Clean toothbrush for healthy smiles. First, store your toothbrush properly to ensure you keep it-and its user-as germ-free as possible. Be sure to keep it up on a countertop, away from the sink and toilet to prevent airborne contamination from splashing water. Also, don't store toothbrushes together in close quarters (a toothbrush cup in a cabinet, for example).
If you feel it’s time to update your bathroom but are short on cash, then here are some excellent tips for getting that fresh look and feel without breaking the bank:
1. Paint it fresh – Adding a lick of paint to a tired, grubby bathroom that has seen better days can work wonders for the atmosphere and look. For a great contemporary look, choose a bright colour for a feature wall and buy new towels and accessories to match the bold colour, or go for a funky wall covering on one wall with a neutral paint colour in the rest of the space.
Let's be honest, bathroom is the main place we spend all of our mornings. Nice look of your bathroom makes you feel happy and put you in a good mood. Here are five great tips to brighten up your bathroom and make every visit a pleasure and at the same time add value to your home.

One of the smallest yet most used rooms in almost every home is the bathroom. Unless you were fortunate enough to design your own home, you probably have struggled with trying to find enough room to keep everything in the bathroom that needs to be there. In addition to extra towels and toilet tissues, medications, creams, toothpaste and hair products all need a spot they can call home. A bathroom space saver can increase the storage in any bathroom in just a few minutes. They are easy to install and very affordable.
Home improvement stores are a great place to begin the search for one of these handy items. They can be purchased in kits or already assembled. A bathroom space saver kit is generally less expensive and not hard to assemble and mount on the wall. In the case of a bathroom space saver that has already been put together, the only requirement is to hang it up.
