“We don’t like touching other people’s C.diff on bathroom door handles. As a matter of fact, even when visiting each other’s houses, we regularly find ourselves ripping an extra paper towel to grab the handle on a bathroom door, then fiddling with the feet to prop it open, and finally trying to masterfully throw the towel into the garbage bin located on the opposite wall. To stop all this silly juggling, Xela Innovations out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin has created a set of doorknobs that feature an automatic sleeve dispenser so that no two people touch the same handle twice” – Michael, Medgadget

    It’s not only bacteria, you know, 7 out of 10 door handles in public toilets have traces of semen on them šŸ˜€
    There is an alternative device that would let you to open the toilet door without touching them with your hands, which we described some time ago:
