Clever Jenny VI

Situation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.

Jenny dropped in to see her friends, Tom and Dana, one afternoon after work. Dana answered the door when she rang.

Jenny said, "Hi! What's going on? Are you guys busy?"

Dana groaned. "Oh, you won't believe it! Tom is late getting home from work, and his mother just called and she'll be over to visit at six!"

"Yikes! That's only an hour away!" Jenny responded. "Can I help?"

"Sure! Here, have a Coke with me!" Dana handed her a cold can from the fridge.

"OK, what can I do? Kitchen looks OK; you're doing the living room; how about the bathroom?"

"Uh... yes, please! Oh no! I ran out of toilet cleaner and don't have the time to get some! Oh boy! And it needs it!"

Jenny said, "Let me see what I can do," and headed for the bathroom.

Less than an hour later, the apartment was spick and span. Dana had put out some fruit, cheese and crackers; Tom was home and had opened a bottle of wine; and Jenny had arranged some silk flowers in a vase. Even the bathroom was sparkling, especially the toilet. What had Jenny done to get the toilet clean?
