Like Matthew Wright
Rinse my mince
And sometimes call people Hun on Facebook


AugustaProdworthy Mon 18-Nov-13 12:40:37

Mince rinse?

WorraLiberty Mon 18-Nov-13 12:41:55

I have a laxative and a can of polish

Yet, I still can't give a shiny shit about it grin

Rinsing mince is wrong!
There is no arguing with such fuckwittery

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 12:44:09

My god mince rinsing is so 2011. Can't we move on, hun?

DawnOfTheDee Mon 18-Nov-13 12:44:12

Rinsing the mince sounds like a euphemism. Ew.

I wish I could give a shit, shiny or otherwise thank you pg constipation

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 12:44:39

It makes it lovely and tender when you rinse mince.

OHforDUCKScake Mon 18-Nov-13 12:44:45

What are you rinsing the mince of? Ive never heard of this before.

scarletforya Mon 18-Nov-13 12:45:33

I have a toilet brush.
I rarely cook from scratch.
I do not drink wine.


OHforDUCKScake Mon 18-Nov-13 12:46:39

I dont like bars of chocolate.

WorraLiberty Mon 18-Nov-13 12:46:55

I buy my mince from Waitrose

Therefore it comes pr-rinsed in the tears of angels in heaven.

GiantSnailFeelers Mon 18-Nov-13 12:48:53

I kick my kids and once almost kicked someone else's in tesco

I eat tubs of ben and jerrys in one sitting

I'm not wearing any knickers

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 12:49:37

I rinse my Waitrose mince grin

It gets all the fat off after it's browned. Less grease more yum

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 12:50:36

The knickers thing was one piece of information too far.

GiantSnailFeelers Mon 18-Nov-13 12:50:48

you cook it THEN rinse it


I do give a teeny tiny shite about that, its weird, gross and unnecessary grin

SPsIsAgainstCliffism Mon 18-Nov-13 12:51:14

Rinse the mince sounds wrong even to someone as innocent as me

Topseyt Mon 18-Nov-13 12:52:24

I never rinse mince, thats a new one on me. I do drink wine though.

I have chicken breasts defrosting for dinner tonight. I shan't be rinsing them either.

Caff2 Mon 18-Nov-13 12:53:00

Rinsing mince is entirely normal. What all sane people do.

GiantSnailFeelers Mon 18-Nov-13 12:53:20

innocent? SP? really? grin

GiantSnailFeelers Mon 18-Nov-13 12:53:56

<updates spreadsheet>

Caff2 is also weird


HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 12:55:19

Don't rinse chicken. Terribly unhygienic.

A woman on CDWM rinsed her mince last week and DD shouted "look Mummy, she must be a Mumsnetter" grin

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 13:12:16

You rinse after cooking?

well, while we're confessing:
I have loo brushes (and use them)
I am planning a Christmas eve hamper

wigglesrock Mon 18-Nov-13 13:21:21

... have lots of photos of the kids up on a wall

have an artificial Christmas tree & hate real ones - feckin horrible smell

just to pre-empt - everyone I know calls him Santa. I know not a single person in real life who actually uses the phrase Father Christmas - it used to make us laugh when it was used in Blue Peter blush

Jolleigh Mon 18-Nov-13 13:22:46

What the hell? You wash the flavour off your food?

Have I missed something? I've never heard of this before.

Who the jeff rinses mince?!? What is the point? Who has that much time in their life?!?

I know people that boil mince before browning in a pan <boak>

Why must people mess with mince? .... I'm going to start a petition.

Wait, wait, you rinse your mince after it has browned?? shock

Other than that I don't give a shiny shit grin

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 13:26:54

Your not rinsing the flavour off grin

OHforDUCKScake Mon 18-Nov-13 13:27:13

I thought Santa was american and Father Christmas was british?

No you're just adding yummy-yummy flavoursome water

Oh wait...

My kids get the occasional fruitshoot.
And Gregg's sausage rolls.
Sometimes at the same time shock
I have twiggy shit (no pebbles, no fairy lights though)

I like wine but would prefer a [white wine]

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 13:29:31

It's literally in a colander quick rinse with hot water from the kettle. No more grease.

