Peeing sitting down makes splashing less
Show me a ‘sniper’ who claims to never miss the middle of the bowl …
And I will show you a liar !
And that’s not all…
Even men who pee perfectly straight still dirty the toilet.
This is because a jet of urine creates a fine mist of urine which settles on the sides of the bowl.
And believe me, even though this mist is invisible to the naked eye, its scent does not pass never unnoticed!
And over time, this mist builds up and forms a sticky film on the floors and walls of the toilets.
Yuck! It really is one of the craziest things in the universe.
No one wants to clean that up … No one should have to clean that up.
Fortunately, the number of men who pee while sitting is increasing every year …
Can you guess why?
It is because more and more people have smartphones…
And as a result, they are spending more and more time on social media, including in the bathroom.
Let’s face it …
Who hasn’t spent more time on the throne than usual while checking out their Instagram?
