    That's is a good queston. I used to just dump it down the toilet, but maybe there's a better way.  Now, I used the swiffer wetjet so there's no need for dumping any water.

      Swiffer products can be a lifesaver! With the amount of mess these dogs cause us, I tend to stick to the old school approach.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Either dumping it down the toilet or pouring it into a drain outside works for me.

      I wonder if there are negative environmental effects of either approach. I tend to dump it outside or down the sink, but I'm not sure if that's the right thing to do.

      Thanks for sharing!

      I suppose it depends on where you dump it outside. I can't see it doing much damage going down the drain.

    I always thought dumping down the toilet was the way to go.

      I hadn't heard that! I used the sink last time, but who knows if that's the right thing to do. Thanks! smile

    My grandma always used to dump it in our bath tub, then clean the bath tub itself haha Creating more work - probably. But anytime she was using a mop and bucket meant she WAS cleaning the whole house. Down the toilet, in my house. smile

    I usually dump it in the toilet, Its usually dirty with lots of dust etc, I prefer not to do it in the sink, or bathroom because it will damage the drainage and the cleanliness of the sink and the bath tub.
