Common diseases and infections that you get from toilets

Do you find public toilets scary? Well, you are not alone. The mere thought of using a public toilet gives many people the jitters.

There’s no denying the fact that public toilets harbour a number of germs, bacteria and viruses. They inhabit the floor, the sink, as well as surfaces you touch with your hands - the doorknob, the flush handle, the tap handle, the dryer, etc. Some of these notorious creatures may cause gut infection, UTIs, vaginitis, dry and itchy vagina and whatnot.

And that’s why we often resist the urge to use the public restroom. However, despite the bad news, there is no need to panic. Here are some easy hacks and tips to avoid toilet germs:

  1. Use a hand sanitiser or tissue paper while opening the toilet door.
  2. Use a toilet seat cover and if you don't have one clean the toilet seat with toilet paper
  3. The washbasin in public restrooms, like the toilet seat, is unhygienic. It's because you come out to the basin with everything in your hands. Wash your hands thoroughly. Use liquid soap, rinse, and thoroughly wash your hands. Also, if the tap is not automatic, use tissues to close it. Don't forget to dry your hands.
  4. Whether you use a public restroom or not, always use VinzBerry’s Intimate Care and Protection Mist. It not only protects your intimate area from bad odour with its mild fragrance but also helps keep bacteria, itching and dryness at bay. It’s travel-friendly and needs no water to wash off.

By adopting these simple and easy measures, you can bid a sweet goodbye to a number of toilet diseases and infections.
