Toilet Plume

Just when you thought you were safe to check it out, Toilet Plume comes along! Sweet Dreams! Swamp

[snip]

There's a certain comfort in the toilet seat cover, the tissue-thin layer of grace between your bare behind and a piece of cold, dirty plastic. But what happens if you forgo the cover, boldly plopping down on a surface crawling with who knows what?

Probably nothing, according to public health experts. Seat covers do not stop germs, they said, and you're not likely to catch an infection from a toilet, anyway.

Toilet seat covers are absorbent and bacteria and viruses are tiny, able to pass through the relatively large holes in the cover's paper, said Kelly Reynolds, a public health researcher at the University of Arizona. That means they don't stop the spread of germs, she said, but the risk of germ transmission from your skin touching a toilet seat is unlikely in the first place.

Germs will more likely spread after you flush, when bits of fecal matter blast into the air in aerosol form, a phenomenon known as "toilet plume." From there, Reynolds said, the "bits of fecal matter settle on surfaces, contaminate hands and then get spread to the eyes, nose or mouth."

Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventative medicine at Vanderbilt University, agreed. He pooh-poohed seat covers to the Huffington Post, which found research has refuted notions that toilet seats spread sexually transmitted infections or gastrointestinal infections.

“That’s because toilet seats are not a vehicle for the transmission of any infectious agents—you won’t catch anything,” Schaffner said.

And covering the seat with toilet paper? That may even make things worse. Placing pieces of toilet paper around the seat as an impromptu cover only increases the surface area for germs to multiply on, as Raymond Martin, a director with the British Toilet Association, told Buzzfeed. That makes it "considerably less hygienic," he said. (And toilet plumes may have blasted fecal matter onto the toilet paper anyway.)

The seat covers can keep things cleaner, however, said Reynolds: They make people more likely to sit on toilets rather than hover over them, reducing general splatter. That makes them a "net benefit," she said.

The biggest risk in public restrooms remains the spread of fecal matter to the mouth, Reynolds said, and that starts with the hands. Just remember to wash your hands, lathering with soap and scrubbing for 20 seconds before rinsing, as the CDC recommends. Then you're truly covered.

A long time ago I read that this "toilet Plume" will mist over the whole bathroom if you don't close the lid first. It will even cover your toothbrush with nasty germs. For this reason I will never brush my teeth again.

In communal bathrooms this can be a major problem as this fecal matter will migrate into the brains of the bathroom users especially when brushing their teeth like in a dorm room. This matter will migrate into the brain and multiply. This may explain why snowflakes have Sxxx for brains.

We're not real sure about this but if I can get a Grant for $10,000,000. I promise to research this problem deeply.

Not only do I shut the lid prior to flushing, but I ALSO keep a cap on my toothbrush, for when my husband forgets to close the lid.

Well I could just put a cap on the glass with my teeth in it. but I still want the 10 mil for research.

Lid? What's that. The ex used to complain about not putting the seat down so I just took it off.

Reb is probably confused on this " flushing" thing. He's probably outside now trying to find the flush handle in his outhouse.

Hate to burst the bubble(Or is it Plume? :) ), but Mythbusters covered this ages ago..... Seems the fecal matter on the toothbrush is coming from the sink water vs the Plume...Funny episode though. :D

See? Toilet to sink to toothbrush- quit brushing!!!!!

BTW- if you flush with the lid up are you covered in fecal matter also? Is this what they call "toilet water" ? Why would they bottle that stuff anyway? This is getting more confusing all the time.

Maybe you need 'toilet water" to spray on yourself if in an outhouse and flushing is not an option? I haven't seen "toilet water" on the market for a while so with the invention of the flush it was not longer necessary to carry a bottle.

Mythbusters was a pretty good TV show - but that is what it was. Considering how few people wash their hands, let alone properly wash their hands, I doubt a little arosol crap would make much of a difference. I don't wash my hands or flush in public restrooms like Walley World! I figure a little of MY crap on me is better than someone else's! I do carry those little hand sanitisers that come in individual packets. Swamp
