I put some of this in my toilet. It's supposed to foam up and loosen stubborn stains. I tried to put a capful in but my pack was a solid mass instead of free flowing powder and when I tried to pour the whole pack fell in.
You know those comedy programmes where foam keeps coming at you? Sometimes it's dough or alien goop, but you know the thing, the stuff just keeps rising and rising and rising. I had that in my bathroom. It just kept foaming. I prodded it with the loo brush but it just got worse. I didn't dare let it sit to work. I thought I would be finding scented foam cascading down the stairs, sparkling as it came. I had to flush three times.
Now I have a bathroom that reeks of second rate fabric conditioner and I'm worrying about the plumbing. I keep expecting the drains to burp. I won't try that stuff again. It may be nice but I don't think I'm grown up enough to use it.
It's better than yesterday. Around about 12.15pm both Tesco and the large van with the new window turned up and got very tense about parking at the same time as one of bear's pals fell and hurt his arm and I was trying to ring a parent while getting the lad to see if he could wiggle his fingers. Fortunately the lad was fine, Tesco were awesome and the window was fitted without incident. We are half way through half term holiday and I'm happy that we've survived so well.