Mandy2003 Mon 18-Nov-13 13:30:55

No-one has admitted to having a Rug of Piss in their bathroom yet...

BuzzardBird Mon 18-Nov-13 13:32:06

I like this idea...I put my duvets in my pillowcases too.

I don't like cake.

What's a rug of piss ?

Deffo no rugs of piss here

Fillybuster Mon 18-Nov-13 13:35:57

I'm confused by mince-rinsing. I mean, why? And does it make a difference that I mostly use chicken mince?

Apart from that:

I have a wall of dc photos

I have toilet brushes

I have pebbles, rocks, shells and twiggy shit.


<gets coat>

misskatamari Mon 18-Nov-13 13:36:27

Doesn't everyone have a loo brush? How do you clean a loo properly without one? shock

Oh I see, thanks Pacific, no we just have a big cold wet patch on the bathroom floor. Thanks dts.

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Mon 18-Nov-13 13:37:46

I don't know who Matthew Wright is.

'rinse my mince' sounds a bit like a dubious euphemism. I don't know what for.

Am having a mini-hoick of my judgypants about 'Hun' though. grin

I don't have a tumble-dryer so dry clothes on hangers in the living room and over radiators. I've seen cat's-bum-mouthing on here about this.

I have fairy lights and I LOVE them.

I don't drink wine.

I don't care if someone is a full-time SAHM and has a cleaner/nanny/ live-in pedicurist.

I have wallpaper with photo frames on it -as a pattern, on purpose. It's in our hallway and full of cheeses photos of us including the cat.

moldingsunbeams Mon 18-Nov-13 13:38:39

Im guessing one of those shaped rug things this

Jolleigh Mon 18-Nov-13 13:38:54

I admit to having a rug of piss (that's washed every few days) as I'm horrendously accident prone and last year I slipped and twatted my head off the wash basin. It's less of a pain in the arse to wash a rug than it is to wash them rubbery things.

And anyone rinsing off cooked mince is washing off flavour. Can you imagine what Gordon Ramsey would say?!

moldingsunbeams Mon 18-Nov-13 13:40:17

I too have a loo brush.

Ooh, I would love a live-in pedicurist - where can I get one??

Arya, I live with 5 penises <sigh> biscuit

I don't give a shiny shit about 'risk assessments' and Elf and Safety

Jolleigh Mon 18-Nov-13 13:40:48

What exactly do people use if they don't have a loo brush?

I am not allowed a loo brush due to my controlling anally-retentive weird DH thinking them unhygienic.

So we have a guaranteed-to-destroy-the-planet ToiletDuck thingies hmm. Which DH cleans the toilet with grin

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 13:44:17

In not washing off the flavour. I did a controlled experiment.

stickysausages Mon 18-Nov-13 13:46:27

No toilet brush here, 'orrid things!! Covered in shit, pubes, paper... make my skin crawl. A good squirt of under the rim, flushable paradise wipes for anything stubborn...

Ah but was it double-blind, randomised and peer reviewed, Honey??

And btw since you asked and since it's you: YABU grin

stickysausages Mon 18-Nov-13 13:47:11

Oh ffs! Good squirt of bleach under the rim & parazone wipes!!

RandallFloyd Mon 18-Nov-13 13:47:12

I don't like Waitrose.
I don't like Boden either.

I hate loo brushes, my ex loved them., i packed ours with his stuff, nasty thing, i use my hand to clean the toilet.

I also like Matthew wright, i don't rinse my mince by do drain odd excess fat

I just ate a frozen Greg sausage roll from Iceland for lunch.

Anniegetyourgun Mon 18-Nov-13 13:52:59

I like "hon" (note, not "hun"). I have to restrain my inner honner on here. It doesn't come naturally.

DS2 cooks whenever it's mince so I don't even know whether it's rinsed or not. Assuming not. (Agree it does sound like some sort of perversion.)

I have loo brushes, my sister has the disposable wipe thingies. Between us we've got the planet thoroughly doomed.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 13:55:52

Yup, in fairness I am a honner rather than a hunner.

I babe rather than Hun/hon. Hun just doesn't roll off the tongue / keyboard for me.

thehorridestmumintheworld Mon 18-Nov-13 14:05:29

Teenage tantrums you use your hand to clean the toilet? Hope you rinse it afterwards.

