The demise of the loo brush

Post by phil1855 on Fri Sep 21, 2018 1:53 pm

Hi All .
              Just back from a few days away at the CAMC site in York Rowntree. Apart from a near tornado which kept us confined to barracks for half a day, the most impactive issue was........the state some people, I assume they are people, leave the toilets.

Now I have no desire to cause offence by raising the delicate issue, but, FLUSH>>>>BRUSH>>>>FLUSH would be a mantra I think should be on the rear of every toilet door.

Goodness only knows what some peoples toilets look like, I prefer to eradicate that image from my mind.    censored!

I used to use a loo brush but I wasn't very happy with it - I went back to using paper smile!

Here, here, my most regular moan about CMC sites. The Ladies are worse than the gents, or at least that is my conclusion following extensive discussions with OH. I can only assume all CMC members have a cleaner at home.

With the cost of some of the CMC sites I can only wonder how they afford a cleaner.   confused3

Just flush might be good instructions too. I’ve been in a couple of toilets on this trip which haven’t even been flushed. Can’t even blame the kids, schools have gone back now.

I once went to a site in Chapel St. Leonard's, the toilets were always filthy and smeared with excrement an the walls, one morning I found a relatively clean one, my surprise at that ended when I went to bolt the door, excrement on the bolt!. Are these people human or animals?. Surely they aren't like that at home.

I wouldn`t ever consider people are like animals, that is an insult to the animals, animals are clean ,some  humans are not a lot of the time, a disgrace to the human race. standards are very low in some quarters, which are hard to understand. 


Didn`t you report it to the site office,? they can narrow it down to who is staying on their site.I certainly would have done.

I pity the cleaners.

It wasn't just once, it seemed to be normal there. We don't go there, we used to site our caravan for my auntie for 2 weeks every year. Every time seems the same.

We had a sign on the toilet door at our offices, you can guess the nature of the company...

"ENSURE ALL DOORS ARE LATCHED AND SECURED FOR TAKE OFF LANDING AND DURING TURBULENCE....

Unfortunately it's not just CMC sites.

I look after our local village hall. After an activity I went to check it before the next booking, I had to flush and clear 5 of the 7 toilets.

The Roman sponge is where the saying about getting the wrong end of the stick comes from. Not a good experience!

After extensive empirical research, I think that a contributory factor at several CAMC sites is the size, and vertical drop, of the cistern.

Often they are located immediately above the WC pan so that the head of water isn't much. Compounding that is the fact that the capacity of the cisterns is small and may have been artificially reduced in an attempt to save water (although that's a false economy because if the first flush is unsuccessful, a second flush is used - after a long and embarrassing wait for the cistern to refill.)

I've raised the topic with the Club, but have yet to see any changes. Not been to newly refurbed sites, which just may have improved things.

Of course none of that excuses the conduct of those who leave a loo in a state which is unacceptable. I have great sympathy for the wardens who have to clean the lavatories - my first student job as a garden labourer at a stately home involved a loo-cleaning rota, which I hated!

Interesting that it is CAMC sites that are speciifcally mentioned. We've just come back from a month staying on several C&CC sites throughout UK and not one single one had loos - ladies or gents- that were anything other than immaculate, at any time of the day. Since many are members of both clubs it can't be that they get a better class of client.

My pet hate is bits of (unused ) loo roll all over the floor. This is easily traced to those who put out unperforated rolls which are difficult to tear a suitable bit off without small bits falling to the floor- where few bother to pick them up. The C&CC use perforated rolls and don't seem to have this problem.

My pet hate is the current trend toward toilet ribbon!!

Can toilet rolls get any narrower before they become "unfit for purpose"!  :0_blush:

Are you sure that it's the paper that's getting narrower Mr Gromit?   hugegrins
