Ah the races! Just the mention of it brings so much joy and anticipation of what is an exciting day out drinking champagne, eating delicious food whilst being frocked up feeling fabulous and enjoying the social buzz of a festive crowd.
The most experienced race goer knows how important it is to eat throughout the day while the champagne flows freely.
Most of us are distracted for the first few hours of the day drinking and celebrating together whilst either taking a punt or people watching, but eventually we all have a moment of horrifying realization that what goes in must eventually come out!
Off we trot, usually in pairs, to the nearest port-a-loo. Even in the spectacular birdcage, where celebrities wander around from one marquee to the next you cannot escape the dreaded port-a-loo. An attempt to dress them up with carpeted floors doesn’t change the fact of what they really are.
So whether you are in the car park, trackside or birdcage we all discover, sooner or later, depending on how long it takes to break the seal, that the dreaded public toilet awaits.
If you can survive the long queue with your sense of humour intact what you will find inside will no doubt test you. Dirty toilets, wet floors and unimaginable smells welcome you. It is usually so bad it becomes a joke as you exit, where you warn the next person waiting in line how bad it is. They go in nervously cursing aloud!
Jokes aside be warned, now you have broken the seal you will be back there sooner than you think.
So how can you survive the dreaded public toilet port-a-loo this race season other than staying off the bubbles?

With the cooler months approaching and flu season knocking at your door there are some easy ways to help your family stay healthy this year.
Did you know the Influenza Virus can survive on a nonporous surface for 24-48 hours and Rhinovirus (the common cold) can survive up to 7 days? Noroviruses (the most common cause of gastroenteritis – hello diarrhoea and vomiting) can survive up to 12 days on surfaces such as carpets according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
So with that in mind what are the best ways to help prevent illness?
Do you have travel plans these holidays? Plan ahead and be prepared so that your holiday is stress free, healthy and super organised so you can enjoy your long anticipated trip.
We all know how easy it is to get sick when travelling. Public transport is riddled with lots of germs and viruses due to the high use of surfaces and limited hygiene opportunities for travellers. Surfaces used frequently by the public like seat belts, toilets, buttons and touch screens provide an easy opportunity for germs to be transferred. The last thing you want when trying to enjoy your trip is a family gastro outbreak or the flu.
