Filtering in from the cleaning vomit sheets thread

Due to having a large age gap, I can't remember how to clean when you toilet train,

So here are my questions that I'm too embarrassed to ask elsewhere

How do you clean potty, do you bleach, how do you get a poo stain off, do you clean in bath,

What do you do with poo in underware, I know the flip down the toilet trick, but them what, again do you rinse, if so where, surely bit straight into washing machine

How do you wash a mattress that has pee on it,

Feel free to answer mine and add your own questions

Filtering in? Should have been following on, stupid phone

Everything in the shower! Once majority has been put down the toilet, everything goes in our bath for a rinse, then washing machine. Bath is washed.
Our mattresses have removable covers (and always have waterproof sheets on) so it's not that much of an issue. smile

How do you change a boys nappy? I only have a DD. Went to change my cousin's DS... Utterly flummoxed. Forgot that he would obviously have completely different anatomy...
How hard do you wipe? Do you lift their penis up to wipe underneath? Would that hurt?

I actually didn't know. And I felt very stupid. God help me if I ever have a boy....

I had to get used to changing my little boy after having only had a girl (with a large age gap).

I clean normally everywhere, and then just a little extra gentle when it comes to the genitals themselves. I do lift up and clean underneath, he doesn't seem to bat an eyelid. No retracting the foreskin (if uncircumcised), just leave it alone.

Only thing I really had to learn quickly was to always make sure he was pointing down when putting the nappy on, otherwise he would just wee out of the top band.

You throw out poopy underwear. It's not worth trying to wash them.

Tie them into a nappy bag first obviously!

You can dangle ploppy underwear down the toilet and then flush it- hold the pants in the area where the water flushes into the loo, and it'll flush the worst of the poo off the pants. Then pop them in the wash.

Hi Bacon, following on from the 'sick soup' bucket discussed in my vomitty thread, I make what I suppose you might call poo soup, by throwing the soiled pants (with bulk of it down the toilet) into a bucket with water and detergent until the next wash is done. Gosh I really need to stop all this disgusting talk sorry!