RatherBeOnThePiste Mon 18-Nov-13 14:08:42

I say Father Christmas grin

frumpypigskin Mon 18-Nov-13 14:12:46

Me, Me, Me (hand in the air). I've got a rug of piss AND toilet brushes. The rug of piss covers the carpet of piss we have in the bathroom.

I also wash mince but before I cook it, so that's fine isn't it?

Just read 'I'm not washing off the flavour' after a posting about cleaning the toilet. Eeeeeew!

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 14:14:23

I have a carpeted loo.

diagnosticnomansland Mon 18-Nov-13 14:17:49

Does draining your mince in a metal sieve count? After you've browned it....and if it does, what does it mean exactly?

<missing point>?

muppetthecow Mon 18-Nov-13 14:18:05

I say Father Christmas too grin

We also have a loo brush and a rug of piss, but I don't rinse mince unless it's been in the freezer. The rug of piss is mostly there to keep my feet warm on the loo. DH has exceptionally good aim apparently wink

Edendance Mon 18-Nov-13 14:19:05

Your hand for the loo?! Yuck! I had to do that recently when staying at a friends with no loo brush... Not good.

I would never wash mince... I don't wash and food before (or after ?!) eating it.

I have no twigs but I love fairy lights.

We have a carpet wee ring shaped like a duck, and a carpet bathroom floor, in a rented house! Just imagine!!

I have a toilet brush.
I only drink red wine. dont drink enough
I'm a sahm who would love a nanny/cleaner/butler
I use holland and barratt soya mince so I just add water.

I've just done a shiney shit in the loo thanks to some co-codamel.


HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 14:21:46

Tee. Which part of your toilet is carpeted?

vtechjazz Mon 18-Nov-13 14:26:04

I break the law if I think I'll get away with it, especially parking ones. I also rinse mince, its much healthier!

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 14:31:41

The floor part.

Rented house. I hate it.

GiantSnailFeelers Mon 18-Nov-13 14:34:47

noone seems to habe a problem with my chold kicking only with toilet brishes and mince rinsing grin

JollySeriousGiant Mon 18-Nov-13 14:36:52

I've recently started shortening words in text messages. Not quite full on txt spk but not proper English either. I hate myself a little.

Chattymummyhere Mon 18-Nov-13 14:39:21

I have no toilet brushes or piss rugs...

I love wine and I don't rinse my mince

I don't mop though I only use the steam cleaner

I have to massive hairy beasts for dogs and a cat

Oh and I use massive amounts of industrial bleach on everything (if it don't smell clean it's not.. Crazy thing in my head)

SoonToBeSix Mon 18-Nov-13 14:41:39

You have to rinse mince, why would you eat fat? An genuinely baffled people do not.

SoonToBeSix Mon 18-Nov-13 14:42:54

I once went to the chippy in bright yellow sponge bob pyjama bottoms. I did get admiring looks from the local teenagers.

morethanpotatoprints Mon 18-Nov-13 14:46:52

You only have to rinse mince once to realise the benefit to your health.
drain it into a dish and watch it form a huge lump of lardy looking fat.
Yuk, wouldn't want to eat this.

5madthings Mon 18-Nov-13 14:50:49

you wash mince?! wtf. yes to draining any fat off but you dont need to wash it to do that!

we dont have a rug of piss, infact when we moved into this house one of the first things we did was rip up thr carpet in the bathroom.

i dont like wine, infact i dont drink very often but when i do i drink rum.

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Mon 18-Nov-13 15:08:59

What would happen if someone did give a shit/toss/fuck/whatever?

Genuine question. It's an odd phrase and I always wonder.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 15:09:00

It appears IABU. People really do care about mince rinsing, even more than child kicking.

MrsRogerSterling Mon 18-Nov-13 15:10:13

Please could someone just clarify the mince it before or after browning?

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 15:14:50

After browning

vtechjazz Mon 18-Nov-13 15:15:20

Brown mince, them put in colander to drain off fat then pour boiling water over it while still in colander to remove grease.

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 15:24:06

Who is Matthew Wright?

And wtf is wrong with calling FC Father Christmas?

