My house is pretty clean considering I have two little boys. It gets messy but it isn't dirty. At least I like to think that it is clean. But this week as the humidity rolls in, I am starting to wonder. The smells that are coming from my bathroom would stop any mom in her tracks.
How can my boys miss the toilet every time they pee?
Seriously, I could mop daily and it would still be dirty. Even once I do mop, I know that I will still smell the urine oozing from the bathroom. It hides. It lurks. It won't quit.
If you live with only women or girls, you have no idea. You will think that you do. You will tell me that little girls don't always get it right. I remember. I lived with my two little sisters. I hear you. But boys are so messy in the bathroom.
My oldest son is pretty good at hitting the mark except in the middle of the night. It is my littlest boy. He can't pee straight to save his life. I have lectured. I have made him clean it up. I have nearly cried. But, he is just a messy little guy.
I have looked online for tricks. I have tried to find the magic formula to make my bathrooms smell cleaner. My friends and my sister talk about it. There has to be someone out there with a solution. I haven't had much luck. The only one I can come up with to share is my own. I pour floor cleaner (not watered down) around the toilet. I let it ooze into the spaces around the toilet for a minute or so. I then soak it up with a paper towel. You will be surprised with all of the urine that comes out. Be sure to go back a little later. Some oozes out and it looks pretty gross.
Do you know any tricks so that your bathroom doesn't smell like a barn? Any tips that I am missing? Help!
