Spiders in the Shower

We've recently noticed an increase in bathroom visits by our arachnid co-dwellers and we gotta say...we're not quite ready to break down our neighborly barriers and invite them in. Our general code-of-conduct is starting to reveal a major flaw...

Spiders are given a quick "Does it look scary?" once over, then double checked by any other humans in the room. If they do, indeed, "look scary" (i.e. big furry body or sharp thick legs), then the cup and postcard method is applied. If they're just an everyday variety then we let them be.

But the bathroom? All bets are off in shower territory. Maybe it's flashbacks to Arachnophobia that get us or the element of surprise upon discovery, but we're can't bring ourselves to reach out for the cup and postcard when we're standing under the shower-head sopping wet. We hate to drown the little guys; they were probably just thirsty...but sometimes spider-tolerance can only go so far.

What's your method of preference mid-shower?
