    Do you have a pressure washer? That'll get the job done in much less than 5 minutes!

    HAH! I think they call them "bidets", and I would suggest getting one you can attach to your toilet, regardless of the magnesium. They are quite nice!

    My wife and I take this also. 1-1/2 teaspoons in the morning and again in the evening. I believe that works out to about 600mg/day of mag. We worked up to it slowly to ensure against the laxative effect.

    I was taking Natural Calm too and had to stop, half a teaspoon at night, it did wonders for my sleep, but after a couple days every morning I was having multiple trips to the bathroom.

    You'll adapt to it. In other words, the laxative effect diminishes over time. Now if I want the laxative effect, I need to take extra.

    ^Yes, to both. I've seen it at Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods, so I would imagine other health food/supplement stores might have it. It's not liquid, however. It's a powder you mix into water.

    Thx! I am currently taking 3 Mag Citrate 250mg capsules during the day, and 600mg Mag Glycinate chelated at night, and it has restored my bowel habits back to normal, along with higher saturated fat diet.....Nature Made brand, common drug store stuff, may not be best quality, but it seems to be working for me (Mag Glycinate is Doctors Best brand)
