Toilet Liners Do Not Help Your Hygiene

Samuel Reason - August 8th, 2018

If you are worried when going into a public toilet, only to be reassured by a toilet liner, well you should continue to be worried. A newly published report suggests that toilet liners offer you relatively no protection at all. Because when it comes to hygiene the greatest bacteria risks just happen to fly in the air. And actually, there are relatively no risks when it comes to going into public toilets.

Sure you may be able to find some particular dirty toilets with E. coli and streptococcus on the seats, but as long as you are not sitting down on them with open wounds: well you should be just fine!

Infectious disease specialist and preventive medicine expert, Dr. William Schaffner from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, confirms that these little liners mostly just offer you comfort and peace of mind. In terms of keeping you safe from the previous occupant, that just is not going to happen. Don’t worry though it has nothing to do with toilet liners being ineffective.

The real reason lies in the fact that toilets are just not a place where you catch any diseases. Once thought to be beds of bacteria and sexually transmitted diseases, today it is known this is not the case. This was just an old myth that was thrown around when people did not know any better.

Toilet liners are just helping you deal with that Eww feeling when you step into a public blog. Not that bacteria doesn’t exist on seats, but the skin of our backsides is more than enough of a barrier. The body always has natural ways of keeping safe.

In fact, the best way to avoid catching any illness in the restroom is to follow the age-old saying of washing on your hands and drying them correctly. Yes just listen to your grandma, use hot water and soap on your way out of the toilet.
