The bathroom is one area most people overlook when it comes to paying attention to it’d impact on human health.
No matter how neat you think your bathroom is, certain areas will breed bacteria that can affect your health.
See areas most women make mistakes in the bathroom.
1. Drying yourself vigorously
Drying yourself vigorously can damage the skin or even aggravate skin issues or skin irritation. The ideal way is to pat your skin with a soft towel.
2. Wrong wiping
The right way is to wipe from front to back. There is a lot of bacterial flora around the anus, perianal area, or genital area which can be transferred when wiped wrongly.
3. Excess wiping
Just like drying the skin vigorously, excess wiping can cause irritation on sensitive skin. Use soft tissues or wipers for a good wipe.
4. Sitting on the toilet for too long
For some people, the toilet seat becomes a place to read books, watch videos or scroll through social media when they get in. However, sitting on the toilet seat for too long can cause hemorrhoids because the seated position adds a lot of pressure on the veins in your lower rectum which can cause it to swell.
5. Placing toilet brush back into the holder immediately after use
This act can cause germs and moisture to breed in the brush. Before putting the brush in its holder, allow it to dry out.
6. Keeping toothbrush too close to the toilet seat
When being flushed, fecal and urine matter get into the air, and when your toothbrush is close by, they can get into the brush.
7. Not Washing your hand for long
According to research, it takes 20 seconds to give your hands a proper scrub with soap and water. Washing for less than 20 seconds may not clean germs enough.
