In a bathroom stall there are several thousands of germs.

Even when a bathroom is kept clean it always gets dirty again because of the people constantly using the bathroom.

One study found traces of 77,990 bacteria and viruses in public restrooms.

Researchers also found within one hour of cleaning and disinfecting, bathrooms became contaminated again with microbes and fecal bacteria.

A stall is a small partitioned area and a toilet in in a partition so it's called a bathroom or restroom stall.

The term restroom came from the fact that in early 1900s up-scale restaurants, theaters and performing facilities would often have comfortable chairs or sofas located within or in a room directly adjacent to the actual toilet and sink facilities.

The reason public toilet seats have a gap at the front is to allow women to wipe their perineal area after they use the toilet without contacting the seat.

Basically the gap in the toilet seats is there as required by code and is there to help people clean up better after using the toilet.

The capital city that has the most public toilets is Madison Wisconsin.

Madison, WI, is the US city with the most toilets per 100k.

The country with the highest density of public bathrooms is Iceland: 56 toilets per 100,000 population.

Wakefield is the UK city with the most restrooms per 100,000 people (35) and per 100km2 (130).
