Vocabulary - A Trip to the Powder Room!

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz will be reviewing items that you might find in the powder room. What is the powder room? Well, it is another way of saying bathroom or, as they say in some countries, the water closet or just simply the toilet. It is actually a very important place and if you find yourself in a Spanish speaking country, the vocabulary words that are associated with this necessity will be very essential. Therefore, this quiz will be devoted to those items that could possibly be found in or are associated with the powder room.

IN THE POWDER ROOM

ENGLISH SPANISH
cabinet botiquín [m] (also known as the first-aid kit)
cap gorra [f]

floss hilo dental [m] (note that the H is silent / it can also be translated as 'dental floss')
privacy privacidad [f]
