A hygiene expert has warned people about the reason they shouldn’t be peeing in the shower and should use the toilet beforehand – and it’s surprisingly not hygiene related
You may think that it’s more environmentally friendly, and easier, to pee while you’re in the shower, but a hygiene expert has warned that you shouldn’t be doing this – and it’s not for the reasons you may think.
It you wee in the shower, the thinking is you can immediately clean yourself afterwards. But hygiene expert, @madamesweat, warns against forming such habits, explaining why you need to use the toilet before you get into the cubicle.
Madame Sweat said: “Here’s why you shouldn’t pee pee in the shower – and no, it’s not hygiene related. A urinal gynaecologist suggests that it’s habit forming, and it’s not a habit that you want to form.
“They suggest that perhaps we will hear and associate running water with the urge to urinate. This is just a bad habit. How about, just use the toilet before you get into the shower?”
A debate ensued in the comments, with many saying that they do wee in the shower, and others saying it’s something they’d never do.
One wrote: “Everybody does it!”, but another disagreed, commenting: “This is not something I would ever do.” A TikToke user said they’d “heard of worse – peeing in the bath”, and Madame Sweat was mortified, responding with: “Oh please no!”
“I love peeing in the shower, and I will not stop”, someone argued, and one woman even said that everyone already “associates running water with urination”, but Madame Sweat said: “Not everyone does.”
A social media user even shared that they thought it was a good idea to pee in the shower because it “saves money”, but the expert highlighted it just wasn’t worth it.
