Keep The Door Closed

For the sake of privacy, yours as well as that of others, keep the door firmly closed at all times while conducting your business. In fact lock it just to be sure.

The Toilet Seat Dilemma

Okay grab a notepad and write this down ‘The toilet seat ALWAYS stays down’. Do this to not just showcase your good manners but also for the sake of hygiene; it has been scientifically proven that if the seat isn’t down flushing the toilet can contaminate objects like toothbrushes that are within two feet of the commode. Not just the seat, also ensure that you keep the seat cover down, that way you’d earn extra brownie point with the ladies.

Aim Boys, AIM

Boys, stand close enough to the pan or urinal so you don’t dribble on the floor and please concentrate when you pee so you don’t wet the seat, walls or floor. If you’re UNSTEADY on your feet, sit on the pan but never ever leave the seat wet.

May That Bottle of Toilet Cleaner be Your Best Buddy Ever

Before you throw the next house party, make sure that your washroom has a sparkling bowl, you know, for the ladies. Use any good toilet bowl cleaner. Oh no, you don’t have to thank us 😛
And don’t forget that ANY cleaner would contain Hydrochloric Acid so use a pair of rubber gloves so you don’t burn your hands.

Toilet Cleaning

Keep it Quiet, Stupid!

Try to keep potty sound to a minimum. I mean we know that such ‘natural sounds’ are hard to control, but try, ok?

Say Hello to Air Freshener

Save yourself the embarrassment and just buy some air freshener. Stick to basic unisex scents that aren’t too overwhelming – after all, you don’t want to smell like air freshener.

Pro tip: If you run out of air freshener, just light a matchstick before you step out of the toilet. That won’t make it smell as pleasant as, say, roses but it would help deodorize the area. Unpleasant smells are because of gases which get oxidized due to the flame.

 Check for mystery stains

Something that bothers every girl is dried toothpaste stains on the washbasin. Make sure you keep an eye on that and scour the rest of your washroom for soap scum or any other mystery stains. It’s best to tackle these once a week to prevent major buildup.

  1. Before you comment on boys, try writing something for girls. I have seen many girls not using the toilets properly and that’s because of not having proper knowledge. Don’t point out mistakes in guys. Just a suggestion , try writing for both boys and girls. That would be common. Coz everybody makes mistakes!!

  2. LOL Namya Great article! You made my day. Greetings!

  3. Thank You Ada Gibson 🙂

  4. A lot of people pee over and outside the commode.
    Secondly, some people sit over commode with shoes. It causes dust on commode.
    In GCC countries, many times found water on the floor of washroom. Why?
