To think these are unnecessary ablutions in the middle of the night?

Why is he flushing a tissue down the lav?

Sounds like he needs to grow up, and be more considerate!

Get some anti bac gel and tell him to put the tissue in the bin.

With wees, just go quietly in the dark, or leave a night light in there, only flush if its a poo is the rule in our house (ancient plumbing).
Have the neighbours complained - maybe invent a story about plumbing noises!?

Is afraid of the dark?

I give washing hands higher priority over flushing the loo at night. No way do we flush after every wee (night or day). I don't think our loo stinks at all and I am pretty neurotic about stinky loos with 3 males in the house.

if you are whinging about plumbing noises:

you can get a quiet flusher

you can get a silent cistern filling valve

if you have a noisy ballcock in the loft tank change it for a good quality new one and you will be so surprised how quiet it is that you will wish you had done it years ago.

All these hand washing hygiene comments on threads always make me wonder - do avid hand washers wash their hands after sex/foreplay etc?, do they wash their hands after being in any public place or using public transport? after using a computer? Using a mobile phone/work phone? Shaking hands with someone

Yes, is that bad? blush

I'm a wee in the dark person, DH has to make a song and dance about it and wake the whole household. Our local chemist do some brilliant silicone earplugs. They have pretty much save our marriage. They also block out the worst of the snoring.

I wash my hands after a wee because it's automatic but thinking about it, my hand doesn't actually come into contact with anything. I use enough loo roll that my hand doesn't touch my body and no fluid comes through the paper to my hand. Like the OP, it's no big issue if she doesn't wash her hands in the night.

I neither flush nor wash my hands if it's been a wee at 4 a.m.

So there.

I'm with Sidge.
