This bathroom survival kit is one of the best gifts for coworkers and best gifts for women because it isn’t easy for them to use filthy restrooms as it is for men. It can be a good gift for men, but we use the restroom standing up.
Where to buy a Public Toilet Survival Kit
Have you ever walked into a public restroom and cringed at the smell? Maybe it was a faint smell, but you knew it didn’t belong. That smell is a result of urine and feces particles accumulating throughout the restroom to create an unsanitary environment. According to Dr. Charles Gerba, Ph. D. and professor at the University of Arizona, “bathrooms are hotbeds of bacteria and viruses that occur in infected people’s waste.” If public restrooms are not sanitized and disinfected properly, the following viruses can be found:
Norovirus is commonly known as food poisoning or the stomach flu. Symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain can happen as quickly as 12 hours after contracting the virus.
Unfortunately, Norovirus doesn’t respond to antibiotics, but the virus should go away within two days if proper measures are taken. Dehydration is common with this virus as it drains the body of fluids. Drink water and sports drinks to re-hydrate and replenish lost electrolytes.
Salmonella is commonly contracted through undercooked meat, poultry, or eggs. Many foods become contaminated when they are prepared by people who don’t thoroughly wash their hands after using the bathroom. Contracting the virus can also occur through cross-contamination. If someone touches a contaminated surface and puts their fingers in their mouth, they could get Salmonella.
Symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain, fever, and headache can occur as quickly as 8 hours after getting the virus. Symptoms can last anywhere between 4 to 7 days. Fortunately, Salmonella can be treated with antibiotics, but is only prescribed in severe cases. Staying hydrated is key.
I usually stand on top of the toilet seat when I use public restrooms, so I probably wouldn’t use this public toilet survival kit… but you can.💩🤢
