Leaving the toilet seat up or down...

Really shouldn't even be a question, considering you should ALWAYS close the lid when flushing to stop poop particles from spraying all over the bathroom 🤷‍♀️

I've had pets since I was a kid, so I just close it out of habit so they can't drink from the toilet 🤣

Yes ofc it will still spread through the gap, but not to the same extent.

Poop particles was easier to say than specifying each of those possible bacteria etc. It's not made up, it's the same as pathogens spreading with a sneeze.. through aerosol. Lots of studies about it, here's the short version. Even if it's a greater risk in public rest rooms I prefer not being showered with bacteria or have it shower my towel or toothbrush

@Justin Haha well that's the Wikipedia summary, however there are several scientifical articles I just found they'd be a rougher read to tell the same thing

I've shared a bathroom with my younger brother my whole life and I wasn't even aware of this concept until I had my first girlfriend when I was 19 and she got really upset that I wouldn't close the lid. At 28, I still always just leave it however I use it. I can't be bothered with small trivial stuff like that. If I can lift the toilet each time a girl is done using it, then she can put the seat down every time, when she wants to use it. I find it difficult to get along with people who get upset over this petty action/gesture.

By the time you can smell it, it's too late. Besides, aren't you doing a courtesy flush while you're still sitting?

I have accidentally fallen in because of the seat being up, it is not fun, -3/10 do not recommend 🙃 I try to always leave at least the seat down when I'm done as a result
