Potty Pax Keeps Strange Fecal Matter with You All Day

Although Potty Pax presents itself as a solution to the problem of dirty public restrooms, this product seems to come with problems of its own:

First of all, if you ever open up a bathroom stall and see this…

…you don’t need Potty Pax; you need to lay off the LSD!

After showing us that collection of giant, multi-colored floating bacteria, we get to see the grossest looking toilet since the Lid Lift commercial:

Clearly some artist has been practicing her finger painting skills on that bowl, though it is unclear if feces or chocolate pudding was used as the artistic medium.

I find it hard to believe that a toilet that disgusting would be found in a ladies room, but I don’t have enough firsthand experience with such venues to say for sure.

So to get any benefit from this product you will have to lug around PottyPax everywhere you go, just in case you encounter a dirty public toilet. Then after using it you will need to wipe down Potty Pax. Then you will have to fold it up and stick Potty Pax back in your purse, which means you will be transporting something that has been in close contact with a stranger’s fecal matter. Finally you will need to stick Potty Pax in your washing machine to make sure all the random poo and pee is washed off. Sounds fun.

Potty Pax offers two “youth designs”—Freddy the Frog and Liz Ladybug—to help your children forget that they are sitting on top of some anonymous person’s putrid crap.

The end of the video features on the street testimonials that include this comment from a smart aleck teenager: “Potty Pax is the best idea since popcorn.” And with that one sentence your movie theater snacking experience has been forever compromised.

  • As far as finding this in ladies’ restrooms, one of my earlier jobs included cleaning the bathrooms at Wal-Mart.

    I can speak with 100% confidence that they were always ten times as bad. Amazingly, all of us who cleaned got used to it.

  • What the…. there is a shitty hand print on the wall! What part of town do they live in??

  • Yes, even a ladies’ public toilet can get that nasty – but when it does, the bowl itself is usually heaped high with unmentionables too (not cartoon images, alas) and can’t be flushed. The bowl in this ad is remarkably clean for such an otherwise nasty toilet.

    Also, when it gets that filthy, there’s a stench so bad that you won’t want to hang around long enough to unfold your Potty Pax to use it, nor fold it up and put it away when you’re done. Maybe if they include a bonus clothespin for your nose…

  • My sister is a supervisor at our local Starbucks, and the stories she tells about just the ladies’ room would horrify you.

  • Anybody who has ever worked in retail can tell you stories like that, Thomas. People are disgusting.

  • Ugh, what an awful idea. I’ve seen someone try to peddle a reusable toilet seat cover on Etsy. Is there really a market for this type of product? I can’t believe more than one person thought a reusable toilet seat cover was a good idea. Here, let me wash the used seat cover along with my clothes in the same load.

  • Um… I would NEVER use that toilet EVER regardless of crappy Potty Pax!

    And as a lady, I can tell you that the women’s bathrooms are DISGUSTING! At my university, I walked into a stall and saw that someone wrote her name on the wall in a brown substance (I’m hoping to God it wasn’t poo, but brown color + restroom stall…). -_-
