A recent survey by the Water Quality and Health Council found that literally 20% of Americans have confessed to using a pool as a toilet!
For #1 only as far as the study is concerned.
Another surprisingly gross statistic is that 70% of people jumped right in without showering beforehand.
We didn't know anyone showered before going in a pool.
Apparently sweat, cosmetics, sunscreen, perfume, hair stuff, etc. can mix with chlorine to create irritants that cause skin rashes and red eyes.
So it's not the chlorine itself that does that! It's the gross people you're swimming with!
So shower before and after swimming, make sure kids have water-proof diapers and please please PLEASE stop peeing in the pool!!!
