Suz, don't worry about the bleach/potty thing. I live in a motorhome and at first I went to my daughter's home for this. After a while I figured out a way to do it "at home", so if I can do it, so can YOU! (And don't ask for any more operational details of my approach) This will be a piece of cake and soon you'll be telling us how easy it was.

Susan , they dont need a special room , a lil privacy is all.they could do it on the moon the could do it it in the hall, just behind the wall, they could do it here they can do it there, they dont care they can do it any where, and you dont need to worry you will see, just like me, its not as bad as we thought after all. good luck youl be fine Im having my 6th on tuesday , when your starting ..I was worried too,
No, Susan...if you do the bleach routine (which also protects the public waterways) for six hours you will be just fine. The only time you would be a problem is if someone in your home was immunocompromised...like receiving chemotherapy. There is no need to move to a motel or anything like that.
Good luck and will be thinking good thoughts!!
