It works on batteries and mains power, so whilst using batteries I cant see why not. Not sure of how the steam in the bathroom would damage/harm the radio though.

Thank you for your question.

After contacting a local store, I can inform you that in order to perform a factory re-set on the Argos Value Range Portable Digital DAB/FM Radio - White you will need to: unplug the power supply and/or remove batteries. Power is off, then power back on. Press and hold the DAB/FM key until you see 'press enter key' and to reset simply press the enter key. Let it be noted that performing the factory reset will cause you to lose all stored presets.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
