mostly down in this house as there are 3 women.


Harpstrings Report 17 Jun 2008 22:44

Down no matter what sex you are. Surely it is a gentlemanly thing to do to leave the seat down ready for the lady of the house! lol

You really should flush with the lid down.

When you flush, the water and bacteria are ejected into the air, where it lands on everything in the bathroom, including your toothbrush. Yuck!

Flushing with the lid done prevents the spread of E. Coli.

Yea I am back. Errol the Sheep has the right Idea its fresher and a nice view. some of the public ones i have been into are not worth a mention.

Oh the history of the toilet seat is it was an addition for women. Original toilets didnt have one. I will "stand" corrected.

Seat and lid down as much as is practical, hate the thought of germs spreading and if there is a fly about it could transfer bacteria from loo seat etc to elsewhere in the house, e.g. downstairs to the kitchen - ugh!
I once read no toothbrush should be left within 6 feet of the loo, or the germs will get to it from the flush.
I always keep mine in bathroom cabinet so closed away.
