I just read your other post and am now PMSL at you! grin

Fill the bath with hot water, throw in a dishwasher tablet and stir with a wooden spoon. Then leave for an hour.

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 14:44:00

No - a very good idea indeed, especially if you put it on the intensive or hottest wash.

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 14:44:31

If it is that rank chuck it out and buy a cheap one from a pound store.

People put mooncups and bog brushes in, there was a thread about it once.

Do it, it wouldn't bother me, as long as it was on a 65 degree wash.

I have, but then I put my mooncup in there aswell.

its getting near rankiness.i did buy another-god knows why-he prefers to pee in his pants rather than potty- but he likes the almost rank potty as its bigger and comfier,its one of those seat ones.i cant afford to buy another like that.

Mind you, I once yelped at dh and leaped across the room to stop him putting the cat's bowls in the dishwasher. Guess some of the posters on this thread might think I was being a bit fussy...

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 14:47:05

so people do?
hmm,i could use it only for yucky things and re discover the art of washing dishes in the sink?(i dont think i could actually)

ChasingSquirrels Sun 19-Jul-09 14:48:50

oh, I did dog bowls in there aswell, and chicken feed containers.

Dumbledoresgirl Sun 19-Jul-09 14:52:51

I always put my cats' dishes in the dishwasher. grin

I would baulk at the idea of putting a potty or a loo brush into one though. Actually, tbh, I am struggling to understand how a potty can get "rank" if it is wiped after each use. Would you care to elaborate?

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 14:55:43

seriously it it rinsed and wiped(with a bathroom wipe) after each use.soaked over night once a week with washing powder(probably wrong thing).we are not dirty gone a bit yellowy in places[vomit]

ChasingSquirrels Sun 19-Jul-09 14:55:53

no, wouldn't put a loo brush in.
And also struggling to think how a potty gets "rank", hence why I would have no problem putting on in.

If the plastic is discolouring, I don't think putting it in the dishwsher will make much difference. (in other words, don't bother!)

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 14:59:33

i never said it was just needs something extra!

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 15:01:01

korma id love for him to use the loo.he does sometimes-probably more than potty but i like to have it just incase.maybe i should just chuck it.

Dumbledoresgirl Sun 19-Jul-09 15:02:52

Cheesesarnie, you said it was "getting near rankiness". TBH, I think it sounds ok if it is only discolouring. Is the user of it your last child? It won't be long before he is not needing it anymore.

cheesesarnie Sun 19-Jul-09 15:04:06

so i did-whoops.someone else said rank firstgrin-im so tired!

yes last child,no more potty training for me.
