Flushing while sitting on the toilet? Be careful of bacterial infection!

Friends who flush while sitting on the toilet should be cautious!
No matter the situation, do not flush the toilet before getting up!

When flushing, the water forms a vortex, carrying small particles of waste and bacteria and viruses into the air, blowing them into every corner of the bathroom. If your buttocks are still facing the toilet at this time, those dirty things will stick to your buttocks as well.
Do you think it's over once these dirty things stick to your buttocks?
Viruses or bacteria can take advantage of the opportunity to enter our bodies through the urethra and reproductive organs, causing infections. Especially for women, their urethra is shorter than men's, and their special physiological structure is more susceptible to infection.

The toilet is a "breeding ground" for bacteria in the bathroom. Even after flushing, there are still hundreds of thousands of bacteria on the toilet walls, and the bacteria on the toilet seat that comes into close contact with our buttocks are countless. Moreover, in the dark and humid environment of the bathroom, these bacteria can survive for several days. If a toilet seat cover is placed on the toilet seat, the number of bacteria can be dozens of times that of the toilet bowl! These bacteria can cause diseases such as diarrhea, gynecological infections, hemorrhoids, acute gastroenteritis, and so on. It's hard to prevent!

Moreover, people nowadays can't live without their phones. Using a phone for a long time while on the toilet increases the time spent in a "pile of bacteria," and over time, constipation can also become a problem.

Here are a few reminders to minimize the spread and growth of bacteria:

1.Get up from the toilet before flushing. 
To prevent bacteria from sticking to your body or clothes, and to prevent bacteria from contaminating your toothbrush, cup, and towel, always remember to close the toilet lid before flushing and minimize the escape of bacteria.

2.Clean the toilet regularly. 
The inner walls of the toilet, the seat ring, and the flush button are the main gathering places for bacteria. When cleaning, you can use some cleaning agents to assist in the cleaning.

3.Ventilate the bathroom regularly. 
The main condition for the growth of bacteria is a dark and humid bathroom. Ventilate the bathroom regularly, wipe areas with water, and if there are no windows or poor ventilation, you can install an exhaust fan in the bathroom.

These methods are actually very simple, but people may not pay attention to them in their daily lives or find it difficult to adhere to them. Cleaning the bathroom is also a laborious task. If conditions permit, you can consider buying a smart toilet. Smart toilets automatically lift and close the lid, reducing the chance of human contact with the toilet. Many smart toilets also have antibacterial functions, making them more hygienic and convenient.

The smart toilets produced by Foshan OVS sanitary ware Co., Ltd. automatically sense flushing after the buttocks leave the seat cover, and the lid automatically closes after flushing, reducing your contact with bacteria and safeguarding your health!
