Recently DH has stopped flushing the toilet after he urinates. It REALLY grosses me out but he insists he doesn't want to wake DD up from naps. So although I put Method toilet duct into the bowls every morning a lovely layer of impossible-to-remove scum seems to be developing, not to mention the smell.
Aside from removing DH permanently from the household (tempting) is there a good way of removing the scum from the bowls and leaving a fresh smell?
I think I've just made myself vomit. Sorry if I've made anyone else too!
Does it wake your dd up? If it doesn't, maybe take your dh upstairs to the bathroom and show him that it doesn't!
He's being daft.
Apparently the best way to clean it properly is to have a non-scratch scourer that is just for cleaning the loo, donning a pair of rubber gloves and getting your hand down there... I've not quite psyched myself up to doing it yet though.
i echo mousy - weirdly the cheaper and nastier the coke the better it works, denture tablets overnight once a week - and the lakeland tablets are good too.
My husband thinks not flushing is better for the environment. I keep telling him that this is my environment but he doesn't frigging listen. Other women have affairs - I gain a real pleasure out of (very occasionally) not recycling!
Ah ha! I thought I just lived in a very hard water area but now the real problem is obvious. I have an eco-friendly, DD friendly, DH too!
I have tried no end of cola, Harpic Power tablets and industrial strength acids from Robert Dyas. All of them have an effect, but are not amazing so I use them in combination with a good scrub with a soft pumice stone. Unpleasant job - but it works.
