Half of Americans don't see a problem with sneakily stealing items from someone else’s bathroom

Half of Americans don't think it's a problem to sneakily steal someone else's item from the bathroom.

A study of 2,000 Americans examined the habits and behaviors of people when it comes to their bathroom products.

It found that one in two people have lied about using another person's toiletries in a pinch ?

And no product is completely off limits.

Respondents admit to nicking all kinds of other bathroom items in a panic, like shampoo (51 percent), body moisturizer (38 percent) and facial cleanser (34 percent).

Surprisingly, more people say it's acceptable to borrow someone's toothbrush than a razor, with 21 percent saying it's okay to borrow a toothbrush, and only 19 percent say so for a razor.

Just because they aren't stealing doesn't mean respondents didn't confess to other bathroom crimes ... like snooping around.

Sixty percent of respondents think it's not a big deal to take a peek in someone's medicine cabinet and 55 percent even admitted to poking around in another's toiletries.

The survey, commissioned by Made For YOU and conducted by OnePoll, revealed that people often get in a pinch when traveling.

Sixty-five percent have left a toiletry item behind when packing.

So, what are people to do when they've left a key bathroom item at home?

Eighty-seven percent would immediately pay for a new one - but not everyone is willing to shell out the money.

Over half of respondents (51 percent) think they could survive for a week without a toothbrush.

Two in five (42 percent) couldn't stand the panic of leaving something behind and would have to borrow their missing item from their travel companion.

When it comes to those closest, people are most likely to borrow from good 'ole mom and dad (44 percent).

Other trusty individuals' respondents would trust enough to ask for a favor included partners (43 percent), siblings (36 percent) or friends (36 percent).

Not everyone sees sharing hygiene products as signs of affection though ?

35 percent think sharing a razor with a partner is "uncomfortable" and 36 percent would classify partners who share toothbrushes as "disgusting." "Whoever you are, whatever you shave, our new Made For YOU razors are a great choice for everybody and every body, so you never have to worry about borrowing someone else's," said Mary Fox, General Manager of BIC North America.

When shopping for bathroom products, it ultimately comes down to a matter of cost though ?

72 percent say price plays a major role in their choice of items. Results found that women are 45 percent more likely to think they're overpaying for razors so it's not surprising then that 59 percent of women have used products meant for men.

Sixty percent of respondents said they've used a product meant for the other gender.

"Now more than ever, there's a segment of consumers looking for products that are more inclusive," Fox said.

"Research has found that not everyone has a gender-driven approach to shaving, which is why so many say it's acceptable to use a product meant for another gender."
