• If It’s Yellow Let It Mellow?

    The saying “If it's yellow, let it mellow, if it's brown flush it down” has been going around for quite some time, but does is it really necessary?

    Does it really save you that much money to not flush your toilet after every use?

    I'd like to see what everyone thinks about this practice of letting the urine sit in the tank in hopes of making a difference on the environment.

    My husband grew up in an area that often had summer droughts and water rationing. Because of that, he was trained as a child to stick to the “if it’s yellow let it mellow if it’s brown flush it down” mantra. We’re married and live in an area that doesn’t have any water issues at all. In fact, we live near an immense reservoir.

    My husband still sticks to that same mantra, but now he claims it’s to save money. I can’t find any evidence one way or another when it comes to this concern. I can’t believe it would save much money at all.
