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.
