Did you know these about your toilet?

  • Vapors that rise in the air when you flush the toilet persist almost 2 days!

Obviously, you should better close the toilet lid before flushing.

  • You can unclog your toilet using baking soda and vinegar

Put a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar in the toilet and let these substances work. After an hour, try flushing the toilet to see if the problem has been fixed.

  • The toilet bowl cannot “swallow” anything

To avoid clogging your toilet bowl, you must be careful what you throw in there. Avoid toilet paper, napkins or similar products. Never throw in the toilet tampons or other feminine hygiene products, condoms, cat litter or children’s diapers. All these must be put in the trash bin. If you unfortunately do have  major clogged plumbing pipes leading to a backed up system, call the best emergency plumbing services Denver has immediately.

  • Sitting on the toilet can affect your health

Sitting on the toilet, in that position slightly bent forward, compresses the nerves in the pelvic area. You should not sit on your toilet for more than 5 minutes, although surveys show that many people stay 10, 15 or even 20 minutes. This can have consequences for the body, which go beyond the stage of transient discomfort, contributing to the following problems: hemorrhoids, rectal prolapse, transit disorders, pelvic floor problems or posture issues.
