I touched on this in my post about our trip away, but it has been eating away at me ever since so I need to know…
Why on earth do people have blue toilet water??
Ok I get that it comes from one of those hang on the side of the bowel things which personally, I don’t really go in for. I mean I am sure they make your toilet smell ‘nice’ after every flush or something like that but I am not really into that air freshener smell. Plus, they always seemed like an expensive way of keeping your loo nice when a squirt of vinegar or a bit of bleach will do the same… tho I guess not smell so sweet. And no my toilet is by no means pristine and could probably use a good clean a lot more often than it gets (egads I just admitted my loo was not ‘fresh’ to the general public!!)
But all that aside.. why do they need to make the water blue?
It is a really electric blue too, well it is when it is fresh. Even over the few days we stayed in the flat the toilet water got progressively less and less blue, when we left on the fourth day it was a kind of washed out pale blue ink colour.
At first I thought maybe it had something to do with ‘hiding’ what goes in the loo? Then I noticed that when you pee in it, it goes a weird grass green colour and worse.. number twos go a really revolting khaki green brown shade! This rather impressed the girls, as did the blue toilet water…. it was all that I could do to stop them putting their hands in to play in it!
Can you imagine puking into blue toilet water? Imagine what colour it would go? Ok yeah way too gross for the majority of my readers I guess, but if you had spewed as much as I did while pregnant (yes every day for 29 weeks with the girls and every day for 42 weeks with Muski) then the aesthetics of where you spew becomes rather important.
By no means do I intend to offend anyone who does have blue toilet water… I am sure it is lovely and that there is a perfectly good reason for it… I just need to know what that is!
