To Pick Cleanest Stall in Public Restroom

Nobody likes using a public toilet, but let’s face it, it’s pretty  darn near impossible to avoid. There's no doubt a lot of people, myself  included, who know the cleanest public restrooms to use in their  neighborhood, but it’s still really gross when you think about it. So,  when you are faced with the inevitable task of relieving yourself in a  public place, what is your best bet for choosing the cleanest cubicle?  Well, Dr. Oz thinks he has the answer.

The TV doc recently shared his thoughts during a Q&A on the  medical advice forum Share Care, and it seems the best choice is  probably the last one you think of. Apparently, Dr. Oz suggests always  using the first stall in a restroom because most people tend to skip  them for ones farther from the door for more privacy.

“Because the first stall is used least often, it contains the lowest  bacteria levels,” he notes. “Instead of skipping the first stall, choose  it to help avoid possible infections.”

  • But that answer may not always be true. Previous scientific research  suggests that may be the right plan of action if you’re going to go in  the ladies room, but for men it’s likely different, because men tend to  use the first stall more often. For this reason, men should probably opt  for the stall farthest from the door if they want the one that likely  contains the least amount of germs.
