Cleaning your own bathroom is a major ballache so scrubbing someone else’s is definitely a no-no. But one Airbnb host determined to keep their toilet spick and span has advised their guests how to do the same. Ian Hickton shared the long list of rules left for him when he stayed at a property. Strangely, the instructions tell the guest to keep the bathroom as dry as possible, wiping down the mirrors, the washbasin, and the floor. Even the rule which makes the most sense – don’t leave skid marks on the toilet – is worded weirdly. It read: ‘Remove any signs of your passage, of whatever colour, from inside the toilet (above and below the waterline), from the toilet rim, and from the underside of the toilet seat.’ Okay then. That’s just for the bathroom (Picture: Twitter/Ian Hickton) The host clearly didn’t want to see any evidence of water being used in the bathroom as they left details for cleaning each area. ‘Before taking a shower, please lay the provided floor mat on the floor,’ the list continues. ‘When finished please put it back on the radiator to dry. If you are likely to splash the floor when using the washbasin, please do the same when using it. ‘After taking a shower please use the squeegee provided to remove any water clinging onto the glasses, onto the tiles and onto the window in the first floor bathroom.
‘When finished with the squeegee please use the towel that you will find in the bathroom to finish the job of drying the inside of the shower.’ The homeowner encouraged guests to go to town with the toilet brush, using it to remove all waste from the rim, and sides. Male guests were also urged to sit down while peeing.
Of course, people Twitter took the mick. One person joked: ‘It doesn’t say anything about sh*tting in the sink.’ ‘I’m never sitting for a number two. Never,’ quipped another. Others asked what the purpose of paying a cleaning fee was if guests were forced to clean up. Airbnb doesn’t actually require guests to do a spring clean of properties but does recommend people leave the place as they found it. We wonder what happens if anyone dares leave a drop of water or even their ‘passage’ behind in this house.
