Ahh, the relaxing tubby. A time to just totally relax and lay in the tub for awhile. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, will get you out of that tub, it feels so nice. It’s all that relaxing, warm water that just creates that urge to pee.
To pee, or not to pee, that is the question. Admit it, you’ve peed in the tub, and I myself do it all the time. Every time I bathe. Seriously. There’s nothing wrong with it, or so I thought. Since I tend to use my tub water for a toilet bowl I decided to look up the possible health risks of peeing in the tub and found out that while peeing in the tub is considered gross to most people over 4 (have an open mind, people?!), there are no potential health risks to peeing in the tub while bathing.
Pee is sterile. This means you’re not dirtying your bath water by peeing in the tub. You’re not getting yourself filthy all over again. As your urine is filtered by blood in the kidneys, it does become very sterile, and barring a kidney or bladder infection, the resulting pee in the tub is likely cleaner than your dirty hair. So unless you have an infection of some sort in your bladder or kidneys, that golden shower you’re giving yourself in the tub is A-OK.
That is, unless you have a problem with peeing in the tub. I have no idea why people have an issue with this. My fiance says it’s disgusting, yet he pees in the shower all the time, especially when I make it to the potty first (ha ha). What’s so bad about peeing in the tub anyhow? If you’re dying of thirst you can actually DRINK your own pee, so why not bathe in it?
Here’s a thought- you wipe your dirty butt in the tub and sit in stagnant poo remnant water, yet you gag at the thought of peeing in the tub. Perhaps peeing in the tub sterilizes the feces remnants floating around in the tub? Betcha never thought of that, did ya? All I can say is if you’re willing to bathe yourself in water that you’ve had your dirty butt, armpits, and sweaty head in, basically making you a soup of human filfth, you should be OK with bathing in your own pee as well. At least the urine is sterile. Probably the cleanest thing you’re putting in that tub.
