Toilet seats in public restrooms shouldn't be covered? We've been doing it wrong all this time! - Watch

While many might think that this is the practical thing to do, you couldn't be more off track.

New Delhi: Nature's call can't have a worse timing than when it hits outdoors, especially subjecting you to those horrible public restrooms.

You enter one because you're left with no other option, but, oh, the horror of making the decision to sit or squat, because you don't know how many people have been before you and who has spilled what and where!

Eek! Just the thought sends you reeling, doesn't it? The germs, bacteria and what not, simply waiting to latch on to you.

What's the first thing you do in this situation? Cover the toilet seat with sheets and sheets of toilet paper to form a sort of protective layer between your skin and the seat, right?

Wrong! While many might think that this is the practical thing to do, you couldn't be more off track.

In fact, you are literally inviting the germs to your body by doing this. You're probably better off not putting anything there.

It may sound strange, but it's the truth. Want to know why? Check out the video below!
