This is random, but it is SO important. You know how your mom and your teachers always told you to cover your sneeze with your arm so that the bacteria does not enter the air. This is because the bacteria may find its way into someone’s air passage and create a virus..
Did you know that not closing the toilet seat does the same thing… Here’s why you should put the toilet seat down when you flush,
When you flush a toilet, the swirling water that removes your waste from the bowl also mixes with small particles of that waste, shooting liquid feces into the air.
Many new toilets have decreased the amount of water that is used, which results in less particles entering the air.
The most important thing that I learned in this article by Sean Kane, is that even after you flush, particles and bacteria may still live in the toilet. Therefore it is important to keep the lid shut all the time, unless in use.
What about in public places? Where there is usually no lid? Exit at the time of flushing, flushing the toilet should be the last step before existing the restroom.
This may seem gross to some people, but one simple step in your every day practice can ultimately help avoid bacteria entering your body, or even getting on your items in your bathroom.
Sorry for this gross information, but its part of my every day routine now, before you flush, close the lid. Super easy!
Remember you can change the world!
