|It doesn't pertain directly to CDs, but most of us spend plenty of time around our toilets these days, dumping poop, etc., so I wanted to share something I recently figured out.
Back story: I stopped using a toilet brush a while back (when DH let DS play with it and I freaked out, I had to ask myself why I was keeping this thing in my house, anyway), and switched to gloves with a scrubber. But then you have these gloves to rinse off and a scrubber or sponge to store (also icky, although easier to soak in vinegar or suchlike), and most toilet cleaners are pretty nasty environmentally. My husband and I save the water from running the shower water to hot and use it to bucket flush our toilet, and a kind of etiquette has developed, that you don't bucket flush if there isn't also enough water to add some to the bowl after the flush, as the bucket flush leaves the water level very very low.
The other day after I bucket flushed and was looking at the toilet thinking that it was probably time to don the gloves, as our water leaves some deposits over time, it suddenly occurred to me that now was the time to clean, when the toilet was virtually empty but for an inch of new water at the bottom. So I grabbed my pile of cloth wipes that aren't being used a whole lot anymore and cleaned that thing with vinegar; no worries about the vinegar being too diluted to deal with the water stains (also has some anti-bac properties), and the cloths just went into the diaper pail. Definitely the easiest, least icky toilet-cleaning experience of my life, and I filed my bucket and went and did the other toilets in the house, too--so much easier to clean when dry! Not that it will probably make me want to clean them more often, but I will definitely be using this technique again. After you clean, you do want to add some water back in, depending maybe on your toilet--ours "spits" a bit if the water starts out too low for the next, regular flush, and of course it's much cleaner if that poop you're dumping out of the diaper lands in water!