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 15:26:55

I CBA to brown the mince to start with (slow cooker fan) so rinsing as well seems like an additional step I can do without.

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 15:32:51

The issue isn't calling him FC. It's calling him Santa Claus.

Apparently that's 'American' or something so evil that I can't even repeat it like that.

misskatamari Mon 18-Nov-13 15:33:42

What about when there's a sticky poo that won't budge?!

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Mon 18-Nov-13 15:34:55

misskatamari, pour in fuckloads of bleach, close lid, go away for a bit, pray, return to find sticky poo totally vanished.

<voice of trauma experience>>

misskatamari Mon 18-Nov-13 15:38:19

Ahhh I do that most of the time - sometimes DH leaves ones that won't budge tho - which is when the brush comes out (along with more bleach!!) I do agree they are gross tho. I once saw one for sale in a charity shop! WHY!?!

TheHeadlessLadyofCannock Mon 18-Nov-13 15:39:31

Oh, my experience was one that wouldn't budge, not just skidmarks. The bleach just dissolved the bastard.

It was like a scene from Breaking Bad. grin

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 15:41:20

Poo, mince and Santa Claus on one thread. I think this might be one of my finer moments grin

AutumnStar Mon 18-Nov-13 15:43:55

I read 'Rinse my mince' as a kind of Alan Partridge-esque retort. Like Kiss my face.

'I like Matthew Wright. Rinse my mince!'

FortyDoorsToNowhere Mon 18-Nov-13 15:53:23

I don't rinse mince
I dislike Matthew Wright
I have a toilet brush
I have a piss mat ( well several they get replaced every day)

ElephantMug Mon 18-Nov-13 15:55:05

Is this a good time to mention that I quite like lemon drizzle cake?

PolterGoose Mon 18-Nov-13 15:55:41

Don't rinse your mince down the sink shock

If it's too fatty use kitchen roll to soak up the fat.

I have

Two toilet brushes

Fruit shoots

Pebbly shit

Fake flowers


TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 15:58:18

Autumn grin <snort>

Thanks Tee. I like to use both. Does that make me cosmopolitan?
Or indecisive?

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 15:59:40

So, I have google Matthew Wright then. Because I seem to be the only one who doesn't know who he is.

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 16:01:36

Go with cosmopolitan. ::nods::

AutumnStar Mon 18-Nov-13 16:03:02

Amanda, revolutionary is what you are.

Matthew Wright is Jeremy Vine in my head. Even though he isn't. Obviously.

LaGuardia Mon 18-Nov-13 16:04:55

Noooooo. Mince needs the blood in it to taste of anything at all. No rinsing.

DameDeepRedBetty Mon 18-Nov-13 16:17:37

Never mind Hon.

At least you didn't Rinse your Minge in your thread title and end up with three quarters of MN taking the piss for the next six hours.

(Can't find that thread, must have been in Chat and it doesn't seem to been put in Classics)

FortyDoorsToNowhere Mon 18-Nov-13 16:19:46

I also light candles

ChrisTheSheep Mon 18-Nov-13 16:24:33

I have a rug of piss in the bathroom, but it's from John Lewis, so does that make it posh? I also have toilet brushes, but I keep them clean.

Have never heard of rinsing mince! I couldn't shop in Waitrose, even if I could afford it, because I'd be sure that the staff were secretly judging me for not being posh enough. Booths is my fantasy, winning-the-lottery shop. Oh, Booths: in Lytham I miss you and your delicious goodies.

ChrisTheSheep Mon 18-Nov-13 16:25:01

Or even "Oh Booths in Lytham: I miss you"...

fifi669 Mon 18-Nov-13 16:31:25

I don't have a rug of piss and I don't rinse my mince. Pretty sure mum is a boiler though which seems wrong?

It is most definitely Father Christmas.....

Last night was the first time I've watched an episode of I'm a celeb and I've never seen TOWIE, Geordie shore or the other one.... Made in Chelsea?

