I don’t know why I’m obsessed with this, but I am. I moved to Texas a few years ago and ever since then, I’ve noticed that very few public places here have toilet seat covers. Gross!!! I’m super yucked out by this and can’t get over it! I’ll put down a bunch of toilet paper before I even attempt it!
Anyone else share the same disgust?! [Definitely NOT bashing Texas… I love it here!!]
Happy Wednesday ;]

No, I never use toilet seat covers because they never fit on the toilet properly, and often fall in! I rarely see them these days, actually. Mostly at malls and stuff. I always line with a million sheets of paper, or just squat. I can’t believe some ladies are actually comfortable placing their bare skin on a seat that a billion other people’s bare butts, and all the stuff that ‘missed’ going into the toilet, touched.

I am totally paranoid about this. I never use the seat covers, but I always, always use toilet paper first. I actually remember my mom teaching me this when I was little. That, and using toilet paper or my foot to flush the toilet in public bathrooms, haha.

@veganglam- I think it’s completely disgusting as well!! The thought of who knows how many people’s butt juice (among other things) are on the toilet seats is just an entirely disgusting thought!!!
@jduck84- I’m the same way! If there isn’t a toilet seat cover, I definitely grab lots of toilet paper! And I never touch the handle… gross!!!

I’ve never used the toilet seat covers. I always just take a few pieces of TP and lay it down on both sides!

omg, butt juice! I just went to the restroom at work and now i’m wondering if i need to go hose off, haha!
At the very least, those stalls should have the liners to use as oil blotters – they work like a charm and don’t take off your makeup!

I’ve never used toilet seat covers. I always squat in a public restroom.

I squat, too. It’s more sanitary and good for strengthening your quads. 🙂

Ah, but it’s the squatter’s that leave butt juice and sprinkles.
If you sit on a toilet seat the only part that touches the seat is the back of your thighs. You probably get as much other-people-juice if you sit on a bus or subway wearing short shorts.

Ha ha! I’m with edgypeanuts. I’d be more freaked out to sit on public transport in shorts than a public restroom. At least the toilets get cleaned frequently!

I’ve heard that studies have shown that the seat is actually the cleanest part of a toilet. That doesn’t mean I’m not going to use a seat cover or toilet paper, but just wanted to put that out there.
@SuperKate – do you not use seat covers by choice or because they aren’t readily available in most bathrooms in the midwest? This was always something I noticed whenever I would visit my grandparents during the summer.

I see seat covers a lot round these parts. I dont use them though, I will eithe squat or put toilet paper down

At this point in my life, I rarely even bother to squat, much less use a cover. I’ve done a fair amount of globe trotting, and have had to use facilities so far below the standards of anything I’ve ever seen in the states that I am rather unconcerned now.
And I’m happy to report I’ve never contracted any kind of illness or problem that I could trace to a toilet.

If you go to the baby section at stores like Walmart and Target they have toilet seat covers for kids. They come in little carrying cases that you could shove in your purse for when you happen to be a in gross public bathroom.
Besides if you think that’s bad when I used to live in S. Korea they didn’t have toilet paper in the stalls you had to grab it from the dispenser in the front of the bathroom and some didn’t have those you had to bring it from home!!! Other places the toilet looked like a urinal laid sideways in the ground and you had to squat over that!!!!

i “hover” in public restrooms – unless i HAVE to sit down – then its 2 toilet covers OR half a roll of tp on the seat. and yes i use my foot to flush the handle! lol (i also dont touch doorhandles going out of the bathroom, and wash my hands coming IN.
