Sharing a bathroom can be frustrating because it is the most personal and one of the most used rooms in the house. We would like to share with you some bathroom pet-peeves that you should definitely avoid if you share your bathroom with anyone, if you’re visiting anyone or if you plan on having people over at your place.
Not replacing the toilet roll: We’ve all been there when we rush in to use the toilet and there isn’t any toilet roll available, which inevitably leads to a call or walk of shame to retrieve toilet paper. Don’t be that person, the silent rule states that he who finishes the toilet paper gets to replace it immediately.
Clothing and Towels being left on the floor: Because the bathroom is the busiest room in the house, keeping things on the floor heavily inconveniences the next person. Even worse is if the clothes on the floor are dirty (which most likely it is) it ends up stinking up the entire space. Let’s also keep in mind that bathrooms are some of the smallest spaces in the house so cleanliness is paramount.
Not Flushing the toilet: No one appreciates stepping into the bathroom and finding it unclean, let alone seeing someone’s gift left unflushed. It’s uncouth and if left for too long ends up stinking up the entire house.
Leaving personal items scattered over the countertop: Makeup, shaving accessories, deodorants, hair bands and hairbrushes can become very messy when not put in an orderly manner. And products like makeup and such end up leaving marks on the counter that dirty up the place.
Wet Towels in the bathroom: Wet towels left in the bathroom end up forming molds. It’s important your towels are left out to air dry or are thrown in the drying machine.
Bathroom Hoggers: Don’t stay in the bathroom for too long by being on the phone or taking all the time in the world when others are waiting to use it. It’s especially important if you have roommates and you share the same bathroom, stay clear of hogging the bathroom during peak periods like mornings or right after work.
Littering your hair: No one, I repeat, no one likes seeing hair littered all over the place. Pick up after yourself and ensure your hair isn’t lying around.
The bathroom is a very important room in the house and because it’s such a personal space, it is expected that it is left clean at all times. Don’t be the person that makes other people uncomfortable or even unable to use the bathroom. Avoiding these pet-peeves helps keep sanity in the area.
