Not so long ago, Megan asked about plants that do well in bathrooms. Well, may I introduce you to the "Orchid Rescue and Relief Society," AKA: my bathroom. I started keeping these guys on the sink or in hanging pots, and they went BONKERS.
My house has five toilets. I know, it's an embarrassment of porcelain riches. When we first moved in some of them ran occasionally, and I knew it was wasting water, but fixing these odd-duck toilets just seemed so daunting and confusing.

We've just moved into a new rental place and it has a separate bath and shower. I'm excited about having a tub, but I can't see us using the tub more than once every couple of weeks. I was wondering if anyone has found a… dust cover? Or something that you could put over a tub? Or some way of covering the tub between uses so that the space could get used as a bench or something?

We have two bathrooms — both of which are equidistant from main gathering areas (kitchen and living room).
