JAM. Also, the scrubber part is replaceable so there'll be no buyer's remorse when it wears out from all the scrubbing you're about to do.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 and the scrubber refill for $9.99.

    13. A full-body bath pillow complete with a bath sponge that'll 100% encourage you to stay in the tub until you morph into an actual factual prune. This life-saver is machine washable. It also has 3D cushioning that dries quickly and resists mold so you don't get that nasty mildew smell because, well, that's not cute.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this product! I have whiplash and the pillow provides nice support for my neck while the deluxe model mat provides cushion for my aching back. Additionally, I usually slide down into the tub because I’m short. The pillow and mat provide the support so that doesn’t happen. I have a semi-porous finish on my tub, so it’s very hard to find a pillow that will adhere to that surface. This one has many extra-large suction cups, holding the mat in place. For anyone having trouble with that issue, the trick is to put the mat in before adding the water and press hard on each suction cup. The suction cups are easy to remove. Just empty the tub and slide them... So, all of you bath lovers out there, add your Epsom salts or whatever and relax away!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97.

    14. A mildew-resistant, tech-storing shower liner curtain to hold up tablets and phones from the outside of the bath so you can watch or read without the threat of drowning your devices to their literal death.


    This shower liner supports your bathroom tech needs but won't mess up the vibe you're going for with the bathroom décor since you can still add an outside curtain that fits your aesthetic. All you'll have to do when it's time to insert your gadgets is slide your outside curtain to the side, slip in your phone or tablet, and then you're ready to go!

    Promising review: "What do I like most about this shower curtain? 1. My kids now LOVE taking a bath. They race upstairs and into the bathroom to get first dibs on the shows they will watch or the songs they will pick. The curtain securely holds the iPad while the kids easily navigate through their shows and apps. 2. I LOVE taking a bath. After the kids go to bed, I enjoy reading, listening to music or watching shows on my iPad/Kindle/phone without worrying about getting them damaged by water. The clear curtain allows for easy page-turning and song selection and the sound carries through the curtain well. Bubble bath, wine, and Netflix—yes! 3. It actually works with my sliding glass shower doors. I was able to hang the curtain over the top of the sliding doors and affix the curtain using the included hooks/rings. I may eventually purchase a curtain rod, but it’s quite secure as is. What do I like least? I suppose I wish I knew about this curtain sooner. It would have helped [during] the many nights when I struggled to get the kids to take a bath!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $18.77.

    15. OR, a shower curtain with quick-dry mesh pockets just to keep all your bathroom accouterments ⁠sorted out and easy to find. It'll also save some counter and cabinet space. The many compartments will also be helpful if you have a few family members stay over since they can each have a pocket to store their bathtime stuff.


    Promising review: "This liner may be the most useful product I've ever purchased! It allows you to organize all your various bath products in conveniently sized mesh pockets. The pockets are strong enough to hold full shampoo and conditioner bottles without tearing away from the liner. No more worries about cluttered edges causing things to fall off the sides of the bathtub. No more nasty soap scum from bars of soap resting on the edge of the tub. No more rust circles from cans of shaving cream. It's brilliant!" —G. Allen

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    Check out our full review of the Maytex Quick Dry Pockets Shower Curtain (#2).

    16. A power perch to store all of your electronics in one space and AWAYYYYYY from the water all over your sink.,

    Promising review: "If you have gizmos that need to perch near their outlet (hubs for smart lights, voice assistants, electric toothbrushes or shavers), then this is a great product that elevates these items off the countertop or floor. Installation is easy; the two pieces slide together, you remove the existing outlet cover, and then the new outlet panel provides the holding power for the shelf. If the plugs you have for your devices aren't oversized squares or don't need to share the outlet with a WiFi booster, then this product is 5 star. I had a Wifi booster that had to share the outlet with an oversized plug and it's a little snug but they fit!" —2lilac2

    Get it from Amazon from $5.89+ (available in one- and two-packs and also in black).

    17. A toilet top storage tray with a cute joke that you won't mind being the butt of. Ha!


    Promising review: "It’s everything I hoped it was — made of real wood and a very nice addition to my guest bathroom! It's a great conversation piece too!" —Launi Solomon

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    18. A cup holder that you can trust to hold your drinks securely near your shower because wine (and OK, the alcohol-free stuff too) should always be within arm's reach.


    FYI: Multiple reviewers say they use this cup holder for everything from shampoo bottles to body wash!

