Taking Hygiene for granted?
Did you Know that each time you
flush, you are not just flushing away nature's call?
In actual, you are also releasing into the bathroom
air large amounts of germs that form above and below
the water line in toilets. With every flush more
germs are being dispersed around the bathroom than
were already present before. In fact, these germs
have the ability to disperse within a 10 feet radius
of the toilet, and they can linger for up to 30
minutes after each flush.
From there, these germs are inhaled through your
nose, or deposited on the toilet flush handle,
toilet seat and even the toilet roll. This means
that you should always keep your toothbrush at least
10 feet away from the toilet. And if you are living
with children, the elderly or those with poor immune
system, they can also be more susceptible to the ill
effects of germs, including diarrhoea and stomach
SARS epidemic has also taught us the urgent need,
and importance of, hygiene- especially in the toilet
where germs tend to thrive. One of the simple ways
to keep your toilet germs under control is to use a
disinfectant toilet blue that disinfects the water
in your toilet with every flush. Remember that a
single bacterium multiplies to a million in the
matter of hours with the right condition.
