9 things most people do wrongly


The fact is that no matter how we try to do things carefully or rightly, there are still some mistakes that we never know we make.

Such mistakes are often made in the toilet, bathroom, shower, etc.

1. Flushing the toilet while the lid is open

Most people do not actually take note of this error without knowing that the lid is meant to be closed while flushing in order to keep the gross particles in the toilet and out of air.

A Microbiologist from the University of Arizona, Charles Gerba said that fecal matters and urine can fly as far as six feet away from the toilet bowl during each flush.

2. Rubbing your body aggressively with towel

It is better to pat your body dry to maintain the lipids, proteins and fatty acids that protect your skin from irritation and could be removed if you rub your body aggressively with a towel.

3. Not rinsing your body well

Many, especially the male gender, do not rinse their body well which could lead to irritation and blocked pores that can cause acne (pimples).

4. Throwing wet wipes into the toilet

Many people have the mindset that wipes are flushable being ignorant of the harm it causes by blocking sewage systems.

According to research conducted by Consumer Reports, some personal cleansing wipes still could not break down in the water after ten minutes compared to regular toilet paper which disintegrate within seconds.

Sanitary napkins, tampons, condoms, band aids and dental floss are toiletries that should also not be flushed down the toilet.

5. Sitting on water closet for too long

It is true that the neat toilet is a conducive and quiet place to read, chat, scroll through social media, etc which most people do.

Sitting on that ceramics seat for more than ten minutes puts a lot of pressure on the veins of the lower rectum which can cause hemorrhoids (piles).

Just know that the toilet is not for your ‘me’ time.

6. Piling your hair on your head as you shampoo

Have you ever wondered why your hair gets tangled when shampooing? Well, it is simply because you pile your hair on top of your head while shampooing.

It is advised that it is best to shampoo your hair in its natural positions to get a better locks.

7. Pooing too hard

It is advised not to force out strong, hard, stubborn, large and constipated poo-poo.

It is better to increase your intake of water and fiber, engage in exercise regularly and try squatting for a few seconds which will reduce the pressure on the veins down there that boost the risk of hemorrhoids.

8. Not rinsing your bar soap in between use

This error is common.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pathogenic organisms may be hiding out on bar soap during and after use.

To be on the safer side, you should rinse the bar soap before and after use in order to rinse off the germs.

9. Placing toilet brush back into its hold immediately after use

Let the brush get dry completely in order not to aid in breeding of toilet germs and moisture.
