Had you been to some public toilets? How was your experience? What was the worst public toliet you had been to ? How was it inside? Some people tend not to go to public toilets ,but sometimes we have no choice when something happen all out of sudden.. Few weeks ago, I had been to a toilet in a karaoke box which i think i will never go there again. The toilet was so dirty and stink, i saw alot of toilet roll scattered on the ground, and even worse , there were some female sanitary napkins in the rubblish bin which is so disguesting. I am wondering how often do the staff clean the toilet..I am afraid they clean it less than once per month...

Yikes! I'll be sure to be careful if I ever visit. I think most restaurants here at home are very careful about keeping the public washrooms clean. I work in the food industry and toilets in supermarkets are cleaned by cleaning staff every single night. When I talk to the cleaning staff they say almost without fail, that women make more of a mess in a toilet than women do. I must say, that I was surprised at that.

Men's toilets are reasonably cleaner without all the pads and tissues. Lol.. But I agree with the statement that if you want a cleaner toilet, you have to pay for it. Actually, from where I come from (Malaysia), the public toilets are disgusting too. Probably partly due to public mentality. So the government decided to have a 'toilet revolution' to change the public mentality and attitude towards public toilets. And it kinda worked. For one, you have to pay higher prices to go to a clean, 5-star toilet. Yeap, believe it when I say they're not like toilets at all. You could almost sleep in there. Lolx

yes.country have many public toilet.they are well and clean for visitor to come in.Our country always take care of the public toilet to avoid bad comments about Malaysia hygiene.If you want to come to Malaysia, you will need to pay 20 cents for it.But for convenience toilet, you will pay around RM3 to RM4 just to enter the toilet. Believe me, if you enter it, they are not like toilet...lol.

The worst times I've used the toilet was when I was on aboat. Once I was on a casion cruise and got see sick. I went to the bathroom and the guy in the stall next to me was sick as well. The I was on another boat and I got sick again. So I was sitting on the toilet and all the water is mocing and splashin up and hitting me. I just wanted to sit there and not move but the wind and waves were out in full force that day.

The cleaniness of Public toilets are unpredictable, some are as clean as your home toilet, while some are so dirty that you just want to do your business (can't find any other toilet around and you just have to do it and can't hold it any more) and get out and hold your breath thru out the whole process. The cleaniness of the toilet is depending on the users to help keeping it clean and be considerable, clean up your mess before leaving, but most people will just leave the mess since there is no ownership to do it right... Sad..

well in india too public toilets arent of very good conditions, not because of the government or the general authorities takingits care./... but more because of people using it... it is very important for one to understand that no matter it is still a toilet, but then too it is their property, their country's representation...nad most of all it needs to be tidy coz of health and sanitation issues..... wish someday people woucld understand this and could hae the comfort of a stinkless toilet....

may be there are simply not enough toilets for the huge population in India.. And it is important to teach people about the health and sanitary issues .

whenever i go for toilets which is made by Municipal Corporation of India (MCD)at serveral places (which is free of cost) are worst. but my opinion is one must be civilized oneself then we can see better improvement.

Public toilets in the roads and railway stations are dirty.But toilets in sight seeing places are resonably good. I had been to germany few years back.Few ladies came to the toilet, one put some money and her friend was holding the door that is not completely closing it.They all went just without paying!cheating is there everywhere! In Moscow the metro system is the best with golden pillers and toilets are the worst!

agh thats so gross! my turn! lol. Well i travel a good deal during the summer which means i use a deal of rest area restrooms. oh they are horrible, a large majority of them anyway. i cant tell you where the worst have been, because its not like i mark down all the worst. well ive been to some where people cant figure out where the proper place in the stall is to go! i mean theres piss like on the seats and once, this was gross, there was a piece of poo on the floor. not even near the darned toilet! it was disgusting! theres places where toilets are clogged, for who knows how long and places where its like no one cleaned to place since the opening of the place way back in the 1800s! its ridiculas! arent taxes supposed to pay for clean facilities and rest areas? it drives me nuts. and even at schools i noticed they can sometimes get dirty. but thats the students faults. why? because no one taught them how to flush. but thats for another time. all im saying is that public places need cleaned up, so my trips arent ruined by filth and so i dont have to hold it in for 2 more hours because i dont want to sit my bum on a dirty stool.

I don't really mind going into public toilets. Yes I have some bad experiences but all you have to learn really is how to hold your breath until you are done doing what you came to the toilet for. I guess, being male makes a lot of difference. Because we don't need to make contact with any part of the toilet fixtures.

One of the embarrasing moment of my life happened when we went to my co-employees wedding on the evening after our office hours. Gush!!!how could i ever forget it,i went to the comfort room and found out with no light at all but i continue because i'm about to urinate then, im wearing a dark blue slacks, inspite of it was so dark i manage myself but one thing i never notice is that the floor was wet with some water/urine on it, when i got out from the toilet i found out the tip of my pants was wet with those water/urine...it was so disgusting but i manage as if nothing happen for it cannot be idealy seen.But sad to say on our way home on the vehicle, were on a closed fully aircon kia van,it smells terribly awful...:D so i have no choice than to tell to my co-employees the truth...though embrassing but i still have to tell them....we opened the kia to let the fresh air comes along..so embarrasing but ive learned from it, so everytime i went to a comfort room/public comfort room i used to pull up my pants to prevent it from happening again.:D

Oh agreed, they were utterly vile. I discovered a trick - everyone was too damn lazy to walk very far, so the further away from the entrance to the toilet area you got, the cleaner they were. By the third day I just headed towards the back corner and they were still relatively useable. I still think I used about 5 times as much of that cleaning gel as I was meant to every time though!

Public toilets in the malls are definitely clean and suitable for use. The ones which we can find at the conference halls are also well maintained. Most of other public toilets are horrible, they have found ways to improve the system by hiring a maintenance group which will charge us some fee for its use. However, I have noticed that the public toilets in gasoline stations have improved, too.

It used to be that thirld world countries held the reputation of having the worst public toilet hygeine among nations. But now, there is increased public awareness of health hazards from dirty toilets as well as increased tourism to these countries helped make government conscious of the state of the public toilets. Nowadays, you can go to a third world country and find that the public toilets are pretty decent and clean, especially in malls. On a recent trip to the US, i was appalled by the state of a public restroom i had to use. At least i can say that 3rd world countries dont hold the monopoly of having dirty public toilets.

it's very uncomfortable using public toilets. it's very dirty and stinks but you have no choice if the nature calls for it. i'd rather go to fastfood chain with washroom.

You aint seen nuthin till you see some of the loos I've used in Africa. haha A hole in the ground is luxury and the atmosphere you can cut with a knife! I think the reason woman's loos are dirty is that a lot of women don't like to touch the pan (don't blame them) so they squat over it and take as good as aim as they can. As aiming is more difficult for a woman than a man (although some men are hopeless) there can be more wee atound the pan than in it! Oh yes, and they don't raise the seat when they do it either! haha
