18 CRAZY Facts About Your Bathroom | Wednesday Checkup

  • Published: 09 May 2019

        And most women here in Japan DONT use soap to wash their hands. They literally just run water under their hands, no friction, and they use their little personal hand towels.

              I don't like how you said women waste toilet paper. We need more toilet paper. We have a larger area to cover and our area doesnt instantly dry like men's. If we did that wed wet our undies and then get infections. That was low for you and im unsubscribing. We don't want to touch our pee as well. When we use toilet paper there is a lot of liquid it needs to soak up unlike men so we use more.

                  My boyfriend thinks rinsing your hands under water with no soap cleans the germs off... unfortunately.

                              Another thing I learned and I have to do now: First you dry your hands with the paper towel, then you use said towel to close the faucet without touching its surface (the same one you previously touched with dirty hands). Some public restrooms have faucets that close on their own because of that sanitary reason.

                                      I always let my hands air dry and literally don’t touch anything until they are dry. Is that sanitary?

                                                          Boys don’t use toilet paper when they pee so if you average out toilet paper use to total visits to the restroom of corse it will be lower than that of a woman who has to use toilet paper every visit.

Men’s number of toilet paper squares used is skewed because they don’t need any toilet paper when they pee. And women definitely do. Please don’t spread that misinformation. Women in American prisons and the military already have enough trouble getting enough toilet paper and hygiene products.

I don't even touch my penis when I pee, I just un buckle, it falls out and I pee. Furthermore, if you ever have done "Oral" on your significant other, how bad can pee be? Defecation is a different matter.

                                                                                                It is said that the mouth of the human has more bacteria than the dogs. However, the bacteria that are present in dogs are more dangerous ...

                                                                                                Is not the same ratio between cell phones and toilet seats?!
