Even potty-trained children can get distracted and poop or pee in a nice warm bath. When that happens, the immediate question is how to handle a very gross situation quickly. The next question is whether pee or poop in the tub is dangerous. The final question, of course, is whether it might not be best to just burn the house down and use the insurance money to buy a new one. Fortunately, we have expert answers to those questions. First, the good news. A little pee never killed anyone. Poop is a different story. Pathogens in poop cause diarrhea and pink eye, both of which represent more serious threats to children than to adults. Even some soap and water is better than nothing.

Peeing in the shower is one of those things a lot of people have done at some point but may be reluctant to admit. It makes such perfect sense on a practical level, though! You also may have heard that urine is sterile, so you can pee on yourself with abandon and still technically be clean. Here, experts weigh in on this pressing question.
Cats naturally urinate in a litter box but if they have a reason to avoid the litter box they often choose the bath tub as an alternative. The reasons why there may be litter box avoidance can vary from a simple lack of cleanliness to a life threatening condition. Due to the serious reasons for this problem, it's important for cat owners to know why their cat is peeing in the bath tub. The act of not wanting to pee in the litter box is called litter box avoidance and it is a common occurrence in cats. If a cat associates its litter box with a negative experience it may decide to pee outside the box or in the bath tub. The bath tub is like a large, clean, litter box to a cat so it is an obvious second choice for many felines. Sometimes peeing in the bath tub is a one time occurrence but other times it becomes a regular habit for a cat.
