Bribing kids with a baby chino, hot chocolate or mini milkshake is every mum’s go to when trying to catch up with friends at a café or wanting 30 minutes break whilst at the shopping centre. However, its implications lead to every germophobe mums worst nightmare – a trip to a public toilet!
Usually on cue 20 minutes post drink the demands start from your child wanting to go to the toilet and it’s downhill from here! Your relaxing shopping outing is about to be turned upside down!
You head for the nearest public toilet hoping it’s not as bad as the last time. If you are lucky you can use a parents toilet so that your pram, bags and child can all fit inside the cubicle with you. But that is just the beginning of your worries! In you go and this is where it gets interesting. While your child yells at you about desperately needing to go you start a process of sanitizing the dreaded public toilet seat whilst telling your child repeatedly not to touch anything and to wait while mummy cleans the seat.
An elaborate process begins of using hand sanitizer or baby wipes to clean the toilet seat. Then just as you’re feeling really frazzled and your child is still screaming at you that they are going to wet their pants you carefully try and pull out the longest length of toilet paper known to man so you can slowly and carefully line the seat in paper.
Operation complete. The public toilet seat is lined and ready for use. Your child squeals like a pig being slaughtered while you plead with them to be quiet in your best hushed mummy voice. As quickly as possible you help them out of their pants and lift them up to place them on the public toilet, trying not to throw your back out in the process. Well at least that was the plan until all the toilet paper lining the seat either falls into the toilet or onto the floor and bloody hell your back at stage one – but this time you have a naked yelling child to deal with and rising blood pressure. Hopefully they don’t pee on your back while you start the whole time consuming operation all over again!
Every mum can relate to this very common scenario and the feelings of stress and frustration that it causes. It was this very scenario as a mum that I would dread when going on an outing with my kids. So wanting to find a solution to this problem I created Tushon – the world’s first premium, individually wrapped toilet seat covers. No more time consuming lining of public toilet seats with toilet paper while my child screamed at me. Now I have a quick and convenient portable hygiene solution perfect to throw in my bag and I don’t have to stress about using public toilets with my kids! I hope you find Tushon as convenient for your family, as I do for mine.
I would love to hear about your own public toilet experiences.

Sit don’t squat!
Do you hover or squat over public toilets when peeing?
Many people have concerns about sitting on public toilets as they are worried about what germs may be left on the seat from other users. In 2013 MOJO Concepts did a survey of 655 Australian women and found that 50% hovered when using public toilets and 40% would only sit on a public toilet if it was covered with toilet paper or a toilet seat cover.
Road trips are back on the agenda for many people around Australia now that restrictions are easing and they provide an easy way to take a much needed break during what has been a challenging year.