Poo, mince and Santa Claus on one thread. I think this might be one of my finer moments

Yes, it is, HoneyDragon, it is indeed grin

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 17:16:19

Thanks Pdog <<wipes away happy tear>>

Crinkle77 Mon 18-Nov-13 18:15:55

YANBU about Matthew Wright. I love him and his show on C5

wigglesrock Mon 18-Nov-13 18:19:56

HoneyDragon stirling work indeed - in the words of the Ambassador "you are truly spoiling us" smile

fanjofarrow Mon 18-Nov-13 18:20:25

Rinsing mince? What is this tomfoolery?

fifi I've never seen any of those shows either.

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 18:21:37

I don't know PD. Can she really top 'I've Immaced the baby'?

Bettercallsaul1 Mon 18-Nov-13 18:23:01

I call the lavatory the toilet and have a lounge in my house. Don't rinse mince, though, so at least one redeeming feature.

Stropzilla Mon 18-Nov-13 18:26:16

I don't eat Ham, naice or otherwise.

fanjofarrow Mon 18-Nov-13 18:28:35

Ah, I understand the mince rinsing thing now (although it does sound like a dodgy euphemism.) DP is the chef in our house, thankfully. He drains the fat off the mince, he doesn't wash it under the tap though! grin

TheRealAmandaClarke Mon 18-Nov-13 18:30:07

I have a lounge

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 18:37:37

I care Honey.

In fact I care so much that I feel I have to educate you. MW is going to be a complete twat on ImACleb, mince-rinsing spreads bacteria all over the kitchen (as well as being utterly weird) and Facebook is wrong so using hun on it is irrelevant - just give it up altogether.


HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 18:51:46

Rinsing raw mince spreads bacteria.

Rinsing browned mince in boiling water doesn't.

I fear my cooking method for the worlds best chicken in white wine sauce would send you all over the edge.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 18:54:18

It does if you haven't browned it enough. And it clogs your pipes with fat.

chicken in white wine sauce is wrong too - it's a waste of wine shock

Shelbury Mon 18-Nov-13 18:58:15

I'm finding it hard to alternate between mince rinsing and toilet brushing.

Now it's occurred to me that "rinsing the mince" could be a viable alternative to "dropping the kids off at the pool" - obviously depending on the consistency of your ahem number twos...

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Mon 18-Nov-13 18:59:00

I own and use loo brushes
My kids drink Fruit Shoots
I have - once - bought Greggs frozen sausage rolls from Iceland. They were bloody delicious.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 18:59:01


morethanpotatoprints Mon 18-Nov-13 19:00:03

It has to be Father Christmas as Santa is an anagram of the one we don't mention.

Shelbury Mon 18-Nov-13 19:03:26

I used to work as a checkout girl in Iceland

But I've never set foot in a Nandos

madmomma Mon 18-Nov-13 19:09:06

I rinse my quorn mince in piss to add flavour

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 19:09:51

I don't drain the fat down the sink I have a washing up bowl

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 21:25:04

So you have a washing up bowl full of fat? confused

the worlds best chicken in white wine sauce
Ok, then, amaze us and send us over the edge

Tee, there's also the "I dyed the baby blue"... grin

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:34:28

It gets tipped in the garden rather than down the sink .... I don't collect it grin

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 21:34:39

True PD. Hard to decide which is better.


I dare you, I double-dare you, Honey... <slitty-eyed stare>

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 21:37:24

Oh, Tee, are we celebrating thanksgiving <wracks brains for ideas>

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 21:40:06

We're trying Maryz but HQ will not give me a turkey smile.

Or pilgrim hats.


You've still got a couple of weeks to bribe change their minds, Tee.

Pilgrim hats and Indian feathered headbands please

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:42:53

The secret is to deal the chicken, then talent out the pan and cook it in chicken stock while you then get in and make the sauce. Then add it back to the sauce.

Means you get a lovely rich creamy mushroom sauce and perfect moist chicken. Yum.

Oh sorry, Native Americans blush

And, Honey, eh??
Now you are just going out of your way to confuse me... easily done, mind

SecretNutellaFix Mon 18-Nov-13 21:43:58

You like Matthew Wright?

That's it, you've almost crossed the line.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:44:39

I'd love thanksgiving on Mumsnet

SecretNutellaFix Mon 18-Nov-13 21:44:51

Are you on a ShitePhone, Honey?

That made as much sense as Welsh does to someone from Russia.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:45:36

I've just updated my phone and blips autocorrecting weirdly

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:45:51


HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:46:55

Seal the chicken in a pan. Then take out pan and cook in chicken stock.

