How does one tidy up soap?
if it's in bar form:
don't leave scum on it
don't leave little hairs on it
don't leave it in a puddle of water
don't squish it/make it into creative shapes
make sure it's left in the freakin' soapdish
if it's in a liquid dispenser:
don't leave liquid soap running down the sides of the bottle
don't get anything else on the bottle
don't leave bottle in a puddle of water
don't mess up the dispensing mechanism
don't drop the bottle (because it was likely picked to match the rest of the decor and if it's one of a kind, whoever decorated your bathroom will have a hard time finding another one. even if they won't have a hard time finding another one because it was just from pottery barn or bouclair, they will still be mad at you for putting a dent in it or whatever.)
i know all this, because one or both of my parents remind me weekly about one or the other of these things. the puddles of water on the counter piss them off like nothing else. not only is leaving a puddle of water inconsiderate, it can also ruin the counter (waterstains and whatnot).
but i just say "you only have to concern yourself with your own bathroom"
