Bathroom etiquetteWe all know that you have to wash thoroughly your hands after you’ve done your business. We’ve been taught to this, since we’ve been children. Well, there are some not so obvious rules. And the subject of bathroom etiquette is not commented often. So here we’ve managed to collect some of the most not-so-common manners. Check out these advices:
