How to Survive Communal Bathrooms
Anyone who has ever spent a week at camp knows that communal bathrooms can be tricky and privacy can literally go out the shower curtain. Unless you had 30 siblings growing up, you have probably never shared a bathroom with this many people. Most likely, a crowded communal bathroom is not a somewhere you want to spend a lot of time, so having the right resources will help make your experience faster and more efficient.

Do not ever underestimate the power of a good shower caddy. Metal or plastic mesh baskets work great because they are easy to carry, drain water, and are easy to dry off. A compartmentalized caddy is especially useful because it helps keep your toiletries organized and will save you from searching around for your conditioner while shampoo is starting to run in your eyes. Large shampoo bottles make the caddy heavier and can easily fall out. Consider buying empty travel size bottles and refilling them with your soap and shampoo as needed. Not only will it lighten your load, but it will also save yourself the embarrassment of having to pick up all the toiletries that just rolled out of your caddy and down the dorm hall.

The one good and bad thing about communal bathrooms is the fact that you do not have to clean them. On one hand it saves you the trouble of getting on your hands and knees and utilizing your scrubbing skills. On the other hand, you don’t know when that shower floor was last cleaned. This dilemma can be solved with two words: shower shoes. A good pair of rubber flip-flops can protect you from the bacteria and fungus that may be living in the showers. You do not have to pay a lot for a good pair, just make sure that they fully cover your feet, are easy to clean, and have a non-slip bottom.

During your dorm living experience, you will spend a lot of time walking from your room to the bathroom, so the importance of owning a good bathrobe should not be underestimated. The best bathrobes are made out of terrycloth, which are easy to put on right out of the shower since the absorbent material helps you dry off faster. Terry cloth is also a durable material that will help keep you warm but also comfortable. Try to find a bathrobe with pockets, which allow you to carry things that you don’t want to get wet, like your room keys.
