We come to this point on our Cleaning Hacks List. Toilet seats should be cleaned very often because they are having a lot of bacteria. When you flush the toilet, the bacteria will get from the bowl onto the toilet roll, and toilet paper is easy for bacteria.
That’s why you should put a toilet paper roll under the seat. When a toilet is flushed, germs spring from the bowl onto the roll of toilet paper hanging nearby, and because of its material, toilet paper is easy for germs to cling to. Toilet seats, however, are hard for germs to settle on because of the way they’re designed.
You could hold it and risk an accident or — as long as there’s ample toilet paper — you could cover the seat and just do your thing. The latter may seem like the logical choice, but as it turns out, it might not be the best idea after all.
By piling toilet paper onto the seat, you may think you’re shielding your skin from the toilet’s germs, but what you’re really doing is inviting more germs onto your body.
