Skillopedia - Bathroom Etiquette – 08 essential etiquette rules you should follow.
The bathroom is probably the least talked about place. That’s because what you do in there is your personal business. Of course it is! But what you may not know is that there are certain etiquettes or behavior that you must follow even when you’re in there. And even though no one is WATCHING!!! So let’s see what you must keep in mind:

Ditch your cell phone
It is more polite to the person on the other end of the phone if they didn’t hear any loud echoing flushing noises while they were having a conversation with you. In fact, even other people visiting the bathroom don’t want to hear your “talk” which you are doing your “business”. It’s just plain rude. Moreover, you may also be prone to accidentally dropping you phone in the commode-something that you may never recover from and your phone insurance may probably never cover. So the thumb rule is –save your cell phone calls for later.
Clean up after yourself
Treat every bathroom, whether you’re at work or a house guest, as if it were your own bathroom. Splashed water around the sink? Grab a tissue and wipe it up! Used a seat cover? Make sure it's properly flushed away. This removes any lingering evidence of what you have done while you were in there. You can also use the bathroom fan in a private home.
Make spare rolls available
If you use the last of the toilet paper, always make sure spare rolls are available. If they are not, contact the administration employee about it. If you can’t do that, at least be polite enough to warn the next person about to head into the stall.
Refrain from having long conversations
Most people don’t think of the bathroom as a place to have great conversations. Please limit your conversations to only friendly greetings like a “Hello” or a “good morning”.
Give the inside scoop
If you have guests staying overnight, give them details about how to get hot or cold water. Some people are not very good at operating bathroom devices. Remember- a blast of cold water is never welcome. So let people know how the geyser and shower work. This will save them a lot of embarrassment and irritation.
Don’t use bath towels
If you’re a guest, to reach for the hand towel to dry your hands. Don’t use your guest’s bath towels. If you don't see a hand towel available for general use, speak up and ask, or grab a paper towel from the kitchen.
If you are not using a squat toilet, you have no reason to squat on the toilet seat. You can injure yourself if you fall or actually break the commode. And that wouldn’t be a very nice sight.
Look before you enter
Not all bathroom door locks close or secure properly. Sometimes, you want to pee very badly. However, you need to resist the temptation quickly pushing at a communal stall door. Always take a moment to look under the door for feet. Then you won't run into any embarrassing situations!
