Any surface in your bathroom can be catching these germs

I suspect that many readers will share that sentiment.  This room has the potential to be the dirtiest, most germ infested rooms in the house.  If you think about what goes on in that room, this should come as no surprise.  Web Md quotes Charles Gerba, PhD, a professor of microbiology at University of Arizona in Tucson that flushing the toilet with the lid up is not wise. Dr. Gerba asserts that “Polluted water vapor erupts out of the flushing toilet bowl.  He further states that it can then take several hours for these particles to finally settle.  This brings him to the following conclusion “If you have your toothbrush too close to the toilet, you are brushing your teeth with what’s in your toilet.” 

While erupting germs are gross enough; think about the other surfaces in your bathroom that you touch several times a day. The taps on your bathroom sink for example.  If they are within six feet of the toilet they too can accumulate this erupting water vapor.  When you turn off the water after washing your hands in the wash basin your hands are coming in contact with whatever urine and feces particles could hitch a ride on some water vapor.  This becomes a problem whenever you eat, touch your mouth, or rub your nose.  These germs are now very close to points of entry to the body.

Any surface in your bathroom can be catching these germs.  It is important that any surface that is often touched after washing is easy to keep bacteria free.  The most obvious culprit of spreading this type of germ is the bathroom sink taps.  In public restrooms it is recommended that a paper towel be used when turning off taps.  At home this precaution is not necessary provided the surfaces are cleaned properly.

When planning a bathroom renovation keep ease of cleaning in mind when choosing your bathroom sink taps.  A simple design is best when cleaning is a priority.  There are many designs and options when it comes to the type of tap available. You can easily find a style that does not contain scroll work in which the germs can accumulate.  At the very least choose a design that has a lever for the on/off, hot/cold function rather than two rotating knobs. This will make keeping the surface most often touched after hand washing half as difficult to clean.
