Hello Everyone,
As a follow up on the previous post to this topic, Public toilets indeed are perceived to be unsafe and pose a very serious health risk but we still can’t dispute the fact that they are relevant and much needed in different areas we go to outside home.

Now while this post is exclusively on Public Toilets, I want us to take a back check on our private toilets. We are quick to blame public toilets for genital irritations and diseases but do you wash your toilet often and do you provide effective cleaning materials for quick cleaning after visitors and friends use the toilet. You are not calling out anyone but no one is 100% certain of the hygiene and health gauge of an individual, you can only speak for yourself.
More often than not, we pick irritations from the unlikeliest of places for example is a very close friend’s house and this teaches us never to underestimate prioritizing frequent and effective toilet cleaning.

Public toilets solve needs and appear to be unsafe and they most times trouble our Heath concern especially in overpopulated and busy cities, however you can manage situations and reduce the anxiety or health risk you fear.
I would like to tell you a lot about managing your meals and water in-take to reduce your chances of needing a public toilet once you step out, but I have been in situations were I had nothing to eat and had barely 2 glasses of water and I needed so badly to use the toilet. Apparently I felt this way due to meals from precious days.
Now does that mean you can’t eat and drink what you want and when you feel like it, ofcourse not, although managing food and water intake can help a lot, don’t be too naive to neglect nature’s call.

In my own view, managing the use of Public toilet is first of all;

1. Accepting whether or not you need to use that toilet. Please believe me you will not die if you don’t, but if you must please do use one to avoid embarrassments.

2. Avoid using toilets with broken water system, they more often than not have not had proper flushing and cleaning.

3. Always move around with your own toilet paper. Sometimes the operators may have ran out of toilet paper, and when entering and exiting the toilet, it is advisable to use a toilet paper for the doors, covered seat, water system and personal use.

4. Never forget to wash your hands with soap and water, that doesn’t only kill germs but provides you with a sense of safety and security.

5. Use public toilets that have staffs, janitors, operators, or cleaning staff lurking around or strategically positioned in the toilet area. For a surety, they have cleaning routines and can provide you with extra cleaning if required.

6. Expect the worst, so you may find out that everywhere stinks and looks dirty as well as crowed with everyone waiting to use the toilet, just as stated in point 1, be sure you need to use the toilet, and if you must, look for one toilet that has a functional water system.
No one will want to leave the toilet dirty especially when there is a water system that Works and a lot of people are outside to call you out on bad behavior, but then if there isn’t a functional water system, it’s just gonna be dirt piling up on dirt.

These and many more are actions we can carry out in our everyday need and use of public toilets.
I don’t know what you call them, but I call them Unsafe and Super-Saver, for a few readers it’s Safe and Super-saver while for some it’s Unsafe and Horrific, lol…Let’s not argue about what the status is, because it serves the public we already can understand why it won’t be the standard we want. It can be better for those who have it bad but manage your needs here like every other thing in life.
With the right steps you will navigate through but per adventure you pick up diseases and irritations, don’t wait one more night, head straight to the doctor.

Beauty and Health is Strength and Strength Again.
