Weird question! When you stay at a friends or family’s home, do you use their shampoo, conditioner, body wash? Or do you bring your own?
I’ve never, ever used anyone elses as I thought it was rude. But I’ve noticed everyone uses my stuff when they stay at my home. (It’s a guest bath, not a master bath).

I do, if I forget my own, but I use the tiniest, most minimal amount that I possibly can.

It depends. I always plan to bring my own unless my hostess explicitly says, “And if you want to carry on a bag and not have to pack a ton of liquid, you can just use my shower stuff.” Then I will take her up on that offer.

Visiting family, yeah totally use it. staying with friends, no.

I always bring my own. I think it kind of depends, too. Some people have a guest bath, in which case they’re probably stocking that with products specifically intended for guests, in which case it would be fine to use them. However, if we’re using the same bath as our hosts, that product belongs to them, and I don’t use it.

If it’s a guest bath, they wouldn’t put the product in there if they didn’t want you to use them. Why put product in a guest bathroom that you don’t use only to expect your guests not to use them. And I believe that a host should provide these things for their guests.

@PinkMagnolia: I put “other” because I don’t necessarily think it’s rude, but I’m specific about what stuff I use so I bring my own 🙂

I have no idea WHY I think it’s rude, so I was just curious. I mean afterall they’re using my sheets, towels, eating my food, etc so what’s wrong with all my bath products?

Nope not rude.
Also, what we have in our guest bathroom for our guests to use is a basket of little shampoos/conditioners/soaps/body wash, etc that we take from hotels.

I always offer my stuff to anyone who stays in my house “Feel free to use my shampoo/conditioner, etc. also here’s a fresh bar of soap if you need it”
I think most people don’t want to use someone else’s previously used bar soap.
If I didn’t offer, and someone used it anyway, i wouldn’t care. If they are staying in my home I obviously feel comfortable with them.

I don’t really consider it stealing. To me, it’s not any different than toilet paper or bottled water. If someone comes over to my house, I would welcome them to use it and would hope they would feel comfortable enough doing so to not feel the need to ask. I might get kind of irritated if they use half the bottle or something….

I always bring my own when I’m a guest, but I also provide when I’m a host. So I guess I just like to be covered either way. 🙂

I was going to say “Yes for very close friends” but then I don’t think I’d stay at someones house unless we were close so just “yes”. I usually acknowledge that I’m going to do it by mentioning that I’m only taking carry on and won’t be bringing liquids. I won’t use things I know are expensive, like your La Mer creme is safe from me.
