5 Good Reasons to Pee in the Shower

Come on, we’ve all done it at some point. Yes, even you over there shaking your head!

But why I ask do people recoil in horror at the thought of peeing in the shower? Obviously, you’re not going to do it in a communal shower – that would be weird, but in the privacy of your own home, why not? You don’t have to tell anybody!

Here are some pretty good reasons why you should pee in the shower…

1. Saves Water

Flushing a toilet uses between 3-6 litres of water. What a waste!

2. Saves money

If you have a water meter in your home, you’re probably aware of the benefits of using as little water as possible. And toilet paper isn’t free either!

3. Saves time

Multi-tasking by peeing and shower at the same time saves valuable minutes when getting ready for work!

4. Cleans your bathroom

Urine from a healthy person is a sterile substance and contains urea, an ingredient often found in household cleaning products. There’s urea in the daily shower spray product I use,  so you’re not making the bathroom dirty by peeing whilst showering – you may actually be helping to clean  it!

5. It’s bad for you to hold it in

You can potentially get a urinary tract infection or cause yourself permanent damage if you hold it in for too long when you need to pee. If you need to go, you should go!


  And if you still don’t fancy it, you could always save water by showering with a friend  instead 😉
