– When you use a hand dryer, it can blow bacteria around you – even though the air coming from it is perfectly clean!
– Even though toilet paper is supposed to break down when it gets wet, there’s still a possibility of clogging if the plumbing system isn’t new or if you use too much of it.
– The “open-flush” toilets in public restrooms don’t have a lid to block all the germy microscopic droplets that come spewing out with each flush.
– The gap on the front of the seat that makes it look like a horseshoe is there because of plumbing codes. Since 1995, all public toilets must have this open seat.
– Bacteria and viruses are tiny enough to easily soak in through the paper the covers are made of.
– You can find toilet paper in different colors on the market. But most manufacturers bleach it to make it softer.
– No one knows for sure, but some think that this name appeared back in the 16th century when Sir John Harrington invented Britain’s first flushing toilet.
– In many homes, there’s a vent pipe that goes outside to the roof. When the wind blows hard above that pipe, the air pressure in it is lowered.
– Most American toilets use a syphonic system, which forcibly draws toilet water down the drain.
