Women and mothers with young children frequently use public toilet facilities during their visits to restaurants, shopping centres, cafes, parks, gyms, sporting fields, airports, hotels and on aircraft during travel. In fact 98% of Australian women need to use public toilets several times a week and most mothers use public toilets with their young children daily.
Many women and mothers worry about the germs that they and their families can catch when using public toilets and this causes them stress, frustration and wastes precious time.
It is not uncommon to hear a mother in the next cubicle pleading with their desperate child to wait and hold while mummy frantically covers the toilet seat with toilet tissue so that their child can sit on the toilet.
In 2010 Mojo Concepts undertook a survey of 655 Australian Women about public toilet hygiene.
70% of women feared catching germs from using public toilets.
40% of these women would only sit on a public toilet seat if they covered it with toilet tissue.

Travellers world wide are anxious about travel and health safety with the current threat of Coronavirus or COVID19, but with good hygiene products and practices, you can set off on your trip knowing that you have control over your hygiene and give yourself the best chance at staying healthy while travelling.
Most would agree that having to use a public toilet is something we have to do quite often, if not daily. Would we rather just go at home? Well obviously, but that’s not always possible.
When you do have to use one, you usually enter without thinking about how much you really hate to use them. Until of course you get a peek at the state of the toilets and all those bits of toilet paper lying on the floor, wet spots and dirty marks on the toilet seat.
