Journey to Essentialism: Bathroom

This was one of the easier areas to minimize. I didn’t have much to begin with. The major change I made in this area is the creation of all the products I use. I now only use handmade shampoo, toothpaste, & body soap. Again this came down to the number of chemicals and other things that were in the past products I used. The ‘micro-beads’ and other materials found in body scrubs (and even toothpaste) were becoming a major issue. Thanks to President Obama, and a bi-partisan bill, distributing products with this type of material will be illegal starting Jan 1st, 2018 (house bill).

Here are my bathroom essentials:

  • 1 Bath Sheet

  • 1 Wash Cloth
  • 1 Bamboo toothbrush
  • 1 Beard trimmer
  • 1 Homemade shampoo
  • 1 Homemade soap bar
  • 1 Homemade toothpaste
  • 1 Contact case
  • 1 Contact solution
  • 1 Shower curtain
  • 1 Rug
  • Toilet paper
