  • foot or paper then toss the paper into the potty as it flushes. I hover unless it's "serious", then I use A LOT of those paper thingies; you'd think I was trying to cover a continent b/c I leave them doubled over & place 4 on the seat, then 2 more hanging low off the front so my pants don't touch the front of the toilet. My girls are too young to hover yet, but I paper the toilet for them. My oldest has gotten to where she wants to do it all herself (which is fine w/ me; she's 6), but knows b4 her tushie hits that seat, I'm inspecting the "paper job". She also knows how to make sure her undies are tucked into her pants; I'd rather the back of her pants touched the public toilet, than her panties! Again, I drape the front of the toilet as well, but sometimes when they're wiggling around up there the paper gets bunchy or falls off. As for the automatic flushers, I love them & hate them. i love them b/c it SOMETIMES makes it a

  • Yep, my foot. And to anyone that says it's nasty, it's not. If you choose to use your hand that's fine. The only way it's nasty is if people don't wash their hands after using that bathroom. That's nasty! No matter how you flush you should be washing your hands. Nothing that a little soap and water can't handle.

  • I'll use my foot sometimes, or a wad ot toilet paper and then toss it in so it gets flushed too. I love the bathrooms at my local mall. Everything is automated. There are no doors to open, the toilets flush automatically, you do have to pump the soap, but the water is on a sensor, they have slick new dryers that actually get your hands dry, and again no doors to open to get out.

  • I'll use my foot but in more modern toilets, I'll push the button with a knuckle. My biggest issue is when after you wash your hands, there is no garbage by the door for you to open it with paper and then throw it out. You know most people don't wash their hands when alone in there...and I've seen a few just walk out when I was there! EW
