Bacteria are hiding everywhere, not only in the drains; they’re around the toilet, in the sink, in the bathtub, across the curtains, in the joints between the tiles, even in the toilet paper and the head of the shower.  In the prevailing part of the cases, it is exactly the bacteria which cause the unpleasant stench in the premises, which, unfortunately, won’t disappear with the placing of a couple of aromatizers.  Thereby, instead of concealing the dirty face of your bathroom, clean it regularly and mercilessly. Expel the bacteria from the shower The morning shower in combination with a cup of strong coffee makes the energetic bound for the start of the filled with engagements and tasks day.  But do you have any idea that the shower is the ideal incubator for bacteria which will pour down on you when you turn on the tap and which will disperse in the air, and you will continue to inhale them long after you are done with the shower.  Bacteria around the shower are 100 times more than they are in the water.  The good news, however, is that the people with comparatively stable immune systems are exposed to less significant health hazards.  Those with worse immunity, the pregnant women, the elderly people and people suffering from some diseases, fall into the endangered quota.  The symptoms for a health problem due to absorbed bacteria may vary, but generally they can be described as coughing, intermittent breathing, fatigue and weakness.
