This Airbnb host has very specific rules for using the bathroom.
Twitter user Ian Hickton wrote that he rented an Airbnb Friday, July 12, and in the home was a lengthy sheet of bathroom etiquette guests were expected to follow.
“Actual house rules from the Airbnb I stayed at last night,” part of the tweet read, along with a photo of the typed list of guidelines.
The rules mostly asked for the bathroom user to keep the space dry – including using the sink “without splashing the mirror,” using a bathmat when taking a shower or using the sink, and to squeegee the shower after use, as well as use a special towel to dry the inside of the shower.
Though the instructions were comprehensive about drying the bathroom, those on Twitter took most issue with the toilet portion.
“The purpose of the toilet brush is to remove any signs of your passenger, of whatever color, from inside the toilet (above and below the water line), from the toilet rim, and from the underside of the toilet seat. The use of the toilet brush is not optional. Please make sure you do not leave any traces of your passage,” the rules read, before asking men to sit down for both “number one and for number two.”
Twitter users were quick to call out the phrasing – and the overall amount of rules the Airbnb host issued for the bathroom.
On Twitter, Hickton revealed there were many more rules for the house, though he did not share specifics.
