Expecting visitors, I cleaned like I meant it last week.

That’s right, you heard me: my house is clean.

It feels weird.

That’s that topic covered.


An idle thought

I once saw a safety advert which said that mixing cleaning chemicals in a toilet can lead to explosions.

I wondered this: if I put neat bleach in the toilet, forget it’s there, and then do a wee, will I set light to my bottom?

    I do believe Mythbusters covered this topic in one of their shows. Do you get Mythbusters in the UK?

    I don’t think bleach is the one to worry about, it might be a combination of all the chemicals in other cleaning products that might make you go boom. Don’t go boom Tilly I would use ditilled white vinegar for cleaning and baking soda, much safer and cheaper and you don’t go boom.

    I don’t know about setting fire to your bottom…..but I can tell you that half a bottle of shampoo and bath bomb in the toilet has tremendous results.

    LOL I don’t know. Why don’t you try it first and then let me know. hehe

    Not when you wee, but take care when you fart!

    Too clean to use … I will go next door *smile – and I hope you know that blench kills all the good bacterial too – so the use of too much of it – can give a terrible smell. And as Viv says … be careful when you fart .. so you don’t land in Tokyo.

    Oh, no, please don’t try that dangerous combination! We want you alive when your guest arrives!

    I had a great giggle at all your comments. I wouldn’t take the chance. My buns aren’t insured, although hubby says they should be. 😆

    funny! Been there done that …fizzled!

    My house is clean also. The guests have just left, so the house is about to spiral into squalor over the next couple of hours. I am exHAUSTed.

    So behind on everything else.

    That was better than a spoon of medicine! 😆

    I’m back, Did you know that keyboards and mobile phones carry more germs than a loo?

    Love the look of your clean NEW toilet! I don’t know about setting your butt aflame, but I would certainly be worried about bleach splashing my girlie bits!

    I am the BEST last minute cleaner !!!!!


  19. Viciously Sweet May 30, 2013 at 00:46 #

    I cleaned my house for visitors too. It feels so weird because it’s so clean!


  20. Three Well Beings May 30, 2013 at 06:37 #

    Ka-BOOM! Scary thought! 🙂

    You’ll certainly risk a burnt bottom for sure!
