This Money NEEDS to be Laundred!

17 07 2007

In Japan a unknown philanthropist (of sorts) has been putting envelopes filled with money in public toilets, with a small handwritten note telling people the money is for “self enrichment”

Hummm, what kind of wack job puts money IN a toilet, and who pulls anything OUT of a toilet?

I certainly hope these people washed their hands afterwards!

When Your Toilet Gets Clogged

27 06 2007

 

OK fine.  I ADMIT it.  I flushed a *few* paper towels down the toilet.

I was cleaning it at the time.

Anyways, long story short – the toilet clogged and over flowed.

We needed a solution FAST that didn’t include phoning out one of those truly expensive all-night plumbers.

We Googled it.

  1. Empty out as much water from the bowl as you can
  2. Poor a half cup of (good quality) liquid dish soap.  Let it sit for 10-15 minutes
  3. Boil a large kettle or pot of water
  4. Poor the boiling water into the bowl.  Let sit another 10-15 minutes.
  5. Plunge as usual
  6. Flush and VOILA.  The clog will be gone.

As a side note, do not put ‘Liquid Plumber’ into toilets.  It says so right on the package, but last night when I made the run for dish soap I bought a bottle, just in case.  I didn’t read it until I got home (who reads labels anyways. . .  . 😉
