    ⓐUtensils, this part is for private use, but this part is for common use, so help yourself anytime.
    ⓐPlease do not leave your washings in to the wash machine for long for others.

    'Private use' - just (only) the person who owns this thing can use it.
    'Common use' - other people can use it, not just the owner.

    A: Hi, welcome the house, let me show you around.
    ⓐThere are three girls here and we take turns cleaning the house every week.
    ⓐUtensils, these are for private use and these are for common use, so help yourself anytime.
    ⓐPlease do not leave your washing in the washing machine for too long, it's inconvenient for the others.

    A: Sorry, the detergent and the dish-washer detergent are for private use.