    Promising review: "My wife got me this as a Christmas present and I must admit I rolled my eyes when I opened the box. 'That'll never work' I thought to myself. We stuck it on the shower wall that day and have had no issues since. It's still sticking some 60 days later and shows no signs of slipping. It holds beer cans and plastic pint glasses like a boss and for those days when I'm feeling super bourgeois and make a cocktail, but dump it in a Tervis tumbler — it fits too! Shower beers will never be the same again!" —Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in six colors).

    19. An adjustable bamboo bathtub tray to prop up food, drinks, tablets, books, hopes, dreams, and whatever else you'll need for your soak sesh.

    Promising review: "Love this! Nothing beats a long luxurious soak in the tub to relieve the stress of the day and this bath caddy makes it more enjoyable by giving me a safe place to put a glass of wine and my kindle. Bonus: my 5-year-old grandson will now ask to take a bath when he visits me so I can serve him milk and cookies in the tub and he can read his book. Big thumbs up!" —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    20. Kaboom Foam-Tastic Bathroom Cleaner in case you've finally become your mother and have begun to ~actually~ enjoy cleaning your house. It has an OxiClean lemon citrus scent that I use and LOVE for how it attacks the dirt in my bathroom. It'll be your go-to for all things bathroom-related thanks to how fast it cleans and how good it smells (no choking or sneezing here!). You just spray the foam, let it sit, and when the foam turns white, that's how you know it's time to wipe it away along with the dirt. Bonus: The blue-ish/purple-ish foam also just looks super cool.

    I really appreciate how much effort this bathroom cleaner takes out of scrubbing. Since I have asthma so unfortunately, lots of simple activities like cleaning my bathroom can become very strenuous for me and cause me to run out of breath. Kaboom makes my cleaning process much faster and I don't have to work as hard to scrub the dirt out of my bathroom, especially my shower.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.72.

    21. A scalp massager that can turn wash day into a spa day at any time. Amazon reviewers noted that this little buddy worked for their various hair types.

    Reviewers also noted that this scalp massager helped ease dandruff, psoriasis, and generally sensitive scalps.

    Promising review: "This is a great little tool. My daughter and I both have VERY thick hair. Mine is especially difficult because it's curly. I have a combination of type 3A and 3B curly hair. My daughter always had a hard time getting to her scalp with shampoo and conditioner which caused some flaking and dandruff. Since she's been using this, that has stopped. It's made it much easier for both of us to get down to the root shaft. For people saying 'just use your fingernails,' this works better. I've had long and short nails and this still works better. It's easy to grip and clean. No complaints here." —J. Love

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four colors).

    22. A microfiber mop and hands-free wringing bucket set so you can get your floors sparkling clean without burning out all the energy in your body and needing to pass out on the bed afterward. The mop is designed to help you get into corners easily and wring it by just pressing your foot to a pedal on the bucket.


    You can also remove the mop head and it's machine-washable but you might want to snag some back-ups (sold separately) so you can toss the dirty one into the washing machine, leave it for your laundry day, and still have your mop readily available.

    Promising review: "I'm the queen of never mopping because I hate it more than anything else. I will literally only mop maybe once or twice a YEAR. A friend who is a house cleaner recommended I try the O-Cedar Easy Wring mop and bucket. I tried it for the first time today. It's so easy to fill up, carry around with the handle, and wringing it out using the foot pedal is, dare I say, FUN!!! TIP: Hold the handle extremely lightly in your hand so the handle will spin when you wring. I like that I was able to wring more for a drier mop for my laminate and hardwood floors) and wring less for my linoleum and tile that needed a deeper clean. It's easy to dump the water when done. I will definitely be using this mop more frequently than once a year!" —B. Nichols

    Get the Spin Mop system from Amazon for $29.97 and the mop refills for $19.97 (available in a four-pack).

    23. A Mr. Clean Turbo Plunger and Bowl brush caddy set to save more space near your porcelain throne.


    Promising review: "Plungers are a surprisingly difficult thing to buy. You have to make sure they’re sturdy and provide enough suction so that you’re not plunging endlessly to no avail. We’ve had this set for two years and it just works. No matter what the toilet has been clogged with (and I’m a mom of two toddler boys so use your imagination here), this plunger has handled the job masterfully, never requiring more than two to three pushes. The brush is also very functional and sturdy. I’m a huge fan of this set and am actually writing this review as I add a second set to my cart so I can stop shuffling it back and forth between bathrooms." —The Tech Couple

    Get it from Amazon for $14.92.

    24. Murphy & Daughters Bath Salts that'll definitely help relax you after a day you're feeling salty about. Or, of course, after a day that was good but just long as heck. The salts are sun-dried and derived from Australia, and contain ingredients like beta carotene (an antioxidant that protects the skin from damage) and potassium (enhances moisture). Psst... These also made Oprah's Favorite Things list for 2019 so hey, they just may become your favorite thing to splurge on too.

