It is especially unhygienic in public toilets, because there we cannot control if the toilet handles, the floor, the door and the faucet are clean like we can do that in our home. And the dirty toilet water is spread everywhere in the public bathroom, and it is spread even on the toilet paper.
Those germs can spread and cause different types of bacteria and viruses such as salmonella, norovirus, E. coil and etc. Even your friend’s phone or tablet can be dangerous too.
