    Nice post. Some of these tips are really good. I really agree with the first two. These are basic bathroom etiquette points that husbands should really be doing in the first place.

    question, do you do all of the things you list? Just wondering.

  2. Eric says:

    Good question. I do everything except washing the bath rug (I think it would fall apart if I wash it. Maybe I’ll just buy a nice new one. This one is from our old house.) and swapping the hand towels. I’m improving on swapping out the used empty toilet paper rolls.

  3. Kate says:

    Yeah, that would impress me.

    My husband has got points 1 to 6 down pat so I figure the last three aren’t worth quibbling about.

  4. Eric says:

    True. True. Unless of course he wanted to impress you again. The last three are more for impressing than etiquette.

  5. Grace says:

    Great post!! Now how many men will really stick to all of these?? Here’s hoping more of them would be adorable enough to follow these simple rules! =)

    Visiting from COFL!

  6. Bill says:

    A better question, how many women do 2-5? Yes a man should do these things but this doesnt mean the wife is off the hook especially numbers 2 and 3.

    I just wish parents would start teaching this to boys at a young age. Just today, my daughter fell into the toilet because the boy before her didn’t put the seat down. I’m not kidding! LOL!

    Thank you for joining us at the Carnival of Family Life!

  8. Eric says:

    Bill, yeah but from experiences i.e. myself men need more work.

    Kailani, that is pretty funny. I think that happened to my daughter a couple of times.

    1.You need the seat down, I ‘need’ the seat up(it’s just better for everyone that way). Learn to look before you sit. I don’t just cruise in at night and take a leak in the dark without checking to see if the lid is down (anymore), and seriously, do you think men don’t sit down when they take a dump? I haven’t been duped by the old porcelain pool since I was three. Pay attention. If ‘looks’ is the thing you’re worried about, the lid should be put down everytime, but I don’t know many women who do this either – they just want the seat to be ready and greeting them.
    2. Women use WAY more toilet paper than men, so it stands to reason that women use up the last of the TP a GRAND MAJORITY of the time. Yet this is a big complaint. Apparently a load of women don’t take care of this problem either. Further, the roll often only has enough paper left on it for a reasonable person to wipe a bad scene, so often men put out the new roll for their partners before the other is done as not to waste TP. You are already sitting there, what’s the big deal about swapping out that roll right next to you.
    3-5 These rules are for everybody, and I’d say there’s a 55-45 split between men and women for people who don’t do this. Seriously, many single AND married women just don’t do these things enough or at all.
    6 See previous, but with a bigger split – you women with mustaches know who you are.
    7-9 See 3-5

    Find me a woman who does 1(seat down)- 9 consistently, regardless of the rest of her life woes, and I’ll really be impressed. Or refer her to a specialist. Whatever.

  10. Eric says:

    The thing is, men arent really impressed by these things. So if a women follows all these steps chances are the husband wont even notice.

    Great feedback! Thanks for the thorough comment.

    Hey there, Just wanted to know if you would consider submitting this into a student magazine in Albany, Auckland, New Zealand called Satellite Magazine. I think it is a great message, that our students need to know. I’m not the editor but the website is for the mag is and I’m sure they would put your weblink in the mag ūüôā

  12. Eric says:

    Hey Tom thanks for the suggestion. I’ll give it a try.

  13. the king says:

    what the hell it is man! this is not our job to do all these things this is our wife’s job and she should do this all before we ask her to do it. Husbend is not a sweeper to maintain the bathroom! well it is a little useful if your wife is lazy or if she dose’nt love you.

    Hello webmaster
    I would like to share with you a link to your site
    write me here

  15. I realize that this post is two years old, but thank you for it anyway. And, men, this doesn’t end. There is little worse than going into a dark bathroom at 3am and sitting down on a freezing cold pee covered rim.

  16. Jo says:

    Nobody stands up in my house to pee, wiping off toliet rim doesn’t get it. How about the walls and the floor from splash. We are only in the 2nd generation of modern indoor bathrooms. I don’t think anybody has been taught to use them properly. If you have to stand and pee all over then go outside.

  17. annie briere says:

    How about the husband who-doesn’t flush after each”outing.” Or the one who leaves spittle in the sink,or doesn’t really freshen the air after a smelly dump?

  18. Bob says:

    Woman want the seat down ‘cos of the splashes they leave under the seat that you see when the seat is up, just as bad as the mess on the rim, anyway its best to sit at night when its dark and its too easy to miss, when we get older and it takes longer who wants to stand and wait better to sit and wait I say.
    In our house its me who likes the hair removed from the plug hole, the floor clean, the shower clean, the sink shinny, the toilet roll replaced and the old core biffed, women aren’t as tidy as they want us to believe, they can’t see cob webs and if they do they believe they compliment the broom stick stood in the corner.
    Any one want a sink splash back with a difference have a look at, perceptionpanels.blogspot

    Ok I got the blog address wrong it needs a dot com on the end

  20. Marie says:

    These are good tips for anyone, not just men. Also, what is with the ‘since you haven’t used the washer since college?’ Are men really supposed to be that incompetent? How do you think they lived alone. My husband would ask me if I thought he was retarded if I showed him this.

  21. I think that everything said was actually very reasonable.
    But, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier post
    title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added something
    that makes people desire more? I mean Nine Bathroom Etiquette Tips to Impress Your Wife
    or Girlfriend is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s front page and
    see how they create news titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  22. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of
    your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest
    writers to write content for you? I wouldn’t mind creating a post or elaborating
    on a few of the subjects you write in relation to here.
    Again, awesome website!
