    frilly says: Thanks for replying I thought more ladies would have been keen to vent some feelings about this subject as most women dread using Public Toilets.
    I agree with you about the smell you cannot even guarantee that shopping Mall toilets will always been clean.
    I am disabled and the number of times I have gone in, people have been smoking, mothers have left filthy nappies on the floor. There has even been a special container but still left on the floor. How can women be so bad or so dirty to do this? It is fine they say let the management know but you have to go such a long distance generally to do so.
    Surely it is not too much to ask them to clean after themselves, they have to do it at home or do they live like this? There is certainly a question left in your mind about how the other half live?

    kali says: well i must say NEVER use a public toilet because they have graffiti all ova the doors and walls aswell as filthy with urine and feces still left in the toilet bowl or on the floors. The toilets also get used for sexual favors which is also disgusting, im sure u can germs and deseases by using these toilets im not saying every public toilet is like this but most of them are. There should be cleaners for these every day.

    frilly says: I agree with you totally but what happens when you just "have to go" are you then supposed to "go" in the street? I cannot expect people to allow me to go into their houses. Cafes don't always have a toilet, I am not as young as I was but even youngsters have their problems. I have a granddaughter that has to be always aware of where the toilets are she has a medical problem.
    Most of the Public Toilets in places such as "Stops on Main Highways" are cleaned every day.
    It is the disgusting WOMEN who use the toilets and leave them in this state NOT men. How can women do all those things? There are receptacles for dirty nappies etc and they leave them on the floor. It is really hard to understand. Complain it is the only weapon you have and just maybe they will be caught

    Blossom says: I don't whether it is state or federal law, but if you serve food you are obliged to have a public toilet within the cafe or in a shopping centre if that applies. Toilets at most service station/food outlets/cafes are cleaned regularly. If you find one that needs cleaning, advise the staff and they will clean it asap. A relative of mine reported one once and it was re-cleaned within 5 minutes. It was one particular toilet in a row of them.

    Blossom says: I always use my own toilet at the last minute when I am going shopping. But I catch the bus and usually visit several shops doing a lot of shopping in a few hours, so I usually get desperate enough to have to use public toilets, especiallly in the warm weather when I need to drink more water. In one way I am fortunate that the ones I use are in a large shopping mall and the cleaners continually go around checking and cleaning them. One more than one occasion I have had to go to another toilet area because where I went was being cleaned.

    frilly says: Hi Blossom I can go to the toilet just on leaving home and am driven to shopping centre usually find them in good condition like you they are cleaned very often. I was disgusted on one occasion.
    I filthy baby nappy had been left open on the floor. I am disabled so I have to use those toilet, I just could not believe it was left there when there was a special receptacle for them.
    I almost did the unforgivable and used paper to pick it up until hubby who has to comein with me made me see sense. I always laugh at the "disabled" toilet in my shopping mall, I cannot push the door open the spring is too strong. Then when I am in I cannot get out on my own as I am on an electric scooter & therefor sit too far to even reach the door handle.
    We have reported it and it was supposed to be changed in the renovations. Do not think the money reached that problem LOL.
    Cheers

    Blossom says: The majority if the shopping centres in SA have electric sliding doors on them. Several older ones were modified. I would complain to the Shopping Centre Management and if nothing happens, in some states there are organizations that are advocates for the disabled. Maybe there the is a Govt, Dept you could approach, or even contact your Member of Parlaiment, or the one for that area.. Some are very influential

    s says: If you visit the same shopping centres you get to know which have the cleanest toilets.
    I always do as you do go before I go out.
    I have always found also they are being cleaned every hour or so in Westfield shopping centres.
    Sometimes I have found they are cleaned by male cleaners in other centres and it does make you feel a bit uncomfortable.

    Blossom says: I agree with you re the heavy door. There is one automatic push button on and other like to have to use at the shopping centre I go too. I know I shouldn't use it, but I have a balance problem when it comes to getting up. Also it is impossible for me to get my pull-along trolley intop some public toilets as the cubicles are too small. Also I am epileptic which I am lucky is controlled by medication unless I get a cold or virus. Fortunately I haven't had one whilst out shopping as I lose consciousness for a couple of minutes - the floors are hard!!! I have injured myself a couple of times - worst was a broke my nose. Blood tests at hospital showed I had a cold or virus -- I wasn't aware of that - I just had a headache - luckily I was home. 99% of time it is always in the toilet too. Our door opens outwards for that reason.
