NEVER plug adaptors into adaptors and avoid using adaptors filled with plugs if possible.
DON'T use damaged sockets, replace with care when necessary.
DON'T use any electrical items in the bathroom unless specifically designed for use there, eg. electric shavers and electric toothbrushes. Even with these items however, take care not to get wet and avoid plugging and unplugging with wet hands.
