Tip of the Week - Dr. Oz Tip
This week's tip is one you may have heard about on the shows "Dr. Oz", "The Doctors" or "The Oprah Winfrey Show". It's a healthful tip that many of us overlook or maybe didn't realize. When using your bathroom toilet if you leave the lid up when flushing, you are essentially spreading a massive amount of germs inside your entire bathroom. If you are leaving your toothbrush on your bathroom vanity, you are basically spreading some germs you many not want from your toilet to your toothbrush and eventually your mouth. It's not a pleasant thought, but once you are aware of it, you can make the simple change of putting the toilet lid down before you flush to prevent this spread of germs. And it is also a good practice to keep your bathroom counters as clean as possible, putting your toothbrushes inside a closed cabinet or in a plastic cover to protect them in case you forget to close the lid or have company over that may not close the lids when flushing. Also, remember to clean the inside of the toilet lids during your weekly cleaning. And you can also use disinfecting wipes daily on your toilet lid and seat to keep the germs down until your weekly cleaning.
