If you have to tell people not to put used toilet paper in the head you will soon have no guests. If your head cannot handle reasonable amounts of the proper toilet paper, you should work on that problem, not the guest instructions.

Re: Welcome aboard guest expectations

We have a tab on our blog, "For our Guests". This is mandatory reading before anyone comes to be a guest. We try to use humor to educate, while setting expectations for what is allowed, or not. We follow up with a conversation, "do you have any questions before you arrive?" So far this approach has worked well.

Sounds good. I just ordered a copy.

Thanks for the tip.
