In a public restroom does it make a difference in which stall you should use? Surprisingly the answer is yes. The center stall has more exposure to the floating droplets of water that are expelled during the flushing process. These droplets can carry germs, urine and feces which land on the toilet seat and handle. You can’t catch an STD from a toilet seat, but you can become ill by touching contaminated surfaces and then neglecting to wash your hands.
Practice safe hygiene by always washing your hands with soap and water after using the restroom. Use a paper towel when opening the restroom door . Your best bet on the safest stall – select the stall that is the farthest to the left or right, away from the center of the restroom.
