Look, we all have things that we do when we are alone that we don’t want people to know about. Maybe you pick your nose? Maybe you blow dry your hair while sitting on the toilet? Maybe you like to smell your own farts or you pick your toenails while watching the Bachelorette?
Whatever your weird, alone behavior may be, you don’t have to talk about it. We aren’t asking you to confess. But we do want to bring up one weird behavior that we are pretty sure everyone has done at least once in their lives. We are talking about peeing in the shower.
Peeing in a pool? This isn’t cool because then others have to swim around in your pee. Peeing in the ocean? Sometimes it’s the only option, so we are okay with it. Peeing in the bathtub? Nah, this is weird because then you have to bathe in it. But peeing in the shower….
Toilets usually use between 1.5 and 3 gallons of water with every flush. And, if you have an old toilet, you can be using twice as much! But when you pee in the shower, it just flushes right down the drain saving a lot of water! If you are a homeowner, you know how much your water bill can be! If you are a renter, your landlord will thank you.
Because you are saving water, peeing in the shower in better for the environment. You are already using water in the shower, so why use more to flush down your pee? It makes sense to be efficient while also being good to the environment.
It’s much cleaner to pee in the shower.You won’t have to wipe or worry about toilet paper getting stuck in your little ins and outs. You just have to pee and let the water from the shower clean you up instantly. It’s as simple as that!
Every time you pee in your toilet, the grosser your toilet gets. There is backsplash and the seat and the rim can get pretty yucky. Save yourself some cleaning by using the toilet less. It’s all going down the drain, no matter what!
Move over kegel exercises! We may not need you anymore. If you get inspired by this article and you decide to pee in the shower, try squatting. When you are squatting, try stopping and starting your pee stream to strengthen and tighten the muscles down there.
You know you’ve already done it in your life, so why not embrace it! According to a poll of 1000 women in Glamour, 75 to 80 percent of all women admit to peeing in the shower. So, if this article doesn’t convince you that there is nothing to be ashamed of, maybe that tidbit of info will.
Look, if you can’t get behind peeing in the shower, that is fine. But then try to live by the saying, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down.” This way you can do your part without peeing on yourself.
