Minature Bathroom Strikes Again

8:39 AM Edit This 14 Comments »
It's raining today, so if you've been reading for a year or so, you know what I did with my hair. But I had to do it in the living room because Minature Bathroom? It stinks!

Back in the Spring, I asked for help with my musty smelling bathroom. Many of you suggested that I try putting out bowls of vinegar - that it would eat the smell. Only a few of you have been in Tiny Apartment and Miniature Bathroom is right next to Sleeping Quarters, so if Miniature Bathroom doesn't smell very good, the sleeping is not so nice. And guess what? The vinegar thing works like a charm! I just put a bowl of it behind the toilet and when it's all evaporated, I put another out. Well - I got a little behind after vacation and forgot about it. So last night, when I got home - sweaty and tired from dancing - and laid down in bed? My nose was offended.

So I threw back the covers in great irritation and stomped off to Galley Kitchen, grabbed the vinegar and because it was late, I just poured some down the shower drain - thinking, "Well. If it's good in a bowl, it will be JUST FINE down the drain!" And then curled back in bed and dreamed such lovely dreams. Walking through vineyards in Italy, stopping by cafes, eating homemade pizza and garlic bread, pasta and drinking elegant wines. Of course, this was all accompanied by a very attractive long dark haired man of Olympian proportions. In fact, I think I embodied Lucy in Stealing Beauty - one of my favorite movies of all time. And even though SHE didn't have sex with Jeremy Irons, I may or may not have.

Why all this yummy Italian fervor?

Well, last weekend when I went to visit the baby, my sister in law passed along some culinary delights that she and my brother made from the garden. Including some garlic scape vinegar that they made. And guess what I poured down the drain? Garlic Vinegar. Garlic. Which smells wonderful in the kitchen. Not so wonderful in your shower - which is usually a place you're trying desperately to get the garlic smell OFF OF YOU.

Since you're going to be dreaming about Italians for awhile, can I be next?

Throw some lettuce and tomatoes down the drain and you can have salad while you get clean.

What you need to do here is sit in a tub of hot water in which you have sprinkled oregano, basil and some parmesan cheese. This is certain to get rid of the garlic smell.

Or attract a bunch of hungry men to follow you around when you go out of the house.

I might have let out a horrified gasp when reading this. Well, at least you can be sure you're keeping the vampires away...

Oh no! That is awful, but also really funny. But awful.

That's classic!

Better rinse the tub before you shower. I've heard that garlic oil can be absorbed through the skin and excreted through the lungs. Stick a clove of garlic in your sock and you'll have garlic breath within the hour, so the story goes. I've never tested it.

Does this mean that you now smell like garlic bread? DELICIOUS!

Crap outside. Problem solved.. only kidding, again! Venting and air flow have alot to do with this- buy a cheap de-humidifier on E-bay and put it in the John. A battery powered air freshener that plugs into outlet is good too..

I hope you did have sex with him. And I'm with MilesPerHour use the garlic to your advantage. ;)

Ouchies....

Well, at least you were able to add garlic to your evening meals without actually adding garlic to your evening meal.

Oh my gosh! That is a funny, yet stinky, moment. I would have died at the realization of doing that. Crack me up!
