Also question is, why should you put the lid down on toilet?
1. It's More Sanitary. If you need areason besides common courtesy (which we'll get to in aminute) to put the toilet seat back down, trythis: we should actually all be putting both thetoilet seat AND the toilet lid down, because flushingwith the toilet lid up can cause germs from thetoilet to spread into the air.
Also Know, what happens when you flush with the lid up? It's all down to what is known as "toilet plume" —the small particles of waste that mix with the water in your toiletafter you flush and which can shoot aerosolized feces intothe air (as high as 15 feet, apparently!). So basically, anuncovered toilet that's not in use can still spread bacteria.Ew.
Moreover, should you flush with the lid down?
If you flush with the toilet seat up,you're doing it wrong. If you don't close thelid, a lot of harmful bacteria can spray all over yourbathroom. Make flushing with the lid closed your number 1priority, especially if there's a different number in the toiletbowl.
Should you flush every time you pee?
People should still flush their toilets atleast once a day. "Things like to grow in urine and after awhile the chlorine will inactivate in the toilet bowl water. Theodor will increase so it can get disgusting, smell bad and stainyour toilet," he said.
