Dirty public toilets are disgusting

76 comments  Add a comment

It's something I really detest and there is absolutely no need for it.  Everyone on the planet must have used a public toilet at some point in their life.  Why is it some people though, feel the need to urinate (have a pee) all over the toilet seat?  I guess I'm very specifically talking about men here because I would imagine that women would find it quite difficult to make that mess since they don't pee standing up.  Correct me if I'm wrong though, it's just I don't spend time in the ladies toilet these days.

I've been to all manner of different public toilets from motorway service stations and train stations to pubs and nightclubs.  You can be pretty certain that half of them will have a cubicle containing a yellow stained dripping bum seat at some point.  Absolutely disgusting, and from experience I'd say the pubs and clubs have the worst, especially the closer you get to closing time.  Some men (ok, some women too!) after a few beers just plain loose the ability to pee straight.  The floor usually gets this treatment as well so you end up standing in a stinking puddle too scared to move or touch anything.

Another disgusting toilet, please learn to pee IN the toilet, not on it! ... send them back to potty training school!

Some public conveniences have sanitary wipes or tissue seat covers.  Very good idea in my opinion, although sometimes it's so bad it might be a lost cause.  How many of you have carefully placed a neat ring of tissue around the seat before lowering your derriere?  It's no wonder that people hover above the seat or place lot's of loo roll around it so they don't have to touch it.

Bottom line, peeing on a public toilet seat should be made a criminal offence and a fitting punishment for these chaps would be to send them back to potty training school!

Kenny, After you looked at your site I'm sure you have come to the conclusion there's nothing wrong with it. The two very long posts are very odd indeed and one can only thank our lucky stars that " There but for the grace of fate go you or I".

Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought Michigan USA was five hours behind Uk time, not seven hours nineteen minuets. Perhaps this site has the time stamps screwed up. Any thoughts on this Kenny?

I Jason Sandifer, I prefer only single use restrooms, because I prefer my privacy.

I simply prefer to be in a restroom alone, and thus I try to use, or utilize single use restrooms.

I have actually very recently observed while being seated at my table eating my food, a woman, female employee of a fast food restaurant, go into the mens room, because some-else was cleaning the woman's bathroom. I also have observed a male employee go into the woman restroom, when the mens room was occupied. (I have NEVER done this myself)

I also observed a man become Very startled because he he walked toward the mens restrooms to use it, and a female employee walked out of the mens restroom, and he looked completely terrified, and he then immediately left the premises of the restaurant.

(Again this is just another reason for Everyone to be Very Very Careful, and Cautious)

Also, in this same fast food restaurant, I also saw a man enter a woman restroom, I am not sure if he was aware that it was a woman restroom, both were thankfully single use restrooms.

I have been trained and certified professionally while working in my career capacity. I was repeatedly, and many times, and certified in the PPE training, and or similar training, with the consistent practices of protection against harmful germs, bacteria, viruses, and disease, and bodily infectious bio-hazards etc.

(I DO NOT have germaphobia), however, I am Highly aware that the practices can increase a Person’s Personal Protection, as well as providing protection towards others against such harmful forms of commutable disease etc, again as stated I have been certified in the PPE training, and or similar training, with the consistent practices of protection against harmful germs, bacteria, viruses, and disease, and bodily infectious bio-hazards etc.

I have noticed when I go to restrooms, or even men’s showering areas, the that some person may come in usually now with a phone and it’s on, and may have the possibility to be recording others, there is absolutely no reason to record someone in a private restroom, or shower bathroom.

I Do Not have these LIVE apps, that know of nor have used them on my phone.

With the live apps on phone you don’t know what may be going on, therefore, I am apprehensive, about utilizing a multiple use rest room, especially when people have their camera phones on.

I certainly have done nothing wrong and should not be any reason to record a man or woman using the restroom.

I as I have expressed, and written on many occasions, I do not like to use multi-use restrooms for privacy, and peace of mind.

However, I do not like very unsanitary conditions with various preexisting bio-hazards, in a restroom before utilizing it.

Again, just some of the reasons I (HIGHLY dislike) Public Bathrooms/ Restrooms.

Went to a station bathroom, were there was No soap, and No bathroom paper, other than a very small amount of Rerolled toilet paper, and the restroom was filthy.

And the toilet seat was a (Absolute Yucky Filthy Mess).

I Do Not like Public restrooms, and I really NEVER Have.

I would NOT use Public Restrooms unless, I found to be Absolutely necessary.

And on another day, there was already a Large clump unknown Glob white Mucus, on the toilet rim as I have found several times in other bathrooms I have found and seen some of the most disgusting things in the public bathroom, and or restrooms, and occasionally even in household bathrooms as well.

I have seen (Vomit on seats, and floor), (Feces, on walls), (Feces on bathroom door handles), floor, (Feces on toilet handles) and even (Feces on the ceiling).

I don't know how anyone could manage to do that and leave it there.

Urine on toilet seats, and handles I have seen other biohazard pathogens,

(like bloody Unknown matter inside of sinks,

(Heavy Amounts of Various kinds of Hairs), (Hairs in many sinks and in, and around toilets, and also

(IN Showers also yuck)

Gooey Globs of unknown Yucky stuff on toilet seats.

I couldn't leave such a mess for others after I use the restroom.

Therefore, if any person takes certain precautionary measures to avoid any hazardous microorganisms, (germs) etc.

