    If the toilet is disgusting I will hover (or find another) but generally I sit.

    I don't understand hovering. It goes all over the place. Unfortunately due to ibs I have to use public toilets. I wipe down seat usually with antibacterial wipes. Check under rim of toilet seat...found watery blood under it one day and walked straight out.

    Yesterday I walked in after a mum and her daughter and there were droplets of urine that the mother just left. So gross

    I used to hover. Now I sit because I have a knee injury that makes hovering painful.

    I always hover unless I need to do a number two which I usually like to hold out for home. If I need to poop I line it with toilet paper.
    I am a great pee-er and can actually pee better than my exDH could haha so there's never any issues with it going all over the place lol.

    I use a piece of toilet paper like a glove to lift the seat, then I hover over the bowl so I've got a wider zone to work with . Afterwards I put the seat back down with using another piece of paper. No pee drops for the next person to worry about if they are 'sitters'.

    If I had to sit, I'd use one of the flushable seat covers (if available) or use a wet wipe to give the seat a once-over.

    I thought my old aunty was the only one who would hover. I agree the taps and the door handles are more of a worry. I carry anti bacterial gel and a face cloth from home most of the time, and always tissues when travelling. Marie.

    Depends what sort of public toilet it is... If its grotty ones in a playground somewhere and I'm busting then I'll squat without touching anything, if its a newly cleaned shopping centre toilet than I'm often not too worried and will sit lol. But the majority of the time I just squat/hover.
