Always a controversial topic, especially if there is only one bathroom!
To avoid the uncomfortable conversations later, maybe try and work out some specific bathroom times, especially in the morning and most flatmates have to be off for work at the same time.
Might be worth limiting shower times as well, especially over the cooler months. Hot showers can greatly contribute to the electricity bill. We don’t want anyone thinking that someone else is responsible for the “through the roof” power bill!
Is there any bathroom etiquette already in place? If a new flatmate is coming on board, could be good time to set some ground rules.
We were going to give this one it’s own post, but at the end of the day, it’s a no-brainer!
Most people have been in the situation where they have been left stranded. A quick fix to this problem is to leave spare toilet rolls within arms reach of the toilet.
If the household has a roster, maybe add a “check toilet roll” chore.
Males, take note!
If you’re living with females, don’t forget to return the toilet seat to the down position! Females notice these things…
It’s also a feng-shui thing 🙂
