How often do you find yourself rushing to a public restroom but once you get a good look at the toilet, you think to yourself, “I can’t use this!”
Whether it was the three year-old who forgot to raise the seat or the person with dirty boots that thought it was okay to stand and squat, we sometimes run into situations where toilet seat hygiene is not ideal. What do you do? You’re not always in a situation where you can just turn around and walk out — sometimes you really gotta go! Hopefully the next public restroom you’re in has one of the following solutions:
The Toilet Seat Cover
The toilet seat cover is a disposable piece of paper shaped like a toilet seat that can be placed right on the seat. Its purpose is to protect the user from germs that may be resting on the seat by creating a protective barrier. These covers are environmentally friendly, self disposing and biodegradable. If you’re unsure of the cleanliness of the public toilet you’re about to use, toilet seat covers can be your best friend. Even if the seat looks clean, opt for a toilet seat cover to protect against unseen germs.
The Toilet Seat Cleaner
This is my personal favourite! Toilet seat cleaner gives washroom users the power to conduct their own sanitization measures right before getting down to business. Facility owners can install a small dispenser next to the toilet tissue dispenser. Users can then dispense the sanitizer solution directly onto toilet paper and wipe the seat down, effectively protecting themselves from cross-contamination. The great news? No additional waste! Moistened tissue can be discarded as normal into the toilet.
The other added benefit that comes from using either of these products is that you will not have to subject yourself to an impromptu leg workout as you attempt to hover over the seat!
Until next time, keep it clean!
