#1 Reason #1: It Spreads Way Less Germs

If you’re someone who would never dream of leaving your pee in the toilet, your number one reason is probably hygiene. It’s gross and unsanitary to skip a flush, right?

Well, hold onto your hats, because we’re about to blow your mind: you spread more germs when you flush.

Studies call it “toilet plume,” and it’s what happens when you flush and send up a spray of yuck into the air around you.

Flushing as infrequently as possible (and keeping the lid down when you do) can seriously cut back on how many germs are floating around your bathroom.

#2 Reason #2: It Saves 9 Gallons Of Water

Every time you flush the toilet, you’re using a whole heck of a lot of water to pull the waste away.

If you have a super-spiffy, efficient toilet, you’re probably only using about 1.5 gallons a flus — but older toilets use an average of 3-5 gallons of water, and in some cases may even use as much as 7 gallons.

If you flush every single time you pee (6-10 times a day), you’re wasting 9 gallons of water at best every day.
