How fast does germs spread on a piece of toilet paper?

I have OCD and the thought of having germs spreading onto my new laptop just disgusts me. Just wanting to find out how fast germs spread on toilet paper because when I am done with passing feces out I press flush with a piece of toilet paper because I don't want the germs on it to get onto my hands. And yes I do flush it AFTER I clean my hands. I just want to know if the germs are quick enough to spread to my hand while flushing the toilet.

I personally would flush before washing your hands. Waiting until after will just dirty your hands again. Even if touching handle with toilet paper there is fecal flora that flies in the air as a toilet is flushed.

if you go ahead and flush the toilet before you wash your hands, you're good to go! always wash your hands with soap for at least 30 seconds. stay safe and enjoy the holidays...;-)

if you use toilet paper to flush a toilet you probably wont get sick, even if you didn't use toilet paper, washing your hands should kill all the germs.

Why don't you spray the handle with Lysol. Use the toilet,close the lid,wash your hands,then flush. The handle will be clean since you never touched it with dirty hands. Oooooor you could use the bathroom,close the lid,flush,wash your hands so they are clean last
