You wouldn’t drink toilet water, would you

I realize that some people may think that is an inappropriate question to ask, and maybe they would be right. But when it comes to your health, I’d rather risk offending a few people to make sure you are protected.

The truth is that while you may not drink toilet water, you may be surprised to find out that you are probably breathing it.

Here’s what I mean…

When you flush a toilet there is an “aerosol effect” that causes tiny droplets of water to be sprayed into the air. You don’t see them, but they are there.

“Toilet aerosol” was first brought to light in 1975, by a microbiologist named Charles Gerba. Of course, it has been a topic of conversation ever since.

So what does this mean for your health?

Well, it could mean a couple of things.

1) Your bathroom counters, walls, and even ceiling, may not be nearly as clean as you think.

2) Each time you flush your toilet you may be infecting your toothbrush with water from your toilet if your toothbrush is out in the open in the same (or adjoining) room as your toilet.

So how can you protect yourself?

It is very simple. Put the toilet lid down when you flush the toilet and leave it down for a minute or two after the toilet finishes cycling.

That’s easy enough, right?

The hard part is remembering to do this each time you flush your toilet.

That’s why we created this eye-catching image for you to print and put up in your bathroom, until putting the lid down becomes a habit for you.
