Think Twice...by Juli


Don't laugh at me, but I was watching Oprah's "All Stars" on her new network and Dr. Oz mentioned something about how bacteria sprays into the air when you flush the toilet. I don't know about you but I was never ever taught to put the toilet seat down and then flush. Did you know that? Well since this is 'Healthy' month, I could not help but share this info. Seriously you can have E-Coli on your toothbush!!! When I saw this video I turned to the hubster and said..."New rule, put the seat down and then flush." You tell your husband and children too, k?

Myth Busters also did a toothbrush experiment that was pretty, shall I saw disturbing? See it {here}

Also here is another random fact that I think of every single time I use a public restroom. There was a study done that tested which bathroom stall is the cleanest. You may think the handicapped one, or the ones near the end.You are wrong. The first stalls are cleaner. I guess people like more privacy and end up in the middle or farthest stalls, so they are dirtier. Well next time we are shopping and need a potty break I will be watching which stall you go into...Muahahahaha...

That is why i guess my mom bought the drawers in there because when she heard about that years ago she was grossed out. Super funny!

Juli-I always thought my mom came up with that rule herself! It has always been mandatory at our house, but that's not a surprise, is it? "Take your shoes off and shut the toilet lid!!!!!" ;)

Jodi-GROSS!!! Why are the water cups in the bathroom?!?!

Ask my mom's boss. It is where she has always kept the water cooler and cups. Weird huh!?!?!?!
