Bathroom Rules and Etiquette Signs

Jun 23, 2010

Last fall we posted about Harvard grad students’ bathroom etiquette rules, some of them being so obvious that people questioned their necessity. It seems that everyone, whether it be at work, at home, or in any public bathroom, has been guilty of violating bathroom etiquette. Whether it be leaving the toilet seat up at home, or forgetting to flush, there are so many ways to offend the other bathroom users.

A search on the web for “bathroom rules” found a wide variety of signs and postings regarding bathroom rules and etiquette. Here are some of these signs that remind us to use these shared facilities with consideration.

    ”If its dirty clean it!” People who are too lazy to clean up after themselves are terribly selfish.

    I definitely can give the second to last set to my roommate. Every time I go to the bathroom, the toilet paper roll is empty!

    These are funny but sooo true! A clean bathroom leads to clean results. Safety and health are key when it comes to the bathroom. Ya never know what can happen.. But why do the signs look so girly? They need to be posted in a men’s restroom as well :)

    The best way to get your point across is with a little humor, I always say. These are absolutely awesome! I have one in my bathroom that’s also funny that I found at a flea market.

    Betty- Those are GREAT! I wonder if I could make my own sign. I’ve looked at local stores like Ross and Target, and they don’t have anything like these. Anyone have suggestions?

    Bathroom etiquette i want to say can be somewhat regional. Although there are a wide variety of different manners one would consider ettiquette.

  15. Molly - October 13th, 2011 at 5:11 am

    That’s true! I think some things are universal, like change the toilet paper roll when empty and wash your hands. I love Betty’s rules too!

    Although most of the things said on toilet signs are really obvious, still people don’t obey the rules. You constantly see pee stains all over the seats which means they didn’t lift the seat up or toilets not being flushed. I believe because of toilets signs quirky designs they often give off the idea that it is not serious, thus leading to people ignoring them. If toilet signs were to be successful and not overlooked i think a little threat down the bottom is necessary, even if false at least their is a sense of fear in the person that if they disobey the rules, they could get caught or fined, prompting them to do the right thing.

    I was compelled to contribute to the discussion as the
    article really brought back some emotion inside me.

    Perhaps these issues can be applied within other industries too, such as the cleaning industry.

    I wouldn’t like to say my opinion on this in a public forum, my comments could easily offend some people.

    Oh well, back to cleaning my home I suppose, but I did enjoy this article a lot.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera.

    Exceptional Blog!
