Does the thought of germs in public restrooms and portable toilets make you cringe? You probably spend as little time as possible in public toilets. On the occasion that you have to go, you are probable found flushing with your foot, avoiding contact with the toilet seat and carefully using a paper towel to open doors. For many, anxiety over coming into contact with bathroom bugs is a genuine concern.
It is no secret that there is a huge cocktail of germs lurking on the surfaces in public restrooms. The most common germs that are found are streptococcus, staphylococcus, E. coli, hepatitis A and various STDs. Sounds scary, right. The good news is that the toilet seat is not a common area of transmitting infectious diseases to humans. Many disease causing organisms are only able to survive a short time on the surface and due to your body’s incredible immune system and protective barrier, the chance of acquiring a disease from contact with the surface is very unlikely.
To assist in preventing the spread of germs, hand washing after using the potty is paramount. We all know that washing your hand after using a portable restroom is not always possible.
