I would like to ask the public and more so ladies if you would feel better to see flushable toilet seat covers in hospital toilets , with the bugs and bacteria we are so scared of . At a cost of a penny a sheet can we afford to have them , if America can have them in all there loo's are we missing something ?, a good place to visit .

Its always a good idea to have anti-bacterial wipes in your handbag, most ladies will tell you that Steven.

I keep them to wipe over most articles that carry bacteria, including the telephone handsets and office equipment that people generally don't give a second thought to.

I would recommend everyone carries anti-bacterial wipes with them, you don't have to be obsessive about wiping and cleaning things, but just use a bit of common sense, toilet seats are just one of the many places you will find bacteria.

After hearing that women mostly hover over toilets and not release urine properly due to bladder muscles not relaxing , this leading to Cystitis and Uti's .
Also an experiment i read about using food dye in the bottom of a toilet and placing cling film over the bowl , you get to see the water particles from the bottom of toilet flying everywhere , as a man its put me off sitting on the seat , wipes are good but no handbag with me normally, but as a developed country why is a dispenser with a paper seat cover out of the question? , they dissolve with no impact to the sewage system , it has to be a culture thing . Do wipes break down ? What chemicals are in the wipes and are they adding to the the pollution , maybe a small thing one person wipes in the loo , but how many do you think are flushed in to the pipes? .
One place you might find bacteria is on the toilet seat and yes many other places, but if they were in your local restaurant would you use them ? and one less place to share a naked seat is good for me ! .
