Survive the Public Toilets


This is Mr Eggs is British Shorthair cat that lives with his partner in crime Sir Pumpkin, another British Shorthair cat with their owner...and yes, Mr Eggs is one of the popular Instagram cats around as well with over 66 k followers... puts me to shame... huhuhu 

Why I am sharing Mr Eggs picture here is because Mr Eggs likes to lounge on the toilet seat... and well.. my story today is about toilets... hehehe .. and I really doubt Mr Eggs would like to lounge or sit on any of our public toilet seats now would he... 

Do you know that three out of five Malaysians are very unwilling to use public toilets, citing common reasons such as wet, dirty floors or toilet seats, clogged or unflushed toilets, and lack of water or clean water and toilet paper. 










However, having traveled around the world, a bit, I must say our public toilets are still not that bad... I have seen stinkier ones and horrifying ones.. and I do not mean the haunted ones...

According to celebrity Jihan Muse, surviving a public toilet can be quite an epic tragic comedy 

“Proper maintenance aside, I feel public toilets in Malaysia would be much better if we could treat them the way we treat our own personal space. So if you make a mess, clean it up; don’t step on the seats; wipe up any spills and for the love of all things decent, do flush properly!” says Jihan.


My daughter can be pretty fastidious when it comes to going to a dirty toilet too... so I equipped her with some gloves , a face mask and a packet of Kleenex® Wet Toilet Tissues and she was all set...


Sadly most of the public toilets you go in to has some stench as people tend to let their kids pee just about anywhere, and leave it as it is and the toilet maintenance (if any) probably cleans it only once or twice a day...

So the toilet seat can be a breeding ground for germs and bacteria such as E.coli, a fecal-borne bacteria, and you could be struck down with diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramping and vomiting.

Shigella infections, can also happen when an infected person's feaces contaminates the toilet handles and toilet seats. It causes infections, severe diarrhea, abdominal cramping and other gastrointestinal distress that may last for about a week )

Influenza and certain other viruses can live for two or three days on toilet seats - and some even longer. Bird flu, can live for weeks, just waiting for you to have a seat. You might also catch a cold from the toilet seat, but rhinovirus usually survives less than a day on hard surfaces. 

So you see the importance of cleaning the toilet seat, before seating on it, as well as washing your hands properly after you have done your toilet business....

Kleenex®, a world leader in personal hygiene products, has introduced a simple solution that can be used conveniently anytime, anywhere – Kleenex® Wet Toilet Tissues to give us all a more positive public toilet experience and a better standard of intimate cleaning amongst people in Malaysia... and when I first saw it on the shelves at the supermarket, I knew I just had to get some to stock up on it...

Won't you agree with me....