That makes FAR more sense than your previous post.
Or rinsing the mince grin

I am undecided on the MW thing as he quoted me once blush

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 21:49:39

I have reported your sulk Tee. I have asked for a simple stars and stripes if a turkey is beyond the capabilities of the inartistic Tech.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 21:50:20

Cook the pan in chicken stock?

What do you do with the chicken?

And can you just drink the wine?

timidviper Mon 18-Nov-13 21:52:09

I had forgotten about "I rinse my minge" grin, it is indeed an unholy habit. I'm intrigued by the shocking chicken recipe though

ChrisTheSheep I was in Booths in Lytham last week, even had lunch there and everyfink

HoneyDragon Do you have a special fatpit? Or can you skate in your garden?

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:56:23

When the ice caps melt you'll all want to live on my garden fatherg.

Yes I remember you being quoted grin

I've been on twice.
Once my email about gay hamsters derailed the show. The other time I was on the phone talking about my university.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 21:57:24


It took me ages to sort this phone out and now Apple have fucked my autocorrect!

TEEurkeyDay Mon 18-Nov-13 21:57:55

Thank you MaryZ. I have a thread upon which AmyHQ has posted her distress about my request.

Oooooh, he actually spoke to you, Honey?

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:00:10

Oh, I will take a wander.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 22:02:02

Yes, I was on for ages as all the panel kept asking me questions blush

Finola1step Mon 18-Nov-13 22:05:37

I like eating ready meals.
I don't always buy naice ham.
I call him Father Christmas. Not Santa!

KnightMare Mon 18-Nov-13 22:08:20

I would give him one if he could show some dominance

cantbelievemyeyes Mon 18-Nov-13 22:12:33

I have a toilet brush. I rinse it with boiling water and soak it in bleach every week. No way am I sticking my hand below the waterline to remove sticky skids.

I'd quite like a portable toilet brush to take on mini breaks/ holidays as my heart always sinks when I check into my room and find no brush. No housekeeper gets paid enough to deal with the remnants of DH's post meal out deposits.

Incidentally my Mam always rinsed mince, but she bought minging mince from the supermarket. Steak mince from the butcher requires no rinsing.

Ah, I must have naice mince grin

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:16:26

[arf] at "I would give him one" coming straight after the reference to Father Christmas.

I have more than one toilet brush. I replace them with the €1.99 ones from Lidl every time I go. Everyone who has teenagers needs a toilet brush, as the chances of them putting their hands into the loo are approximately minus a gazillion.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:17:23

Sorry, not Lidl, Ikea.

I see no need to rinse the fat off mince. It is filling for teenagers, especially ones who want to be rugby players. In fact, if there is any fat on the top of my spag bog (and there rarely is), I skim it off and add it to ds2's plate.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 22:20:03

My a Dad had a quadruple bypass a couple of years ago. I do anything to reduce fats.

I have a friend who buys fillet steak, minces it herself, and makes spag bog for her children out of it shock. You could do that I suppose if you are made of money

To be fair, I do buy relatively expensive mince. I would rather a small amount of top quality mince, I can't bear the stuff that looks white and gives off tons of grease [bleurgh]

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:27:37

there plenty batshit flying about on this thread...rinsing mince....fat is where the flavour is and if you have bought steak mince to begin with....ffs.

I really dont know....

But I do like Mathew Wright - I just dont take him seriously...he sends himself up IMO but some seem to bite a bit too much.

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:29:10

So maryz every time you 'go' (for a number 2?) you replace your toilet brush - that must cost a fortune of you regular...

I would so NOT give MW anything, not even my mince, rinsed or otherwise shock

I wonder whether I should have a secret toilet brush, a covert one? DH need not know... Where would one keep such an item? confused

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:32:00

oh PCdog a overt brush IMO woud involve cling film or carrier bag, think of the drips women, on yer floor

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:32:35

It's ok Pacific, keep it beside your toilet. I don't think dh has ever seen mine hmm

grin feeling. Maybe not every time. I do go to Ikea quite a lot though, having one in Dublin is a real novelty.

