The survey also notes 91% of Americans say an unclean restroom has a negative impact on their perception of the business or establishment, while 11% of respondents admit they are germaphobes. Additionally, the three surfaces in a public restroom people dislike touching most are toilet stall door handles, restroom entrance doors and faucet handles. The survey also reveals 26% use a towel, sleeve or other material to open the restroom door after washing their hands.
