Is anyone else grossed out by cleaning bathrooms, including your own?!

I know it’s probably laughable, but one place I absolutely dread cleaning are bathrooms, including my own sometime lol.

Nah, I'm a nurse..nothing really grosses me out these days

That sounds like a challenge.

You have my admiration

@PolyWolf Things shock and upset me like mindless violence, racism, hatred of any sort. Grossed out I could share stories but its not appropriate amongst a non-healthcare population

@Amisja I know, was just teasing. I'm sure you could outlast me. I've read the medical gross stuff reddit. Hwarf.


I cleaned public park bathrooms in high school. It’s my superpower.


Nah, I’m a neat freak, it’s always clean. You could eat in mine.

I’m so impressed by tidy people. How do you do it???? Isn’t life too short or something?


No. I'm grossed out by unclean bathrooms. I clean mine often, so as to not allow them to get "gross".


Yah it's a nasty job sometimes. But one thing nastier than cleaning bathrooms is not cleaning bathrooms. Lol

YES!! I live alone so I’m pretty much the only one who uses it. I’m not a filthy pig. Yet I still gag every time I have to clean it!

Thank you, I thought it was just me!

Shows your nose still works where to cover up droppings and pee in the litter box of Americans


It doesn't bother me. I like the end result. Oooh shiny. ?

Well there is an alternative

Oh my!!! Yuck!

Not a laughing matter, I've actually seen something similar in a Womens' Toilet when I was cleaning them ages ago.

@Triphid You and me both ?

@EmeraldJewel So do you still not want to clean your bathroom? ?


I actually do enjoy cleaning bathrooms. I won't say it's particularly beautiful or inspiring or anything, but it reminds me of simpler times in my life, like when I was paid to clean bathrooms. smile002.gif (Used to be a general cleaner for cottages and things like that.)

I'd might be grossed out cleaning someone else's, but my own? No, not my own. It has to be done. So I just get it doen and don't think about any grossness.

Cleaging tip. If you clean while naked you dont' get your clothes all dirty, and clean the shower last and cleanign yourself up is really easy right after you are done.

I’ve gotten used to using gloves to clean everything.. plenty of those on hand.
Being an RN, I’ve seen much worse than my boys bathrooms.


It's less stressful when I clean it after myself.


Clorox toilet bowl cleaner clinging bleach gel.....once a week let it work overnight, problem solved.... you're welcome

Well...not a massive cleaning fan at the best of times. But no great objections to it more than anywhere else. But then I think having kids has made me immune to that kind of disgust.

Piss and shit...we can get used to anything

Yeah, you’re right, it all washes off.


Kind of off topic, y'know I've always noticed that ladies public restroom were messier than the men's after a days use, maybe just my perception

I once did a 'stand in' cleaning job for a friend who was extremely unwell for a few months.
That job was cleaning the Public Toilets at a couple of Shopping Centers around town, I found that despite the ideologies that women need and desire cleanliness the Public Toilets used by women are by far and without a shadow of a doubt are the Grossest, most Disgusting, Filthy places I have ever had the utter misfortune to have entered.
Every morning and late evening I would enter them to clean them only to find excrement scattered liberally around them, on the toilet seats, walls, etc, bins for sanitary items empty and the floors around them almost covered with the items that SHOULD have been in the bins, urine literally sprayed up walls of the cubicles, on the floors, doors and seats, not to even mention the foul, disgusting graffiti scrawled everywhere the stench alone would be enough to make a make a vulture throw up its stomach contents.
Yet the male toilets were, except on the vary RARE occasions, clean, neat and tidy with just the few spots of missed 'aim' around the urinals.
I might add here, that AFTER the first 2 days I took to wearing a surgical mask with a few drops of Oil of Wintergreen on it to assist in 'disguising' the foul stench everytime I had to clean the Womens' Toilets.

Ugh! That sounded like a nightmare to me!


I was in the Army. Cleaning the latrine was routine. Not a problem here.

Sticks48 Level 9 Nov 29, 2018

Me too
I just keep it clean and sit down on the toilet bowl like woman.


Yes, I completely agree. Im single and live alone so usually by the time that I get around to cleaning my bathroom, its kind of gross! Lol

AArealist Level 4 Nov 29, 2018

Nope. My favorite place alive. giant bath tub room for 2 of us squeaky clean kissable lovers. ...trim my beard brush my teeth clip my nose hairs Lysol swished in my commode. ..wish I had a bidet. ...shower hose stimulates. cats use their litter box there and I flush their turds and piss clumps away after every use....Kiti&Laila prance along the edge of my bubble bath. ...I have plush rugs on my stone floor stack my towels in the corner closet rinse my briefs & socks to drip dry over my tub. ...porceline palace is an honor to keep spotless for lovers and family come to call


As I was reading the comments I was reminded of the time I went to my husband’s (then we were newly dating) friend’s apartment to hang out. It was the first time I had met this guy. Well to make a not so long story even shorter I had asked to use the restroom and when I went through the doorway he had showed me I was horrified by what I saw. This bathroom was so incredibly disgusting that I still get the heebie jeebies when I think about it. I turned around as quick as I could and got out of there. I ended up telling my husband that I couldn’t use that bathroom and went outside and squatted instead. That was first and only time I have chosen to pee outside instead of using someone’s lavatory.


Omg I am so overly grossed out by restrooms that it borders on phobia territory. I hate cleaning them but I always make sure I am the one that does mine because I don’t trust that anyone else will get it clean. I always have to wear gloves when doing it.


I was raised on a dairy farm so cleaning a dirty bathroom is trifling. And the military taught me how to do it right...with a toothbrush! Lol.

No, but I am a bit lazy. It really doesn’t smell that bad once you get used to it ?. Kidding, I do a once a week decontamination process. I also did a lot of latrine duty in boot camp. Takes A LOT to gross me out.