HoneyDragon Mon 18-Nov-13 22:33:56

I buy steak mince so ner.

Oh, noon, DH would so notice.
He is far less of a slattern than I am. 'Tis a problem...
Hm. Yes. Drips... yeuch

MzPixielated Mon 18-Nov-13 22:35:50

oh for gods sake you lot
if the toilet brush is minging then you aren't using it properly.
1. flush
2. don fetching rubber glove (if you wish)
3. lashings of bleach all round bowl
4. go round the loo bowl with brush in a swirly type motion and scrub any stubborn bits.
5. flush. whilst still holding brush and let the clean water rinse the brush head.
6. splodge of bleach in brush bucket and plonk brush back ready for next use.

After all that bleach its hardly unhygienic.

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:37:07

So let me get this right maryz nearly every time you go for a poo you change your toilet brush.

I'm not sure about ikea connectiont to your bowel habits <purses lips>

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:38:03

yy, my toilet brush sits in gloop (toilet duck or whatever).

I'm not sticking my hands down the toilet to clean off the boys' or dh's skidmarks. At least with the brush there they do most of it.

I have a friend who has two bathrooms and two sons. Her husband and sons use one of the loos, she is the only one who uses "hers". I really envy her.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:38:35

I could maybe hold it, and only go to the loo when I'm in Ikea? Cut out the middle man, maybe?

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:39:31

so if the rinsing mince principle is applied for fat removal does this stand up also for steaks?

You need fatty juice tastes. Can anyone remember dripping bread on a Sunday - oh god the dripping bread off raost beef or lamb - heaven.

<takes notes from MzPisielated>

I may need to be all upfront and in-yet-face about the loo brush issue.
Although - we did the bathroom up about 5 years ago. Still have no toilet roll holder <sigh>

Maybe I need to pick my battles??

IKEA is v good for picking up good toiling habits accessories.

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:42:47

Your friend is living well maryz. Does Ikea have toilet brushes then I mean you leave your chunks n skids for someone else then? Oh dear....You should get these toilet duck brushes with the disposable 'cloth brush' that is flushable. I mean all my years - thought this was MN standard its that or LTB if they refuse to clean.

<Gavels> -

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:43:20

My grandmother used to make us fry-ups for breakfast. Shee used to fry the sausages, then cut off the bacon rinds and crisp them up in the sausage fat, and then fry bread in the remaining fat.

She lived to over 90 grin

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:45:32

pacificdog you have made me feel immensly better for having put up with a mannually flushing toilet for the last month. I think not having a toilet roll holder for that long trumps. I mean when they men f olk leave it in front of them on sil....thats no godd for us, give yourself a hernia swivelling round for the t roll

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:46:09

I can't use the disposeable ones. We have dodgy drains, and putting anything at all down them <glares at dd> blocks them. They can barely cope with dh's emissions toilet paper.

feelingood, that is our method of choice at the moment. But those flushable pads are difficult to get. Even the big Tesco does not always have them. And then they look funny at me when I buy half a dozen packs at a time.

Maryz, yum. How hard did your gran work? I mean, physically, work?
I had an uncle who was never seen without a stinking cigar smoking away at his lip - he lived to over 90 too. He still stank, pinched my bum inappropriately AND was a lucky bastard grin.

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 22:46:44

How did we get into this conversation?

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:47:39

Oh yes maryz when they used lard too - and for roast pots not poncy goose fat for £4.00 a jar.

It's LARD people, thats what you need for your pots and parsnips this Christmas - well thats a bit more simplfying done IMO.

Which one? About toilets or people with unhealthy habits living a long time??

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:48:29

PCD have you tried Wilkos or Lakeland you know such domesticated shops and that ilk

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:49:22

Well I find it fascintating maryz saves her poos for ikea. God who knew them red 'family' cards stretched that far

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:50:33

PCD half a dozen LOL at a 'big' tescos somewhere calling you a RL poo troll

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:50:51

i'll stop posting now I will

Would Lakeland lower themselves to be stocking ToiletDuck consumables? I think not <hoiks>

feeling, we have a 'little' Tesco (in the village, walking distance) and a 'big' Tesco (3mi away, better stocked)
Yep, the poo troll, c'est moi!!

