Do You Flush the Toilet Every Time?

Juliet Farmer

I have a confession to make: Not only do I regularly pee in the shower, but I also don't flush the toilet every time I go to the bathroom.

In fact, I firmly believe in the credo "if it's yellow, let it mellow; if it's brown, flush it down."

I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the fact that I work from home. Alone (well, except for the cats and dog). All day.

And I drink a lot of water, which makes for many trips to the bathroom.

Confession number two (no pun intended): I usually skip flushing (the urine) all day. I also try to use very little toilet paper. And yes, for those thinking EWWW right now, for the record, I wash my hands after. Every time. (So maybe the water I don't use flushing compensates for the water used to wash my hands?)

Ironically, my husband, who only uses toilet paper when necessary (interpret that how you will), always flushes. But he doesn't seem to mind that I don't flush every time. Or, at least not enough to file for divorce. Yet.
