    I make MrW go in a carton in the morning before putting it on the compost heap, apparently early morning pee is best because it's more concentrated, oh and I also heard that men's peeis better as ladies pee is too acidic

    sure it works as my compost has broken down really quickly and i've been left with some lovely friable compost.
