A Visit To A Public Loo Rather Unpleasant These Days In USA

The folks at LavatoryLab.com have been sniffing around public restrooms across the United States.

And what they’re smelling is not good.

In Wyoming, public restrooms get a 3.5 out of 10, and in California the public restrooms score 4.6 out of 10.

Biggest problem you might encounter?  No toilet paper.

Toilets that were not flushed by the previous user.

No soap or paper towels at the sink.

Trash cans that are full.

Bad smell in the restroom.

LavatoryLab.com says if you have to ‘go’ in public, head to Vermont where the public restrooms get a score of 8 out of 10.
