Do you .........

Close the lid before flushing or leave it open?

I used to keep the lid up until I learned that the power of a flush can spray fecal matter particales into the air up to 5 feet away. Every since I learned that 6 years ago I keep my lid down before flushing lol

  • I keep it open to make sure everything goes down. I can be sure to keep a 5 foot distance though!

  • Depends. My son really likes to watch the poop get flushed. Not just his either but mine and my husbands too.

  • Close it! It's pretty gross when you see how far that toilet water sprays! When my DD first started potty training, I'd close the lid and she'd open it again when it was done. Now she closes the lid wherever she uses it. I try to make sure I get out of the stall with the automatic ones before they flush too.
