Sinks and tubs have overflow holes. Why not toilets?
The makers of Penguin Toilets wondered the same thing, so they added overflow protection to their products.
Penguin Toilets have openings under the rim of the bowl leading to a separate drain line that bypasses the trap. In the event of a clog, the contents can drain out instead of spilling onto the bathroom floor.
The toilets are available in three models. They’re sold at Lowe’s stores and on Lowes.com for prices ranging from $169 to $304.50, and they’re also available through wholesale distributors.
Q: I baked vegetables on a tray with olive oil, and the oil burned onto the tray. How can I get it off?
A: The product I always recommend for situations like this is Dawn Power Dissolver. It’s not a dish detergent, but a pretreatment. Spray it onto the dry tray and let it sit a while before rinsing. You may have to repeat if the oil is really stubborn.
The product can be hard to find, so call around to stores in your area. I’ve seen it at a supermarket, and in the past I’ve been told that some Ace Hardware stores carry it.
