It so happened that over the last few week, I've had prolonged discussions with different sets of friends, in person and in whataspp groups about the problems we women face with public toilets in India (even abroad, though not as much). This is not a topic much addressed however, of late the Indian government as well as UNICEF are creating a lot of awareness about the need of proper toilets and how important hygiene is.
However, a public place is a public place. Germs are bound to be present, even if the toilet seat is visibly clean. Door knobs, taps, handles - anything which has public access, will have germs. For me, this is a concern even when I am visiting someone else's home because everyone's cleanliness routine differs.
A doctor friend suggested buying small, empty sprat cans and filling them with dettol idea. Not a bad idea, except that dettol smells. Which means we will smell too. Right when I was quite into all this discussion, and we were looking for manageable solutions - this arrive from Pee Safe - Toilet Seat Sanitizer.

Indeed! The first thing I checked, to be honest, was it's price. Because if this product works, I'd want as many women as possible to use it. The 10 ml pocket spray is for Rs 36, 40 ml bottle is priced at Rs 99, 75 ml at Rs 150, and the wet wipes are fr Rs 60 per packet. Not bad, not bad at all. At least in urban India, women would be benefited, I believe.

So, how is this used and where all can it be used. To begin with, on toilet seats. The brand has the following claims about the product:
- It kills bacteria.
- No harsh chemicals used; it also smells good.
- It can be used on toilet seats, door knobs, handles, etc.
- It is travel friendly.
- It is quick to dry.
- It helps prevent UTI, diarrhoea, and gastroenteritis.
After using the products for two weeks, I must say, I am impressed. Public toilets which do smell foul many times, now smell wonderful the moment this is sprayed - on toilet seat, door knobs or taps/handles. To use it, shake the can - spray on the area - wait for 5 seconds - use! As simple as that!
PeeSafe would be particuarly useful when travelling, at work or practically everytime when not at home. Buy the products from SafetyKart.
