More Bathroom Differences

Oooh, I forgot a lot yesterday.  How about privacy?  When should the bathroom door be closed and locked?  Is it ok for someone to be in the bathroom when someone is showering?  Should the door be closed or left open when no one is in the room?  
 Many cultures wash with soap only; they don’t use washcloths or net scrubbies.  Ask if your student uses something else, and let the student know where it can be stored.  Some cultures use more products than we do.  How many US families use tongue scrapers daily? 
Is it ok for the student to use the family shampoos, bath gels, soap bars, toothpaste, razor blades, deodorant?  I’ve always supplied the students with personal products unless they use something specific that is super expensive. Sorry, but I’m not supplying Minoxidil for a normal teenage girl. 
Explain everything in detail to the student.  I had a student use ‘Head & Shoulders’ shampoo as bath gel until I noticed the bottle was emptying too quickly.   He had a point; it did state ‘shoulders’.  I think it would’ve been a bit tingly for all-over washing.
