How many times do I have to go in to the bathroom to flush the toilet after the kids use it? Yesterday, I think I flushed it 8 times. Everytime I do a load of laundry I wash my hands so I am in the bathroom and I notice the lid to the toilet is up so I look in the bowl and of course it has been used and never flushed. So I flush it and continue about my business. Unfortunately, there is not one offender, there are three. And I have no idea what the solution is.
