When you’re on the road or on the go, shouldn’t it be easier to find a clean public restroom to do your business in? Well to simplify the task, the beloved Charmin Bears are acting as a guide.
There’s a new website called SitOrSquat.com that helps travelers find clean public restrooms. The site, hosted by Charmin’s owner, Procter and Gamble, is an interactive web page and mobile application that depends on public feedback to identify where clean, comfortable restrooms are. Originally based off of a smaller, personal blog, SitOrSquat.com may just change the way that you, well, go.
According to the official About Us page, SitOrSquat.com is a site that is “dedicated to telling you where the closest place to relieve yourself is and whether or not that place is worth even sitting or squatting (or standing) at. We all find ourselves needing a public restroom every once in a while, whether it’s walking down a city block or driving on a highway with a few whining kids in the backseat.”
The site can be personalized for each member based on their needs and preferences in bathroom usage based on several criteria. A member is also able to create a list of their favorite toilets as well as share them with their friends, so that going to the bathroom moves beyond a private matter and now becomes an interesting topic for discussion. As time goes by and more data is recorded, the site will continue to get more accurate in ratings as well as more options in places to go – an essential for the busy traveler or picky public bathroom user.
Do your hiney a favor and add it to your mobile phone or bookmark it as a favorite website. Trust us – it’s worth it.
