10 Mental Health Benefits of a Clean Bathroom


I think you can all agree with me when I say that the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the house and also the one that needs a little extra attention when it comes to cleaning. Why extra attention you might ask. Well, the added moisture and humidity in the bathroom can contribute to the growth of bacteria and mold, making a dirty bathroom a true health hazard. Plus, if you’re anything like me and you love to relax after a busy day by taking a long bath, you need to make sure your bathroom is spick and span, otherwise, your relaxation moment will be just a dream.

I know, cleaning is a tendentious chore but if you think at the health and mental health benefits that come from it, you will understand why it’s so important to keep your home and especially your bathroom clean at all times.

If you still don’t believe me, here are 10 mental health benefits of a clean bathroom.

Less mess means less stress

I don’t know about you, but when my bathroom is messy I feel really anxious and uncomfortable. For me messy means dirty, even if I know that the room is clean and that’s why I always make sure to put everything back after I use it and I asked my family to do the same.

We all know how children are and how they throw their stuff all over the place, but slowly they’re starting to learn that being tidy is much better and that makes me happy.

More harmony in the family

We’ve all been there I think! When someone lets the wet towel on the floor or the toothpaste on the sink and so on. It’s nasty, it’s frustrating and it can lead to fights in the family. By cleaning and making sure things are organized all the time these situations won’t happen anymore and that can only bring harmony to the family.

You’re more motivated

After you give your bathroom a good cleaning and scrubbing and you see everything shining and looking good, don’t you have the feeling that you need to do the same for the other rooms of the house? I do! When I see just how good everything looks, I want to do more and have the same feeling for the whole house.

You get to be more active

If you’re too busy to go to the gym, consider cleaning your bathroom like your daily workout. Sounds funny? Well, if you think of how much work it requires, you’d know that I’m right. The activities involved in cleaning a house not only give you peace of mind but also keeps you physically fit.

You’ll feel better when people come over

Be honest with me, did you ever excused yourself for your messy bathroom when you had guests over? I did and it felt terrible. By keeping your bathroom tidy and clean, you’ll feel more confident and you can stop feeling anxious every time a guest wants to use your bathroom.

You can sit back and relax

As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, I love to unwind and relax in a hot bath at the end of the day. It’s my much-desired me time when I just sit back and relax. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to do that if my bathroom was a mess and that’s why it’s extremely important for me to have it clean at all times.

Good health means good mental health

In my opinion, a bathroom can become quite a health hazard if it’s not cleaned on time. Keeping your bathroom sterile and clean by using disinfecting sprays or wipes on high-touch surfaces is a great way to minimize the growth of bacteria. For my floors, I always use my vax steamer because I want to know they’re clean and germ-free. Talking about vax steamers, Spares2You have a brilliant range of parts for Vax Steamers to help maintain your bathroom floors.

You’ll sleep better

Whenever my house is messy, my head gets busy and I can’t sleep anymore. To avoid this, I always make sure that by the end of the day everything is clean and organized. You have no idea what a difference it makes to be able to go to bed with a clear mind and with the feeling that when you’ll wake up in the morning you can enjoy your first cup of coffee in a clean home.

You’ll feel accomplished

You really can’t beat this feeling. Knowing that your hard work is done and that you did it, it’s a great boost of confidence.

Cleaning is therapy

Knowing that you can be in control and you can transform something messy and dirty into something wonderful makes you feel great! Do you know that feeling that you can conquer the world? Well, something like that!

Cleaning the bathroom can be an overwhelming task, but making it a priority and keeping on top of it can bring you some great health and mental health benefits, so keep your attitude positive and go for that feeling that you can conquer the world!
