8 Things You Should Never Do While Using The Toilet

aw If not properly maintained, the toilet can be a source of infection or disease for many people.


Some things you should never do while using the toilet for your personal safety regardless of circumstances. Many individuals around the world, primarily in Africa, engage in many of these practices when using the restroom, which is completely unacceptable because it puts their health and safety at jeopardy and increases their exposure to illness. Some of these substances are dangerous, and they can cause harm or even death if they are consumed in large quantities.


While using the restroom, don't do any of these eight things.


Not regularly cleaning your toilets.


As a person, you should learn to wash your toilet at least once a week, or even more frequently if you have the time and energy to do so.


However, some individuals fail to take action and continue to use their toilets in an unclean state for weeks or even months at a time. Infection and other harm to the human body can result from such substances.


2. Making an effort that is simply too great.


Never force yourself or try to force something out of the toilet when it's difficult to push out. Because if you keep pushing it, you run the risk of inflicting further damage on yourself.


Water and fruits like oranges, pawpaws, and apples are all you need.


By doing this, you'll have free access to the restroom and things will be a lot softer and easier for you. Because forcing it might injure the veins in your rectum, which can lead to piles.


Use Of The Toilet As A Toothbrush Holder.


This is a common blunder. It's not a good idea to keep your toothbrush in the bathroom or even next to the toilet.


There are bacteria flying about when you flush the toilet, and these bacteria may get into contact with your toothbrush without you realizing it.


Additionally, you may find yourself brushing your teeth with the same toothbrush you used on your gums. Things like this have the potential to have negative health consequences for the human body. So, no matter where you drop your toothbrush, it's recommended that you wash it before using it.


While using the restroom, don't use your phone.


This describes a large portion of the population. It's not uncommon for people to talk on their phones or send text messages while using the restroom.


This has the drawback of increasing your risk of illness from the toilet, especially if it is not clean, as you spend more time there.


5. Dancing in the bathroom or while taking a bath (Toilet).


To dance or play in the toilet is a harmful habit. Many people have died as a result of such acts. If you make one errant move, you run the risk of colliding with the floor or a wall. If the damage is severe enough, it could potentially be fatal. While using the toilet or bath, refrain from dancing or making ridiculous movements.


Using the Toilet While It's Open. 6. Flushing the Toilet.


Many people have no idea about this and end up doing the same error over and over again. Always close the toilet before flushing when using it.


For the simple reason that when you flush, certain microscopic organisms from your pee or feces escape detection by your eyes. And if you do that, you may unwittingly inhale harmful particles, which could lead to an infection in your body system.


After using the toilet, don't forget to wash your hands.


You should always wash your hands after going to the bathroom. It makes no difference how long you are on the toilet for. Make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before handling anything. Take your time and use as much water and soap as you need for at least five minutes.


Inadequate hand washing after using the toilet can put you at risk of contracting diseases like typhoid.


Staying in the restroom for an excessive amount of time.


Some folks can even spend as long as we do in the bathroom. Some people end up turning the toilet into a place where they read books, chat, or make phone calls, which is a negative habit because it's bad for the body. Instead of improving your health, you're making it worse by putting yourself at risk.
