Small children do it often and allegedly even many adults do it - and even if many people feel disgusted at the idea: But emptying your bladder in the shower can have a definite advantage!
Body fluids - not necessarily the favorite topic when you meet your new in-laws for the first time. But apart from hospital stays, the word "urine" tends to be avoided in everyday conversations.
The small "business" is simply done behind a closed door in the toilet. But did you know that many people do the same thing in the shower? And that this is actually a pretty good idea?
Because this saves a lot of water: just by flushing the toilet, every person in Central Europe consumes an average of 15 liters of water a day. In Austria alone this is over 46 billion liters of water a year. A considerable part of which could be saved or would not have to be specially reprocessed if you are already urinating under the running water jet. In addition, toilet paper is saved, since you are cleaning yourself anyway.
So if you want to "switch": If so, then you should pee at the beginning of the shower and not at the end - and it goes without saying that the shower walls and the shower tray should be cleaned regularly. Then there are no smells, like up from dark alleys. There are definitely no health risks. And that is why British and Brazilian environmental protection groups have already advocated leaving when entering the shower stall.
Of course, this suggestion only refers to the cleaning that has already been chosen - additional showering several times a day would, on the contrary, of course, increase the water consumption immensely.
But even after having heard all these arguments, there is still somehow the inhibition of "just letting it go". Or how do you see that?
