Bathroom Talk Is Now, O.K. #CloroxLounge

The grimace. You know the one that you make when your children says something about the bathroom or anything in the “toilet talk” range of conversation topics. You cringe. You take a sharp intake of breath. You pray that your child doesn’t go off on a rant about toilets, pooping, and any other toilet talk. You look nervously at the person you are talking to…hopeful that the person you are talking to ignores or doesn’t hear what your child just said.

Now, Clorox feels your pain. Clorox wants to give you a place to feel free to talk about bathrooms to your heart’s content. A new website was recently launched by the Clorox Family of Toilet Products: The Clorox Lounge.

The Clorox Lounge is hosted by Sherri Shepherd — a comedian, actress, and most importantly, mom. The Clorox Lounge is a community hub for all things bathroom related. Think of The Clorox Lounge as a “laugh room” or a mom’s go-to place for comedy.

Like moms everywhere I have found the bathroom to be a welcome respite from kids, household chores, and even my husband! I remember, like it was yesterday, the day I had to take a phone call for work. I set my kids up with an activity. Slipped into the bathroom. Locked the door. Took the call. I hadn’t been on the call for more than a minute or two when my oldest “found” me. She proceeded to ask me the same questions over and over again: “Mommy, where are you?” “Mommy, can you come out?” “Mommy, can I come in?” “Mommy, are you in there?” I bravely soldiered on with the call. Shhhing her through the door. Holding the phone closely to  my ear. If the person on the other end heard the ruckus going  on outside my bathroom door, she didn’t say anything until… Until the moment when my youngest grabbed the F-P corn popper and started ramming it in to the bathroom. Not a peaceful scene!

So, you can picture the scene: Me on the phone trying desperately to continue with my business call. My 3-year-old desperately calling to me and banging on the door. And my 1-year-old ramming the corn popper in to the bathroom door. That day and many other days, my bathroom was a kind of sanctuary. What have you done to keep the wolf…uh the kid…from bothering you during a business call. Clorox wants to know your wackiest, craziest, “sounded completely sane in the heat of the moment, but now sounds absurd” parenting tip.
