I share a bathroom with my brother, who for some ABSURD reason, seems to forget to put up the seat, flush, or even attempt to aim for the toilet bowl, and i am sick and tired of it. Any good craft ideas to use? I was thinking some kind of reward chart for remebering, or some kind of cross stitch (like the subversive cross stithc website thuingie) that says "Put up the seat" or something (if i learn how to crosstich!)
hope someone thinks of something before i kill him......!

My aunt has a crossstich that says "My aim is to keep this bathroom clean, your aim will help"

When my brothers were little my stepmom put cheerios in the toilet to give them "targets" to aim for  Cheesy

In my experience with 4 brothers, all male roommates and a live in boyfriend, this is a battle you will not win. I eventually went the passive-agressive route and would kick the toilet seat down so it BANGED and everyone knew I was mad cause the seat was up again.

Sing to the tune of "Frere Jacques":

If you sprinkle,
When you tinkle,
Please be neat,
Wipe the seat.

Don't go being slopppy,
Then I have to moppy.
Please be neat,
Wipe the seat.

You can probably work it out in some craft.

I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.

But my imagination's great!

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I heard of someone that took a picture of an unflushed toilet, framed it and mounted it in the bathroom.  A little rude, but it didn't need to be there long for the point to get across.

Considering the fact this brother of yours is of the male race, I highly doubt a cross stitch is going to stop him from being messy! This is kind-of relevent; I heard somewhere that they have special toilet seats that glow in the dark to help aim for the late night nature call... Maybe you can DIY even just around the inner rim with some glow in the dark paint?

your probably right. At this point the only thing i could possibly think of that would allow him to realize how gross it is to sit on a sticky toilet would be to allow our dog to pee on his desk.... which might be kind of hard to convince him to do.

I know, aren't males icky?
As far as lifting the toilet seat so he doesn't pee on it, I put a simple sign on the back of the toilet. It sorta helped...then I had some friends over, they saw it & my bf was mortified. He doesn't need a sign to remember now. As far as the peeing everwhere but in the toilet, I make my guy clean the toilet. ALL around, inside, outside, upside downside. It's his mess, not mine. I clean everything else in the bathroom, but that's his. Maybe you could make him a special cleaning kit complete with gloves & such he might need for cleaning it up. Put it in a specially decorated box & all that.

Good luck.
