Workman had a messy shit in our toilet (lighthearted)

We had some work done today - and due to some of the work being done in the downstairs loo, we had removed the throne for better access, thus what we call our "tradesman's bog" was not available.

When the very nice chap doing the work asked politely to use our bathroom - he was here for several hours - of course we agreed. But once he'd left (an hour or so later) and I popped into the loo myself, I found what can only be described as a turd storm. The patterns left in the bowl could have won the Turner prize. .

Now I have no issue with the poor guy needing to download, if you gotta go you gotta go. And OBVIOUSLY I do not possess anything as repugnant as a toilet brush, so I don't suppose there was much he could do...but personally I'd have made an effort with a grimace and wadded loo roll (yes even underwater) until all traces were gone. AIBU? WWYD if you desperately needed a pony in someone's house but left a mark?

Caveat - all written in good humour, I bear him and his bowels no ill will. He made a lovely job of the work and decorating my porcelain.

They're for cleaning the toilet when you clean the toilet. Get under the rim and below the water mark.

And also 'flushable' toilet ducks aren't twatting flushable. Stobbit! Nothing goes down the pan other than bodily fluids and toilet paper Angry

No one has suggested my technique. If there's no brush or bleach, I layer loo roll over skid mark ensuring the loo roll ends in the water. The looroll sucks up the liquid, keeping the skid mark moist. Who knows how effective this is but it means I don't have to see the offending skidder.

Another vote for bleach here. And maybe it's our diet but usually dh and I don't leave any works of art behind! If it happens, bleach!

Does eco bleach work?

gamerchick · 29/07/2017 23:25

No bleach, bleach should be used sparingly as it's bad for our oceans.

I like the toilet roll method above better.

There is a toilet brush next to my loo but I woul never use it to clean poo.
If there are skids in my loo, I wipe off with wads of loo roll, flush then bleach.
I use the toilet brush as a cleaning aid when the loo is clear of poo. I bleach, leave it for a bit then use the brush to get the harder to teach bits of the loo.

Teach = reach

Buy a cheap wilko big brush, 69p ish and get rid once a month. You need a toilet brush!

sunshineandrainbowsparkles · 29/07/2017 23:48

Toilet brushes are disgusting! Would you rather his poo was stuck to the bottom of your toilet brush. Just put some rubber gloves on, pour a bottle of bleach down and sort it. I would definitely have got my hands in there to clean it myself if it were me though, how embarrassing!!

Does eco bleach work?

Slimthistime · 29/07/2017 23:52

Oh dear
I am now also flummoxed by the outdoor poo stick.

balsamicbarbara · 30/07/2017 00:09

Haven't touched a toilet brush in 20 years and have never got poo on my hands using toilet paper. How clumsy would you have to be!

TrishanFlips · 30/07/2017 00:17

Hate look brushes. Thought of them makes me have.

TrishanFlips · 30/07/2017 00:18

heave. Boak

You need napalm to get rid of a workman shit properly. Trufax.

MargaretTwatyer · 30/07/2017 00:19

(I know this coz DH is one)

Thinkingofausername1 · 30/07/2017 08:37

Once I let the window cleaner use the loo. BIG mistake. I have a loo brush and he couldn't be bothered to use it or open the window

MaximaDeWit · 30/07/2017 08:48

Toilet brushes are a necessary evil, sorry OP. Although they shouldn't be used to scrap shit off the toilet - YUK! Bleach until the shit/skidders have gone and loo brush to CLEAN the toilet.

If DH uses the loo brush to scrub his skidders it gets binned and a fresh new one goes out

EvilDoctorBallerinaDuck · 30/07/2017 09:03

DH used to be a decorator, but does all his shits in the morning when he gets up. DD 9 (who isn't DH's so it isn't genetic) does shits too big to flush. Is she destined to be a tradeswoman of some kind? ๐Ÿ˜‚

BeepBeepMOVE · 30/07/2017 09:08

He should have used a wad of loo roll to wipe it at least!

JensenAcklesUndercrackers · 30/07/2017 09:08

It smelt like he'd eaten the devil the night before and it had been trying to fight its way back to hell ever since.

Laughing so hard at this ๐Ÿ˜‚ DC think I've gone slightly mad.
