Stock Your Bathroom Like an Adult

If you’re reading this, you’re probably an adult. Mazel Tov! Among the many responsibilities of being a fully-functioning adult, having a well-stocked bathroom is one that no one prepares you for. Thankfully, we’ve compiled this handy list of things you should have in your bathroom at all times.


Your days of buying toilet paper a week after the last roll ended are officially over. Always keep an extra pack in the cabinet for emergencies. This rule applies even if you have one of those fancy bidets.


This one is non-negotiable and needs no explanation. Body soap and hand soap are two separate things. It still counts if you steal it from a fancy hotel, but just know that we’re judging you.


No one wants to wipe their hands on a towel that’s still damp from your shower. Get a separate hand towel for the sink to keep everyone from guessing the last time your bath towel saw the inside of a washing machine.


If you want to know how much hair goes into your drain, consider getting a drain screen. While the steady buildup of hair might freak you out, this is a good way to keep your drain from slowing down.


If you’re noticing more than a few stray hairs running down the drain, it might be time to invest in good hair conditioner. This will protect your hair and help keep it strong and shiny.


You see, with a little bit of effort, that gross soap scum in your tub actually comes off. Grab a stiff brush and lots of Scrubbing Bubbles® and start scrubbing. Then call your mom and tell her you’re sorry.


Your bathroom mirror collects a lot of residue from steam, toothpaste and saliva. A quick wipe with Windex® will keep your mirror sparkling and your reflection sharp.


Get Glade® to keep your bathroom fresh and clean, and give the impression that you actually have your life together. To feel like an adultier adult, get a Glade® candle instead.


A plunger is one of those things you hope you never need but are grateful to have, when you do. Trust us.


Having Drano® in your cabinet is like having insurance for the worst things that can happen in your bathroom. Baking soda and vinegar aren’t designed to clear clogs. DRANO® is made to drain. It's guaranteed to take care of clogged drains and those terrible times when there’s standing water around your ankles. We recommend Drano® Max Gel for slow drains and complete clogs, while Drano® Max Build-Up Remover is the perfect remedy for a slow-running toilet.

Being an adult may seem hard, but Drano® will keep your life and your drains flowing smoothly. Now that you have this list, feel free to host dinner parties and board-game nights, and prepare for handwritten thank you cards from your roommates. If you still live with your parents, your bathroom probably has all this stuff, so bookmark this article for future reference.
