Yes, I know it is hard to believe that public washrooms can be great too. I’ve always had no so pleasant experiences and always used to avoid using them. But at times it is difficult to avoid the nature’s call and you have to go because you have to pee. Thankfully we have Peesafe for our rescue now. It is an amazing toilet seat sanitizer spray that starts sanitizing the toilet seat within 5 seconds of spraying. A public washroom is a germ infested place and a home to a lot of disease-causing bacteria. Washrooms especially public washrooms can be gross at times with the toilet seat, flush handle, tap, and the floor being the dirtiest and most infected places. It is always better to take all the necessary steps and precautions to avoid getting infected by these nasty organisms. Toilet seat sanitizers like PeeSafe are now available for our rescue as they help in sanitizing the toilet seat and making it germ-free and safe for use. PeeSafe is surely a wonder product as it helps remove germs and starts sanitizing the toilet seat in 5 seconds. The PeeSafe bottle is compact and handy and is available in 3 sizes 10ml, 40ml &75ml.

This public washroom in Switzerland is one of its kind.

With a height of more than five meters tall and with an a la mode gold punctured metal exterior, this in public washroom remains at the focal point of a recently finished and pedestrianized range of Wembley, North London.
