If there’s one thing that COVID-19 has taught us, it’s how important washing our hands are. We never realized how easy and fast germs and viruses can spread just by touching. More people are getting sick and affected by coronavirus due to poor hygiene, including improper bathroom etiquettes and lack of social distancing.
The WHO has even made an effort to educate the public about the right way to wash our hands and safe bathroom Etiquettes. Apparently, a lot of us claim that it is a very simple task but as it turns out, we actually did not know how to do it properly.
Washing our hands is not the only thing that we can do to lessen our chances of getting sick. Have you ever heard of the term aerosolization? It means that germs can travel as far as six feet away every time someone coughs or sneezes. This is particularly important to note especially during this pandemic. We have to always be wary and cautious of our daily activities to make sure we don’t put ourselves and our loved ones at risk.
Since bodily fluids can also travel from the toilet into the air, it can spread unknown diseases to people coming in the bathroom.
One way that you can prevent this from happening is by closing the lid before flushing. This way, you’re preventing the germs from aerosolizing.You’re not only protecting yourself but also everyone who will be using the toilet next.Also, make it a habit to keep the bathroom door closed since fecal droplets can linger in the air for a few hours.
Make sure to wash your hands properly after using the bathroom to avoid spreading germs to other people. It’s also important to disinfect your toilet and other surfaces regularly. There are lot of effective products for disinfection that you can use.
Don’t forget to also cleaning and disinfecting high touch points like the flusher, faucet handles and doorknobs. These are the most common areas that people touch and where the spread of germs is highly possible.
Consistency is also a key to this thing. If you’re consistent in washing your hands, closing the lid before flushing and disinfecting the bathroom, then you’re making it harder for the germs to spread. Pre-pandemic, we may have been lax when it comes to our hygiene habit. But these trying times tell us how important it is to maintain a clean and healthy environment.
Of course, all these precautions will be useless if you’re the only one doing it and not your whole family at home. Make sure to also educate them on proper bathroom etiquette and even discuss ideas on how you can improve things at home.
