Simple Enough.

We started doing something with our toilet that may gross you out. I promise you, it's really not that bad.

If it's yellow - let it mellow.

If it's brown, flush it down.

Seriously. It's so simple and doesn't bother either of us. (However, if it's been sitting for a few hours, we definitely flush it. We want to save water, but not completely sacrifice our noses.) We save TONS of water and now when I go to my parents house, it feels weird to constantly flush after myself.

Wow. I can't believe I just wrote publicly about our toilet usage.

potty humor :)


  1. Good idea. I might start getting more "forgetful" about pee flushing :)

  2. I love this tip. My husband and I practice the same at our house - just try to remember to flush before guests come over. I also love the new "european" toliets avalaible in the US with the 'half flush' or 'full flush' options.

  3. just found your blog today! we're not frequent flushers either. The only problem is that our cat has fallen in a couple of times : /

  4. I do it, too! no reason to flush every time (well unless it is #2)

    yay for sharing. i'm glad you did. I think you will find many peeps join in your eco friendly ways~
