    I wipe the seat with toilet paper then place toilet paper on the seat before sitting. If I'm in a nice restaurant I might not bother putting paper down but I always wipe!

    I hate the wee drops you hoverers tend to leave on the seat!

    No way in hell I'm sitting on a public toilet. The amount of time I've seen wee poo and blood on toilet seats .... Gross

    In public I prefer to hover. I know it's bad for my bladder, but it's what mum taught us to do as kids so it's kinda stuck with me. I will always wipe the seat after if there are any droplets so it's clean for the next person. I hate when people don't clean up their mess. Wet floors, wee on the seat, unflushed toilets sanitary products/wrappers etc. I will always wash my hands then if required use hand gel or wet wipes to wash my hands once I'm outside. For all of you who don't wash your hands because you use hand gel etc, does that mean you're using your dirty hands to open the doors (not the stalls obviously)? Is that not adding to the problem of the door handles being grotty? I feel so grossed out when people don't wash their hands or just run them briefly under water. But I think that comes from working as a nurse and hand hygiene being a major part of the job.

    I do the hover/squat over the toilet and hold my girls over the toilet so they don't sit on it either. I'm also that weird one that opens & closes the doors with a wipe when I go into the rest room.

    I hover, wash hands with soap & water for 20 seconds, turn the tap off with paper towel, open door with paper towel then lob it in the bin as I'm leaving. If there's no paper towel I use elbows like a contortionist.

    Those that clean the seat with wipes before sitting down - that won't be doing anything except make the seat wet. Germs need to be in contact with soap or antibacterial wipes for at least 20 seconds before they start to die. A quick wipe does nothing.

    I do this to but to be honest it doesn't make it cleaner for the next person. Wiping pee from the seat with toilet paper still leaves germs behind. That's why I don't trust a 'clean' looking public seat. God knows what mess the previous person 'wiped away.'

    If people didn't hover.. the toilet seat wouldn't be covered in pee droplets!!!

    I only go to certain toilets and i line the seat with toilet paper, after i have mopped up other people's pee..

    Definitely hover. I couldn't sit or touch a public toilet seat.
