This free audio lesson on your bathroom in Spanish is useful in a number of contexts--from buying toiletries at the chemist or supermarket, to asking directions to the nearest bathroom or even explaining to a plumber what is wrong.
There does seem to be a range of regional variation in some of the words that fall into Spanish bathroom vocabulary, but what you see here are the most commonly used words in Latin America.
Don’t forget to pronounce all the words with “j” in them as an English “h” sound if you want to sound like a local.

So now there should be no confusing your hotel shampoo sachet with the toothpaste or buying soap instead of hair conditioner. Couples will now also be able to argue about who left the tapa del baño up and who forgot to put the cap back on the pasta dentifrice in Spanish--everything sounds more charming in a romance language though.
