Well, that's me scrubbed up then. I don't do dancing under a shower every day, I save up my water rations and have a bath every fortnight, whether I need it or not ;0) Having a soak for half an hour is very relaxing, I can gather my thoughts, take stock, and make a plan for what I am going to do next. I might nod off for a few minutes, then turn the hot water tap on and wait for the warm glow to creep up towards my chin. Bliss.
What only one bath in two weeks? Shock horror!!! Yep, I don't do a dirty job, I don't sweat much and don't stink, and even if I did, there is only me who gets close enough to catch the pong. Of course I do have my cat licks as I call them, wash the essentials with a bowl of hot water, the bits that show, or are prone to whif a bit, the three 'F's' as I call them. I'll leave you to work that out ;-))
It bugs me that after you have a bath you then have to clean the bath, what a pain. Well I have come up with an idea that gets rid of that chore. When I have finished scrubbing myself, just before I get out, I rub my hands all around the sides of the bath, (you could use a cloth) on the waterline or just above it, because that's where most of the grime sticks. No special cleaner needed.
It seems daft to me to let the water out, then turn the taps on again to clean it, why not use the water already in it, and while I am still sitting in it. It's much easier than drying yourself, putting your clothes on, then leaning over it to clean it. This way, all you do is pull the plug out, get out, then swish the last bit of water down the plug hole along with the toe nails. Job done.
Another idea I had for cleaning the bathroom sink is to keep an old wash up brush close by, then when you have brushed your teeth, or washed your bits, have a quick scrub round with the brush as the water goes down the plug hole. If everyone did this in a multi person household there would be no moaning about the sink being left dirty. Again no special cleaner required. Toodle Pip.
