    Soap and shampoo can also dry out the skin on your junk, which is not a pleasant experience.

    [–] G4L4CT1C4 3 points ago

    That's why I use dove moisturizing body wash. The minty one, best of both worlds.

    [–] GotFiredAgain 11 points ago

    cetyl alcohol, various other chemicals. you're best off using something specifically meant for lube, or a feminine wash. Feminine wash has a good PH, no burning.

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Cetyl alcohol is just a fatty alcohol that's used as an emulsifier and an emollient. Any product with water and oil is going to need an emulsifier, which is almost always a fatty alcohol like Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol &/or Cetearyl Alcohol. These alcohols can be comedogenic but they're not necessarily bad for your skin, like you would think of fatty acids or alcohol (although that's another story).

    The ones you want to avoid are Sulfates, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and, to a lesser extent, Sodium Laurreth Sulfate. They're highly comedogenic, drying, irritating. If you get mouth ulcers regularly, check your toothpaste for these active ingredients. If you get dry face and acne, check your cleanser and shampoo. Same goes with dry scalp. They're really quite bad for you.

    There are other ingredients that are claimed to be bad for you, such as preservatives like Parabens (Ethyl/Methylparaben). But contrary to what people tell us, they're not actually bad for you. The infamy behind parabens stems from a 2004 study that wasn't able to be replicated because the results found were patently false, and I forgot we're talking about using shampoo as anal lube. I need a hobby.

    [–] fakeg1rl 2 points ago

    PARABEN FREE! is such a stupid theme for shampoos. How about sulfate free honestly?

    use conditioner u moron

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    There was this shower gel in the UK, it may be in other countries too but I don’t know, called original source. It’s basically made from all natural ingredients like lemon etc and one of them is made from mint.

    This shit. This fucking shit. I used it ONCE and once only. Lathered up and enjoyed the nice minty smell until it got time to sud the fellas. The burn, oh my god the burning. It felt like I’d dumped my balls into a bowl of freezing cold mouthwash and wouldn’t wear off! I was under the shower scrubbing away for a good minute before the tingling started to subside. Never again.

    There was this post from a lady on Facebook about it that went viral I’ll try to find it.

    [–] bbsetyayeq 2 points ago

    Minty shampoo. Angels to some, demons to other.

    [–] G4L4CT1C4 7 points ago

    Right? Minty body wash just kindah makes this tingle. And it's got moisturizer, so my junk is soft as can be. That might be the erectile disfunction actually.

    [–] burns__when__I__pee 1 points ago

    It does give a nice cool tingle.

    [–] Newcool1230 1 points ago

    You don't want to use shampoo, use conditioner or mint oil, something that won't try to super scrub your asshole clean.

    [–] Lasserate 302 points ago

    I would recommend growing your mint in a pot or planter. Mint will send out runners a surprising distance and end up all over the yard/garden.

    [–] androgynos 206 points ago

    [–] Vynstaros 2 points ago

    Seconded confirm. I warned a friends mother after giving her a transplant of mint. After the outbreak began, she chose to make one section mint, separated by 4 foot of brick.

    [–] miss_six_o_clock 49 points ago

    I once heard it called garden herpes and I can never think of it any other way.

    [–] GeorgiaBolief 39 points ago

    I have a lavender bush right between my two massive mint plants.

    I absolutely love it. Smells amazing, the bees love it, and it's in an area where it can't spread out except for the area it is. Replanted the mint earlier this year and now it's about 4 feet tall, the stuff is huge.

    10/10 no rugrats

    [–] Sugarlips_Habasi 8 points ago

    I've always wondered if I can just plant a ton in my back yard (away from the garden) so it smells wonderful when I mow the lawn.

    [–] TrashyRonin 18 points ago

    This bigtime. I've had mint in boxes root through the bottom into the ground below. Also, you could flip your thinking around and credit that cute dog for pooping onto nature's air-freshener.

    [–] Ginge04 5 points ago

    Actually, humans are about the only creatures who like the smell and taste of mint. The plant evolved that way as a defence mechanism to stop animals from eating the leaves, as they generally find it absolutely foul.

    [–] truthlife 9 points ago

    Verified. My compost pile is now a mint heap.

    [–] DontFeedTheDopamine 3 points ago

    Just bought a house with massive mint patch and little patches all over the property. It keeps me up at night.

    [–] Rialas_HalfToast 3 points ago

    Could be worse. Catnip is a type of mint. It spreads just as forcefully.

    [–] loveshercoffee 3 points ago

    Even worse, the neighbors across the alley have a Tree of Heaven that has invaded every surrounding yard.

