I always flush. My XH always flushed. We slept well. It grosses me out much more to find pee in the toilet.

So kind of like paying bills on a certain day of the month you flush? This is only if it is pee surely right? I can't imagine we are a house of seven and only flushing once a month period would just be unsightly not to mention stinky! No way it would be one stinky house!

I have "let it mellow" habits from childhood (old farmhouse; shallow, hand-dug well)...and it drives DH nuts. So, I try to get into the flushing habit at all times.

I WISH we had dual flush toilets. We couldn't find them when we had the house built.

Always, always always! If I went in and found pee in the toilet, I would flush first, go and then flush again. Sorry family, but I just can't leave waste in the toilet.

I always wake up when my husband flushes, but I go right back to sleep - and I don't have to lie awake obsessing over pee in the toilet .

Always. i know all the good reasons to leave it - conserving water, not disturbing others. It just icks me out too much to leave it though. I hate it if others leave it too. There are lots of other things that I can tolerate, but not that.

Nope. My son wakes if a pin drops, and often doesn't go back to sleep if he wakes, so no flushing happens at all at night. In fact, we go downstairs to pee because the sound of peeing is enough to wake him. Sleep is precious in our house.

Not unless I've gone #2, but not because of the noise. We're on delivered (limited, and expensive) water, so we're an if-it's-yellow-let-it-mellow kind of house... to a degree. Every toilet gets flushed at least once a day, even if it hasn't been pooped in.

I flush. I hate how stinky the toilet gets if the pee sits. FLushing doesn't seem to wake anyone.

i have an outhouse, but when visiting home for the holidays, I don't flush at night. My brother's room is adjacent to the bathroom. So rude!!

I do because dh goes ape if he finds the toilet unflushed. Because I run a fan for white noise you cant hear the flushing in the bedroom so that isnt a problem.

I use the hall bath, rather than the master, at night, so I often do flush. But if ds or guests are in ds's room, then I use the master and don't flush. (The master is my bath, and I don't care, but dh gets sleeved out if I don't flush in his bathroom.

We're big on water conservation, so we are if its yellow let it mellow folks, even at 3am
post #36 of 69
Always flush. If I don't the toilet needs cleaning more frequently.
post #37 of 69
We don't usually flush at night. We don't even always flush pee during the day--we have three bathrooms, so one is set aside as the "guest" bathroom and it stays tidy. But we live in SoCal and water is always scarce, so I hate to flush every single time.
post #38 of 69
Never. And never have, even as a kid.
post #39 of 69
We are also a "If it's yellow, let it mellow" household. I never flush only pee, no matter what time of day. The only time I break the rule is if company comes over, and even then, I don't flush if close friends come over and know that I don't like to waste water.
