I'm appealing to you experts on this. I have CD and My hubby has IBD/suspect CD. We thankfully have 3 bathrooms. Anyway, here's the question -- is it rude, when it's not an emergency, to stink up the master bath right by the bed at bed time when there are two other bathrooms? This bathroom might be moderately more comfortable, but it also airs into the room and is needed by the other to prepare for bed.

Even though we both have the same gut issues we differ on this. Obviously we agree that anything goes in an emergency and we've both patiently and silently endured the others' gas clouds when necessary. I defer to you guys.

Personally, I always try to use the bathroom furthest away from the main gathering area whether it be the living room or the bedroom at night. If there are options and the other person doesn't want to smell gross stuff while they sleep (understandably) then it makes sense to use a different bathroom. Just my opinion though :)

I would always try to use another bathroom. After all I would like to preserve some modesty, and also
not inflict something obnoxious on anyone else, even if it were my husband, who wouldn't care less if it
was the other way around. I think that is a mans thing!!

Hmm, maybe that's it. There's a gender divide on this. Let's see.

Personally I wouldn't be embarassed at creating any such smells (ah the joys of growing up in a house with a CD dad, where making gross smells was a contest). That said, I know my bf would prefer not to be subjected to such smells if it can be avoided - so I'd have to agree with using a farther bathroom for non-emergencies.

Not sure how well known it is, where it's available, etc. but I've had great success with Just A Drop. A drop or two in the bowl BEFORE you go quite literally eliminates most if not all of the smell, even for the worst ones. Quite useful, at least for those non-emergency times when you could take a few seconds to prepare the bowl for use. Then it doesn't really matter where you let the stink bombs fly!

Thanks all!! You're making me feel better. I'll admit I was far less sympathetic yesterday when he was sick from eating something we both knew would make him sick then he headed upstairs to pollute the place.

The human olfactory can only smell even the most putrid odor for a very short time. Trust me I know . Thats why you cant locate bad smelling things in the house without going outside and back in again so you can refresh your sense of smell. Its also why we dont stink ourselves out of the bathroom. I vote in favor of going down the hall away from the bedroom , but I really dont think its a big thing because men tend to see things differently. I would never expect to see a woman pick up a smelly gym bag , take a wiff and go Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew weeeeee that stinks,,,,Hey Joe, come here,,,you have to smell this....

Yep, you're right Sniper, I don't think any women would think a gym bag smell is something that needs exploring
or sharing. I think men are different, and I thank God for that!!

I live in a house with 5 males (hubby and 4 teenage boys) and 2 large dogs. I know I'm bad, but they enjoy stinking each other out.

The master bathroom is mine. If it's evening, I will run the fan but it sounds like a 747 taking off. I have tried several different air fresheners but none that really got rid of the smell. An old army trick is to light a match, I guess that smell covers up the other.

Where do I find Just a Drop? I've never heard of it...
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

I think another bathroom would be the best. I have that complaint with my husband and kids and they usually do it when I am nauseous!

I've never had experience with this. We have only one bathroom, for three people whom all have digestive problems.

I'd say go to the next closest. I wouldn't care what someone else does, though. It's not terribly difficult for me to ignore smells like I ignore pain. Put on a straight face and think about lasers.

Oh come now guys, you know us men are gross. Some of us really stink and I dont mean in the bathroom. When young , we did things like tinkling on a friends car manifold. When it got hot it cleared the car of passengers. The old dead fish under the hub cap was a smelly way to be gross too, Yes I know few cars today even have hub caps. We put dog poop in a paper bag , put it on the door step of some unsuspecting recipient , lit it afire , rang the door bell and ran. Of course the person answering the door had to stomp the fire out, yep a real stinky surprise . We tried to have the most putrid smelling gym bag, T shirt or towel in the shower room at football practice. One guy , before a game would spit on the ceiling and catch it in his mouth when it dripped back down. We are just that gross. No woman would think of doing such things so I am not at all surprised when a husband stinks up the bathroom and walks away . I know deep down inside he is having a good chuckle . The old saying that men are from mars and women from venus is close to true , but the real difference is women apply perfume, men make their own. Real toilet water.....
