What is a courtesy flush?



  1. 0 Votes

    The courtesy flush is when you flush immediately after defecation (whether you are done using the toilet or not) to eliminate unpleasant odors before they start to linger in the air. You flush at this middle moment as a courtesy to others who may use the toilet after you, or when you are at someone else’s home. I had never heard of this before either!

    While it makes sense for etiquette, it’s really a step backward from the idea of a dual-flush toilet and flushing only after defecating. You’re not doing water resources any favors by flushing twice when once would suffice!
