How to Prevent Poop From Sticking to the Toilet Bowl

As you may know, water has a high surface tension and it clings to surfaces. When you have feces in the toilet bowl, the water molecules bind to it and this creates an adhesive bond that allows the poop to stick firmly to the porcelain.

When you flush the toilet, it should create enough water power to remove debris from the bowl. But if the flush system is weak, you’ll likely see poop sticking to the toilet bowl.

To avoid this problem, make sure that you are using enough water when flushing your toilets. The more water that is used during each flush, the less likely it is that poop will stick to the sides of your toilet bowl.

If you notice your stool sticking to the side of the toilet bowl or being challenging to flush, this could be an indication that there might be excessive oil in your body. Remember, oils float – so if it’s present in water, then it is likely a sign of a potential problem.

If your diet is mainly composed of greasy snacks and meat, you will be left with a sticky residue in the toilet. The fatty content results in an adhesive-like coating that adheres to the bowl’s walls, requiring extra flushes for its full dispersion.

One of the best things you can do for sticky stool is to increase your water intake. A healthy digestive system with healthy stool depends on you staying hydrated. Drinking eight glasses (or 64 ounces) of water per day is recommended for most people.

Additionally, you may find that a special toilet spray can help prevent poo from sticking to your bowl. Toilet sprays create a barrier between the water and the porcelain surface, making it much harder for poo to stick!
