Despite all the effort single men put into their appearance and hygiene so they can succeed in the dating game, the one aspect many dudes are lacking is a solid bathroom game.
Gussy up all you want but people can tell if you’re a grub by the state of your bathroom. After living with a bunch of single men for years, I can say that I’m not surprised many of them stayed single for a long time.
If prospective partners weren’t frightened off by the unclean toilet, the hair-covered sink did the trick.
So in an attempt to help single men expand their hygiene skills beyond just what happens on their face, here are some things to keep in mind for the next time you bring a date home and they need to use the bathroom.
Clean up all beard and pube shavings
Credit to all the single men who make a concerted effort to keep their face and downstairs tidy.
But for the love of god wash away all beard and pube shavings. It’s not just to appease prospective partners either as no one – and I mean no one – wants to see pubes scattered across the toilet seat or beard trimmings littering the sink and floor
Speaking of the floor…
Clean the damn floor
Dust, hair and bodily fluids accumulate on the bathroom floor at alarming rates, particularly if you’re a grub who doesn’t watch where they piss or shave.
Do yourself and everyone a favour and keep the floors clean and piss free. The last thing your partner or housemate needs is stepping into a puddle of urine mixed in your your beard trimmings in the middle of the night.
No poop stains in the toilet
Do I really need to explain this one?
And keep the toilet seat clean while you’re at it. The amount of piss that gets gathered under it is alarming.
Toothbrushes and mould don’t belong in the shower
I get that some people like to multitask and brush their teeth in the shower, even if it may not be the best way of maintaining dental hygiene. But the thought of all that water rolling off someone’s sweaty body and onto the toothbrush is too much to take, especially when they’re placed below waist height.
But even more than toothbrushes marinating in day-old shower water is mould. How on earth are you meant to keep yourself clean when the main cleaning apparatus is filthier than you are?
Scrub those shower walls like your would yourself for everyone’s sake, please.
