If you're anything like me, you spend a lot of time in the bathroom during the holidays.
Hiding! From my family! What did you think I meant?
As with so many worthwhile endeavors, the key to successful bathroom hiding is advance planning. Lay in your supplies so you aren't tempted to leave your sanctuary too soon, and wind up in an uncomfortable discussion with your Aunt Leslie about potty training. Her dogs. Or something equally graphic and horrifying.
Oh, and sure, most of these recommendations work even if you aren't an anti-social misanthrope, and just want to have a guest friendly powder room.
It's actually pretty simple: light reading materials, a few comfort items like mouthwash and hair spray. Of course, the advanced host/hostess has tampons, piped in music and "liquid refreshments" readily available. But like tying a perfect Windsor knot, this can all be learned.