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 22:57:22

best look ot for that Betterware catalogue then PCD and in true MN feministo style - why doesnt DH sort out the toilet brush issue if it bother him - maybe you should get him one for Christmas for a laugh - or woud he not think that funny.

We have a little tesco's though how it is still little with the amount of post school post bed time runs we do for the nuaghty extras I'll never know. I dont like going to our big one - ive got very snobby bout it bbut htats for another thread.

Oh, I've just had a ranty thread about Tesco, no need to be nice about it.

As DH does most of the toilet cleaning, I don't feel I can complain grin.
And he is training DS1-4 to not dribble/wipe up after dribbles/lift seat AND put seat back down.
So my interest in toilet cleaning issues is more theoretical.

The loo roll however...

I haven't read any of the thread but just wanted to say you are wrong on every front.

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 23:08:42

Well what are you dithering about women!

Well my senitents about tescos are it always seems to have smelly people in the unwashed kind. Asda - and I'd bet my chuffin house on it that it aways has some twats standing outside smoking in doorway - move the fuck away, away from my kids. When I smoked I never smoked near other people unless it was in the outdoor bit of pubs in latter years.

It boils my piss it does. So my guilty pleasure is M & S. spend less as less to buy.

timidviper Mon 18-Nov-13 23:25:30

Look, rinsing mince is bad for you! This is not a Daily Fail link but it was in there too so it must be true!

Our big Tesco has just been done up so is ok, Asda on the other hand requires a shower when you get home, in fact a full decontamination unit would be good

Maryz Mon 18-Nov-13 23:32:10

I trained my boys not to dribble on the seat/leave the seat up/leave skid marks/spend fucking hours in there.

They forgot it all the day they turned 13 [sob]

And I swear the eat loo roll. And toothpaste, but that's another thread.

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 23:36:23


My DS is nearly 8. The skids are deinately inherited from DH. I have trained him now to wipe arse, wipe bowl. But only just.

Don't ever look at your bathroom walls next to toilet in full sunlight - you will see them, the splashes.

I now clean said piss of walls - and by god I let them know about it.

FreudiansSlipper Mon 18-Nov-13 23:37:36

I do not just like Mathew Wright I love him

Rinsing mince is just odd. Ex used to before it was cooked but he also added cucumber to stirfry's

I love bleach lots is tipped down the toilet and I have a bleaching day every few months I get high on the stuff while cleaning

I am trying to train mine to do nothing but ghosts grin
Works better for constipated offspring...

feelingood Mon 18-Nov-13 23:41:39

nice link PCD

Freud how fucked up would it be for you then of Mathew turned up naked cept ofr apron but rinsing mince, in your kitchen on a bleaching what would you do?

thebody Mon 18-Nov-13 23:44:29

I park in the mother and baby bays.. I have a toilet brush.

rinsing mince is unhinged.

thebody Mon 18-Nov-13 23:45:57

I don't have a baby I just do. I shoplift from Netto as well.

Well if mince-rinsing is frowned upon, what I do with mine must be considered reprehensible... If making anything involving mince, I boil the (steak) mince the night before, leave it to cool overnight, then scoop the solidified, congealed fat off the top the following evening and use the mince in whatever it is I'm cooking blush grin.

FreudiansSlipper Tue 19-Nov-13 00:03:37

I have no idea feelingood confused am anxious now what if Mr Wright does not share my love of bleach

I am not sure I could get over that along with the mince washing sad tragically for us love does not conquer all sad sad sad

DoesZingBumpLookBigInThis Tue 19-Nov-13 00:44:58


I care about absolutely everything you do.

especially when you are being a klutz! grin

TheRealAmandaClarke Tue 19-Nov-13 04:42:55

Well, I googled MR. hmm
When you say "like"......

TheRealAmandaClarke Tue 19-Nov-13 04:43:53

It seems I do care.
So YAbu grin

TheRealAmandaClarke Tue 19-Nov-13 04:44:32


TEEurkeyDay Tue 19-Nov-13 06:24:07

The obsession with skid marks on Mumsnet boggles my mind. I just leave them in the bowl. Subsequent flushing eventually gets rid of them.

My husband is now trained to do the same.

It's such a British/Irish thing to worry about.
