The public restroom toothbrush

I found a public restroom today that was outfitted with a communal toothbrush, which was super awesome, given that my teeth were full of celery strings and twisted little bits of beef jerky that I couldn’t work out with my tongue. I’m tempted to tell you where this magical place is, but I’m afraid, if word gets out, someone will come along and ruin it for everyone else, just like that time about five years ago, when someone stole the piece of communal dental floss from the bathroom at the Popeye’s on Ellsworth.

Here’s a question for those of you who, like me, are all Kavanaughed out… What’s the most unexpectedly awesome thing that you can imagine finding available for free in a public restroom, other than a communal tooth brush, of course?

    Maybe a piece of coarse sandpaper for addressing one’s bunions.

    “Ypsilanti Community Schools Sinking Fund

    If everyone used the comments sections of to post their political flyers/spam, without regard for the subject matter, then, do you think the comments section here would be less “clean” or more “clean”?

    those japanese toilets are awesome. but I’d settle for free tampons and maybe a Plan B pill dispenser and condoms.

    The dreamiest freebies are in the women’s restroom at Bona Sera Cafe: lint roller, band-aids, elastic hair ties, individual flossers, mints, aspirin, needle and thread, Shout stain remover sheets, bobby pins, tampons, pads, deodorant, q-tips, cotton balls, lotion, talcum powder. Happily, no communal toothbrush can be found!

    Elsie beat me to it! Bobby pins are so important and they disappear the way my hair ties to, hopefully to a better place where they can be free of my thick hair. Props to anyone who puts out pads for us old ladies :)
