I heard about this book and I just had to see what it's all about. "Chilling Tales From The Portcelain Seat" is a bathroom reader written by Roto-Rooter plumbers with commentary by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson from the SciFi channel's "Ghost Hunters". This book not only has funny stories, but it also has practical tips for maintaining your plumbing! I learned new facts that I could teach my husband :)
It was amazing to read about the kinds of things that people have lost down a drain - a glass eye, false teeth, money, etc. Throughout the book, not only are these funny stories presented, but there are really practical tips for people! It is stated in the book that Thanksgiving is the single busiest day of the year for plumbers. I never that, but it makes sense!
"Most Americans take part in Thanksgiving celebrations with eleven or more people. Big holiday meals require a busy kitchen, meaning lots of grease and food go down the kitchen drain into the garbage disposal. Holiday guests require extra shwoers, eash cycles, and toilet flushes".
The book also discusses "Self-Help, Maintenance, Going Green, & Saving Green". I found this section particularly helpful! I can't stand when my sink starts to get an odor - and I don't even have a garbage disposal! Here's a helpful tip: "To eliminate these dors, place ice cubes and lemon peels in the disposal and run for about 30 seconds,, then rinse with cold water".
This book is full of stories that will make you and your houseguests giggle! Please check it out! If not for the amusing stories, check it out for the practical tips. It will be worth it!
