Many people use public restrooms every day. A given public restroom can be used by hundreds or even thousands of people in a single day in places with heavy foot traffic, such as restaurants, hospitals, and hotels. However, what is the most hygienic way to use public restrooms?
Nowadays, public toilet seats are specially designed to prevent germs from staying on them. Especially those that are made of non-porous plastic: these are the most germ-free surfaces since they are made with antimicrobial materials. Suffice to say, if cleaned properly, these seats can be cleaner than the dish sponges you use every day that collect a significant amount of bacteria.
Unfortunately, in the cabin where we are, we have no concrete proof, neither of its impeccable maintenance nor of its recent use. Prevention is therefore better than cure.
To be more peaceful in public toilets, the healthiest and healthiest solution is to avoid skin contact with the toilet seat. Quite simply. So yes, it is somewhat restrictive, but it will not last long and at least you will avoid all kinds of skin allergies which will cause you more problems. Finally, when you leave, don’t forget to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and lukewarm water.