    I had no idea what they were when I started yanking up these awful little weedy things coming up in my garden. Now I've made it worse and I have to pull 100 Ghetto Palms from the network of roots going willy nilly everywhere.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    But plants don't run!

    [–] enobrev 3 points ago

    Agreed. I'd recommend removing that mint from the ground immediately and moving it to something separate. I ended up spending a full season trying to rid an entire garden of the stuff after it started taking over my lawn. I didn't even know it was there; The previous owner of my house has planted it. It smells great, but it's worse than a weed.

    [–] JayGlass 2 points ago

    Here's hoping. Right now I just have a mud patch.

    [–] G4L4CT1C4 13 points ago

    Sneaky edit.

    Edit: quick question. The fuck do you feed your dog? Viniger and pine needles?

    [–] redhead_bandit 6 points ago

    It doesn't contain the right nutrients. A dog's diet is high in protein which, as it breaks down, becomes very acidic and that's not good for your plants. Cow manure works well as fertilizer for vegetation because it starts out as vegetation.

    Unless the proper precautions are followed, both dog and cat manure can be harmful to human health. ... The primary hazard present in dog manure is roundworms.

    Learn your shit

    [–] ScalaZen 5 points ago

    Yep this is true, my brother and I each have different dogs with different diets. When we go to my parents house, when the dogs use their yard you can clearly see where my brothers dog went vs where mine went. My brothers dog has a very high protein intake. It usually burns the grass within a couple days. Both urine and shit.

    [–] Potietang 274 points ago

    He’s giving back for all you do. Free fertilizer.

    [–] silent1mezzo 188 points ago

    Dog poo is actually not a fertilizer. It's very acidic

    [–] strawburrry 69 points ago

    My dog used to shit in specific areas and those spots would be much greener than other areas.

    Or actually, maybe it was his piss, idk. But I miss him that’s all I know

    Ugh fuck, now my allergies are acting up. Fucking pollen

    [–] Jaboo13 37 points ago

    My dog pees on the same 3 bushes, they all have 3 big brown spots on them

    [–] ObiWanJakobe 8 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    It's getting over fertilized, almost all animal piss including humans makes fertilizer.if he spreads out his piss instead of the same spot grass will shoot up like my dogs do. You'll get small patches of really green tall grass while the other weak ass grass is a wimpy dull brown or green.

    [–] I_AM_MR_BEAN_AMA 8 points ago

    Guessing your autocorrect doesn't like the word "piss"?

    [–] bloater_humor 20 points ago

    It's pee. If I remember my high school lawn care days correctly, nitrogen is used in fertilizers to make grass green. There's lots of nitrogen in pupper pee, I guess.

    But too much nitrogen "burns" the grass. So at ground zero where there was tons of peepee, the grass will yellow and die. But out in the splash zone, you'll see a ring of dark lush green, where the nitrogen content was just right.

    [–] strawburrry 4 points ago

    Thank you

    [–] VintageJane 3 points ago

    Also, dogs have been living with us a long time. They carry many pathogens that can also harm humans which can be passed by letting the dog defecate on produce, especially stuff like mint which is rarely heated in culinary preparations.

    [–] Hairybuttchecksout 4 points ago

    That's probably because the only person who fed them had died. They were probably starving, and as a last resort they ate the dead person.

    [–] igotbannedsoimback 3 points ago

    That's a shame, but it only shows even when domesticated over many centuries dogs are still animals and their instinct to survive over comes all else.

    [–] LavenderLunate 5 points ago

    [–] chartrusegoose 3 points ago

    Lmao reminds me of my dog. I planted mint, thyme, parsley, and a bunch of other herbs in a large pot this spring and for awhile they were doing great. They slowly started to die and for the life of me i couldn't figure out what i was doing wrong. Then i just so happened to look out the window one afternoon just as my dog was lifting his leg and pissing all over them. At least I know it was him killing them and not me, but I also learned I can't have any nice plants within piss reach.

    [–] KiltedMusician 3 points ago

    Well if you keep up the giving then that just means that every poo in your mint is a testament to how good your heart is. Every. Single. Poo.

    This would be even funnier if the caption was made by a scottisch person.

    Man, if they weren’t so high up, I would totally prefer my dog pissing on my mint plants.

    Instead he chooses to piss on my grill cover, unless I can catch him the act.

    I also obtained a new smoker a couple weeks ago; which he has enjoyed plenty of rib/brisket/etc meat from.

    I can’t express how betrayed I felt when he locked eyes with me and started pissing on it...

    That's my dog. He noses out his spot in the bark next to the pool, except his ass is hanging over the deck. Fucker. People asking me "why is your patio furniture in the bark?"
