Yes. I am posting a picture of a potty.









Yes. One in my house. See that beautiful ring around the water? I guess it’s time to clean the toilets.



This would rank up there as my most despised grown-up chore.




And yes, I may have been a spoiled brat and never had to scrub the inside of a toilet in my younger years. And when I lived here, I never touched the toilet because I was afraid of the infectuous diseases I may catch. I popped alot of squats.




How often are you even supposed to clean toilets? I clean them after about 3 weeks of seeing this ring. But it is usually just because I’m afraid something is going to jump up and bite me. Like some kind of fungus monster.




For those of you that will probably never visit again since I just posted a dirty toilet on my potential food blog, please note that I live with 1 man, and have 2 brothers that frequently visit.



That should explain it. And please send help.

    I probably clean the bathroom every other week and really don’t like doing it that much. But I actually HATE cleaning the shower, I have to get in the stupid thing and scrub. Ick!

    i have one of those toilets that ALWAYS gets that stupid ring. so i clean it a lot-probably a quick sweep with the toilet brush every week, and a proper clean ever 3 weeks or so?

    my mom swears by those clorox toilet wands where it’s got the cleaning stuff built in and then the scrubby part pops off (using a handle, not touching) to be flushed… i’m too po for fancy cleaning things though

    I have not heard the term “popped a squat” in AGES. I think I like you, already :)

    I hate cleaning the bathroom. I usually clean it at least once a week, only because it doesn’t take as long if I keep up with it.

    Bathrooms are gross. But even grosser when dirty. I recommend rubber gloves, Comet, and a long handled scrub brush.

    Or just make your husband do it ;)

    I’d clean the toilet at least once a week — that way it doesn’t build up and turn into an even worse chore! Can’t give much advice about the best cleansers, sadly, as I use eco-friendly cleaners (ie: baking soda, vinegar, and water) for all of my cleaning needs. But this link has some advice that basically approximates my bathroom-cleaning regime:

    Using baking soda as your abrasive cleanser ends up taking a bit more elbow grease, but if you clean frequently, it works well.

    I try to clean the bathrooms once a week, but at least every other week. And I use those toilet wand things – it just makes it easier. But not the flushable kind as those don’t work as well as the scrubby kind you can throw away.

    That ring is caused by hard water, no worries. But you do have to clean more than once a month!!! Get a good pair of rubber gloves!!!

    My least favorite chores?? Cleaning the shower, and mopping the floors (because I have to dry the floors after I mop or they get all streaky, so it takes forever)

    The toilet is the one thing I think we can all agree sucks! Gotta be done though! I usually wash it down once a week so it’s usually not too bad. Honestly, though, I find cleaning the tub more annoying. AHH. Oh if we were only rich and could hire :)

    Haha, you’re hilarious. I probably clean the toilet about once every two weeks. But there’s a hard water stain in mine that I can’t get rid of :(

    Ugh, that thing. Hate cleaning the toilet. Luckily, I get my daughter to clean her own bathroom and my husband and I sometimes trade off on the other two.

    You obvoiusly haven’t heard of KABOOM Toilet Cleaner. It’s s little dispenser that you put inside your toliet in between the water fill hose…they have these little chlorine tablets. Everytime you flush, it rinses the toilet with chlorine! Magic! Just remember to refill ..(put the tablets in every few months!!) I just brush it every so often and it always smells clean.

    haha i would actually rather clean the toilet than do dishes, i HATE doing dishes, and don’t want to admit that dan and i let them pile up like we’re living in some frat house. yuck. anway, i use the clorox toilet wand. yes, it might be more expensive, but it takes about 30 seconds to do it and you just throw the yuckiness away.

    Knowing your beloved husband for a period of 10 years now, I firmly believe that you are just wasting your time in trying to pretty up the Porcelain Princess. Save your time and invest in an port a john for him.

    I advice to clean your toilet every day that way you’ll never have that ring and you can forget an infection. XD

    I have used Kaboom tile cleaner but you are telling me there is something to put in the toilet?! I gotta check this out. Is this something that turns your toilet water bright blue, green or purple? Because my grandma used to have that. I loved it when I was little…
