Urinating while showering isn’t a thing we are likely to publicly talk about with other people. You may be a bath pee-er yourself, or you may feel it’s completely gross. If you’re on the fence about the whole point, here are 5 excellent factors why you need to pee in the shower!
1. Everybody’s Doing It!
When Glamour conducted a “How Grody Are You?” poll of 1,000 women, they found that about 75% of poll-takers have peed in the shower. I’m not advising you to give into peer pressure, but if you’ve peed in the shower and you feel a bit guilty about it, these numbers might make you feel a little better.
2. Your Bathroom Will Stay Cleaner
This one is pretty straight forward. Every time you use your toilet, you get one step closer to having to clean it. Even if you have great aim, the backsplash from your pee reach the toilet seat and rim. Since you probably aren’t really a fan of cleaning the toilet, pee in the shower! You’ll at least be able to prolong your toilet scrub a little longer.
4. It May Help Get Rid Of Foot Fungus
Yep, I’m serious. Pee is an anti-fungal! Thanks to the uric acid and ammonia pee contains, tinkling on your feet can help keep fungal infections at bay. Pee is actually sterile and it’s a natural remedy for athlete’s foot and other fungi. Basically, you’re doing your toes a solid favor, by keeping them fungus-free!
4. You’ll Get To Feel Like A Rebel
We all like to feel a little rebellious every once in a while right? For those of you who aren’t pierced or tattoo’d or don’t own a leather jacket, why not pee in the shower? You’ll feel free and you’ll feel like rebel, even if it’s only for a few seconds.
5. It’s Good For The Environment
Toilets use between 1.5 and 3 gallons of water every time you flush. Older toilets use even more! Think about all of the water you can save by peeing in the shower instead. You’ll be able to lower your electric bill and have a positive impact on the environment at the same time. Win, win! Save water, pee in the shower, save the planet!
