Do not put your toilet paper on the seat, WHY? Read to Find out

Some people feel nervous using someone else s bathroom. Others have seen so many disastrous ones to trust them at all. Whenever we use a public restroom, we roll the dice.What we can find behind these doors if we can even close them. Grimy floors, filthy seats or busted toilets, sometimes is a very ugly picture.

But anyway when nature calls sometimes this public toilets are our final option.You need to stop if you build a paper barrier in the toilet.We all assume that toilets seats are covered in bacteria. But actually, toilet seats are designed to not pick up any bacteria. They are rather safe to sit on because their smooth surface prevents bacteria from sticking around. So don’t expect to get sick from sitting on dry publics toilet seat, because germs cannot multiply on bare skin alone. The real germs are on the toilet paper.

Nothing else in a bathroom stall is designed to prevent bacteria from sticking to it. When we flush the toilet, germs get spread all around the stall. They latch onto the walls, the door handle, the toilet paper dispenser, and, of course, the actual toilet paper. Unfortunately, perfect for collecting bacteria is toilet paper’s surface. Germs settle right into the paper.  We make it awfully easy for these nasty germs to get into our bodies because we use the toilet paper it to blow our noses or wipe our faces.

Every surface of a public restroom is festering with bacteria, also including the sink and the hand dryers.  Responsible for distributing high amounts of bacteria around a restroom, according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Microbiology are largely electric hand dryers.

    Interesting perspective here, although with the evidence provided I fail to see how not putting down a paper barrier is the answer. I personally remove the first foot or so of paper off of the roll if I’m going to use it to blow my nose; you could do the same for a barrier. You can also get a spray form of hand sanitizer that should work well for the seat.
