'Wee on it. Urine really speeds the decomposition process'.


Hmm, this is relatively straight forward if you're mail but , for females, I guess it would be more pleasant to wee into a container and then tip it over the turd (unless you're Christine Hamilton, that is! I saw a TV documentary where she was in the jungle and trained herself to wee from a standing position. She said that, with practice, she could get quite a good aim smiley - laugh

If women hadn't started wearing trousers and forgotten how to squat properly there'd be no problem!

I won't say any more than that. smiley - blush

Interesting to note (BBC News; national press) this week that the gardeners at Wimpole Hall advocate weeing on one's compost heap. Urine is an excellent compost activator due to high nitrogen content (urea).

Apparently, though, Mina, female urineis less effective due to being more acidic smiley - doh

I'm not really here

It didn't seem to mention acidic pee on that article, or did I miss something?

Not sure why women couldn't sit on a bale and let it soak in, just pop one of these on it http://www.morethanmobility.com/images/thumbnail/PR50646_7-10646_7-T.jpg

Msybe not, but the beeb interviewed the Head Gardener from Wimpole Hall on Breakfast News, and he mentioned the greater acidity.
