The bathroom is in many ways the most dangerous room of the house. You should make sure that you are doing everything you can to keep it in the best possible state of safety, and that you remember to keep it hut and locked whenever not in use.

With the bathroom safe, you are much more likely to be able to keep your children safe in the home too, so this is an important one to watch out for.
