Exposed insulation...safe to shower?


I am in the middle of remodeling 2 bathrooms at once. Currently, the only shower is in the upstairs bathroom (Finished attic).

There is no sheetrock up, so the wall/ceiling insulation is exposed. Should steam be a concern? I have been showering with the door open and the window if weather allows. It will be a few more days before sheetrock is up. I've been taking quicker/cooler showers....is that necessary?

Plastic stapled up works. Keep the moisture away from the insulation/wood to grow mold when the temperature is right: http://www.fpl.fs.fed.us/documnts/pdf2000/tenwo00a.pdf

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?
