How do you use public bathrooms?

Not at all, wrap the toilet like a mummy with tp, squat/hover in a weird way to not touch it?

I personally refuse to use public toilets  but if I have to, then I wrap it and hover over it lol. I cringe when dd1 has to go. I'm just the super germaphobe mom. They say it doesn't really matter if you use them as long as you don't have any open wounds, but still it's just ewwww to me.

IF there's a toilet liner I use like 3 lol, otherwise I hover over!
I have boys so they can stand and pee :-)
We always make a point to go to the potty before leaving the house but it never fails 20 minutes later my ds has to go again.

I refuse to go....I have peed in a cup in the back of my Excursion before. (Yes I am that crazy lol)

I HATE HATE public restrooms.

I squat over it, then flush with my foot. After washing my hands, I open the exit door with my paper towel, then hold it open with my foot while I toss the paper towel in the trash, lol. I'm lucky to have boys, because when my 4 yr old needs to go, we don't really need to touch anything besides the flusher with my foot, and the door handle

I just wipe it down first. I'm not too worried about it. I pick DS up when he has to go because public toilets tend to be a bit tall, even in family restrooms (weird). I do use a paper towel to turn off the water and open the door since I've just cleaned my hands.

I carry wipes in my purse and just wipe the seat down before I use it.
