I don’t know about you, but I despise using public washrooms. Some are definitely worse than others, but even when they look relatively clean I am pretty sure that they are not. I especially hate that after I have thoroughly washed my hands I then have to grab the bathroom door handle to get out. It makes me cringe thinking about all of the non-hand-washers who have touched it, leaving behind who knows what.
There are times when I remember to take a piece of paper towel to grab the handle with. Other times I resort to pulling my sleeve down over my hand. It would be nice if there was an easier way though. Well, apparently someone else has been giving a lot of thought to this issue.
The Toepener is a handle that fastens to the bottom of a door and allows people to open the door with their feet. What a great and simple solution! I hope that these catch on quickly and we see them in public restrooms all over very soon.
