Aerosolized is defined as “an ultramicroscopic solid or liquid particles dispersed or suspended in air or gas” found in feces. OK, we got that covered, but what does that mean for you? It means according to research that every time you flush the toilet these particles can reach up to six feet. So your hair brush, towels, and toothbrush can fall victim to these germs. Close the lid before you flush and replace toothbrushes, brushes, and items that might have been a victim to these germs.
