We had pland for her to perm my hair today. Anyway she cooked dinner and we ate. A while later my stomach was breaking down. I sadi girl your going to hate me in a few minutes. I got up to go to her rest room. She said wait girl.. wait a minute. I then said what for she said to sprinke some tide in the toilet bowl. I laughed and thought she was crazy. Well my dear friends. Taht bowl would have been mad at me but it wasn't. That was a great idea of hers. I had never heard of doing that. When I was done there was no sign of it. I loved the idea so much. I am going to buy a bucket just to keep over my toilet for those moments of.... That bowl cleaned itself and freshens the rest room. Do you think it's a great idea?

I never heard of putting tide, or any laundry detergent, into the toilet before a poop. What is the purpose of it? I know it would make things smell good I suppose, but why not just use toilet bowl cleaner? Or the blue thing you attach to the side? (or put in the tank)

I would have to ask her that one. I do know I don't like using them for my toilet. It mostly because they don't remind me to change them..

It never would have occurred to me to use Tide in the toilet bowl. Interesting! I may need to buy some powdered Tide and try that out sometime.

Even with the crazy mind that I live with. I would not be pulling your leg. Try it for yurself. I tld her I was going to ut that here. You know she said she has done that for years. I found it very interesting. So I plan to have the soap sitting in my bowl. Just for the cleaning of the bowl period. I do hope you tell me how it worked for you. I have no powder detergent right now. Plus I let go of a bomb and would hav ebeen shamed if I left her house smelly. She has a very small apt. And bathroom. LOL Your so funny you know :)

Sheputs it in the bowl before people do nunber 2. I would think anytime would be fine.. I have a cat so I can't do that. But dear I can now drink milk and secure my toilets safety. :)

That is a good idea, specially if you have the time before doing the deed.

Wow I think that is a fantastic idea, if it works. I believe you that it works so I am going to try it too. I have never heard of this before. I wonder if it has to be Tide or if any laundry detergent would work. Why not. I clean houses for a living and I have never heard of this before. But I guess this wouldn't have anything to do with cleaning houses. I wonder if it helps with the smell while doing your business.

Well, this sounds like a good idea. A certain person in this household sure makes a mess. I think instead of Tide, I'll get the generic kind - cheap of me, but I can't see using the good stuff. I'm sure it will work well. ..Whit

I have never heard of using Tide this way, but I am going to try it. I do not like any of the toilet bowel cleaners and they do not leave they do not leave my bathroom smelling clean. I may try using the Listerine as well. I guess I have just never thought of either of these.

I never heard of that, One Mylotter said they put listerine in the toliet bowl, it makes the bathroom smell good plus it kills germs, I use any kind of mouth wash if I don't use Listerine I go to the dollar store.
