    Default Do you or don't you sit on a public toilet seat?

    lol, weird topic but it came into conversation the other day with a group of friends.... seems some do sit on a public toilet seat whilst others squat (hover over it.. that's what I mean) as it feels dirty and who knows who used it etc.... so what do you do?

    I try to hover but sometimes I'm just too busting to go that my depth perception flies out the window and my bum touches the seat then I go "what the hell, I'm here now". That and if I dare rearrange myself I might wee all over my pants.

    I hover, or if I really want to sit I'll place sheets of toilet paper down on the seat.

    Im probably in the minority here but I sit. I try to make sure I dont need to go when out but ya know when nature calls...I would never use a filthy toilet and I know there are plenty of hidden germs but yeah too hard for me to hover :/

    That's why I'm not fussed washing my hands at public toilets. hand sanitiser or baby wipes are great for this.

    Yes! Taps and door handles! Amazing how many people wash their hands then turn the tap off with their hand, picking up all those germs again!
    I also avoid the hot air dryers- apparently bacteria builds up in those machines and blows all over your hands. If there's no paper towel i use toilet paper to dry or leave them wet.

    Taps and handles are so gross! I love the way some of the newer public toilets are designed where there is no door to enter/exit.

    I always sanitise after washing my hands in a public toilet because of the taps!
