Mum uses shaving cream to stop toilet stinking of pee after sons use it

Anyone who’s ever been around children knows how messy (and smelly) they can be.

While we love the kiddies, cleaning up after them is not always the nicest of tasks, especially where it concerns the toilet.

One mum was tired of her little boys peeing and missing the bowl (a problem that shows no signs of slowing with maturity) and resorted to an ingenious hack.

Rebecca Seddon grabbed some shaving foam and smeared it across the toilet floor and even the bathroom walls.

The mum from Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, shared the trick on the Facebook page Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips, where she’d heard of it before trying it herself.

At first, she was a little sceptical about its effectiveness but followers of the 200,000-strong group that she would update them if the lingering pee smell disappeared.

‘Shaving foam is meant to get rid of the smell of pee, [and I have] two young boys who think nothing of turning around mid-flow because they simply can’t wait to get back to what they are doing,’ she wrote on the post.

‘If this works I’ll be stocking up with cupboards full of the stuff. Can’t wait for the day I don’t have to wipe the seat before I sit down.’

Rebecca then tried it out, splattering the cream all over the bathroom before wiping it all off.

Lo and behold, the Gillette cream worked a treat, not leaving a single whiff of pee behind.

She updated the post and wrote: ‘Well I don’t know if it’s just psychological or not, but left the house for a few hours, came back and straight upstairs to have a sniff and it seems to have worked.

‘This has 100% worked! Not a whiff of pee this morning!

‘There’s been no more peeing around the toilet either, but that could be something to do with the fact I told them last night next time wee was around the toilet and not in it, I’d be using their toothbrushes to clean it.’

A fair threat.

Rebecca even shared a joke with the followers: ‘Gillette, the best a toilet can get’.

Her post went down a treat, amassing more than 1,000 likes – but it’s not the first time mums have used the messy trick.

Another mum-of-three said the tip also worked for her boys, who had a hard time aiming.

Other suggested making a game of it by putting in a ping pong ball and asking the kids to aim for it.

Someone still has to fetch the ball out, so it’s perhaps not the best idea.
