So you are about to move into your first apartment, but want to make sure your bathroom is well equipped with all the supplies. From obvious products like towels and toilet paper to first aid kits and personal care items, you need to consider as much as possible to ensure your bathroom has everything you need – at all times. Here is a bathroom checklist for your first apartment to help out.
Personal Care Items For Your Everyday Needs
All your personal care items should always be on hand when you need them so use this checklist to stock up on the essentials.
- Soap and body wash
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Hand and body lotion
- Shaving cream and shaving accessories
- Toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and mouthwash
- Toothbrush holder
- Nail file and/or nail clippers
- Toilet paper and cotton balls
- Menstrual products
- Combs and brushes
- Hairdryers, curling irons and hair straighteners
This checklist should also include any products you use specifically like lip balm, leave-in hair conditioners, hair sprays and other personal care items for your needs.
Medication and First Aid Items
Safety should always be a key priority, which is why you’ll want to make sure your bathroom is stocked with important medication and first aid items.
- Different size bandages and wraps
- Cleaning wipes and antiseptic ointments
- Gauze dressings
- Gloves and hand sanitizer
- Standard First Aid Kid
- Cold, cough and flu medication
- Required Medications
Once again, the medication you store may be dependent on you and your family. For example, if someone in your family requires inhalers for asthma and other breathing conditions, you may want to store a few extra just in case.
Be sure to keep products out of reach of children and in a safe place in accordance with instructions of any applicable items.
