So far we're keeping ours in the cabinet below the lavatory. When we put it on the counter, it tends to fall off onto the floor en route. But we'll probably put in a permanent holder. We'll use the shower only very, very rarely, so wet paper wouldn't normally be a problem. But I'm glad to know from TeacherGal that the holder apparently isn't standard...I'd hate to think at the price we paid that we'd somehow gotten cheated.
