  • When you flush the toilet and the toilet seat lid is up fecal matter goes into the air and settles onto things that are sitting out in the bathroom- like toothbrushes on the counter and bath toys sitting out, etc. They did a thing about it on the Today show that my mom watched, then she proceeded to call and tell me all about it. Since then I have really tried to keep my seat lid down. Yuck!

  • Down. We used to have a dog that would drink out of them any chance he got - no matter what was in there - ugh, so we were forced to close all of them all of the time, and even though the dog is now gone, we still do it. I think it just looks better too.
