Problem solved: bathroom phone holders

A place to put your phone in the bathroom may be a modern, little problem, but it’s easily solved. Check out these no-drill ways to keep your phone safe and sound while tending to your bathroom routines.

Wish you had a bathroom phone holder? You can easily make one with IKEA products like BUMERANG trouser/skirt hanger. Put your phone in a plastic bag. Zip it closed. Clip it on the hanger. You’re all set, and your phone is protected from steam.

Bag, clip, hang, done! Grab a resealable plastic bag that fits your phone. Close it tightly to lock out steamy moisture. Clip it on a hanger. Now you won’t miss a call. And yes, you can use a phone through the bag. (We tried it.)

Later, toothbrush. It’s a home for your phone now. The secret’s in the suction cups. Each toothbrush holder has one, so it’s simple to stick onto glass, mirrors or tiles. Add some labels to mark whose phone is whose. Bonus: the holders amplify sound, so your tunes can join you.

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
