If you are like me, you hate using public restrooms anyway and try to avoid them at all costs.  Sometimes you just have to.  Sometimes there is just no way around it.  Mostly because you just never know what you will encounter when you walk into the place.  

I've been knocked over by some pretty rank bathrooms in my time.  Definitely not one of my most favorite activities.  We all hate going into these places because it's and gamble over the condition of the place and it takes us out the comfort zone that is our own bathroom.

According to wimp.com, most people believe that much of the bacteria in public bathrooms, reside on the toilet seat itself.  You would be surprised to find that it's just not true.  Engineers did a pretty good job in designing the toilet seat not just for comfort, but it's also designed with a smooth curved surface that somewhat prevents bacteria from hanging around.

So where are these germs hanging out?  You guessed it, right on the roll of toilet paper!  Yikes!  Actually they are hanging around on most surfaces other than the toilet set itself.  This is the main reason why I don't like using public restrooms at all.

Oh, and don't think that those electric dryers are doing any good either.  All they do is blow more germs around the place.
