Being a germaphobe, I have to wash my hands before eating, especially in a restaurant where I had to touch the door handle to get inside. I am still amazed at how many restaurants, theaters, stores, etc. don’t understand bathroom germs.
Here’s my idea of the perfect public mens or ladies room. TOUCHLESS AFTER ENTERING. First, the door. It should always SWING OUT. This way, you touch the handle to open the door going in, but don’t have to touch the door to leave, after you’ve washed your hands. Just push the door open with your butt.
Toilets and urinals should all have motion sensors so you don’t have to touch a handle, or try to flush using your foot to move the handle. Sometimes using your foot isn’t that easy.
Sinks should be motion detected along with motion detected soap dispensers. I don’t trust air dryers – I’d rather use towelling although I know some people feel the opposite. Either way, the air dryer or the towelling dispenser should be motion detected.
With this, you’ve entered, done your thing, flushed, washed, dried and left without touching anything. Perfect.
Here’s a pet peeve. For restrooms that are already built with the door swinging in – where you have to touch the filthy door handle to leave, you want to use a piece of towelling (this is a problem when there are just air dryers). But so many stores don’t have a waste basked by the door where you can toss your “door opening towelling”. So I just wait till nobody is around, open the door and drop the towelling on the floor. I do this at a golf club that I play almost every week. For years, there is always several pieces of towelling inside the door but management just doesn’t catch on to what is happening. Still no basket.
Tell me your ideas on what the perfect restroom should be.
