Get rid of the Ick
The medicine cabinet houses all kinds of spillable liquids from foundation to shaving cream. Start fresh: Take everything out and wipe it all down—shelves, bottles, makeup containers. Throw away any expired over-the-counter meds and dried-out makeup. While you’re at it, don’t make these bathroom cleaning mistakes.
Move out your meds
Oh the irony: The medicine cabinet is actually one of the worst places to store prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Medications best maintain their effectiveness when stored at room temperature under dry conditions—and most bathrooms become steamy saunas whenever the shower runs. Find a shelf or drawer in the bedroom or kitchen (but not near the stove), out of reach of children and pets. Now your drugs will stay potent, and you’ve got the medicine cabinet space you need for bathroom essentials.
