Each common bathroom item tested was found to be loaded with disease-causing intestinal bacteria, such as e. coli and many other serious pathogens. The doctor said these pathogens can cause everything from minor skin rashes to serious intestinal illness.
He also said the bacterial contamination comes straight from the toilet. You see, during flushing many thousands of extremely fine droplets of toilet water are sprayed up into the air, traveling as much as 20 feet.
These fine droplets of toilet water can hover in the air for as long as two hours, eventually settling on all surfaces throughout the bathroom.
The doctor stated emphatically that the only way to help limit toilet water spray contaminated with intestinal bacteria from coating your bathroom is to shut the lid on the toilet before you flush.
A Problem You Might Never Have Considered
Of course, training the kids (or even hubby) to do put the lid down before flushing can be problematic. After all, it's pretty much deeply ingrained in us to flush the toilet and stand there for a moment watching the toilet water swirl as your you-know-what disappears down the hole.
During potty training, you probably even trained your kids to stand there and watch as they flushed. You might have even patted them on the head and emphatically gushed "Good boy!" or "Good girl!" as they watched the toilet being flushed.
So putting the lid down before flushing is probably going to be a hard habit to break, even in grown adults, because of there's often an underlying lifelong psychological fixation with watching the toilet flush after each use.
But clearly it's a habit well worth breaking, especially considering this latest evidence that disease-causing intestinal germs, fecal pathogens and other nasty microbes are literally blanketing your bathroom every time the toilet is flushed with the lid still up.
Colloidal Silver to the Rescue!
This is one reason why I keep a small pump spray bottle full of colloidal silver in the cabinet under the sink.
Unlike commercial antiseptic sprays for bathrooms and kitchens, colloidal silver contains no potentially harmful chemicals. You can spray it on all bathroom surfaces, including toilet seats, without fear of getting harsh and potentially harmful chemicals on yourself or your children’s skin when they later use the bathroom.
Colloidal silver is composed of tiny, microscopic particles of pure natural mineral silver in water. It cannot harm the skin, or any part of the body. In fact, silver is actually very good for the skin, and promotes skin healing, which is why most hospital burn units use a silver-based gel called Silvadene on serious burn victims. The silver in the gel promotes healing of the burnt skin from the moment it is applied, and stops the burnt flesh from becoming infected.
By filling a small pump spray bottle with safe, natural colloidal silver and lightly "misting" your bathroom surfaces, faucets, handles, towel racks, bath towels and rags, etc. with it, you can keep your bathroom and all of the items in it virtually pathogen-free all day long.
Spray Your Bathroom With Colloidal Silver
In fact, using a simple pump spray bottle from Wal-Mart, I lightly mist my toilet, sink, drain, and all bathroom contact surfaces daily with colloidal silver.
What's really great about colloidal silver is that you can lightly spray toothbrushes, combs, hairbrushes or just about any common bathroom item with it, and the tiny silver particles in the fine mist from the pump spray bottle will quickly air dry on the items you’ve sprayed, and provide antimicrobial protection above and beyond what most any commercial antiseptic spray can provide.
Of course, you wouldn't spray common bathroom items like toothbrushes or drinking cups with a commercial antiseptic spray, because those are items you’ll later be sticking into your mouth or drinking from. And you don't want to end up ingesting potentially harmful chemicals.
But with colloidal silver, it’s perfectly safe to do so. In fact, I spray my toothbrush after every use, and most all of my bathroom implements such as razor blades, combs, hairbrushes, shower caps, drinking cups, etc.
Why Colloidal Silver?
Colloidal silver is actually a common all-natural liquid nutritional supplement found in just about every health food store in America.
Most experienced colloidal silver users drink it, either regularly, in small daily amounts, in order to prevent infections, or periodically, in slightly larger amounts, to cure active infections.
Because of its powerful antibiotic qualities, experienced colloidal silver users drink anywhere from a teaspoonful to an ounce a day, or even more during times of illness, because it is such a great internal infection-fighting and immune-boosting nutritional aid.
So spraying it on bathroom items such as a toothbrush that you'll be putting into your mouth later won't hurt at all. It will only keep the item as germ-free as possible – completely naturally!
Your Filthy Toothbrush and Colloidal Silver
I have often stated that next to the can opener in your kitchen, your toothbrush is one of the filthiest implements in your household.
After all, you put it into your mouth at least two or three times a day, and after each use you probably give it a cursory rinse and then let it set there in its holder all day breeding germs.
But for the past 13 years, I've sprayed my toothbrush with colloidal silver after each use, and just let it air dry. And I've never had to worry about my toothbrush being laden with nasty, disease-causing germs when I stick it in my mouth after each meal.
That's because colloidal silver quickly and easily kills virtually all pathogenic microorganisms within moments after coming into contact with them. And it keeps working all day long.
I also spray my combs and brushes, and other bathroom items after each use. It's quick and easy. And it works like a charm, keeping my bathroom items safe from disease-causing germs, yes, even if someone inadvertently flushes the toilet with the lid still up, releasing potentially dangerous pathogens from the toilet into the air in my bathroom.
The Only Problem: Colloidal Silver is Costly
Unfortunately, colloidal silver can be costly. In fact, in health food stores it can cost as much as $15 to $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle.
That may be a small price to pay if you're sick with a cold or flu, and you want to drink some colloidal silver to stop the infection. But it makes it very cost-prohibitive for use in spraying your bathroom, kitchen, and other household areas.
But there's good news: With a tiny device called a colloidal silver generator, you can make your own colloidal silver, quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for only about 36 cents a quart.
That's right -- you can make extremely high-quality colloidal silver for just pennies a quart. And it's as easy to do as brewing a cup of coffee.
