TEFLON TOILETBOWLS???

Postby taxico » Sat, 24 May 2008 7:34 pm

i'm an undomesticated male living alone overseas, away from the good missus.

fired the part time house keeper recently because she was a slimy nogood thieving lilttle thing.

naturally, certain things get "messed up" in the house. and the inevitable use of disposable cutlery and paper towels come into play...

yet some things will always require elbow grease. now, is it just me, or do other guys around the world expect their toilet bowls to COME PRE-COATED WITH TEFLON...

i am wondering now if (other than using chlorox with teflon juice - does not work) it's possible to get a bunch of this teflon from 3M or whoever makes it, and squirt it all over my commode...

man. hopefully then my toilet won't need to be washed for so long i'll die of gladness!

okay. rant over. yes, yes, i'm a lazy guy and previously my wife did all the cleaning... i'll just have to look for a new help!

oh oh. i found out this trick... to be shared with the men only. or extremely lazy women. or people who need more fibre in their diet.

fill a giant jug or container or big cup with water, and lift it high above the bowl and pour...

most if not all of the offending produce tends to gets "rubbed out" that way. otherwise, repeat until desired result is achieved.

and installing those bleach or blue tablets help. i use both the blue tablet in the tank and a long block of harpic bleach thing under the rim.

for me, it's only important if it seems clean. and smelling is believing.

okay, rant over. again.

Guess your shower sprayer doesn't reach far enough, eh?

If there isn't one already hiding behind your bowl or under the sink, you could buy a bowl brush at the market or a "goods" department store.

Celery is good for fibre.


P.S. If you fired the help, who's going to do your laundry and ironing?

well, the shower head isn't removable and is placed too far away from the bowl. there're no faucets or piping below or behind the bowl to install a small one either...

i guess i should eat more celery.

for my laundering needs, i'm friendly with my dry cleaner, and for home wear (sweats, t-shirts, etc) i have my washer dryer handy. the dry cleaners presses everything too, before i pick 'em up.

the house keeper basically vacuums the floor/carpet, empties my dustbuster, clears up the kitchen, bathroom and waters my 1 potted plant.

she also takes out the trash if it's too much to deal with, and before that, throw out anything expired or rotten from the pantry and fridge. i believe she makes it a point to launder my shower curtains every now and then too.

at least i think so, because they're beginning to take on a strange color at the bottom, which has never happened before... this reminds me to buy a bunch of new shower curtains.

i don't actually own an ironing board although i have a pretty advanced looking iron with displays, switches and knobs that comes complete with its mini watering can.

or whatever you call that little thing that allows you to pour water into the iron. i purchased the iron thinking i could iron, but i realized a bed doesn't quite cut it, neither does the couch, cos the shirt doesn't quite fall out properly on those surfaces.

the shirt doesn't get ironed properly on the kitchen island either, although it folds out nicely. i've ruined a shirt doing that once... i wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

as for my commode... i did use a bowl brush. i own 2 actually. one heavy, shiny stainless steel-type that came with the apartment, and another i bought because it had a "shield" thing whatchamacallit which i thought would be more hygenic.

it doesn't work. and i find it quite appalling (and an incentive to wear surgical gear) to avoid the back splash when the bristles kicks about during a good scrub.

or i'm just 100% pure lazy bones. but i honestly don't find it nice to have toilet water liberally sprinkled all over my face, in my eyes, on my lips and off my clothes...

heck, i SHOULD use the bathrooms away from home, but i currently conduct myself before i leave the house and/or after getting home.

i could try and "retool" that timing, i'm sure... that's an idea! meanwhile, i'll write down to get a big box o' fibresure...

(although these are my true-to-life replies, i advise against judging me based on them... *coughs*)

I feel for the little woman when you next meet up. Your posts are definitely good for a laugh, though!

Am sure the hired help was using the bowl brush.
It's all in the technique.
Use the brush from side to side (wrist action) to avoid toilet bowl splashback.
Your hired help doesn't don contamination suits, so you shouldn't need to either.
Oh, and the cap for the brush is by no means "hygenic," unless you're disinfecting the whole thing with every use.

Ironing should be done on an ironing board, not on the bed, the couch, the kitchen counter top. :roll:
Don't even think of doing it on that synthetic fibre carpet.

Ironing boards are really cheap.
They are meant to handle the high temperature.
If you don't like the full size board with the retractable legs, there are some cute small ones that can be used on a table or counter top.

You hired help sure blew a cushy gig.
