How do I determine if my bathroom receptacles are 15 or 20 amp?

Twenty-amp receptacles have a horizontal slot branching off one of the vertical slots.
A 15-amp circuit is usually served by 14-gauge wire and is protected by a 15-amp circuit breaker or fuse.
A 20-amp circuit, protected by a 20-amp breaker or fuse, must be served by 12-gauge or 10-gauge wire.
The easiest way to determine whether a circuit is 15 or 20 amps is to look at the corresponding breaker or fuse in the breaker panel.

Look at your circuit panel, that is the only way to know.