    Murphy & Daughters / Via

    Get them from Amazon for $88 (available in eight scents).

    25. A Flexisnake to dig out all the hair that's been having camp meetings in your drain. It'll be a nasty process but you'll be so happy when water's back to running down your sink like a dream.

    Promising review: "I was in denial about what was clogging my shower drain. Some idiot grouted the grate on top of the drain leaving me at a loss with figuring out how to unclog it. I've tried the pouring stuff down the drain, the hot water, and the leaving it overnight. I still got a shower-foot-bath until I found this. I worked up so much hair out of my drain. It's almost embarrassing to admit. But this is awesome. I would recommend it to friends." —Elisa

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28+ (available in two colors).

    26. Soap scum and grime remover for making sure you leave your oasis sparkling clean so it'll be ready for the next time you retreat there.

    Buzzfeed Editor Mallory McInnis used this cleaner and loves it! Here's her take:

    "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use."

    Get from Amazon for $18.88.

    27. A bathroom squatting stool with a built-in foot massager so you can poop in pure peace.


    WE ALL POOP AND IT'S A GOOD TIME, OK?! Now that that's out of the way, the bathroom squatting stool is meant to make your bowel movement happen easier and faster by elevating your feet so your body is in a squatting position.

    Promising Review: "Everyone needs to raise their feet to 💩and I am not gonna talk about why as I think anyone who is searching for this product is already aware of that. But this one is stylish, warm, and looks pretty unlike a clunky plastic one. I absolutely love it and loveeee that it has a part you can massage your feet on! And the best thing is if you ever throw it in the garbage..., it will not end up poisoning our earth! And it is excellent quality so unless you jump on it, you will not break it. It will last a lifetime." —Derin Deniz

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (also available in white).

    28. A rainfall showerhead so you can have yet another excuse to spend a few extra minutes in the shower singing your heart out. Good vocals sold separately, btw, but at least this fancy-looking thing is under $20!,

    Promising review: "You know how apartment buildings give you that generic shower head that comes with three levels? Well, mine was always slow and low pressure. So, I rotated it some to see if that would help. It did for a while but now its almost three years later and I can't take it anymore. I found this showerhead on Amazon and now I feel like I'm living in a castle lol... This is really a rainfall showerhead. Its pressure is just right... I purchased this showerhead to get my shower full benefits. I stay in the shower longer. It covers my head fully when washing it so no more leaning to one side lol. Very nice for the price!" —Denis I.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    29. The Spatty Daddy mini-spatula will scoop up the last little bit of lotion or shower gel easier when it runs super low and you haven't had time to re-up. This way, you can still breeze through your bedtime or getting ready routine.


    Promising review: "LOVE THIS! I’m a cheapskate so I love being able to reach every last drop of lotion, shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc... It's totally worth the ten bucks. It’s just a tiny spatula with a loooooong stem." —Mmancc11399

    Get it from Amazon for $9.25.

    30. CLSEVXY Facial Cleansing Brush to remove makeup, gently exfoliate the skin, dig out blackheads, and reduce the look of fine lines. $100 Clarisonic brush — but this one is on Amazon for a jaw-dropping price and it includes four brush heads and two speed settings! Gahhhh, if you don't dunk this thing in your cart, you better! You're not going to want to leave your bathroom after standing in the mirror playing with this relaxing thing.


    It operates on two AA batteries which are sold separately.

    Promising review: "First off, I love that this product comes with four different brush options and is waterproof! The instructions clearly explain what each brush head is used for! It’s super soft on your skin and provides a nice, even, and thorough cleanse! I’m so glad I purchased this product... It does everything I expected it too and does it very well!! It’s a great product for a very reasonable price. I love that it comes in a storage case and is battery-operated!! What a great buy!!" —Stephw.92

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

    31. A tic tac toe toilet paper holder to bring the fun and games to the best room in the house. (Btw, if you get drunk one night and ~actually~ decide to play tic tac toe with your tissue rolls and these x's PLEASE return to this post and spill the tea on how much fun that was.)

    Etsy / PleasntHillCreations

    Promising review: "We are very happy with this purchase! We received the item within just a few days of purchasing and it came well packaged. The X’s were secure in the box and the entire structure had padding around it. It is well made and looks perfect in our bathroom! Will definitely recommend to friends, thank you!" —Shannon Halbleib

    Get it from the PleasntHillCreations shop on Etsy for $98.95 (available in four color choices for the X's and four wood stain color choices).
