The bathroom is above all a place of relaxation where you take care of yourself, but unfortunately, it can quickly turn into a nightmare if the place you are not vigilant enough about the different domestic risks that can occur there. Whether you or your children, the bathroom can be dangerous if you do not take any precautions, then focus all your safety and that of your people and avoid missteps.
Do not let hang electrical appliances connected to the side of the bath
