One more reason to hate the toilet......
Did you know that when you flush the toilet that an aerosol like spray of whatever is in your toilet, at the time, sprays up to 20 feet away from your toilet. My sister-in-law is adamant about flushing with the lid down and keeps plastic covers on hers and her sons toothbrushes to keep the spray off. I was scoffing, just a tad, at the idea and then I decided to look it up online. UUUUCK!
There were endless articles and posts on the subject. I will include the 2 that I found the most informative.
