What have you ever used a bathtub for other than bathing yourself, another person, or a pet?

    Water storage during hurricanes or snow storms, after scrubbing.  .  I scrub the tubs and fill them when tornadoes are expected too.  I also clean the washing machine and fill it up.  There is not much worse than being without water.  

    When the girls were little I would put them in the dry tub to finger paint.  They could paint the inside of the tub and the walls.   

    I also use the tub to wash non-live items such as lampshades,  laundry baskets, etc.

    And my contractor didn't understand why I didn't want walk-in showers............

    I used it for that all the time when I had metal blinds.  Now I have the wood (not real wood....they are the white ones) and don't put them in water.  I just vacuum them.  The cords don't get dirty.  I don't let anyone smoke in here.

    I still have the metal ones in my bedroom, and plastic ones in the rest of the place.  I need to replace them and I will when I paint the apartment again.

    A long time ago I was going to enter a bathtub into the bathtub races between Horseshoe Bay (near Vancouver) on the mainland and Nanaimo (Vancouver Island)  but the officials put a stop to the exercise because the Strait of Georgia was getting too cluttered up with drunken sailors and sunken bathtubs.

    For the aluminum molds. (Bird bathes) They have to be dipped into the form release and drained before pouring.

    We use an old bath tub with the release in it to dip then drain the molds. This post was edited by my2cents at September 12, 2021 6:27 AM MDT
