I subscribe to a few blogs, mostly things like LifeHacker and household stuff because, well, anything to make the annoying little shit in life a little easier right?
So this evening I read an article from one of the blogs I follow that describes how to make “toilet bombs” for when your toilet is clogged.
Now, this is a big issue in our house, and seems to have become even more prevalent lately for some reason.
I eat a minimum of 5-6 full meals a day, that means the toilets here in the condo get a LOT of use, as you could imagine. And, my sister loves using tons of toilet paper.
Add to this that I recently started on a medication for my blood sugar that causes me to lose a good bit of it in my urine, which even with a Clorox bleach cake in the tank, is causing a mold growth issue (sugar feeds mold). In the bowl, that’s ok. Easy enough to clean it. But what about down in those pipes where it can grow unrestricted? This is, I suspect, the main reason that my toilets clog so much lately.
So anyway. I’m inspired by the post on One Good Thing by Jillee today, and you can bet I’m going to try her suggestion, because I have NO interest in snaking my toilet drains just to clean out mold build up, yeah? So…. I’ll give it a try and see what happens.
