Beneficial uses for urine and why you should pee in the shower

Yes, most people are usually ashamed to talk about the things they do in the restroom. Well, maybe they think it’s “dirty,”, but who knows? You’ll be shocked when you find out that some experts think there are benefits to taking a closer look at your own urine. Yes, some experts say that our urine sterile and nontoxic, and they also say that there are certain uses that can be very beneficial to your health. Our urine is made of glucose, amino acids, and electrolytes, all of which are not dangerous.


Peeing in the shower

Besides being completely harmless, urinating in the shower saves a lot of water as well. According to scientists, this habit saves 27% of water by not flushing the water in the toilet, which accounts for 15 l. daily. If you multiply this by our population and the days in a year, we could save tons of fresh water. Some ecological low-flow toilets exist, but even they can’t save that big amount of water. Since almost everyone showers every day, maybe peeing in the shower it’s not so big a deal.

Disinfect wounds

Yes, you got that right – the experts also say that our urine can disinfect wounds. If you get a few bumps or scrapes and your first-aid kit isn’t around, you can clean wounds with fresh urine. Note: and it doesn’t only clean the wound, it soothes your tissues and can alleviate pain. In a pinch you can even use someone else’s urine as long as this “volunteer” doesn’t have any infections. Of course, you should always go to the doctor for any serious injuries.

Skin care

Urine contains urea, an active ingredient which can be found in numerous creams and ointments that can treat skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. Urea is a compound concentrated in the mid-stream of your morning pee. You can collect it and use it by rubbing fresh urine on the affected areas, then leave it to work for at least a couple of hours. And don’t worry – rubbing your urine on the skin is odorless. The urea will balance the amount of acids and basis in your skin and soothe the dry and brittle skin.


You can also use urine compresses to fight and prevent those annoying fungal infections, just like the ones on your feet. How to use it – it’s very simple. You just have to rub urine into the fungal area and let it soak in overnight under a compress. After a few weeks, your symptoms should greatly improve. Note: you should be very careful and for serious fungi you should always visit your doctor who should be able to tell you a lot about your fungus and your urine! Note: you should also know that there are ways to use the urine, such as: as a lawn fertilizer. We really hope you enjoyed this article and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.
