It can be difficult to decide which bathroom is best for you and your family, but one way to do it is to take a shower.
In fact, one study found that taking a bathroom break during the day is associated with an increase in the risk of bladder infections.
Now, researchers have uncovered the best way to clean the bathroom without having to shower.
The study was conducted by researchers at the University of Ottawa and published in the Canadian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.
“It is important to remember that there is no single ‘magic bathroom’ that will remove all the bacteria,” said lead researcher Dr. Stephanie Eberhardt.
“In fact, there are a number of different types of sinks, shower heads, shower curtains, and toilets that we recommend for cleaning and disinfecting.”
The research team conducted a study of over 100 people who had been asked to take part in a survey to help identify the best and most efficient ways to clean and disinfect the bathroom.
“We looked at the most commonly used types of toilet surfaces, the showerheads, shower curtain, and the shower curtain itself,” Dr. Eberhart said.
“For the most part, showerheads are the most effective for reducing the risk, but you can also use a hand-held shower head to clean, disinfect, and disinfect your toilet.”
In the study, participants were asked to use either the toilet itself or a water source to wash and rinse.
“Most people choose to use the water in the showerhead as it is less likely to become contaminated,” said Dr. Andrea Smith, a co-author of the study and an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the U of O. “It was surprising to see that showerhead users were more likely to use a hands-free water source, as the hand-washing was also much more effective at removing the most common bacteria.”
Handwashing was a good option, as we also found that the water was also more likely than the toilet to be disinfected.
“The researchers found that handwashing was more effective than the shower head in reducing the incidence of urinary tract infections.”
For those who prefer to use their hands, the study found a hands wash was the most cost-effective method.””
The water is very soft, so there is less risk of bacteria getting on your hands.”
For those who prefer to use their hands, the study found a hands wash was the most cost-effective method.
“Using a hand wash will cost around $1 per 10 liters, which is not that much compared to the cost of a toilet flush,” Dr Eberhard said.
She also stressed that toilet and showerhead use is not the only way to wash a toilet.
“We know that a hand washing also helps with the flow of urine, so washing with a toilet bowl is another option,” she said.
