Clean Restrooms

Are you aware there is a website for finding clean restrooms worldwide. It is called The Bathroom Diaries.
You can google it by the name. Click on and just click the country you are interested in. I tried it for an area I knew in Zurich and it worked well.

The website for clean washrooms sounds interesting! I will check it out!
As a general rule of thumb, if I want a clean washroom while I am out on the street exploring, I'll visit a 3 star minimum hotel's washroom. The washrooms are almost always clean and conveniently located off the Main lobby.

I always like to quote our dear queen elizabeth of England in her famous quote"A lady never passes up an opportunity to pee". How true that is. Think about it. If you are caught short and despirate you pretty much have to go wherever you can. That could potentially drive you to some unsavoury places out of despiration!
If I'm stuck and have to ask to use a washroom at a little restaurant or variety store, I always buy something first to be polite.

if you walk confidently through a restaurant, bar or hotel lobby and look like you know what you are doing, you won't get hassled. and as much as I hate to admit it, any city with a McDonalds or Starbucks will have good bathrooms.

Thanks for this, I'll add it to my PDA. Always a problem when travelling. I have also do the hotel trick and have used the bathroom in some of the best hotels in the world. Walking through the lobby with confidence is the trick I find.
