We all have our ickiest moments at home and I am finally go to break the ice and talk about the one that plagues us here too often: an overflowing toilet!
That’s pretty icky, right? I blame a certain Mayor who wanted to save water. While a noble idea, the backlash to this project was that many toilets do not have enough power! Also, if you are going to have to flush more than once it defeats the purpose of the program. I have to report that the low flow toilet, as a way to reduce water over usage, is a big NYC failure!
Thankfully we always have 2 things in our bathroom at all times to help us “wade” through the situation: Clorox spray bleach, and Clorox wipes. Ans yes, I buy my Clorox wipes by the truckload:
And now our son is old enough to join us in the fun! And fun it was that first hilarious time he was responsible for clogging the toilet. It was almost a right of passage in our home when our 10 year old joined the club, a mini hippopotamess! Now I understand why they make the one ply toilet tissue item!
Those are the everyday moments – true, spontaneous and imperfect. Also quite icky, but you have the choice to laugh or cry, I hope you will choose to laugh! Thankfully Clorox is here to help. Did I mention that my mother-in-law foretold this and told everyone to invest in Clorox years ago! She knows all!
Now it’s your turn to share your ickiest moment!