If a person a criticized for making simple attempts to practice certain safeguards against the spread of infection, disease, germs, viruses, bad bacteria, dirt, bio-hazards, and hazardous bodily fluid pathogens and other microorganisms, and or other potential contagious forms of commutable diseases, which cause illnesses and sicknesses.

Then if the person is further criticized, or for the practices of disease prevention, and Safeguards against the spread of infectious various contagions.

Then (there may be another (problematic issue of Criticism) which may be taking place. (Scapegoating)

The Practices may include washing of the hands, cleaning, and or wiping bloodborne pathogens, infected surfaces, or filthy surface areas, either before, and or after use.

Such as: Sanitizing of the hands, and or other filthy surfaces. The cleaning to reduce the potential and spread of infections forms of disease, and microorganisms’ germs, bad bacteria, feces, urine, fecal matter.

Currently where I reside, or have resided, (I am not the only person which has practiced cleaning), including the owners, or renters, tenants etc. of the home, or residences, in which I have currently, or previously been residing, he, or she has also cleaned, and sanitized his kitchen, and bathrooms, and places of the residences several times.

There are many people throughout this entire country, and elsewhere in the world who practice precautionary respective sanitary prevention of the spread of infectious diseases, and bio-hazards.

by wiping off the PRE-EXISTING GOOK, or GOOEY, GOOKY, YUCKY, STICKY, UNKNOWN STUFF, in or on the restroom toilet seat, and floor, on handles.

I personally clean behind myself, unless there is something else present to be cleaned, including any preexisting /bio-hazards pathogenic conditions etc., and it has to be clean also therefore, it is clean and sanitary for the next person respectively.

There are people all over this country, and world which practice precautionary sanitary prevention, and safeguards against the spread of infectious diseases, and bio-hazards.

I would always steer well clear of these places, although I realise for some they are a neccessity. I have my own reasons of course. They are - can't stand the vile garaffitti - and there are always those nasty machines dispensing prophylactcs. Your reasons may be different - have you ever used the toilets and and found them of below-par? your views will be uploaded to a website for this sort of thing.

I have used many under par toilets and you should see the owners face when you tell them . I've sat in many loos and witnessed first hand. It's shocking.

Out for the day recently I was obliged to visit the gent's public water-closet. With a sense of trepidation I entered the gloomy sanctum and was immediately confronted with obscene graffiti - a shiny machine dispensing lurid prophylactics dominated another wall. Further in was the line of cubicles, and I imagined the furtive whisper of limp-wristed fellows engaged in romantic liaisons, their bushy moustaches bristling like the fletching upon arrows.
With a Bang and a gurgle, a cistern voids, and a respectable tax-payer emerges from a purge-kiosk, and to my horror he empties a syringe into a bulging, pulsating vessel in his forearm. I was by now almost swooning with disgust until I suddenly realised my mistake - the gentleman was a diabetic and was administering a 'hit' of the peptide hormone insulin. I sheepishly explained my faux pas, and luckily the gentleman saw the funny side of my error, and we both threw back our heads and roared with mirth, while slapping our thighs.
It just goes to prove how easy it can be to gain a false impression!

I hate public toilets! not just because theyr`e putrid & revolting in this country, but why the h*ll are they designed like they are. I mean the cubicles are so small you`d think that they were made for dwarves, have you ever used one in a supermarket with all you bags with you?, then there`s the gap a the bottom, & if I`m using one next to a mother with a toddler, I can virtually guarantee that if I look down, I`ll see the kid has shoved it`s head under the partition & is looking up at me. They should totally change the design of these places so that even if they aren`t clean, at least we can have some privacy.

not that desperate

not that desperate

I have never and never will be desperate enough to use a public toilet, I would have to be crying and severely desperate to even consider it!
Only ever stepped foot in one once and some vile disgusting creature stepped out, head held high even though she had just left a disgusting mess followed by a disgusting smell behind her!! needless to say i simply washed my hands and walked straight back out.
It is little wonder so many people contract OCD these days!

omfg you should see the ladies toiliets as Surbiton station, Surrey, Uk. Broken toilet seat, broken lock, cobwebs and a build up of dust that must be at least several years old. And now for the piece de res, splattered menstrual blood all up the wall of cubicle one. This was not fresh blood, it was days old, if not weeks and months old. This is a public facility for goodness sake. Why can't the jobsworth a holes who work there take a bit of pride and get some goddamn hot soapy water out to clean that place?! Broken bits and bobs is one thing, but accumulated dirt and dust is another. Sickening. I have written to the train operator and my local council and Natiional Raill about this. I exepect zilch back.

Hygiene is not present in these toilets. Toilet rolls either on the floor or on top of dirty sanitary bins. Floors wet through.Unisex the latest cheap option. We are going backwards not forwards, we are treated like animals now. The pay 20p automatic loos' are scary, what happens if the lock is faulty? I wouldn't trust them as my husband got stuck in one, luckily he pushed 20p under the door so that I could open the door. What if he'd been on his own?

public toilets are the worst but i agree that the toilet seat is the last of your worries - its definitely the toilet door handle that you should fear! I spend ages trying to devise a way to get out without touching it. I either A) wait for someone to come though the door; B) open it with a paper towel; C) open it with one finger or D) open it with my sleeve! For years I kept thinking someone should invent something to solve this problem and then last week a friend told me that the miracle has happened - there's now a toilet door handle that cleans your hands (www.hygienehandle.co.uk) - yes you have read this correctly - its from a company called pure hold (lovin the name) and it looks like it might actually work. If not then I'm going to invent it myself!
