To not understand skidmarks (genuine question)

Seriously, is this a man thing (as it is in my household)? Surely one poos, then wipes until clean, using ridiculous toilet-blocking amounts enough paper to do the job properly. That's it. Am I missing something?

some folk just don't wipe properly.

Maybe some people are in a rush? or blind? or they run out of loo roll?

I'm with you Never.

I'm with Beeny.

I recommend buying flushable wipes to keep in the toilet. Remind whomever it is that you are doing the washing (just assuming thats where you see it) and you would appreciate them using the wipes.

Piles

Poo hiding around them too sore to wipe wipe wipe

Obviously I don't speak from personal experience. I'm a laydeeee

Sorry

Apparently flushable wipes are really bad for the sewage system. Our poo collectors ;the council? Water board? Wrote to us to ask is to use some sort of spray that turns normal loo roll into wipealikes

I am not grossed out by it or anything like that, but I always wonder if I should wash those pants separately rather than with everything else. Which would be a massive waste of water and electricity, not to mention a tad precious. It all gets washed clean in the end, right? (tea towels excepted, I draw the line there for some reason).

FreckledLeopard Tue 22-Jan-13 22:43:28

It's one reason I am so glad that I am no longer with ex. The delights of washing skid-mark free underwear are worth the pain of divorce!

beeny Tue 22-Jan-13 22:46:01

But u wouldnt dream of wiping any other area of ur body with just dry tissue

1. Piles - I've had them since I was 22.
2. Do you invariably know when you have 'finished'? My bottom can lie - I think it's all over, and it isn't. Possibly related to number 1.
3. Why bother wearing pants at all, if your bottom is invariably squeaky clean? Pants are a good last defence.

Men have hairier bums than laydees wot have smooth peachy bums. I think this may have something to do with it.

joanofarchitrave Tue 22-Jan-13 22:48:17

I think 'flushable' wipes (cue massive intervention into blocked drains) are an enormous waste of money. We should all install the little shower heads that many Muslims have I believe (or at least I saw them in a hotel run by Muslims and was an instant convert, at least to showering my bottom).

That's what bidets are for

FredWorms Tue 22-Jan-13 22:50:36

You're not grossed out by it?

Blimey, you must really love him grin

ninjasquirrel Tue 22-Jan-13 22:54:55

I have wondered this too, when they are mentioned. The only person in this house who might fail to wipe his bum properly with dry toilet paper is DS (3), so how come some adults allegedly can't manage it? (Can't believe I chose this thread for my sole MN post today!)

Speaking as a lady, I don't defecate, flatulate or urinate.

littlewhitebag Tue 22-Jan-13 22:58:22

I don't understand the question. Skid marks are what you get when you do a mahoosive shite and leave marks on the inside of the lavvy pan. No amount of bog roll gets rid. Just lots of bleach.

beeny Tue 22-Jan-13 22:58:36

U may have guessed i am a muslim.Most of us do not understand how dry tissue gets u clean.

Moistenedbint Tue 22-Jan-13 22:59:54

Littlewhitebag, the op is referring to the incriminating marks which appear on ones undergarments..

littlewhitebag Tue 22-Jan-13 23:02:23

Ah well skid marks in rural Scotland is obviously different.
No excuse for manky pants though. That is just disgusting

I can't work it out either.

But I can understand the piles thing and had never thought of it before but it makes sense. I have to use wet wipes for the majority of cleaning in that area now because of piles sad (TMI, sorry!) so can see why if people didn't they could end up with skidmarks.

Nagoo Tue 22-Jan-13 23:05:46

yy I thought it was going to be the lav pan ones. Boys make them because they sit further back.

Has your DH got a very hairy crack OP?
