Urinal cake

Ok. This is meant a bit tongue-in-cheek. In the urinals here, they put a urinal cake (a round little thing which is a kind of deodorant) in the bottom. My boys are 2 and 5, so going to the bathroom fascinates them. When you pee, you pee directly onto the urinal cake and they want to know what it is they're peeing on. I think I told them more-or-less, 'Esse negocio contem um desodorante para o banheiro nao cheirar muito ruim.' (Is that ok, by the way?) So, a urinal cake...my guess is..

Bolo de mictorio :)

    BTW, mictório is a word created to fit certain needs.

    According to Houaiss:
    ... segundo Nascentes e AGC, trata-se de neologismo criado (sobre mictum, rad. do supn. do v.lat. mingère 'mijar' + suf. -ório, pelo modelo de lavatório), quando a princesa imperial regente, D. Isabel, teve de sancionar uma postura da Câmara Municipal acerca de mijadouros públicos.

    First register in Portuguese: 1899.
