Never leave a toddler alone in the bathtub. Keep a second toddler in the tub with her when you just pop into the next room to get something.
Showering at a motel can be dangerous if the motel was once on the main road until the highway came through and now no one ever stops there plus the owner/manager is a murderous transvestite who keep his dead mother in the attic. Stay at a Best Western instead because all the have are bed bugs.
If you have children, keep the temperature of your hot water heater at 120 degrees, because the joy of raising children must be balanced with at least seven years of miserably tepid baths and showers.
Avoid keeping an unsecured throw rug on the floor beside the tub. If you must keep your roller skates there, be sure your proficiency is drive-in car-hop, roller derby queen or better.
For the very elderly, you should install a sturdy bar for them to hold onto when getting into or out of the tub alone. If one cannot be installed, then keep a watchful toddler in the tub at all times.
A seat in the shower can be very helpful to those who cannot stand for long periods of time or those of us who just want to be able to sit and hypnotize whoever is sitting on the toilet.
Poor lighting can be dangerous in a bathroom. Keep your bathroom well lit with a high-wattage bulb, or, if you are holding a rave in your dining room, a strobe light.
Keep electrical appliances away from your tub and its occupants unless it is a toaster because a bathtub bagel is worth dying for.
If you don’t have no-slip strips on the bottom of your tub, an effective substitute is simply to bathe or shower in tap shoes. Plus, that might be a turn-on for one’s spouse…
Keep your medications out of the reach of your children… unless the rave you were holding in your dining room was specifically for them…
