Close the Lid before you Flush?


Otod here, people!  Its simple. flick the lid closed….then flush. When flushing a toilet, little itty bitty particles get thrown into the air as far as 20 feet, and more with some violent flushing toilets.

How do we stop it? Butt plugs. or….

Close the Lid!
Or get fecal matter on your toothbrush. Dude….gross.

  • Each toilet flush creates an unseen mist that can travel up to 20 feet in all directions.
  • Toilet water can contain fecal matter, E. coli, streptococcus, staphylococcus, klebsiella oxytoca, enterobacter, flu and cold viruses etc.
  • Micro-droplets land on everything within the flush zone: toothbrushes, drinking cups, bath toys etc. The mist can stay in the air for 2 hours, and can be inhaled. Pathogens can live on surfaces for a week.

Way more info, and some tips and videos after the break? Obviously! Click below…

Ok, first off…. yes. streptococcus is a real word.

Second. Here is a clip from Dr Oz discussing this very fact where he reveals the truth about toilet flushing and the spread of harmful germs.

 

And here is a written answer from Dr. Oz:

Toilets contain a bacterial line just below the water level called a bio-film. The bacterial bio-film is very difficult to remove even with household cleaners. Once airborne these micro-droplets land on everything within the flush zone: drinking cups, toys, children’s toothbrushes, etc. Some of these pathogens live for a week on surfaces. Every toilet flush creates an unseen mist detected at head height and can travel up to 15 feet away from the toilet bowl—known as the “Aerosol Effect.” Always put the toilet seat down before you flush the toilet because it will prevent some of the fecal particles from floating up and landing on every other bathroom surface, and keep your toothbrush covered.

To boot, all bathroom surfaces should be cleaned regularly. These include the door handle, faucets, toilet, sink, floor and shower/bathtub. Clean inside the toilet at least twice a week with a disinfectant ordisinfectant toilet-bowl cleaner. Clean the toilet and sink with separate cloths to avoid transferring germs.

 

The Late and Great George Carlin does a funny bit about our fear of germs….. Its Funny….

But you should still close that lid!

“Fear of germs?”  NSFW

 

Bottom Line…..

Its really simple to do. “Poop…Lid….Flush”.     “Pee…..Lid….Flush”.

So… throw away your toothbrush, wash those bathroom towels and remember… your dog will also stop drinking from the toilet.

    20 feet? lol particles only go up to 5 feet when you sneeze. I really doubt something sucking down water is going to shoot particles 20 freaking feet away. There have been studies that said ten inches, but nothing more.
