Every time we walk into a public restroom, my three-year-old asks me if it’s auto-flush. Every. Single. Time.
Whether my answer is yes or no, my assurance is always the same: Your hiney is safe with me. I will not flush your hiney.
And while I appreciate the added level of sanitation that an auto-flush toilet might provide, there is one definite drawback for mamas and preschoolers alike: the ill-timed auto-flush.
I tried all sorts of stealth antics and contortions before stumbling upon this very simple solution:
Just drape a bit of toiler paper right over the motion sensor, and–BAM–your problem is solved.
No more fear of being washed out to sea, WHEEEEEEEE!
Do you have any life hacks that are so brilliantly simple? You know, like the solution to the juice box dilemma? Do tell!!
I love this idea. This was one worry my generation didn’t have.
I used to carry post-its in my purse to cover the sensor – this trick is even better!
