Have you ever thought about the danger when you take a bath? The United States Civil Affairs Safety Commission has investigated and found that household accidents have become the fifth leading cause of death, among which bathroom injuries** are common. This danger is also worthy of attention in our country.

1. There is water everywhere. The flow of water from the sink and shower is everywhere, which is easy for people to slip and fall, which is the number one danger.

Solution: ** It is better to replace the shower curtain with a shatter-resistant glass door, or put the shower curtain in the bathtub. Best choice for bathroom tiles is small, non-slip. Place anti-slip mats in front of the sink and beside the bathtub, but it should be noted that if the anti-slip mats are easy to move, people will trip over, so try to choose the bottom of the suction cup.

2. Daily necessities dripping. If shampoo, body wash, shaving cream, toothpaste, etc. drip on the ground, the ground will become slippery.

Solution: Clean the soapy water on the floor and bathtub in time after bathing. The elderly have poor balance and are prone to fall. Therefore, families with elderly people should install handrails around bathtubs and toilets.

3. The color of the tiles is too white. White lights, white walls, and mirror reflections can easily make people dizzy when taking a bath. The dazzling light can also affect vision, especially for the elderly. If the bathroom is too bright, it will be difficult for them to detect water on the ground and increase slipping. The odds.

Solution: Replace ordinary bulbs with frosted ones to reduce glare. Paste a row of tiles of other colors or textures on the white wall to help the human body maintain balance. People with poor eyesight, poor direction, and vertigo should keep the wall color in sharp contrast.

4. Discharger in the bathroom. Hair dryers, razors, heaters, etc. in the bathroom will increase the risk of electric shock for people in a humid environment. Towels, toilet paper, etc. may also catch fire due to them.

Solution: If you are afraid of the cold, you can put hot water in advance to preheat the bathroom; electric appliances such as hair dryers should be placed outside the bathroom.

5. Improper installation of the glass shower door. In 2009, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission reported nearly 2,000 cases of glass doors shattered due to improper installation.

Solution: Do not install a towel rack on the glass door. Regularly check the glass shower door for cracks, nicks, or signs of friction with metal. If the glass door or mirror is broken, cover the glass ballast with a large towel before disposing of it to avoid danger.
