How clean you are in using bathrooms?

I'm more particular with Public bathrooms. I usually don't sit on the bowl.I'm too afraid I might acquire a disease. Water is a must for me,I hate it when other people don't flush the bowl after using it. The smell of urine is too strong, its painful in the nose. At home, the places which we always maintain clean are the bathroom and kitchen. Viruses and bacteria are likely to hibernate on these places.

when i'm out in the public, i usually look for a mall or any place that has at least a clean toilet where there's somone who's assigned to clean. i always bring w/ me a wet tissue & a dry one. i hate ladies who sit like a frog inside the toilet. i do believe in this golden toilet rule: 'always sit like a queen but not like a frog' its a good example if you do practice this w/ yourself & the next one that will follow you will also learn & realize...

How do you "sit like a frog"? For some reason I can't create that mental image..

I don't use public restrooms often. I just use them if I can't really hold on to it. I think there are public restrooms that are clean, too but of course not most of the time especially in my country. Not to generalize, people throw their waste anywhere, their spit out anywhere, and they can do worst in public restrooms.Yeah, it's true bacteria and viruses hibernate in these place but there are also things that we use everyday where most bacteria hibernate. Telephone is one example, money too.

I hate using a public toilet. Especially on campus, I don't know if they are understaffed or what, but it is always disgusting in the bathrooms. Usually there are no papertowels either to dry my hands after I wash them. Granted janitorial staff can't clean the toilet after every use. So I wish people were a little more clean about using the public toilets. Every time I go into a public restroom at school, it seems like everybody forgot how to flush.

Have you ever heard the statistic that public COMPUTERS & DOORKNOBS have more germs than your average public toilet? Isn't that shocking and/or funny? I personally don't like public bathrooms either, something just grosses me out about them. Most of the time I "squat" over the toilet seat instead of sitting down on it because of my germ-o-phobia (if that's even a word). :/
